Descent selection of singles for Charleston, typically 100+. Usually 20+ different six-packs to choose. Usually 20+ refrigerated six -packs. Due to distribution you are not likely to find hard to get stuff. Drug Emporiumís have some of the best prices in town. Mountain State is usually here, Bridge Brew Works on occasion, and Greenbrier Valley six packs.

A tired-looking drug and dry foods store on the outskirts of Charleston. Roughly 75 beers available. WV doesnít seem to get great distro, so donít be too surprised to find not much more than stuff from Sam Adams and Rogue. Some common Belgians were also available. The real upshot of my visit was finding some local beer from Mountain State available in singles. Prices were cheap, service is non-existent. Overall, this is definitely a place to check out if youíre hunting for West Virginian beer.

Well, I hadnít intended to stop by here, but I literally drove right by it, so... Big drug store, as the name implies, with limited non-perishable groceries. Nothing too special here and no rarities, but it does look like they had pretty much everything available to them brewery wise, had a ton of singles and prices were reasonable. No employees in the beer/wine section. I wouldnít go out of my way to go here, but it might be a decent place to pick up a tick or two.

Stopped in late afternoon on a Saturday. Their beer selection is all up toward the front of the store in the middle. Pretty much everything is available in singles. All the craft stuff is, anyhow. There isnít much here I hadnít found anywhere else besides the Bridge Brew Works stuff. They did have a few interesting looking big bottles of Sam Adams stuff. Pricing was very good. I didnít get anything, but had I not just come from Vintage Cellar in Blacksburg, VA, that might have been different.

Itís sad, but Drug Emporium is among the best selections of beer in Charleston. They have quite a few single-bottle selection, probably 60+ as well as 20-30 four/six packs. More than likely if you can find it in Charleston, you can find it at Drug Emporium, and the prices are not bad.
