A Guide to Charleston Breweries (Part 5)

Summertime for us in Charleston is all about sitting outside, drinking a delicious beer, and enjoying the warm weather.  Recently, we've had even more new places to do that with a couple of new favorite spots, including a brand new brewery.  Whether you like IPAs or sours, dark beer or lagers, this installment of my Charleston brewery round up definitely has something for everyone!  If you're looking to see what breweries I've already visited in the Charleston area, you can find a full list at the bottom of this post!

The Hold by Revelry (Romney Street, Charleston): Revelry was one of the first breweries I visited in Charleston, and over the last couple of years, they've added a rooftop, and now opened up part of their barrel-aging facility as a sour and wild ale taproom!  They have a different selection than the original Revelry (only a block away).  While the indoor space is small, I love the long outdoor garden, benches, and picnic tables alongside the facility.
What to try: Achtung (pomegranate and blackberry Berliner Weisse) or Ouroboros (sour ale)
Oak Road Brewery (Summerville): Oak Road is definitely in a spot in the Greater Charleston area that's lacking breweries.  There aren't too many in Summerville, and my friends who live up in Summerville LOVE this place.  They focus a lot of Belgian beers, but have an overall good selection.  Most of the people there were definitely "regulars" and happy to share with us their favorites.  Head out to Oak Road to watch soccer, play games, and enjoy some delicious beer!
What to try: Bipolar Belgian Dubbel or Ausfahrt German Pilsner
Edmund's Oast Brewing Co. (King Street Extension, Charleston): There is definitely an Edmund's Oast empire now in Charleston's neck.  I shared last year here about Edmund's Oast, which has had some of my favorite beer and happy hour specials since we moved here, but last year, they opened two more arms of their operation: EO Exchange (which has my favorite selection of craft beer from all over the country) and EO Brewing, in the same courtyard as Workshop.  They have all of their fan favorite beers there as well as can, bottle, and keg operations.  They have pop-up kitchens throughout the week as well as a pizza shop in-house.
What to try: Sour Passionfruit or Bound By Time (citrus IPA)
Two Blokes Brewing (Long Point Road, Mount Pleasant): This is the newest addition to the Mount Pleasant commerce brewery area (the other two nearby are Westbrook and Ghost Monkey), and it makes for the perfect night of East Cooper brewery hopping.  They offer flights, which we love, and they have a wide range of beer styles.
What to try: First Blood Hefeweizen or Spilt Milk Nitro Milk Stout
Charleston brewery adventures:
  • Part 1: Holy City Brewing, Palmetto Brewing, Revelry Brewing, Coast Brewing, and Westbrook Brewing
  • Part 2: Ghost Monkey Brewery, Cooper River Brewing, Frothy Beard Brewing, Edmund's Oast (restaurant and brewpub), and Fatty's Beer Works
  • Part 3: Charles Towne Fermentory, Freehouse Brewery, Tradesman Brewing, Twisted Cyress Brewing, Rusty Bull Brewing
  • Part 4: Snafu Brewing, Pawley's Island Brewery, Lo-Fi Brewing, Munkle Brewing, Commonhouse Aleworks
Hard to believe that there are still three more breweries in Charleston that I need to document.  Plus, there are 3 more opening around the area within the next year.  This will bring our city's grand total up to 30 breweries and tap rooms - we are coming for ya, Asheville!
