Thanks to everyone who came out for our Dogfish Head bomber tasting!  We shared several of their off-the-beaten-path selections and were surprised with the results.  Rosabi, with hints of wasabi flavor and heat, was one of the bigger hits due to its unexpected drinkability.  Noble Rot’s dry wine-like body also created several new fans.

Join us this upcoming Friday, September 26th, from 5-7 PM for a Victory Brewing tap takeover! We’ll have a representative from the brewery here to help educate everyone about some of their great brews! We’ll have a selection of side projects, seasonals, and year round brews for everyone to enjoy. Stop in and see what they’re all about!

This week brought us several bombers from one of the recently opened breweries in Columbia, SC – Conquest Brewing Co!  Artemis Blonde, Medusa Stout, and Sacred Heart IPA are all sure to please due to being approachable enough for the craft novice while still featuring all of the flavor and depth for the pickiest drinker.  Drop in, grab a few bombers to share, and let us know what you think!

We’re excited to be able to help fill your beer needs now and in the future.  If you’ve got any beer suggestions or ideas, or any feedback, we would love to hear it!  Keep an eye out for more emails in the future with updates about events, new beers, new kegs, and more!  If you’d like daily updates and information about kegs as they’re tapped, make sure to like us on Facebook or follow us on Twitter.

Thanks again,

Thanks to everyone who joined us for our fall seasonal tasting! Even though this season is dominated by Oktoberfest and Pumpkin, we wanted to highlight some of the other great brews that are released this time of year.

Join us this upcoming Thursday, September 18th, from 5-7 PM for a free tasting featuring Dogfish Head! We’ve got a large selection of their bombers, ranging from IPAs to Ancient Ales, and thought it would be fun to share their creativity with everyone. Join us any time during the two hour tasting window and learn what makes Dogfish so special!

This week brought us the newest release in Allagash’s Tribute Series with their 2014 Fluxus. $1 of every Fluxus sold goes to a scholarship for pediatric nurses. This year, Fluxus features spruce tips and honey notes. This medium bodied ale is further balanced by a pleasant malt character. Fluxus makes a great treat to warm up with during the fall and winter months.

Thanks to everyone who joined us for our Oktoberfest tasting this past Thursday!  We really enjoyed getting into the season with everyone and finding some new favorites.  Erdinger had a strong showing with their insanely popular Oktoberfest, but the US wasn’t too far behind thanks to Left Hand’s efforts.

Join us this upcoming Thursday, September 11th, from 5-7 PM for a tasting featuring an assortment of fall seasonals.  Several breweries opt to release something other than your typical pumpkin or Oktoberfest and we thought now would be a great time to explore those.  We’ll have everything from a pale ale all the way to a farmhouse ale.

This week brought us several new arrivals from regional favorites Terrapin Beer Company!  If you missed out on last year’s Liquid Bliss Chocolate Peanut Butter Porter then you’re in for a treat because they’ve made it a year round release.  It features a strong peanut butter nose and finishes with a nice, smooth chocolate flavor.  We also received a small number of bottles of their new Imperial Pumpkin Pie Porter for our pumpkin fans!

We’re excited to be able to help fill your beer needs now and in the future.  If you’ve got any beer suggestions or ideas, or any feedback, we would love to hear it!  Keep an eye out for more emails in the future with updates about events, new beers, new kegs, and more!  If you’d like daily updates and information about kegs as they’re tapped, make sure to like us on Facebook or follow us on Twitter.

Thanks to everyone who joined us for our brown ale tasting this past Thursday!  We enjoyed getting to share some great malty favorites of ours, especially with football season starting again.  Dogfish Head‘s Indian Brown Ale turned the most heads thanks to how well it “blends” several different styles together.

Join us this upcoming Thursday, September 4th, from 5-7 PM for a tasting featuring Oktoberfest beers!  September is the perfect time to start digging into this seasonal style, especially with the temperature still being as high as it is.  These highly drinkable lagers make for the perfect option while the seasons are changing.  Join us as we get into the mood for the season while tasting a selection of some of our favorites.

