The guys are always great when I go in and always willing to spend a few minutes discussing new arrivals or finding something new that suits your palate. CBX is a great supporter and advocate of the craft beer movement in Charleston as well.

This is a great beer store hidden in the historic area of Charleston. The guys here know their stuff, and were very knowledgeable. I found their selection very good especially the foreign and local stuff. The stuff on tap is rare and even rarer on Tuesday nights. Get on their mailing list if you live near by or not worth noting what they got. They with help of Coast Brewing company organize one of the best brew festivals -

By far the best beer store in Charleston. Awesome staff, super friendly & knowledgeable. Amazing American & European bottle selection, plus growler fills. Rare beer Tuesdays and often special casks on the weekends.

Wow. Lots of beers you wonít find anywhere else in SC, nice staff, and a growler station (w/ "rare beer Thursday" selections). A whole lot of very good beer is a very small place. Kinda pricey, though.

These guys make the most out of their small space. Tons of beer is in here, easily the best selection in the entire state. The rare keg Tuesday and Thursday is usually something very desirable from what Iíve seen on their website. We were lucky enough to pick up a growler of El Camino Unreal Ale. Mini kegs, pony kegs, basically anything in the entire store is for sale. I would personally have liked to have seen some more American micros, but that is just my personal tastes. For those who prefer Scandinavian or Belgian beer this place delivers big time. There were several imports available that I had never even seen before in person. Every beer is available as a single. Honestly, I donít know what these guys can possibly do different to make this store better.

Good selection...not the best but decent. (Okay it is the best in Charleston). I think this will improve as more brewers ship to South Carolina. Cost is a little steep but it is downtown Charleston. Again, decent selection, especially for such a small store. I do like the fact that they have growlers.

If you live or visit Charleston then there is no other place to buy beer. These guys do it right. The store is in the historic district downtown so the prices can be a little higher but that is completely negated by the service, staff knowledge, and overall selection.

Downtown Charlestonís beer hotspot. Small and effective packed full of great/rare/hard-to-find beer! If youíre making a trip to Charleston - youíve got to stop by this place! I stopped in with my wife and spent a small fortune on a good amount of beer! Reasonably priced product, knowledgeable, friendly staff and all the beers I want to drink!

What can I say that hasnít been said? These guys just íget ití! Floor to ceiling, all wall, wood shelf bottle selection. Growlers (Coast!) A little cramped, esp. w/ crowds; but thatís 1/2 its character. Plenty of rare shit. Iís fucks w/ CBX!
