I’ve been a Brawley’s customer since it’s inception and I’ve gotten only the best service from Mike and his mom and pops each and every time. Mike actually knows my taste and has never suggested a beer or wine that I haven’t enjoyed thoroughly. The prices are fair, the suggestions are free, and Boo is always glad to see you. Locals and vistors are welcome just the same. A true Charlotte landmark for the beer/wine connoisseur.

As soon as I entered I was greeted by a friendly black lab. The selection was great had some rare beers(for me) and beers that were highly rated. I plan on stopping here again next time I drive through Charlotte.

I was hugely impressed with this place. The owners appear to be the nicest mother-son team ever. A drunk bum wandered in and preceded to chat before stumbling back out into the street. Also the selection was fantastic. I will be back...down with Total Wines!

From the outside it looks like you might run into a big dude with tatoos that wants to kick your a$$ right as you walk in. Once you get in though you are met by a big, boisterous, fun loving, beer connoisseur that will be glad to help you find what you are looking for and relay some hilarious stories while doing it. His politics are right and his beer selection is awesome. Go by here if you are in town.

This place is nothing to look at but it is worth stopping in. It may not have the biggest selection or the best prices but it is where I shop.
The reason is that if the owner is there (most of the time) he is always helpful, makes good suggestions and is very knowledgeable.
I give the place a 15 on selection not because it has the most (maybee around 200) but simply that as he says "if it is worth having and available in Charlotte he has it".

Not a bad little place. They have all grades of beer. I was very happy to this this. The guy in there was a nice guy. Knows his stuff. Prices of some items were a bit questionable, but other than that, not a bad store at all.

Other customers called the guy working on both my visits Brawley. Anyway, he is awesome. He looked for beer for me that I couldn’t find on the shelves and provided plenty of information about some brews. He chatted politely and seems to have tried most everything there before ordering it. I tried to buy a porter, but he explained politely that it was the only one in the store because he had to sample it before making an order for it. To compensate, he gave me a free glass snifter. The beers are arranged very haphazardly, but the guy seems to know where everything is, so asking for help usually results in a pinpointed location. The cost of beers seemed about right (lower than in my area), but I live in TN where beer is way overpriced. Great selection, I visited two days in a row and different beer was available already.I love this place.

I love the selection and the staff is as helpful as they come. However, his rub is in his prices. Two or 3 dollars extra per beer may not mean much to other people but I’m a student. I think that I will sacrifice selection for price and hit the Total Wine down the street for most of my needs from now on.

Stopped in on a visit to Charlotte, looking for a few NC seasonals. Small but cozy atmosphere, kind of like a warehouse. Real nice selection of in-and out- of state beers, seasonals especially. Also a pretty nice selection of Belgians and foreign stuff. Very friendly and helpful staff too. Definitely worth the trip.
