Visited later on a Tuesday evening. Located in a busier part of town, limited parking in lot and on the street. As you enter, feels like a deli / bodega, or a somewhat disorganized convenience store. The beer / wine is in the back, with the tiny bar area located halfway back. The Patchouli is strong with this place. The selection of bottles and draft was interesting and well chosen. Seemed to have a smaller range of beers than Brawlers, Good Bottle and Salud. Fun, interesting spot.
76 = ★★★ (Worth the visit, must for locals, and visitors with time)
I only use the total score, not the component parts.

Sort of a combination sandwich shop/beer and wine store/convenience store/bar. An eclectic place for sure. They have a decent selection of beer, but there are definitely places with better selection around town, but they have some interesting stuff that may not be carried elsewhere. Around 6 beers on tap, with a few tables inside, as well as a patio outside. I tried the sandwiches at the deli one of the times I visited and wasnít too impressed. Overall, a cool, kind of funky place, but not one of the better beer places in Charlotte in my opinion.

Good size dedicated parking lot. Beer as soon as you come in. Straight back is a sandwich shop. Back to the right is a small bar with a nice beer garden off to the side. I liked this better than their other location. Funky place.

I really liked this place. It has this kind of funkiness that feels very comfortable and relaxing. Itís part convenience store, with a hellaciously good beer selection, part deli, and part biergarten. I found some goodies like a B Nektar mead I hadnít seen elsewhere and the newest latest Sham,to-Terrapin collab. The only drawback are the high bottle prices but the drafts prices were very reasonable. I canít wait to.visit the other location.

In Charlotte for a work function and stopped by to have some bottles in the hotel. Pretty decent selection and a good mix of locals and non locals. Nice walk from City Center.

A little bit less character-ful than the other location, but still lots of character and even more beer. Deli, good beers with lots of locals on several taps, lots of locals eating lunch, decent parking, high prices on beer. I prefer the other location but this is a nice place too.

This is a great neighborhood market. Great atmosphere. It is pretty small, so the selection is limited.

A beer/wine/deli/candy store with taps and the ability to pick out beer from the cooler and either head out or grab a glass and head to the beer garden. Whatís not to like? Very artsy vibe and friendly service. I enjoyed perusing the North Carolina chilled beer section and relative rarities in the warm import section. Selection is good - I found many rarities and was able to select quality beers for my companions to try. Didnít have any of the food, but people appeared to be enjoying their sandwiches. Prices seemed reasonable - some Canadian beers were cheaper than in the Northeast. Overall a great place to visit, right on the light rail just a couple of stops from Downtown. Will definitely be back.

Similar conept to its other Charlotte location, but doesnít quite have the same vibe. Still has a good selection both in bottles and on tap, and its completely different from the other location, so its worth visiting both.

This location much resembles the original Common Market with some marked improvements. First it has a bitchiní brick alleyway which leads to a most excellent patio space and thus has much more seating. Second, it is in an area easily reached by the train. The only drawback is the beer selection, while still very, very serviceable, is just a hair shy of the other location.6 packs and bombers are available to take home or to drink on premise and there is no markup for on premise drinking. The taps are well chosen. I was thoroughly enjoying glasses of New Belgium Le Terroir for $4.33 after tax! This is a very hip store with a trendy crowd and was lively during our to visits without being slammed to the gills. It is worth noting the the website claims to be open until midnight seven days a week but we were here on Sunday and Monday and they closed at ten oíclock both nights.
