Went there after a tour of the city with my wife. Drank at the bar, which is on the 2nd floor (pizza restaurant on the first).

Was hoping to see some big beers since the law changed, but although the selection is large, I found myself not being impressed by much they had. I love big IPA's, and they have none. When I asked the bartender what their best IPA was, she pulled out a bottle of Harpoon. Harpoon is OK, but their best? Yikes. No Imperial Stouts either. They had Weihestephaner listed as on tap, but were out, as well as another German Hefe they were out of. They did have Hogarten, Ayinger Hefe, Hobgoblin, Arrogant Bastard, and many other fine beers, just nothing that a hop head would crave. No Stone, Great Divide, Victory, Bear Republic, and other than the Witbier, no Belgians at all.
I suppose some things only change slowly. Here's to hoping that SC becomes a beer destination some day.

Other than Closed for Business, this downtown Mellow Mushroom has one of the largest draft selections in Charleston. And they are constantly rotating which beers they have on-tap. They also have a huge selection of bottled beers. They also have a 100 beer club (free to join) where you get a free shirt and mug once you drink 100 different beers. I think this is pretty neat because it gives you a goal and lets you branch out with your selection.

The upstairs bar is nice and there are lots of tables to sit at upstairs. There is also a really nice outdoor deck with a cool mural that they light up with a black light when it gets dark.

The food in generally really good. The hummus and the Kosmic Karma pizza are my two favorites. The food can be a little pricey but it doesn't usually disappoint.

Overall, I go here for the awesome beer selection, but the food is really good and it's a cool place to hang out with friends.

Went there tonight for some dinner and some beer. I was very pleasantly suprised by the beer selection they had. They had around 10 different items on tap, and some decent selections of things that I had not tried. They had a respectable amount of bottled beer as well.

Food is great as usual. The pizzas here are really good and you can get some different things.

Service was a little slow, but it was good. They took care of us, but they were busy.

Atmosphere was good, but it was crowded. Its not really fair for me to ding them as a Virginia Tech meeting place, but that did take away a little bit as people were jumping line to go upstairs for the gathering up there.

Overall a nice place to stop by.

This location seems to have been toned down quite a bit as compared to other MMs to fit into the Charleston atmosphere. But they have the same commitment to good pizza and craft beer. I especially like the second floor with its exposed brick walls, molded tin ceiling and worn wood floors.

They had 16 on tap including Coast IPA which I took advantage of. The only real down side for me was the use of chilled glasses. The staff was helpful and the pizza was pretty solid.

Another reliable MM location.
