Charleston, SC
« on: April 29, 2012, 05:39:05 PM »
Will be heading down there for a week of family vacation.

Looking for good recommendations for beer stores, brewpubs, local brews to try, etc.

Also, any good restaurant recommendations would be more than welcome. I know there are many (we've enjoyed Hominy Grill, FIG, Blossom, Peninsula Grill on a previous visit).

We'll actually be staying in Sullivan's Island, if that helps with recommendations.

Thanks!

With restaurants you almost cannot go wrong and they are starting to have a better beer scene although it can be hit or miss.

For a dive bar I like Gene's Hofbrau

One of my favorite restaurants in the inexpensive EVO (N Charleston)
http://evopizza.com/

I really like Red Drum for food as well (Mt. Pleasant)
http://www.reddrumrestaurant.com/

The food is good at Taco Boy as well

The local breweries are Coast

Holy City

Westbrook

If you are looking for beer bars I would suggest the most up to date info would come from the local bottle shop, ask them for a recommendation

Charleston Beer Works has some locals on

I've not been here, but it looks promising

It's not a popularity contest, it's beer!
