Bendy Brewski Yoga

                    “Namaste.”  This simple phrase ending my first yoga class in a brewery.  We were in the taproom of Holy City Brewery and the Bendy Brewski class with Beth Cosi was wrapping up. It was time for a beer and brunch.  “It…


Craftsmen Kitchen and Taphouse

    For a ship to successfully navigate its way around shoal, reefs, and currents, it needs a talented and dedicated captain. The HMS Surprise had Horatio Hornblower, the USS Bonhomme Richard had John Paul Jones, and the Queen Anne’s Revenge had Blackbeard.       The Craftsmen Kitchen and Tap House…


The Gin Joint

  Travel down Market Street until you see the glint of harbor water and you run into Bay Street. Turn right, and while you gaze into the windows of such eateries as Amen Street, Slightly North of Broad, and High Cotton, keep an eye out for a small patio on your left. A large wooden…


Blue Tape Brewing

   “It’s about putting grain in a mash tun and being proud.”  We first met Mark and Lizz at Craft Conundrum in Charleston. Usually when we meet brewers and owners it’s on their home turf, so this was a unique experience. We are now finding out how breweries get started from the ground up.  …


Low Tide Brewing

  The crunch of gravel under my tires, the rustle of the pampas  grass and the creak of the wooden porch swing greeted me as I walked up to the welcoming front entrance of the former boat dealership. The metal structure, complete with covered front porch and peaked roofline, is now the…


Fat Pig Brewery

  It was 98 degrees when I exited my car in the parking lot of the soon to open Fat Pig Brewery. I was greeted by a friendly, bearded man who asked “ Would you like some Chocopotamus?” I was in love with the place already.   Located off of highway 17 on John’s…


Famulari’s Brewpub and Pizzeria

Old school pizzeria, new school brewery.   Just off of Folly Road, there will soon be a place to scratch two of your favorite itches at one place. In what used to be the King Street Grill location, Famulari’s Pizzaria and Brewpub will be opening, serving up hot slices and cold…


Tradesman Brewing Co.

    As I walked into the brewery, a ponderous stack of barrels rolled toward me. Propelled by  Chris, these aging brews were  artfully maneuvered into a space barely big enough to hold them. I was at Tradesman Brewery.   It was suggested that we continue our chat where there…


Revelry Brewing

  I turned off of Meeting street and saw the beacon of red awnings ahead. The rattle of a garage door opening and a welcome smile from Karlie ushered me in. With a cold glass of Wise One, a collaboration brew with Octohops, I knew I was at Revelry Brewing.  ​  Contractors…


Lo Fi Brewing

 On the northern side of Meeting street there is a non-descript warehouse that has a little slice of beer heaven in it. Formely  a Morris Nissan dealership, and a liquor distributor, LoFi Brewing now resides in the back part of this beautiful old    building. With a bar, bathrooms, and…
