Now, there’s nothing wrong with buying a twelve-pack when you’re looking to kick back and relax with some friends, but did you know that the best kind of beverage is craft beer? Especially if it’s a Charleston craft beer. It’s lovingly made and it bursts with flavor. Fortunately, if you live in Charleston, SC, you know that you have plenty of options throughout the Lowcountry. One visit to any of these fantastic Charleston breweries, and you and your friends can enjoy all the craft beer that you can handle (responsibly, of course)!


Palmetto Brewery Co.

When their website advertises, “Our beer doesn’t care if you wear skinny jeans or even pants”, you know that these are crafters who can kick back and laugh as well as they can make quality beer. Though the brewery (located in historic downtown Charleston) opened in 1993, it traces its roots all the way back to the 19th century, making it officially the “oldest brewery in South Carolina.”


Revelry Brewing Co.

Located on a rooftop in industrial Charleston with views of the Cooper River, you will find Revelry Brewing Co. This casual (yet comfortable) brewery is a fun time day or night and brings in all ages (over 21) for some of Charleston's very best locally-brewed beer. Some of their best options are the Gullah Cream Ale, Funkmaster Brett & the Furious Hops, and the Oh My Darlin’ Scotch Ale. Locals love the ample outdoor space which comes equipped with heat lamps in the winter months, and shady covered areas in the summer months.


Frothy Beard Brewing Company

Beer, beards, and good times are just a few of the things promised by the impressively facial-haired men who run this back-slapping brewery. Begun by two friends with a passion for beer, this laid-back and welcoming brewery, located in Avondale in West Ashley, offers great beverages and a multitude of events over the year. Highlights include live music, release parties, and even watch parties for popular television shows.


Holy City Brewing

Established in 2011 and located in North Charleston, Holy City Brewing is a craft brewery that creates handcrafted ales and lagers with a 15-barrel (bbl) system. Featuring a full taproom, kitchen, and state-of-the-art brewing operation, Holy City has become a staple in the South Carolina craft brewing industry. Their beer selection changes seasonally, so you’ll never know what fun beer adventure you may get when you go. It’s also a place where people can come relax, hang out, listen to live music, or even do Yoga on weekend mornings. There’s something here for everyone and Holy City always delivers a good time!


Commonhouse Aleworks

“Celebrating what we all share in common…” and that’s a good and relaxing time! Commonhouse Aleworks took no time at all to build its name within the North Charleston Park Circle District. With outdoor picnic table seating, live bands, and gorgeous lighting aesthetics, this is the perfect happy hour spot to catch up with your friends after work or to grab a laid-back dinner with your family. Enjoy one of their delicious IPAs, lagers, or stouts while grubbing down on their infamous soft pretzel or tot-chos!
