A big, slick brewpub right in the middle of the Charleston historic district. This is a very large reastaurant with two floors of seating and a glass enclosed brewhouse right in the middle of the dining area.
The food and beer are both pretty mediocre. The menu has a smokehouse theme, but it is kind of phoned in and certainly doesn't compare to the real, down home BBQ joints that can be found in this part of the country. The beer is standard, 90s brewpub stuff and on the weak side of average at that. The best of the lot was the pale ale, which had a nice hop character, but it didn't make up for the lackluster Black IPA or the flat out awful Red Ale.
Overall, it's an out of date, touristy pub that really isn't worth a visit considering the proliferation of genuinely good restaurants and beer bars in this town.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.
