A smallish bar with a cozy feel and a decidedly hipster beer-bar crowd. The decor is creatively eclectic with lots of beer signs and interesting light fixtures. The beer selection is very good, bordering on excellent. They had a good mix of local brews, highly regarded craft beers, and a handful of rarities. Not on the level of a place like the Brickstore or Toronado, but quite good.

Service was good, considering the crowd and the servers seemed to be reasonably well versed on the beers that were on tap. Beers were served from clean lines and into proper glassware where applicable.

The food was the real standout, the menu is small but well thought out. Good sandwiches and some beer cuisine such as mussels cooked in beer. Poutine at a beer bar in South Carolina? That alone makes this a must visit for any BA in Charleston.

Stopped here for lunch while touring Charleston and really enjoyed it. Loved the quirky atmosphere, pub style with modern touches. Service was very friendly and helpful. I managed to spill two large glasses of water and our waitress was so nice about the huge mess. Even offered to replace my sons almost gone fries that were lost in the flood. Really appreciated her kindness. The beer battered onion rings were fantastic, my son had the pork slap sandwich and reported it delicious. I had the waldorf salad and it was ok but not great. My husband had the cobb salad and loved it. it looked much better than mine also. As for beer they had the Palmetto homefront IPA, Stone Saison and Gratzer Westbrook reported to be very unique. The first two beer were very good especially the Stone but we knew it would be. We would go back here if I hadn't made such a mess and am probably banned.
