Renovated 3 story warehouse in the Downtown Historic District of Charleston. Beautiful visible beams of an original structure. Brick and woodwork. Large windows that open out to the street on nice days. Copper tanks visible from the sidewalk. The offer a sampler of 8 5oz. beers. The keep 8 beers on tap at a time. The staff were helpful, comparing each style they offered to its mass market style. A random waitress saw me taking rating notes and asked about my favorite one so far. They all seemed very knowledgeable of good beer, real ale. Thatís great for a city that restricts to 6% ABV. Kid friendly as well.

Very good place. The building is awesome - 3 floors, with an elevator. Have about 6 of their own brews - had 2 of them, not bad. Food was good - had the fried chicken, a lot of food, but good.

I left the Southend Brewery with very positive feelings, afterall I had some excellent beers, the brewery exudes a relaxed ambiance which I loved and the service was perfect - I canít remember the girlís name but she was everything a waitress should be, and she was on the nail in recommending the Bombay Pale Ale. This is certainly a pub I will be visiting again when I get to Charleston again

Our family ate here twice during our recent stay in Charleston. Very cool looking place with wide open space above, what appear to be custom lighting fixtures, and a lively atmosphere. Beer selection was ok, although they were out of two of their mainstay beers, which shouldnít happen. The food was very good. I had the shrimp and grits, which was very good. Just an fyi parking can be a little problematic, but we were eventually able to find a spot on a side street about a block away. Definitely worth the visit.

Small chain of brewpubs with locations in Charlotte, Raleigh, and Charelston. The Charleston brewery is located in historic downtown in a cool neighborhood. The building was a navy supply warehouse back in the day. Very tall inside. So tall they have an elevator. Nice ambience with lots of wood. The brew kettles are prominently displayed in the middle of the restaurant. 6 house draught beers the night I visited. Food is very good for a brewpub, and the staff were friendly. Live music on weekends. I like this one better than the Raleigh and Charlotte locations, but all are fairly similar.

This place was visited after lunch at Milnerís in Mt Pleasant. The beer was ordinary. It is difficult to find the right match for evaluation. The dessert that we shared was excellent. It was a bread pudding. One of the beers tasted vinegary. It has three stories. the carpets look worn and old. It is very accessable to downton activities.

Went here while taking a day trip down to Charleston. Walked in and was immediately blown away by the display of their brewing vessels in the middle of the restaurant encased in glass. The appearance and design of the restaurant was very nice indoors. We were seated quickly and the waiting staff were very polite and fast to respond to empty drinks. I sat down to the sampler myself, but was disappointed to find that their Scarlet Ale was currently out. I was however given a refill of one 5 oz glass with any of the other beers of my choice. Overall I enjoyed hanging out at this restaurant, but was quite unimpressed by their beer overall. My favorite of the 7 I tried was probably their Pale Ale. This place is worth visiting at least once if you are down that way, but I donít know if I would go back myself. However, it is really close to the Charleston Beer Exchange (2-3 blocks).

Stopped here for some dinner. Huge place that occupies 3 floors. Great service, decent food. 8 of their own beers on draught when I was there that were decent.
