First place we went when we flew into Charleston. Great little place with a wonderful vibe. Mid-day crowd. Good service. Server was very knowledgeable and helpful. Food was excellent, even if it was on the pricy side. Great selection of local/regional brews. Well worth a visit.

A modern, stylish bar with 30 taps, all of which were interesting and there were lots of beers made locally or in neighbouring states. Well worth a visit. (Visited 16 February 2014).

42 taps, hipster joint with the best selection youíll find in Charleston. Food is limited. Go here for the excellent selection of beer.

A funky dive bar feel, but done in a newer, kitchy kind of way. Felt a little inauthentic I thought. But thatís just the decor. The vibe was bustling yet laid back. Service left a little to a lot to be desired. Beer selection was great with a fair amount of local stuff.

A cozy bar in downtown Charleston. A smallish bar, lots of tables close together, couches by a faux fireplace and seats at the front of the bar with open windows that overlook the street. Cozy chairs too (no hard bar stools!) Lots of interesting decor along the walls (old ads, posters, stuffed wildlife, steins, etc). Very solid tap list- 42 taps plus 1 cask. All styles are well represented. They have a small but decent selection of locals (Riverdog, Coast, Westbrook, Holy City) and some regionals like Against the Grain, Highland, Lonerider. And some interesting offerings from Birrificio, Local Option, Evil Twin, and others. I didnít order any food (the menu is mostly sandwiches). Definitely a good stop in Charleston, great beer list, though I think Craftsmen is slightly better.

Stopped in while on vacation because a friend had highly recommended it. Was not disappointed! Coolest. Place. Evar! It has a style all its own. Service was decent but not super attentive. The beer menu had lots of local and national gems. Food was great! I had the Pork Slap sandwich and really enjoyed it. Prices were in line with other pubs. Overall: I wish it was in my hometown!

A very impressive gastropub that has a great tap list. King Street seems to be a real hub of activity in Charleston, so it was unsurprising to find this place pretty busy during lunch service. I scored a spot at the bar and found the service to be quite attentive. The 40ish taps were very well curated. A broad range of styles were available - beer geeks and casual punters alike had plenty to choose from. The focus was mainly on local beers (Quest, Westbrook, Holy City), something I appreciate. The food was absolutely fantastic southern pub fare. My fried chicken sandwich was a superlative example of how good simple food can be when itís done right. Prices were reasonable too. Overall, a must-stop location. Iíd be a regular here if I lived in Charleston.

Really nice place in the heart of Charleston. Fairly large place thatís dimly lit. Real extensive tap list that runs the gamut in terms of styles. Plenty of local beer on, which is nice. Prices are all over the place, ranging from $2.25 to $11 for 10 ounce pours. Most beers are offered in 10 ounce, 16 ounce, and 1 liter pours. Bigger beers arenít served in liters generally speaking. Bartender was very attentive and friendly, and from Jersey to boot! Real solid place Iíd have no problem coming back to.

Very cool interior. Selection is stellar for where we were. Service very friendly. The food menu was a bit of a turn off, so we only had a couple of beers and moved on for food. Proper glassware for all beers also.
