Ever since South Carolina raised the cap on abv this place has continued to get better and better every week. As you walk in you come straight to a small walkin cooler that has a good selection of high gravity beers and other staples. So if your in need of something on the way somewhere check in here. Just outside the walkin there are shelves divided up by country. They have many great selections and are one of the first places to get anything new in SC. There is usually at least one person in the store at all times that knows the beer in and out.

I visited Green's a few days ago, mostly due to my love of the Atlanta location, so it was my first place to look for products not available in GA while driving through SC
The quality of beer is good - I cannot complain about what I got, which admittedly was only 3 bottles of beer. They had Bear Republic and New Holland and both were fresh. I imagine this location doesn't quite turn over beer as well as the ones in Atlanta do, but its not like some stores where a case of beer takes 6 months to sell through.
The service was surprisingly good - the ones in Atlanta tend to have friendly staff, but not necessarily helpful. A girl working there was very conversational about beer, even remarking how she used to have to go to the Green's in Atlanta for beer. She was very nice and helpful, and beer-knowledgeable staff are pretty few and far between in the Atlanta stores, so that was a pleasant surprise.
The selection is a bit above average - but probably very good for SC. They had Bear Republic which is what I was there for, but unfortunately were out of the Hop Rod Rye. The selection of germans and british beers was pretty standard, and the American micros was decent as well (most of the big names, with some good southern brews as well). The belgian selection was really lacking though, it just has not caught on, and as a huge fan of Belgian ales, I can't hype the selection too much.
Overall, lots of fresh beer at reasonable prices will keep me coming back to Green's in Greenville as long as Bear Republic is not offered in Atlanta.

This is one interesting place. It's huge. Tons of beers you don't want to look at again when you walk in but to the right there was a whole section dedicated to micros and imports. One cool thing was that if you paid cash you got a discount. I found a couple beers from Coopers that I hadn't seen elsewhere for a good price. Not the greatest selection in the world but it has a little bit of everything for any kind of drinker. In fact, there's a liquor store connected but you have to go through the door. I felt separated from a different breed because I could see the people in the liquor store through the glass wall. Alright I've drifted enough from the point. This place offers some quality stuff but not as much as you'd expect from the size of the store. Check it out.

Lived here for almost two years and this is my first stop into Green's!! Upon walking in I made the mistake of going to the Liquor side( note to self, go to the right). After finding my way I strolled right into the Micro section, which they basically direct you to, and was pleasently suprised. Very nice selection, including everything local, RJ Rockers, Thomas Creek, Terrapins, Duck Rabbits, Palmettos, etc. Also, for the first time in SC so Victory! Now we are under a cap(6%) so there was Prima Pils and Hefe. But damn, not bad. Impressive overall selection for a SC store. Further down the wall I ran into the import section which was chock full of goodies, some bottle aged, lots of germans and english brews, very nice. Cold fridge was basically macro's and some micro six packs. Big dissapointment that there was not a singles wall or section. Overall this was a very nice store, if we get the cap raised it will be off the hook!

I did not have much time to look around but I did see quite a few micros. This place is easy to spot off 385 but actually finding it is another story. I ended up going through a mall parking lot to get here. And as someone earlier stated, the doors are hard to understand. Two sets of doors. You go in the first and the second set is coming out. So you have to swith over to the other set. So I too looked like an idiot trying to enter through a one way exit.
The beer slection was very good, with the beer and liqour sides being seperate. There was a long cooler along the wall with about half micro and half macro. Most selection is warm. I ended up with a bottle of Sam Adams Chocolate Bock for $12.99 which is several dollars cheaper than I have seen it. The staff were freindly and helpfull. I would stop in here again sometime. Too bad SC law lets them sell Everclear under the same roof where only 6% beer can be. This place has lots of potential if the cap gets lifted.

I often visit this location on my many trips to Greenville. The rather small store is located between Haywood Mall and I-385 on Congaree Road. Parking can be a problem during busy times like Friday afternoon. Prices are good but not great. I have noticed that the Green's in Columbia near Harbison has lower prices and a better selection probably due to the Total Wine store less than a mile away. Selection is probably the best in the upstate but can be hit or miss at times. Local brews (Thomas Creek, Palmetto, etc.) are readily available which is a plus. I down graded the service since they have a dual pricing structure. Whip out your credit card and you will pay a 2-3% upcharge.

This is a huge beer and liquor store. I had a bit of trouble actually walking in to the establishment. Every other door is locked and every other door says "Use other door". So after 2 minutes of looking like an idiot, I finally fell upon a small Mecca of beer in SC. Nobody asked me if I needed assistance but I didnt need assistance anyway. Huge selection of beer. Only downside is that most of the good stuff is warm so immediate consumption is not likely. All macros and typical imports and crafts as well as a good selection of 22oz and 1pint .9oz were in the cooler. I purchased some Thomas Creek which is a local brewery. Also purchased growlers of Rogue Dead Guy for $8.48 which is the cheapest I have seen anywhere by 3 dollars. Age of beer may be in question but it was a good price. Great selection for SC. Many selections I havent seen in NC either so I will definitely be back on my next trip to Greenville in another month. Bought a Welsh beer as well. Dubbed the national beer of Welch.

Greens is located on Congaree just beside the mall, but Congaree deadends currently before you get to the road that connects to 385, so it is a bit of a PITA to access if you aren't coming in from the West.
The store offers a small but nice selection of both craft brews and some of the more interesting beers that fall within the 5% ABW limit currently imposed upon the good folks in the State of South Carolina.
There are two long shelves of warm sixers and then a small cold case of 1/2 BMC and the rest craft offering. Not the best selection ever, but perhaps the best in Greenville, SC. I'd drop back into Green's although the pricing is not the best and the selection could be improved upon.

Ahhh, Green's. Whenever we visit South Carolina, which is probably three times per year, or so, this place is a must stop. Not only is their beer selection volumnous, but they also have a niche in that they sell single bottles of some of the more rare items, including imports. But make no mistake about it, they have their fair share of local micros as well. The staff is relatively attentive if not overly knowledgable, and the quality of the product is rarely if ever a question. Connected to Green's Beer is a loquor store which also carries a solid delection of wines and spirits. When in Downtown Greenville, this is without question THE place to stop for all of your beer itchings.
