Nice selection of craft brews and tons of imports. They organize their singles for making your own six packs by country which is helpful. We unfortunately have no comparable sized place in Knoxville with the selection that TotaI Wine carries. Ergo I am relegated to loading up at total wine during trips to visit my brother & sister in law in Charleston. One knock is that their website only allows you to view their wine stock. There is no mention of beer anywhere, perhaps due to state laws? It's a multistate chain of stores so who knows. I always find a pleasant suprise or two when I visit. Definitely worth a visit despite being a little out of the way.

This place is diamond in the rough, after visiting this place I will not be going to world market anymore. They had a lot of different beers here. All though I hoped they would have a better sam adams collection I was able to find scotch ale there. They had a lot of sam smith and many american small brews. I found some belgian beers but it was limited since most are to strong for South Carolina law ( I thought prohibition was over) if you live in charleston and like to try new beers this is the only place you need to go.

A great beer/wine/liquor super store. The liquor store is separate from the beer and wine. As a beer drinker I go here almost solely for that with an occasional wine selection. Huge selection of beers of all types. Prices are fairly reasonable and the service, regarding finding things is excellent. I like this place for a large stock up. They seem to have growler fills too, but I am not positive as I never tried it but I see the taps. This is strictly a store as CBX and not a hang out such as Taps or Homegrown. For what they do and offer they do it great. Let's just say those of us that live in the Charleston Metro area are blessed to have a multitude of places to go for craft beer. Some focus on shopping some on restaurant, some on drinking and some on a little of everything. I really hate to rate nyone over the other. They all have something to offer. I am a regular here too as well as other places I have reviewed. This store is great and the staff and cashiers are nice people. Come in and load up. Or go to Taps or go to CBX. But go!!!

Wow, what a store!
Biggest selection of wine I've ever seen.
Beer selection was also terrific. Lots of craft brews at great prices. Considering the alcohol content limits in SC, they still had a huge selection.
I really liked the singles selection, allowing you to make up a mix 6 pack.
They had sixes ( cold if you wanted ) and twelves of all kinds of beers. European beers were available as singles.
Big store with lots of space. Help was available, if you needed it.
Overall, a great store. Make sure to stop in if you visit Charleston.

This is one of the better beer selections in the Chucktown area. They are fairly new, but have made a big impact. I've went there a few days ago, and the 6 pack/12 pack selection is great. The singles selection is quite large as well. They've got more of a selection in singles than they do in 6 packs. As far as South Carolina goes, this selection is up around the top. Easily top 3. The staff was helpfull in locateing beers and offering to order other beers they don't have. It's good to see the Charleston area starting to get this onslaught of good beer stores. I thought I was going to be condemned to crappy beer selection due to low alcohol content.

Note: I visited the Total Wine on the day it opened. Things could have changed a smidge since then.
This Total Wine was a great addition in Charleston. The aisles are extremely wide and the store is well lit. It was also impeccably clean. The selection was good and the shelves were constantly being restocked during my visit. I was asked more than once if I needed assistance.
The only thing the store lacked on my visit was a decent single bottle selection. I believe they had stocked the shelves with sixers and did not have extras for the single bottle/make your own sixpack area.
The price was the best thing. By comparison to NC prices on most everything they were better by $1-$1.50 per sixpack. One of the more popular brands in NC was nearly $2 a six less at Total Wine Charleston. I'll stop there again the next time I hit town.

Total wine has an amazing selection and offers prices that are as good as anywhere else in town (grocery stores and other beer specialties included), expensive beer is expensive and the same holds true here, but you never overpay in comparison to its competition. They have recently opened a 5 or 6 tap growler stations as well and do beer tastings every Thursday, very cool! Can't grade the atmosphere too high because its pretty much a grocery store for winos and beer heads. Best place for beer in WA or anywhere else in the area dollar for dollar

Total Wine has a pretty good selection, and was where I started getting into Belgians. I asked some of the employees there for recommendations, and they pointed me to someone that was more knowledgable in that area. Boy did he start me on some good stuff. The stuff they have there is more popular and available, but they have a TON of different things that you would have a hard time finding. You won't see the more rare beers like you will at the beer exchange, or the really personal experience, but its worth a stop if you are nearby.

So selection wise total wine really cannot be beat in charleston. But the main reason for this is the amount of space they have. Only the last two rows of the giant store are devoted to beer, but hey pretty much cover everything available.
Although on my last trip their beer guy was not there....has has been on several visits...he is extremely helpful. But the store is easy to navigate on your own. They have all your macro's and just about every micro, import and craft that I have seen in the state. Price wise I have to say inexpensive just because they have everything as cheap or cheaper than anywhere else(once again this has to do with the size of the opperation).
They also sell just about every beer as a single. If you are afraid to pay that money for the $10 or $11 dollar six pack...you can buy one to try it first.
The experice at the cash register this visit was out of the ordinary, they item I was purchasing rang up at a different price than was marked....it took a good 5 minutes to get it taken care of, but they were very nice about it.

Total Wine is a chain store across half the country, so I knew what to expect, for the most part. Forgot about the local laws, so distilled spirits are separated from beer/wine, even in this day and age. Eh, no big deal. What I saw of the liquor section was nicely done, with prices about average compared to what I see at home in FL.
Stepping over to the beer aisle, I was impressed with selection, for the most part. Not as many regional brews as I would have thought, but I still pulled two boxes' worth of bombers. Unlike most TW stores I've been in, this one focuses HEAVILY on imported stuff. Usually the ratio to USA-import is about 50-50, but this one seemed to be more like 70-30. Not a bad thing, just saying. Had I not been constrained by limits on my vehicle's trunk and my bank account, I could have bought another 150+ brews that I've never had before; that's not a situation I encounter very often!
My only real complaint was the (obviously) very busy employee who almost ran me over with nary a "oops, sorry" or an "excuse me". no big deal, but polite service personnel are always a plus. The checkout girl was friendly and helpful, though.
Given the other stores available, I'd opt for one of those for regional beers(at cheaper prices, too), but I saw nothing to compare with the selection of imports that TW had.
