Regularly ranked as one of the best beer stores in the world, The Charleston Beer Exchange has announced plans to rename itself along with relocating to the area next the Edmund’s Oast brewpub.
In a release, Edmund’s Oast & CBX owner Scott Shor said the shop will be moving from its current home on Exchange Street to a 2,000-square-foot, two-story facility in the Half Mile North area of Charleston in early 2017. Around 1,000 different beers (including Edmund’s Oast’s in-house beers) and 500 different wines will be sold at the new location, which will also host beer and wine classes and other events.
Along with the move comes a new name: Edmund’s Oast Exchange, which will help unify the branding of the brewpub and the separate production brewery in the works.
“It is pretty wonderful to be able to bring our popular beer store closer in proximity to Edmund’s Oast Brewpub and our anticipated offsite brewery, Edmund’s Oast Brewing Company,” said Shor. “We have longed to have a larger space for the retail component, to be able to offer additional parking and have a large footprint for better displays, events and additional products such as wines.”
CBX will operate as usual up until the move.
