Found this place on BA since I wanted to try some Cigar City session beers. I have only really had the opportunity to try their "big" beers (750ml) at tastings and at festivals.
Hard to find because it is tucked way in the back of a shopping center. Once I got there the clerk was super helpful. He found the Cigar City brews as well as several others I couldn't find in SC. Beer is really only about 10% of the total area but they do have a beer cave that isn't all Bud and Miller. Just quality beers.
Dropped a good bit but got what I wanted and more. Definitely worth the trip.

A little hard to find, the main branch of Broudy's is hidden away at the end of a large strip mall. I've been to this store quite a few times over the past year when working in St. Augustine. They had some old coors/millers tap a draft bottles that I wanted for my homebrew when nobody else in the area did.
A: It's a big liquor store with lots of promotions and specials. They often have special tastings and events in the store and have a schedule posted out front and on their website.
Q: Quality is slightly above average. Always check the dates on your items of interest. For example, when shopping for a German sweet wine as a gift for Christmas this year, not one single one was younger than 2009. This is a problem for low alcohol white wines, that are best consumed young.
S: Their service is stellar. The store is full of helpful employees that are ready to assist you at any moment. They go out of their way to help you track inventory down, even searching their network to find it at another Broudy's location.
S: Selection is above average for a bottle shop. Their craft beers are fresh and they offer a nice variety of local, regional and import beers from all around the world.
F: They don't really have much of a selection of food. They have some mixers and condiments for hard liquor, sodas and sports drinks for re-hydrating, that's about it.
V: Their prices are in-line on the liquor and slightly above on the craft beer. They are just about the only game in town as a bottle shop, so they're getting away with a little extra markup. They had four packs of Gulden Draak with a snifter priced at $40.00, $10.00 a pop. Wait for their specials, unless it's something you really want.

Atmosphere- Rather large when you first walk in, Cooperate offices are upstairs. Store is well spread out and very clean.
Quality- Very good quality. Not much more to say.
Service- Impressive, the second you walk through the door you are greeted and asked for help. Staff is extremely knowledgeable and willing to help you with what ever it is you need to know.
Selection- Fantastic selection on everything, especially all the Microbreweries. By far has the best selection in the entire town. Has well over 75 different breweries!
Value- Impressive as well. When I went in there they had some amazing deals. Beer is always free will never find anything out of date. I was very happy with my overall shopping experience at Broudys!!
