An old store front in Downtown Charleston houses Closed for Business. Walking in you are greeted by a long bar to the right and lounge chairs to the left. Dim pendant lights dangle from the ceiling and wood is everywhere you look. The bar is dimly lit all around. A set of washrooms break up the bar area and back seating area. Behind the cozy bar sits what reminds me of a library. There are odds and ends along the shelves, pictures, knick-knacks, old books, and bottles of booze. Simply noticing everything displayed could take you half the night. A couple chalkboards hang between the bric a brac and advertise what's new on the taplist and what's coming next.
The taplist is extensive, 40 or so handles, with beers being broken down by style. Multiple sized pours for each are also available, labeled, and priced. I like that option. Beer was focused largely on the Carolinas but there were a good amount of other states represented as well. The bartenders were quick to chat both nights I stopped in, giving us a rundown of some new taps and of the area. Picked up some good advice. Prices were fair and there were some damn fine choices to be had. I'm pretty sure I drank a couple gallons of Duck Rabbit's Baltic Porter while I wasted away the nights.

Very nice bar with decent food and friendly service. I actually went there multiple times during my short visit and there was quite a bit of change in the tap list (always a good sign). The service fluctuated between superb and good the times I went was definitely dependent on busy-ness.
There was a good selection of locals, rare-ish, and other beers on their many taps. They were awesome about questions, samples, and everything.
Food was delicious as well.
Would go back in a second. Wish it was closer to me.
