A large, open air brewery with a large patio. Multiple TV’s offer sports or movies, with both playing at the same time. The food is really good; I had the Holy City burger: fried green tomato, pimento cheese and bacon with two beef paties. They offer 25 beers on tap and a cask or two, some of the beers being a bit gimicky, so I give them props for bucking the norm. The quality is average.
Holy City is in the back of a small industrial park. The first time I actually drove past it so have your eyes open when visiting this place. They had over 20 beer of tap with all major styles represented and a few lesser known ones as well. I managed to have four beers and was pleasantly surprised by their taste and quality. The place itself is rather large and a great place to hang out with friends. The patio outside is huge and has umbrellas for those hot summer afternoons. Definitely kid friendly and they allow dogs on the patio too. I highly recommend Holy City if you are in North Charleston looking to drink beer.
Holy City is in a large long shed or garage and has a proper bar with a pool table as well as housing the brewery. They have about 20 taps, so plenty of choice of good beers.

It felt like walking into a neighborhood barbecue or block party. The converted warehouse spills out into the adjacent parking lot with an abundance of picnic tables, a game of bags to the side, a billiards table, basketball hoop, and an acoustic act coming through the loudspeakers. Definitely a chill party vibe going on. The staff was attentive and friendly and seemed to genuinely enjoy the beer they were serving. The amount of different Holy City beers available was impressive and nearly overwhelming. There were 20+ taps to choose from. They did you-pick-em flights of four as well as standard pints, all reasonably priced. They had a couple food options available - namely barbecue sandwiches - which smelled good, but I did not partake during this visit. Very cool setup and worth the visit.
Holy City is tucked away in an industrial park, but they’ve made excellent use of their space. Out front was a food truck, picnic tables and cornhole set up. Inside is a spacious and utilitarian tasting room. We sat at the long wooden bar. An impressive number of beers were available. I am pretty certain it was more than eight. The beers I tried were all solid. It’s great to see a place like this open in the area because Charleston metro now has some real, all-we-do-is-brew-craft-beer places.
Stopped by on the way to downtown Charleston. Great atmosphere, decent crowd and plenty of taps. Well worth the stop and we were able to sample nine of their beers. If in the area, make sure you pay them a visit.
The brewery tap feels like an over-sized garage. The place was absolutely heaving with southern beer geeks and locals. There were 20 taps of house beer on across a range of styles. Plenty of collabs and (alleged) one-offs featured, and I regret that I didn’t have anyone to help me take on the list. The quality of beer was a bit variable. Some stuff was great, some merely OK. Prices were good, especially for growler pours. Service was decent despite the crush at the bar. Overall, strongly recommended.

Open air, warehouse with a cool, chill group of patrons and staff. Their core beers are readily available around town, but to really experience what Holy City is all about you got to go there. Almost every time I’m there they have something new and unique; a cask, derivation of one of the staples, or a new beer that is only released at brewery. Keeps me coming back. The cost/quality ratio is exceptionally good as well.
