Similar format as Salud. Mostly a bottle shop featuring not only national craft beer brands but also Carolina locals. Small bar in back with several tap lines. No food available but there are options close by.
In a location surrounded by breweries, this place actually doesn’t need the help. A good selection, good prices, nice staff, a local crown offering suggestions and a bar how can you go wrong. Selection is good an varied with lots of locals. Tap list si pretty good as well. If you are doing breweries in the area, you will likely be close by. Make this a stop.
Visited around dinner time on a Tuesday. Easy to find, located on a busy corner with a parking lot behind the building. Well organized racks and coolers of beers, with a comfortable bar in back. 12 beers on draft, many interesting choices lots of locals. Solid single beer selection. Very friendly and knowledgeable service. I enjoyed my visit, solid store.
82 = ★★★½ (Solid place, near the top of the list for locals and visitors)
I only use the total score, not the component parts.
The Good Bottle Co. is all business (and I mean that in a hood way)! They have their beers organized clearly by style and they have a very down to earth no nonsense approach to their beers. I can make my own customized 6 pack and they have quite an array of different craft beers!
This is in the yuppy part of town with suitably yuppy clientele. The selection is large, especially the bottles, which are available for on site consumption or take away. There is a large bar in back with service, and a small non-serviced bar up front. Sadly there was no beer list available. Server told us the styles of each beer, but not the names or the brewwers, we were just expected to choose a style. Very odd. Beers were available in 8 or 16 ounces regardless of style or abv, also odd. The beers were good, though, selection was good, so I’ll be back.
Dedicated parking in the back. Small bar back right. Cans front right, shelves in the center refrigerated on the right. The guy was quite helpful, but not real knowledgable. Nice quantity and good quality. Hope to come back.
Nice store, with the beer sorted by style, but with a prominent local section. Small bar area in the back, with 12 taps. The service was very friendly, helpful, and very knowledgeable. The bottle prices seemed a little high, but not out of the ordinary for NC, and the draught prices were great. Overall, this is a fairly small, low-key kind of shop, but it has everything you could want in a quality beer store.
An excellent bottle shop. Tons of great local options in addition to a wide range of other US and international brands. Quite good value. Very clean and efficient layout. Also growler fills. Friendly staff. Bathroom available. Definitely worth a stop.

One of the best bottle selections in Charlotte. This store is filled with shelves of hundreds of bottles of different beers, including a great selection of local NC beers as well as some interesting foreign imports. They also have around 12 beers on tap, including a couple Wicked Weed beers last time I visited. My favorite store to visit and pick up some new beers.
Updated rating: I’m going to knock a few points off my original score. I’ve found a number of local bombers are marked up $2-$4 more than some other local stores. Also, while they have great selection, I’ve noticed there isn’t as much turnover in products to assure fresh bottles. I personally stay away from the IPA section. But with all that being said, still one of the best stores in Charlotte and one of my go-to stores.
