Visited here on a recent trip to Charleston, and Iím glad that I did. In the heart of historic Charleston, this place is not very big, but they make the best of their space. I spoke with one of the owners for a while, and he told me they had only been open six months. The selection is impressive for a shop of this size in business for less than a year. He seems to have pretty much all of the American craft brews that are available in SC - Stone, Bellís, Founders, Ballast Point, Great Divide, Avery, and the list goes on. They also have six taps form which they can fill growlers. Two of the taps were from Coast Brewing in Charleston, an IPA and a double IPA. The Belgian selection was impressive, among the better that Iíve seen, and that includes places like Stateline, Julioís, Bruising Ales, Bottleworks among others. Had several Cantillons, Drei Fonteinen, Dupont, etc. IN additon to the Belgians, they also have an excllent selection of other European beers, Mikkeller, Nogne O, etc. Prices were comparable to other similar shops. Definitely worth a special trip if youíre in the Charleston area.

Cool place. Visited while playing a soccer tournament in Charleston. Small - but they pack a lot of quality into the space they have. Mostly American crafts - I was able to find several Founders, Southern Tier, Ballast Point and Moylans I hadnít tried. They also had the local fare (Coast, Duck Rabbit, etc) and ten or so on tap for growler fills. The owners were there and were obviously beer lovers that knew their stuff. Definite stop anytime Iím in town.

had the pleasure of visiting the store on my recent trip to Charleston. this was of course after the owners pulled 9 amazing, rare, and want list beers off the shelves and held them for me until i could stop by! store is extremely clean, small, but very well laid out, and fits very well in the charleston downtown landscape. selection was great. picked up mikkeller brunch weasel, breakfast, black hole, all others pale, balast point dorado and victory at sea, peche mortel, black albert, and of course a growler of bear republic double rocket. sweet! the growler station is simply amazing and it sucks i donít live closer. the owners are true beer geeks and really know there stuff. they love to talk beer and appreciate their customers. my box was packed for my, my growler taped and labeled, and they threw in a free pint glass. definitely the best beer store in SC. canít wait to visit again!

wow, stumbled into this one just walking around town, my wife found it - good eye! small store but clean with nice wooden floors. they are very selective and only stock great bottles. i bought a duck rabbit porter, de struisse black albert, and a amager hr. fredericksen! on tap this week are Sierra Nevada Bigfoot, Foothills Torch Pilsner, COAST HopArt IPA, Stone Double Dry Hopped Old Guardian, Great Divide Claymore Scotch Ale, Moylans Hopsickle Imperial IPA, Stoudts Smooth Hoperator, Founders Breakfast Stout, Ballast Point Bourbon Barrel Black Marlin Porter. After a while I noticed a sign at the top of the cold case that read, "no, we donít sell fat tire ale." Ha Ha!!

Probably my favorite beer store. The owners and his employees are all friendly and open to questions. Theyíll just sit there and talk to you about anything and everything, making for a great atmosphere. Growlers, 64 oz glass jugs, are the major attraction. CBX holds nine beers on tap (as of March 17th, 2009) that they rotate constantly, and you can come in with your Growler and fill it up with any of these nine beers for a relatively low price. Rare beer Tuesday is always tempting, and the CBXchange club is like icing on the cake. If there is anything negative to say, itís that the store is so small that they just donít have tons of room for bottled beer.

This place was really cool. Itís right off of East Bay St. on the way to Rainbow Row from the bulk of the restaurants on East Bay. Be forewarned, the place is tiny, but since they arenít selling any liquor, wine, or even BudMillerCoors type beers, the space is well utilized. They even have taps to sell growlers of keg-only beers (although they canít sell you a pint to drink while browsing yet, unfortunately). Scott was working the register the evening I visited (he goes by BeerExchange here) and itís really nice to have a serious beer geek there in the store to answer any questions or give advice.
I have to say that I wasnít expecting much out of the beer scene on my trip to Charleston. South Carolina isnít known for being very friendly to alcohol, but I honestly canít think of a beer store that would put the Beer Exchange in itís shadow, at least in the Southeast. This is a must stop for any craft beer lover visiting this colonial city.

This place is incredible! no-nonsense bottle selection and a tap lineup for growlers, all jammed into a tiny space in the lovely historic district. A special keg is tapped each Tuesday for a tasting, and are super rare beers youíd be hard pressed to find anywhere else. We got the dregs of Allagash Fidelta. WTF? Iíd move to Charleston just to make this my local store.

Must say iím glad to have found this place. Iíve lived in Charleston for about 3 months now, and thought for certain i was in a complete beer wasteland. Thanks to them they have proved that wrong. Hands down best selection in the area, always got some cool stuff on tap to take home in growlers. And the guys at the store rock. 2 nights a week they do tastings. If your plannin on just walkin around charleston and findin the place, good luck its a little tucked away on little exchange street. Thanks guys, see ya soon

Perfect service, best possible selection in the state, almost always the cheapest prices.
Super rare beers are often on tap at the growler station as well. This is the ONLY place you should be buying your beer if you live anywhere near Charleston.
Insanely rare stuff on tuesdays. Racer X, Fedelta, Double Red Rocket
UPDATE: Undeniably the best possible beer store that could possibly exist in South Carolina. Continually bringing in super rare stuff and inspiring local stores to up their game. That is a true test of greatness.
