This place had ten CBC beers on tap when I visited, available in flights or singly. The food was tasty and creative - I chose a flock of tacos, which means that I learned something about tacos - they travel in flocks whereas beers prefer to gather in flights; who knew? The food was a mixture of southern and Asian-inspired, Thai if I had to guess, since even the bulgogi taco was more Thai than Korean. Service was extremely and genuinely friendly, and it was easy to make friends with the locals sitting at the bar. I (hopefully) talked 63 year old Don into joining Ratebeer today, Iím anxiously awaiting his first beermail. Very relaxed atmosphere, more restaurant-like than bar-like, but both personalities were comfortable with one another. A worthwhile stop in Charleston, especially given the dearth of other beery options.

Iím rating this now, but we will me merging this place with CBC... just trying to figure out how first. Downtown location, parked a block away with no problem. Large and open with tables around and a large-ish bar with a view of the brewery. Bright and open. All CBC brews on tap and the quality is generally above average. Bartender was quite friendly and helpful. Tacos were pretty solid.

Seems similar to the American Flatbread-Zero Gravity setup in that Charleston Brewing is here, but the brewpub itself is actually Black Sheep. They had a nice variety of styles when we went and allowed us to sample whatever. The citra session IPA was a nice surprise. The beers were overall better than what I was expecting to get out of WV. Combined with the kickass fusion burritos, and this a nice find for a relative beer wasteland!

I would come back for the food and the service. Great personable bartender. Beer selection is limited to cbc. Tabfelbier is ok. The raj is descent but not great. Food kicked ass. Prices were reasonable.

This is the place that has replaced the Charleston brewpub. Keep in mind the brewery is still intact and has doubled production capacity. Parking is on the street. Parking is free, I think 6 pm till early in the morning Monday through Saturday and all day Sunday. Black sheep has a new front door right on the corner, but still facing Summers Street. New meets industrial decor, a little change but more than half the same. Two areas, the area just inside the door on the left where the new brewing equipment is on display and the area in the back by the big wooden bar where the original brewing equipment can be seen. Still good prices on the beer. Four formats of beer pint, sampler, growlers, and growlettes. I miss the half pints. Service is usually good. My food arrived quickly on a busy Friday night. The quality of food is usually good. I like their burritos and sweet potato salad. Overall I like the food better than the old Charleston brewpub.
