vibe: 4.5 | quality: 3.5 | service: 3 | selection: 3.5 | $$

I visited this place with my family while on vacation. We had reservations at 82 Queen, and decided to have a few drinks here before diner. The location can not be beat. A large brick building with three floors and the brewing equipment displayed around the center. It is an old historic looking building in the heart of the Charleston French Quarter with lots of charm. There is a long wood bar, and tables everywhere.

The service was kind of slow, our beer was brought out one at a time. Even though all the beers had been poored at the same time. I found it odd that instead of grabbing two at a time, the bartender kept waking back and forth with one beer in hand. The bartender did not seem to know much about the beer. Just that the beer was brewed on premise, and he repeated that several times. Nothing really bad to complain about, just average and slightly annoying.

I tried several beers, and it was hit and miss. I had the Stout, Brown, and Scarlet. The stout was very good, the Scarlet was decent, the Brown had way to much diacetyl. Overall, not the best but very enjoyable for the most part.

After reading some reviews on this sight I was kind of nervous to try this place. Though my family and I had a very enjoyable time with decent to above average beer. This is a place I will visit again next time I am in town.

Easy access from the tourist district in Charleston. Good selection of beers. Didn't try the food but the menu looked intriguing and the restaurant space is very large. Great first stop for a beer and dinner before the serious pub hopping commences.
