Re: “Bottles

They have dogfish heads brew, love it, have alot of other craft brewers, love it. Seems they have some cool events which I hope to make on the 2nd of feb and its in mt. Pleasant and saves me a trip to west Ashley. I believe someone said that getting in and out sucks, so does going to total wine so stop your "wineing"( and yes I know how I spelled it for you spellcheckers out there). I'll be popping my head in there more then I probably want too....

Re: “Bottles

It is in "my opinion" after 5-6 visits, event tastings and the fact that I have spent close to $500 (including an overpriced $35 bottle of champagne for New Years) that... I'm utterly disappointed!

Bottles, is definitely limited in their wine selection and inventory. Their wine selection is 1/5 of Total Wine and maybe a little larger than the average grocery store which is to me is disappointing. The staff knowledge up to and including management is sub-par and uneducated when it comes to descriptions and pairings...also extremely disappointing. The beer selection and inventory is okay, but not great and I feel there are to many "shelf fillers" that will go outdated. Be cautious and careful when buying! They claim on there Facebook page that "Bottles has largest selection of beer in Charleston." I don't think so...even the Beer Guru and well respected writer and columnist Timmons Pettigrew said "Really??". I think they might carry 1/2 of that at Total Wine and maybe 1/4 of what Charleston Beer Exchange jams into there small locations inventory. The liquor selection is good, but over-crowded and poorly organized. The have too much inventory face-outs to the point it's overwhelming in size. The cigar humidor selection and inventory was a joke too!

As I said, it is in "my opinion"...that I give Bottles an "E" for effort (not excellent either) and have to agree with previous comments that their education to close a deal is great, and their staff up to management's product knowledge and education to pairings is disappointing.

I also have to agree with a previous post, it is difficult to get in and out of that plaza regardless of the exits. If you don't go to the light to turn left you'll see what I mean. I was witness to a traffic accident a few weeks ago when someone pulled out from the main entrance.

Re: “Bottles

Whateverz..

You have been a member for what a week. You obviously work at Brixx and take offense to my review of them back in July 2010. I did not register on here to self promote where I work as you obviously have. I have given honest reviews and unlike yours unbiased

Re: “Bottles

ALEYEAST, 1st, I didn't call you an internet troll. Second, you are entitled to your opinion as is everyone else in the world. I was simply stating the fact that you never seem to have anything nice to say about anything. That's all. You're a beer geek... we get that. You seem to know loads about beer and wine. Good for you. It just seems that with all your negative comments, there must be at least 1 positive comment you could make.

And I have been in Bottles. And I agree with you, the wine selection is somewhat limited and the beer selection is pretty good. They're not trying to be another CBX. And neither is Total Wine. Each of these stores has their own niche, and I think they all do a pretty good job at filling that niche. I wasn't trying to insult you. I hope you have a very Merry Christmas and a prosperous New Year!!! Cheers!!!

Re: “Bottles

whateverzzz & kma71- I am the internet troll? I do not blast other peoples opinions with no factual backup. I will gladly give you my email so you can contact me. When asked, I have given countless free advice to shop owners who unfortunately mostly ignore it. I gave them an honest review, they can act on it or not. They are in the honeymoon period of business, customers like myself will see them throuhg the long haul.

As a side note, I can pretty much guarantee I have dropped more cash in Bottles than the the two of you combined.

Wine selection appears to be improving, still annoyed at multiple placements, and would like to see some more wines laying down and better organized. Oh wait that's an opinion and that is apparently frowned upon in this forum.

Re: “Bottles

Bottles is awesome! What a novel idea for a storefront in the Charleston area. Way to go!

"aleyeast" is the definition of an internet troll. Pay him/her no mind. He talks a good game in the comfort of his Internet world, but I doubt he has the balls to actually voice his "feedback" to the owners/managers he claims to be trying to help "make things better".

Keep up the good work! I look forward to my next visit. :)

Re: “Bottles

I am glad you agree. It is you who commented on my post, not the other way around. I see this is a trend with you, very original.

My advice to you is to go in to Bottles, and give it an honest review. You never even reviewed it, just trashed other peoples opinion. I would be willing to bet my background knowledge of the subject is magnitudes away from yours.

Re: “Bottles

I didn't argue any of your points because I believe that you don't have the capacity to comprehend any comments against your point of view. Because after reading several of your comments, not just about Bottles, I have come to the conclusion that YOU are the most important person in your life. Carry on...

Re: “Bottles

I will just give them 5 stars like everyone else who has absolutely no clue does; will that make you happy.

I notice you don't argue any of my points, likely because you do not have the capacity to argue them.

My comments can be used by the owners however they wish. My hope is they use them to make things better.

I based my opinions on about six visits.

Re: “Bottles

Hey ALEYEAST, do you ever have anything nice to say??? Are you one the co-owners of the CBX?? Is that why you insist on putting down Bottles and Total WIne???? Just wondering...

When did seating become expected in alcoholic beverage retailers? Inquiring minds want to know.

Re: “Bottles

The store has a nice selection of beer and wine...Cigar Humidor needs some help...As for the liquor, Dantes right down the street next to the Pig has the best prices in town for booze...And the staff is easy on the eyes!

Re: “Charleston Beer Exchange

Great selection but the guys that work there are jerks. if you're not in the beer industry they talk down to you like you're 18 with a fake id looking to get some old styles on the cheap. i refuse to participate in any event put on by these guys becuase of their attitude (besides brewvival). Good thing they're no longer the only game in town for rare beer

Re: “Charleston Beer Exchange

whatever dude. i love charleston beer exchange. the guys that work there are knowledgeable and friendly...extremely so. they will drop whatever they are doing to answer questions, and their draft beer growlers are a great value. only complaint is that they should already be carrying Holy City!

Re: “MUSC Wellness Center Auditorium

I truly enjoyed the photography class. I have always been fascinated by the field, but never could find a good book that gave me a basic understanding of the fundamentals of a camera. He really enjoys teaching and gives positive constructive criticism. I highly recommend this class to anyone who wants to improve their techniques, plus he is an amazing talent! IT'S WORTH IT!!!!!!!

Re: “MUSC Wellness Center Auditorium

Really enjoy the class and I am learning a lot. For me personally I would like to move a little faster. I do not want to take to much information in, but I do feel like there is a little more I can learn in the 1 1/2 class. I would recommend taking his class.
