This is a unique store. It is split down the middle, one side liquor and one side beer/wine. You have to decide which route to take at the entrance. Once you are in, you have to exit to visit the other side. Pretty weird actually. If you are there for beer, heed old lady Fratelli's advice and "Stay to the right!"
I view this place as a hidden gem. From the outside (and most of the inside) this place looks like a BMC douchery. However, the craft section seemed to be untouched and was full of beers that typically sell out very quickly where I am from. I guess local beer nerds go elsewhere for the goods. Either way, this place is definitely worth a look if you are in the area.
They have a pretty nice growler station with a really impressive list. I just got a fill of Bell's Sweet Potato Stout. The fact they get non-bottled offerings from Bell's tells me they are doing something right, and I better keep an eye on them in the future.
I must say, I didn't expect any service, but I ended up talking to one of the workers about their taplist and some beer events they had scheduled. All while another employee was filling my growler. Their service was excellent.

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.

Small store, small selection, but they have some real gems.
Fresh Sculpin (new labels), Sculpin growler fills for ~$14. Also had some COAST offerings (one on the growler station too). Green's has a separate cellar for Belgians and a few big stouts.
Overall good selection, I can't seem to recall the other beers that I saw (the Sculpin really threw me off), but I remember considering buying about 5 other beers.
Service is pretty good, there seems to be only 1 or 2 people that truly know their beers, the rest appeared to be general employees.
I will definitely be back to this store, specifically for my Sculpin fix and COAST growlers
The best aspect about Green's is the growler selection

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.

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.

I have a tap at home so this is the only place nearby to get the smaller pony kegs and management has been very helpful in ordering kegs for me. They only keep a few in stock (blue moon, fat tire, yuengling) but can order almost anything obtainable. They have a pretty good selection that is broken up by country. The pricing is good the staff is helpful but I have only found one person working there that is knowledgeable about beer just ask for the beer guy. The store could be better if they removed some wine and added more micro brew.

Stop here whenever I'm in the area. It's a beer and wine place so most of the space is dedicated to wine, but what they carry is pretty solid. The place to check is in there "cellar." It's a little walk in cooler with some of the harder to find items. As far as service goes I've chatted with a couple people and took a good recommendation from one, but generally since it's not a huge area or I'm in the cooler I'm in and out without seeing anyone. Nice place to check out if you're around.

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.

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.

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!
