When Beer Exchange co-owners Rich Carley and Scott Shor and staffer Brandon Plyler aren't hosting dinners, planning festivals, or dealing with distributors, they can be found hustling in their shop on Exchange Street. Back and forth between the front deck to the growler station, they give their customers their full attention. Relative newcomers to the craft beer scene receive informative and helpful suggestions from the CBX team. Hardcore beer enthusiasts get respectful, unsnobby insight and serious debate over the clarity, condition, aroma, flavor, acidity, and mouthfeel of any beer on the shelf. They know their stuff as well as any top-notch sommelier or hot-shot retail salesman in town.
