Part of my bar-hopping adventure in Charleston, given that it was across the street from Sam’s and on the same block as Pies and Pints. Hipster atmosphere, lots of nooks and crannies and eclectic stuff decorating the walls and floors. Very open design made it less oppressive than most hipster joints. No craft beer to speak of, you’d come here to drink whatever social media is telling the hipsters to drink.

30 AMBIANCE 3/5 SERVICE 5/10 SELECTION 3/15 FOOD N/A VALUE 3/10 OVERALL 4/20
Visited on a Thursday evening. To call this place a beer bar is an absolute misnomer. It is a bar, and does serve beer, but certainly not a wide or varied selection of craft beer. The one on tap, Rogue Dead Guy, was overpriced at $6 for a pint, and was severely affected by beer lines that gave the drinker a sense that they’d never been cleaned. Bartenders lack even basic beer knowledge, have little patience for questions, and seem abrasive in general. The crowd is the general frat boy/young professional mix that one would expect from a faux-trendy bar. Overall, laughable.

Downtown on street parking. Prices for draft beer are a little high. Selection is slightly better than average for the average bar in the area. Some of the staff are snobby and never met a staff member knowledgeable about beer. They have done a renovation newer tile and small lcd tvs (are big screen lcd that expensive?). This place is usually fairly busy.

Crowded most of the time, especially weekend evenings. Tries to appeal to the business/semi-upscale bar crowd, but kind of fails. Selection is mostly macros. Has a few imports, but basically the stuff you’d expect. Has the West Virginia Appalachian Pale Ale on tap, which is a pretty solid brew. Overall, too dark, too crowded. No live music. Too snobby. Not nearly a good selection. I wouldn’t go back unless I was forced.
On a side note, however, is an attached Japanese restaurant, Ichiban. Best sushi in Charleston.
