Just like pretty much any other that you go into, this was no exception. I try to always visit as many stores as I can when I am in an area, so I hadn't been here and saw it coming up down the road and ran in for a second. Decent selection, nothing really outstanding, but then again I didn't really expect it. Good amount of imports and a great selection of regionals. I thought the singles were a bit lacking to be honest compared to some of the other places I have seen, but hey at least they had a singles section. Overall not a bad place, prices were decent, but I am pretty sure you could find a better selection in a lot of other places, just not sure totally where in this city, hopefully I will be back soon and can find one.

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.

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.

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.

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.

This is a decent place to buy your beer, though its warehouse quality makes you a little leery of freshness. There's a decent selection - it has quite a few Belgians, which I like - but it seems like they waste a lot of space on crappy macrobrewed beers. The service can really be an issue. None of the staff will volunteer to help if you're standing there browsing, and when you ask for help they might not know what they're talking about. This place has decent prices - better than most. Overall, it's a good place to buy beer, but Charleston needs someplace better.

This was one of my go to places for good beer when visiting Charleston until The Charleston Beer Exchange opened. Large selection of quality American and imports. Every bottle I checked was will within freshness date. They also have a singles selection that is top notch. The staff is helpful in finding a particular beer but not for much else. Prices are usually better than supermarkets and they have a much better selection. Not a bad stop if you are on that side of town, but CBX is the go to place if you are in town.

This is a great source of quality beers in an area where they are otherwise not available. The selection is above average. The service is outstanding if you reach one of a few select employees, but in general you may find yourself lost. The general beer knowledge is still slightly lacking.
They have available a product list and will add you to their mailing list upon request. In general, they do stock what they list, while it may not be on the shelf and you may need to ask.
Prices are much better than average, especially if you buy in bulk.
I had a great experience at this Total Wine today (3/16/07). If you are ever there, ask for Ernest. He is extremely knowledgeable.

As others have mentioned they have a lot to choose from. Plenty of Microbeers to be found here and the prices are comparable to other places in Cherleston. Plenty of Smuttynose,Boulder,Lagunitas and other crafts to choose from and they were up to date on all the seasonals. However, the one area I could see some improvement on is a more expanded import sections, such as Belgiums, German, and English beers. Overall a good place to find beer in Charleston and convienent if you are in West of the Ashley. Service was on par with other grocery stores and the checkout lady was friendly. Beer quality was good and did not find any out of dates.

Total Wine has a large number of beers from around the globe as well as a variety of US microbrews and macrobrews. The hophead might nitpick and say that the US selection leans too heavily in favor of the macros and leaves some great brewers like Founders and New Holland out in the cold. People have questioned the freshness of the stock, and I can't vouch for or against this, but it is always something to watch out for in a big box warehouse. The staff is absolutely zero help for the most part.
