I pass through Rock Hill weekly and stop in to fill out my beer needs. I’m limited in Cola SC by our distributors so Frugal fills some gaps. Selection is limited and stock seems to rotate. Prices are inline.
Right off I77 near Carrowinds. Dedicated parking lot with plenty of room. Place is a big warehouse similar to a Total wine and more, but with not as good selection as most TWMs. Pretty reasonable prices and some SC beers, I would go back.
My second time here, but somehow I never rated it. Massive beer warehouse next to the massive fireworks warehouses next to the amusement park, just across the border south of Charlotte. Selection is not as large as you’d expect based on the size, but they did have a few things not available in NC. One of these was Westbrook Gose, which they had stashed in the back - you had to ask, and there was a one six pack limit. I think this is a really good policy that prevents hoarding. A worthwhile stop.

• HORRENDOUS SERVICE AND TERRIBLE STRONG ARM TACTICS. Here’s the story: Called the Fort Mill SC location two weeks a head of time to reserve special craft kegs of beer for my wedding. Beer manager (Javier?) totally dropped tha ball. Didnt check on the order and didnt call me indicating any problem. I showed up the day before the wedding to pay and he said, "oh well, he couldnt get the beer." He acknowledged that I ordered the beer and was expecting it. He offered a totally different beer for almost twice the price (of course) but nothing else. This beer wasnt even in the same category as the one reserved. He flat out refused to do anything other than charge me full price for a beer that I did not want. So here it was the day before my wedding, and he was trying to strong arm me and overcharge me thinking that I had no choice but to pay. Javier was so bad that at one point, he walked away from me and hid in the back room. When he came out 10 minutes later, I asked him what was happening. He stated, "oh, I thought someone else was helping you." Needless to say, I went somewhere else. There were two other stores within 10 minutes of Frugal’s that had the beer I wanted. I strongly recommedn you avoid the beer department - its cheaper elsewhere, even in the grocery store. As a side note, the wine manage (Auriel) was so upset about what was going on, he called me later and offered to do something about the situation, but it was too late, they’ve lost my business forever.
basically a warehouse with isles of beer and wine. A decent selection of beers, unfortunately not alot of singles. This place caters more to the wine enthusiast, but enough beers, especially southern brewers, to keep me coming back. Not the best beer store in Charlotte, but definately better than most.
A large, well-lit beverage warehouse. The selection of domestics and imports was quite impressive. However, there were very few single bottles available, and, unlike almost every other decent beer store I have ever frequented, they do NOT allow you to buy singles from six packs. Too bad. I could easily have spent a couple of hundred dollars in this place, but instead left with a measly collection of bombers and a tab under twenty-five dollars.
Visited this place a while ago, but still have fond memories. Its not much more than a warehouse, with isles of beer, wine and liquor. They had a good selection of things that I can’t get in Tennessee. I stocked up on Victory and Weyerbacher while I was there. Good place.
They have a huge selection of things to drink. Prices are good. It’s the Wal-Mart of Alcohol. It’s in SC so the taxes I think are lower than NC.

Good selection, very good prices for the most part. For really rare stuff you need to go to Brawleys though. For the south side of Charlotte, this is the best hands down.
I have noticed old beer here as well. For the most part I wouldn’t care, except a good amount of their beers get way too much sun exposure through their front windows.
I used to run a beer and alcohol store. This one is large (read big displays). In 30 or so visits only twice have I been offered help before I got to the register. The selection is fairly good. I think the distributors keep them up on beer..not in- house. They do use Rate Beer stat cards..wise choice. Prices are good. 2nd Rating: add on. I have purchased out of date beer (pilseners and lagers) that have had the best by date ripped off(6 to8 months after best by). These are on 12 dollar six packs, and Brooklyn beer 12 packs. Not cheap. I know this because the 12 pack box date was ripped off, yet the bottle still had the date on it inside the box. All beers should be dated. It is just good food industry practice. It helps whether you are cellaring, or looking for freshness.
