Great selection of bottles and growler fills. Nice employees who are knowledgable about local beer. Great locals and rare beer finds.

While visiting Charleston, my boyfriend and I found a Westbrook Brewing Company beer called White Thai that we loved. We took some home to all our friends who also enjoyed it. Imagine our sadness to find out it is only sold in parts of South Carolina and they do not have a wholesale thing. Even my local beer store could not order it for me.

In comes Charleston Beer Exchange to the rescue! They were able to (legally) ship me a twelve pack of the beer. The process is easy, you just send in a copy of your ID and then someone 21+ has to be available when the package arrives. They shipped it in about 2 days and had a good, solid amount of styrofoam around it to keep it safe in transit. It does ship strangely, mine was 12 individual beers instead of 2 6 packs or something like that, but it's all going in the fridge and being drunk anyway, so it worked for me. I would think about the person I was buying it for though if I were shipping it as a gift of some sort.

TL;DR: Will ship beer to your at your home state. nice people, prompt safe delivery. Slightly pricey but worth it!

Been in Charleston for two years now. This is a local place that offers extensive beer selection along with limited releases. CBE also has a rewards club card for residents and offers occasional tastings. The Growler Station is always rotating new taps. (Visitors- growlers make a good souvenir!) Good people own and run this place. Please help support local Business!

We stopped in the exchange to get some local favorites. Walked out with a 6 pack and a 64 oz growler w/draft beer for less than $20. Only downside is you can't sample the draft beer before you buy. So do your research before you commit.

Beers from all over the country and world.... Many sizes of growlers are available and there's lots in tap. A customer loyalty program is available as well. If you like beer, then this is the place.
