Solid selection especially for Hilton Head. The growler station is nice and free samples on Wednesday is even better. I think everything was better two years ago, but this is still my first beer stop on the island.

Visited midday to grab some beers for the Hilton Head vacation. Most of the beer is stored warm on shelves on both sides of the narrow store. Small fridge up front, and the growler fill bar in the back. Unfortunately, the draft beer is for growler fills only, no pints while you shop (assume this is local law, people running this seem like they would do this if they could). Selection was solid, single was pretty broad, a good selection of local beers. I picked up a Boon Gueze, Westbrook IPA and White Thai and a bunch of Palmetto singles. Easily the best beer store I visited on the Island.

76 = ★★★ (Worth the visit, must for locals, and visitors with time)

I only use the total score, not the component parts.

Was here last summer--relatively small but quality selection with an INCREDIBLE amount of regional stuff. Itís a little pricy so hereís my suggestion: take the short walk to the Piggly Wiggly (which has a damned good selection for a supermarket) thatís practically next door for the more common regionals, then get the seasonals and specials from Growlers.

Friendly service if you are used to abuse akin to that in Gran Turino with Clint Eastwood, somewhat dry humor. Based on the reviews I read, I expected more - thanks guys... Music was late 80ís metal and hard rock. Wednesdays 4-6 has free beer tastings - limit 3. Great value. Got 4 12oz bottles, two bombers and a growler filled for $35.

A little hard to find the first time, but well worth the effort. Terrific selection of Belgians (big and small bottles), larger scale craft brewers, and tons of regional (SC, NC) brews available in bottles. Good tap selection for take-out, but they donít serve pints ... just tiny tastes to decide what to fill the growler with. Reasonable pricing (at least compared to PA!) and a good turnover of merchandise. Friendly and knowledgeable staff. Will definitely shop here every time I come down. Best bottle selection on the island.

April 2013. I knew I shouldíve brought a couple growlers on vacation. The 16 taps in this place looked fun and featured some otherwise unavailable regionals, but I didnít want to buy another growler ... I have enough already. So I still managed to drop $90 on single bottles with a smattering of some southern finds not otherwise available in my hometown. The staff was friendly and clearly beer-nerd-ish. Definitely the place ot check for beers on the island.

I read about this place on BA and decided to make the trek this morning with some friends. We traveled about 80 miles one way to get this store, but it was defiantly worth the trip. Growlers has just about every major craft brewery represented that you can think of well stocked. There are plenty of selections from Bellís, Rouge, Dogfish head, and The Great Divide are all well represented. There is also plenty of local breweries from GA to SC represented. The centerpiece of this location however is the Growler bar. The owner gladly served my pals and I samples until we arrived at our desired selections. I settled on the Sierra Nevada Fresh Hop Celebration Ale, quite delish I must say. All in all I love this store and recommend it to anyone seeking out great beer. I will be back eventually and will continue to spread itís praises.

GREAT shop. We got a half gallon growler of Coast HopArt IPA. 16 taps, and a lot of great bottles. My go to shops, Greenís and Hop City, both have a better selection....especially with Lambics and Belgian beers, but for a spring break trip this place freaking rocks. Donít believe google maps for the location. Itís in the Piggly Wiggly shopping center.

Located about three shops down from a grocery store. Really cool little shop with a myriad of bottles to choose from and a row of taps in the back that provided various-sized growler fills. Lots of southern brews to chose from that we donít get on the west coast. Loved this place!
