Brewery of the Month

Charleston Beer and Brewery Guide

Commonhouse Aleworks: We celebrate the storied history of beer as a central component of American communities as well as the foundation for all civilization. Our business isn't just beer, however. It's people. It's the relationships. It's being a part of something greater than one's self. It's about helping your fellow man and community by giving something back. It's a powerful tool to leave a lasting positive impact on the world.

{Beer Release}The Pumpkin Pancake Porter is now on tap! Get a taste of your favorite fall flavors all in one beer. Adding maple syrup to this beer really mellows out the cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and clove of the pumpkin pie spice blend. Additionally the high amount of pumpkin puree smooths the mouthfeel of the beer to really thicken up this dark porter. Notice our new glass? Get yours today for only $5. @doughboyzpizzasc is here today until 8pm! #itslowtidesomewhere #drinkfreshdrinklocal #pumpkinbeer #pumpkinpancakeporter #tasteoffall #chsaletrail #chscraftbeer
