The beer selection here did not disappoint. So much so that we had to go twice already in our week long vacation. We really enjoy IPA's and there were some excellent choices from Rouge, Bear Republic, Stone, and Bells (from Michigan).Also, Dales Pale Ale and Rouges Northwestern. Too many selections to list, but those are the ones we had on tap. We rarely get a chance to have these beers on tap at home, so we were in heaven. Loved the Bells Two Hearted, not available at home, wish it was.

On the way there, I said I had no interest in having pizza, but once there we ordered a caesar salad pizza, and it was above delicious. $12 for a ten inch pizza, but I would order it again tomorrow.

On the service end, I would call it lukewarm at best. When we asked about some of the selections we got a "its good" and "hoppy". Mind you the service was not bad, just not overly friendly and, who cares anyway, we came for the good beer, and thats what we got.

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.
