Everytime I go to Charleston, I visit this place. Personallly I am partial to my hometown brewery, but I do like this placeís beer. I have friends who live in Charleston and I introduced them to this brewery. The porter is definately the best.

Visited April 17 2006 in the afternoon. The huge, warehouse-like room was very quiet and sparsely populated, which made the smoking of many of the patrons easy to avoid. Did not try the food, though other patronsí plates looked good, and I just did the sampler round and left so donít have much to say about the service other than, efficient enough. The beer...overall not very good, though mostly clean and without a lot of flaws. Most were just fairly bland and thin, and most seemed unbalanced, too dry or too thin. Oatmeal stout was the best, but as it is I wouldnít come back here for the beer without a lot of improvement.

They had 8 house brews to choose from. They were packed on a Friday night. Service wasnít a problem but the bartenders were strapped to just serve everyone. They did talk when the had the chance and knew some about the brews. They also had live music that started at 9pm. Decent place with real good beer.

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.

Nice location in historic downtown. The building is very open inside and has a nice, though typical, "bar ambiance". The tables are all covered in large sheets of white paper and crayons are provided. This provides for much drunken entertainment. The beer was up to par, but nothing extraordinary. Definitely worth a stop, if in the area.

Overall, Southendís beers are sweet and watery. The brewpub is located within a historic building on a charming stretch of Bay St, just a stoneís throw from the Atlantic. Wood paneling and high ceilings. Oddly, Southend allows SMOKING inside!!! There were no less than 8 beers on tap, to my delight, and some were pretty good. Southend has a terrific location on E. Bay St. near most of the fine restaurants, and Charleston is simply a beguiling vacation destination thatíll put a smile on your face.

This brewpub is in an old Historic building one block from the Atlantic Ocean in Charleston, very picturesque. Huge celings between the floors. The brewery is the center of the restaurant with tables all around the glass enclosure. An antique elevator assists the brewer in his chores. The food is excellent and the price is very reasonable. You can sample the eight current brews, served well chilled.
