The Beer Festivals

The Beer Festivals
If you’re going to drink local, you may as well do it with thousands of friends and strangers at events centered around the art of the beer. And these upcoming events in Charleston are focused on presenting amazing beers in some pretty incredible places. Want to drink Palmetto and Commonhouse with your pup at The Joe? Who doesn’t! Want to spend an entire week submerging yourself in the Charleston beer scene? Of course you do! Take a look at some of the beer-centric events coming up in the Lowcountry that make it easy to Drink Local!

Buy a beer, help a pup! Or ... just adopt one of the pups that will be hanging out on April 11. Either way it's a win. If you need me, I'll be hanging out with my dogs as they encourage me to drink in support of other dogs!

The Ale Trail is getting behind the Lowcountry Local First Eat Local Challenge! As a guest blogger we decided to go ahead and start our own blog. Our first entry: how to move your drinking money to local breweries! #eatlocalchs #drinklocalchs #chsaletrail

Want to find a better way to #drinklocalchs ?? Grab a Crowler from a local brewery to drink with dinner at home. Like the Wicked Throat Chamah NE IPA from @twoblokesbrewing #drinklocal #chsaletrail #eatlocalchs #mtpleasant #lowcountrylocalfirst

Drink Local Charleston!

Drink Local Charleston!
Welcome to the Charleston Drink Local Challenge! I know, I know … technically it’s the Eat Local Challenge. But this is Charleston, people, and we do a fair share of drinking when we go out. It’s something we’re known for, revered for even. We have an incredibly lively restaurant and brewery scene — to date Charleston supports 27 breweries, 11 distilleries, and 108,217 restaurants. For the month of April we’re focusing on moving our dollars to these locally owned purveyors of deliciousness, and if we pay attention to what we’re drinking when we dine out in Charleston — by moving our drinking dollars as well as our food dollars to locally owned and operated businesses — we’re going to increase the impact of this challenge exponentially!

The Peculiar Paradise golden saison @revelrybrewing is a killer spicy rendition of the style. Little bit earthy, little bit funky, a little bit perfect. #chsaletrail #revelry #chsdrinks #chsbeer #drinklocalchs #scbeer #saison #drinklocalbeer

This bourbon barrel aged Belgian brown from Munkle Brewing is one of the best beers I’ve had in Charleston in a while! The bourbon flavor comes through perfectly - not overpowering but not too subtle. Pair that with a just-in soft shell crab @purlieucharleston (fantastic!), add chocolate cake, and call it a night! #westsidechs #chsbeer #eatchs #chsaletrail

Finally Friday! Grab a chair in the open air @fattysbeerworks Trying the Elrod ESB. Nice bitter bite. Next up: the Musket Mule saison! #chsaletrail #drinklocalchs #chsbeer #explorecharleston #charleston