This week marked the return of the fan favorite Weyerbacher Imperial Pumpkin Ale.  Pumpkin fans won’t want to pass up this delicious 8% ABV monster.  Weyerbacheradds a large amount of pumpkin as well as hints of nutmeg, cinnamon, and cardamom.  If you’re looking for the perfect partner for your pumpkin pie or for a night by the campfire then look no further.

We’re open normal hours on Labor Day for your convenience, so drop in for your last minute beer needs.  With tailgating season arriving, we wanted to give everyone a quick reminder that we can order kegs for you!  If you let us know the week before or early on a Monday, we can have kegs on hand for you for the weekend.

We’re excited to be able to help fill your beer needs now and in the future.  If you’ve got any beer suggestions or ideas, or any feedback, we would love to hear it!  Keep an eye out for more emails in the future with updates about events, new beers, new kegs, and more!  If you’d like daily updates and information about kegs as they’re tapped, make sure to like us on Facebook or follow us on Twitter.

Thanks to everyone who joined us for our Sierra Nevada Beer Camp / Mills River tasting!  Their Beer Camp collaborations have been a huge hit and we were happy to have the opportunity to share Tater Ridge and Yonder Bock with everyone.  Chances are high that you won’t see these kegs again, so you’ll want to come fill your growler while you can!

Join us this upcoming Thursday, August 28th, from 5-7 PM for a free Brown Ale tasting!  We’re continuing our “back-to-basics” events with this versatile style.  Brown Ales have varying bitterness and hop profiles, as well as a large variety of coffee, chocolate, or nutty undertones.  Join us as we explore some of the various options that’re available.

This week brought us the return of Thomas Creek‘s fall seasonals!  These local favorites were such a huge hit last year that they ran out long before the season was over.  Thomas Creek was prepared for this year and brewed twice as much, but that doesn’t mean you should wait to give them a taste!  Their Pumpkin ale features natural spices and is reminiscent of an oven-baked pumpkin pie.

We’re excited to be able to help fill your beer needs now and in the future.  If you’ve got any beer suggestions or ideas, or any feedback, we would love to hear it!  Keep an eye out for more emails in the future with updates about events, new beers, new kegs, and more!  If you’d like daily updates and information about kegs as they’re tapped, make sure to like us on Facebook or follow us on Twitter.

Thanks to everyone who came out for our Amber tasting this past Thursday!  We wanted to continue returning to our craft roots with simpler styles.  These classics are still big fan favorites today and what many of us started off drinking.

Join us this upcoming Friday, August 22nd, from 5-7 PM for an event featuring Sierra Nevada!  We’ve managed to get our hands on kegs of two Beer Camp releases – Yonder Bock and Tater Ridge.  Drop in any time from 5-7 PM to get a taste of these two great collaborations along with two Sierra Nevada classics.  We’ll have glassware and other swag on hand to give out with growler fills or 6-pack purchases while supplies last.

If you’re looking for something different for your growler for the weekend, we’ve tapped another keg of Warwick Valley‘s delicious Doc’s Draft Framboise Cider.  This light and refreshing raspberry apple cider is the perfect choice for a weekend companion and is sure to please.

Thanks to everyone who joined us for our IPA day tasting this past Thursday!  We had fun celebrating the IPA while introducing people to a few IPAs they might not have tried before.  Natty Greene’s and Anchor were surprises for many people.

Join us this upcoming Thursday, August 14th, from 5-7 PM for a tasting featuring Reds and Ambers.  This was originally planned for last week, but IPA day caused us to shift our focus at the last minute.  Reds and Ambers make the perfect transition beer for the end of summer and beginning of fall.  We’ll have a selection of regional fan favorites for your tasting pleasure, so be sure to stop by.

This week brought us the very first bottle from Charleston newcomers Freehouse Brewery.  They’ve been brewing delicious all organic beer for a few months including the now bottled Ashley Farmhouse.  This bottle conditioned Farmhouse ale features a yeast-driven tartness with hints of rye spiciness and hops.  Ashley Farmhouse was certified organic by Clemson University.
