Charleston Beer and Brewery Guide

Pawleys Island Brewing: Why the name "Pawleys Island"?

Growing up, Pawleys Island was a constant source of joy in the Blake brothers' lives and they wanted to bring that same happiness to others. While brewing a batch of home-brew at the north end of Pawleys on the front porch of the house their grandfather built, the idea of Pawleys Island Brewing was born.

We believe in using real ingredients- no extracts or flavorings and we never filter or use finings. We focus on beer that is true-to-style and unique from beer to beer.  

As much as we love beer, we love people more. We think that the joy of Pawleys is experienced with laid-back, kind people.
