Spending the weekend in Downtown Charleston? Take time to visit The Battery at White Points Garden, The Market, The Exchange and Provost House, and Fort Sumter.
Then start your tour of downtown’s finest craft beers! Everything from blondes to pale ales, stouts to porters, and ESBs to hefeweizens. It’s all here and waiting for you. We’ve included a couple of stops for food, and a circular route to bring you back home to enjoy the rest of your visit.
Your first stop will be at Craftsmen Kitchen and Taphouse. Located on Cumberland Street just off of East Bay Street, it has 48 taps and is proud to offer local brews on their first page of listings. A full menu from the kitchen guarantees you will be fueled up for most of your journey.
From East Bay Street, head on over to Meeting Street. Start your way north and just before going under the interstate, look for Huger street on your left. There you will find Charlestons oldest brewery, Palmetto Brewing Company. Offering live music on weekends, it’s a great place to hang out for a few and enjoy classics like Huger Street IPA and Expresso Porter.
Back on Meeting Street for a quick jog north, again under the interstate, look for Conroy Street on the right. Revelry Brewing is just a block away and while they have great beers, the experience is even better on the rooftop bar. Cold brews and a view of downtown Charleston can’t be beat.
Continue your journey north on Meeting Street and soon you will see Fatty’s Beerworks on the right. Home of great beers like First Shot American IPA and Photon Blonde Ale, it’s a great place to sit and watch the world go by. Talk nice to David, the owner, and he will break out the band for your entertainment!
A couple of blocks up Meeting Street once again, you will find LoFi Brewing. Tucked away in a warehouse, this laid back place offers 5 beers but is totally worth the visit. The Mexican Lager and Glitter Pony Belgium Triple make the travel worthwhile.
It’s time to take the next street over, which is King Street. Head south and right as it crosses under the interstate, keep your eyes open for Heriot street. Turn right and follow around to Mechanic Street. There you will find Cooper River Brewing. With a large selection of brews like Orange Infused Blonde Ale and ESB you may not want to leave, but there is one last stop to make on your way home.
Your journey ends by traveling down Rutledge Avenue and turning left onto Cypress Avenue. Head east and this will end on Morrison Avenue. As soon as you turn right, you are at Edmunds Oast , a perfect place to wind down the evening. With a beautiful wall of beers and a large menu to fill that now empty stomach, the fantastic outdoor space, complete with communal dining tables, it allows you to unwind and revel in your days adventures.
