As I walk in, there is a spacious L shaped bar, and several low top tables going down the long and narrow dinning area. There are some couches to relax on and plenty of eclectic stuff on the wall.
I find a spot at the bar, and the service is top notch. Friendly, knowledgeable, and quick. He knew about the different beers, recommended stuff from the food menu, and obviously takes pride in what CfB has to offer.
Plenty of stuff on tap. Had some Westbrook IPA, Coast Porter, and Grand Teton Oud Bruin. Definitely one of the better beer bars in town. They had a cask engine as well, but nothing was on when I visited.
The food menu is on the smaller side. I went with the Mussels. While the Mussels were of great quality and flavorful, they were topped with fries and a mayo aioli sauce. That sounded just crazy enough to work, but it was a bit of overload. Mussels...great, fries...good, aioli...over barring, and they did not mix that well with the bivalves IMO. I am going to have to go with the Pork Slap, or one of their other items next time.
A great atmosphere, a very good beer selection, great service, and interesting food (even though I was not in love with what I had). I am a fan.

Visited Jan 22 2014 on a COLD Wednesday evening, so it wasn't very crowded. Absolutely outstanding beer selection. (Food - I had the mussels - wasn't too shabby either, but that wasn't why I was there.)
Wait staff was very knowledgeable, and very enthusiastic about their offerings. Service was prompt - really can't say enough good things about the experience!
This is on King Street in Charleston, so expect to spend more than you'd like. But it's worth it.

We had to wait in line to get in. Only 10 min or so but once we got in we had a good time. The seat yourself was confusing for such a busy place but the good was good and the selection top notch. There seems to be two bars, one on front that was full and one in the back that seemed like a service bar

This place is awesome. Probably the best bar in Charleston in my opinion. HUGE selection of great beers in a variety of sizes. The best draft beer selection in Charleston.
This place has big bar and lots of seating throughout the rest of the restaurant. The decor in the restaurant is really cool and it has the perfect bar ambiance. The food is also really good. They sort of have poutine! It's not as good as the real stuff but it's a rare offering in the States. Especially so far South.
It is a pretty expensive bar though (as are most places on King St.). My only complaint is that I can't afford to go here as often as I want.

I was able to stop by for an extended visit during my stay in Charleston.
This is not that big of an establishment. There is a small bar to your right as you enter. Tables against the wall and more seating in the back room. There are two unisex bathrooms between the two main spaces.
I only saw one TV, so go for the beer and not the ability to watch the games. Rock tunes in the background were turned low enough to not inhibit conversation.
The table service is friendly, and knowledgeable but a touch slow. I was ok with it as we were not in any big hurry.
The menu is not huge, but what we had was a solid yeoman like effort. I think most folks will find something they will like.
Beer is the star here. They have a solid selection of taps that are broke out by color and or style. I like that you can get 10 oz, 16 oz or full liters. The 10 ozs are a great way to really sample a lot of beers. They also offer flights which is always nice to see.
I will have no hesitation going back next time I'm in this gem of a city.

Beautiful little beer bar decor is nice lots of wood flickering lights in the fireplace bring back childhood.
Nice beer selection not hundreds of taps but good quality brews all around. Nice selection of local brews plus more notable beer from around the country.
Service was good warned me about what I was ordering which might be valuable to someone not familiar with good beer.
Selection again not huge but good quality all around.
Only had the onion strings they were good.
Prices seem reasonable better then many places at home. Would highly recomend this place if your vacationing in Charleston.
