Josh, are you serious? Please click these links and realize you're talking crazy talk, because ratings like this from visitors all over the country don't happen when people act like you're alleging they do. I've been going there for 3 years and have been treated excellently throughout my patronage, despite me being a relative beer newbie when I started shopping there. I have literally never, ever heard anyone with an opinion of CBX like yours. I'm very confused.

Hopturn - they have and do carry Holy City, just must not have been on tap when you visited?

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!

My only problem with CBX is that it's not located closer to me, which is probably a good thing or I'd spend most of my paycheck there. I love that place and I don't understand the "jerks" comment - every time that I've been in there they have been nothing but friendly, helpful, and, dare I say bonhomous?

Ok, ok. After discussions with many about my review, maybe i overreacted. maybe i was the one having the bad day and i did the same thing that i myself complained about and took it out on an undeserving party. I am giving 4 stars to even out to a 2.5 star rating. Jerks was probably a little too strong and it's really only one person who has rubbed me the wrong way so it's not fair to group the entire store in that light. I will maintain that the level of service i have recieved on many occasions was disheartening. I will maintain that their selection is incredible. And let's be serious, I will still go to some of those beer dinners because the quality, menu, and value is exceptional. Also, i wish i had an alias on citypaper website and not my name...haha

Well played, Josh. Well played. I'll file this under "high-quality internets."

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
