Like Frugal MacDoogal, Southern Spirits is a beverage warehouse containing not only beer, but also a large selection of wine and liquor. As such, their craft beer selection — which can be found by navigating cases upon cases of Bud, Miller and Coors products — isn’t always as interesting as that of the smaller beer stores in the area. Most of the flagship craft beers and big names are here, and often times more limited beers will stick around here long after they’ve sold out at other Charlotte beer stores.
Because they buy in such bulk, Southern Spirits’ prices are often some of the best in the area. Yes, they’re technically in Fort Mill, SC, but that’s really a short drive from Ballantyne. Because they’re in South Carolina, they’re also able to fill growlers. Southern Spirits and Frugal MacDoogal both installed growler stations recently.
