#Repost @chsbeerfest with @get_repost ・・・ Same game, new name! We are now Charleston Beer Fest! . Craft breweries from around the Carolinas will gather in May to toast the newly renamed Charleston Beer Fest at its new venue: Riverfront Park in North Charleston. Previously the Charleston Beer Garden, the springtime beer festival is changing its name to better reflect the event’s overall style, growth and continued focus on celebrating regional craft beer. . The Charleston Beer Fest will be noon to 7 p.m. on Saturday, May 18, 2019, at Riverfront Park. Tickets will go on sale Feb. 1, 2019, at ​www.CharlestonBeerFest.org​ (link in bio) with early-bird pricing for both general admission and the popular VIP tickets. . Proceeds from Charleston Beer Fest benefit @palmettocare in its work providing complete compassionate HIV care and prevention education awareness across the tri-county area. . #chsbeerfest #chsbeer #charleston #beer #riverfrontpark #scbeer #sc #cheers #beers #craftbeer

Today in Belgian drinking: the Delerium Tremens taproom, covered with historic metal beer signs and playing great (American) music. Had the Nocturnum and the Guillotine. The latter of which is an appropriately named 8.5% blonde that will take you down if you’re not careful.

Tried the 12 and the 8 today. There’s a reason it comes up in the world top 10. The 8 had a little more body. The 12 was just smooth paradise. Perfection!

Today’s winner. Westmalle Tripel. One of the 8 Trappist breweries in Belgium. One of the best of the style I’ve tasted.

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!

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
