Best Beer Selection (Retail)
1820 Ashley River Road. West Ashley
The big facility maintains a broad range of lagers and ales — from new-on-the-scene micros and curious high-grav selections to domestic and imported standards and favorites.
The Charleston Beer Exchange
14 Exchange St. Downtown
Proprietors Rich Carley and Scott Schor stock an expansive variety of beer in their little shop, including classic styles and specialties from Europe and American mircrobreweries. It's the best place downtown to stock up on growlers of locally-brewed Coast beer. Rare Beer Tuesdays are a hit, too.
