Located in the Baxter Village Shopping center in Fort Mill, SC (about 10 minutes south of Charlotte). This is a beer/wine store, the emphasis seems to be on wine, but they do have a semi-respectable beer selection. They also have a growler fill station with some great offerings, and a tasting bar.
The owner, Dave, is a terrific guy and seems to know his stuff when it comes to beer. Very nice atmosphere and a dedication to customer service that is hard to find.
I think the pricing is a little higher than most places but not overwhelmingly so. Overall a nice place to look if your usual place doesnít have what you are looking for.

This place is amazing. From the incredible craft beer amd hard-to-find wine selection, to Dave (the owner) being just an all around great guy, it makes me a bit sad that I donít get up to Fort Mill more often.

Originally reviewed: 7/16/09. Stopped here on my way back from Columbia. Saw it on Beerfly, thought Iíd check it out. Wow! This is a freaking excellent beer stop! Walking in, I can tell itís mostly a wine bar, but tucked in the back corner is a sweet gold mine of a beer section. They donít carry the largest of quantities, but the quality of beer they do carry more than makes up for it. I saw some from Ballast Point (Sculpin just arrived), Hoppiní Frog (BA B.O.R.I.S. just came in that day), tons of Stone, Rogue, Southern Tier, Lagunitas, Weyerbacher, Founders, Ommegang, etc. And the prices were all very reasonable; actually much cheaper than my local spot, which shall not be named. If I were local here, I would hit this spot up all the time. I talked to the bartender quite a bit, and he was very knowledgeable and helpful. Told me they have a quick-freezer in the back if I wanted to pull a bottle off the wall and consume there at the bar. Pretty cool. He was telling me all about the tasting he and his buddies host, even showed me the list from their last meeting. Now thatís a man that appreciates good beer. Very cool dude. I will recommend this spot to anybody and everybody that is driving through, or lives around there.

Looks like a nice little wine bar. Small but solid selection. Prices are meh, but much of the stuff is high gravity or hard to find. Also that location is natrually going to be a little more pricey. Offered to chill some bottles for me, which is a plus. Will definetely check in here from time to time. Spoke with the owner 2nd time in, he sounds dedicated to giving a quality selection, not wasting any of his limited space. Yes, the Eel River stout was excellent. Good Founderís selection, nice since Iím from Grand Rapids.
11/09 Growler stations really open up to getting some rare gems. Definetely a must stop now in the Charlotte area.

A wonderful little place. While traveling, I stopped almost an hour before opening time, and the owner, seeing me peering dejectedly through the window, kindly unlocked the doors and greeted me warmly and with enthusiasm. We had an enjoyable chat about regional beers and other matters. Fine selection. And I cannot say enough about the friendly service, which even included a substantial discount.

Dan was very helpful. Selection was small, but presented a more than fair choice of beer type. Dan was knowledgable about his beer and beer in general. Bear Republic and Eel River beers were a must have. Stoudtís selection was solid as well. I will visit on any trip to Charlotte in the future. A+

For limited shelf space has a really good selection. Not a single beer purchase would lead you to a drain pour. All highly rated or underrated beers. Dan was very helpful and knowledgeable. I wasnít given a 1 0z tasting...he split the Bear Republic Racer 5 (1pt.6oz) with me. Now that is service that ended with us both smiling. Has food to go with the tasting but I did not try. Wonít rate the food, can only imagine its top shelf. Will return over and over. Offered to order for me what he could get, at a discount.

This is a nice little beer shop. Only rare craft beers available and good sized growler station for a small beer section. Wish there were a little more selection but what they have is always good.

Half wine store and half bar with a nice sized patio. They didnít have a ton of beer but what they had was solid and thoughtful. You could make a pick 6 and itís 10% off of 6 or more beers. They also have 11 taps of local craft. The prices were very reasonable and thereís plenty of free parking in the back. A very pleasant experience.
