South Carolina is something of a beer desert, and so the state's main Spring Break destination will understandably have limited options. Sun-stroked undergrads don't care if the beer they're drinking is good. Er... actually, they're probably not even drinking beer. They're most likely at that weird Jimmy Buffet's Margaritaville place where every 45 minutes the big screen TV plays a fake weather warning about an incoming hurricane and then shitty tequila begins to drip from the ceiling.

So, yeah: Mellow Mushroom. A hallucinogen-themed pizza chain that's popular in the least tolerant parts of the country. The aesthetic ethos is great, but it clashes uncomfortably with the political realities unfolding all around you. I went to a Mellow Mushroom in Savannah, Georgia and sat next to three pencil-necked douches who talked for an hour about how PTSD was fake and only pussies claim to have it. And as awful as that conversation was, it was made all the worse by the fact that we were surrounding by plaster sculptures of stoned-looked mushroom people.

So, yeah: not the nicest vibe, but that's more a fault of the locals, not the establishment. Southerners can't help being awful. That's just how god made them.

The selection wasn't great by first world standards. But keep in mind, this is a state where it's still pretty much legal to beat a gay guy to death if he looks as you lust-wise, so it's not exactly the first world. That having been said, Mellow Mushroom tries as hard as they reasonably can. There's Sweetwater, Magic Hat, Pyramid Apricot--that sort of stuff. And also some Chimay.

Actually, the beer selection was remarkably similar to that of Iowa circa 2005. Very limited, nothing beyond the big national craft brewers. But they try.

If you're like me, and beer factors heavily into your travel plans, then you wouldn't be in Myrtle Beach. But if you're like me in a different sense, and you had to go the Myrtle for business reasons, then it's probably your best bet.
