Really a cool looking building from the outside. Cool, old brick structure and three stories tall. Inside they have a glass elevator which is also neat. The entry way to the restaurant felt a bit like a hotel lobby, though.
It was close to closing time when I wandered in on a Monday, so not much going on. In fact, I was the only patron there. Despite that, the service was pretty lackluster. The lady working the bar seemed more concerned about just hanging out away from the bar. Oh well... She seemed nice enough when she was actually around.
Didn’t eat here. Beers were mostly not good. The seasonals were okay, but probably wouldn’t order them again. Probably wouldn’t come here again either.
Potentially one of the worst brewpubs I’ve ever been to. The beer was terrible, mostly contaminated. The food was brutal - how can you screw up a creme brulee? They did, twice - apparently they mean it to be powdery, and ice cold. The server was nice, even apologized in advance in case she had bad breath (luckily she didn’t). The only cool thing here was that they had this nerd band playing Cars, Devo and other hilarious stuff while wearing a neck brace. Anyway, there seems to be far better places in Charleston to spend your time - it’s just unfortunate that this is one of the best located beer destinations.
First stop in town on the way down to Tampa for RBWG. This is probably not the best place to choose if you want to taste the best beer that Charleston has to offer but it advertised BBQ and I needed to tick some BBQ in every state, so this is what we did for lunch. Beautiful area and parking wasn’t too terrible, but the beer and service were not very good, and the food portions were a bit small for what we paid. The layout of the building was kind of neat though. The brewery is in the middle of the room enclosed by glass or plexiglass. There are tables surrounding it on each of the three floors. We sat at the bar off to the one side of the ground floor.
There were 7 beers on tap during our visit. 5 were year round and 2 were seasonal (IPA and chocolate milk stout). As mentioned before, all pretty meh. The food was pretty good but they brought out half the food first and said the rest was coming. That wouldn’t be bad if they brought the rest out a couple minutes later but it took a good 10-15 minutes. I guess the moral of the story here is don’t eat here if you’re in a hurry. Also, don’t expect amazing beer here.
A very large brewpub in an old grocery store. It’s arranged over three floors and the brew kit rises through the centre like a set of gigantic cathedral organ pipes. They had six of their own beers on offer with samplers available. The beers weren’t particularly exciting but they were perfectly OK and the food was quite good.

We were staying down the street from the brewpub and stopped in for lunch. Nice place, good atmosphere, decent food and several of their beers were on tap. We had a light lunch and one of their samplers, they were decent. Worth a stop if you are in the area.
Large place with a bit more character than your average big brewpub. Sme brewery equipment in the center, but most is behind the bar. Six beers on tap when I visited, available in a taster flight. All were mediocre except the wheat, which was not good. Food was very tasty though. Prices typical for the downtown area.
