Westbrook was a somewhat strange place. Pulling into the reserve parking lot, back in the trees and walking up to the brewery/taproom is like walking into a great Northern Lodge. A huge stone facade greets you as you walk up, everything new, no expense spared. The taproom, at the front of the brewery, was high-ceilinged and oval in space. Off to the left was a wall mounted shelf witht-shirts and glassware. To the right were bathrooms and coolers for to-go sales. The oval bar plopped directly in the middle of the sterile space. The taplist written on the window by the front door.

It was a fairly busy day when I stopped in. There was an after work crowd and some out of towners. Five beers on tap, four of which were canned, the last being a tap only pineapple IPA. The Gose was as great as always. The IPA was good, like usual. White Thai I ddn't have and I foret the other canned offering. The tap only brew was Pina Col-IPA... My mother always told me if I can't say anything nice don't say anything at all.

When we first arrived two people were tending bar, which already seemed to be stretching it. Shortly after one of the bartenders gathered some people up for a tour, leaving a new guy, very overwhelmed with service. The credit card reader on the iPad was acting up and compounding the problem. Service was slow as molasses. As we got up to leave an apology was offered, appreciated.

In a nutshell I'm not near as fond of Westbrook as most people seem to be. The only beer available I couldn't find at every liquor store in town was mediocre to say the least. The service was....slow. The crowd was uppity. The atmosphere sterile and uncomfortable. Take that as you will because like I said, everyone else seems to love the place.

Visited Westbrook on Sat Sept 27, 2014 - and loved it! Great place, great beers, friendly folk behind the counter! Nice upscale feel. If you're in the Charleston area it's worth a trip over to Mount Pleasant to find it! Very happy to be able to buy their brews here in Birmingham. I'm sipping (and enjoying!) a One Claw right now!

Ohhh man i miss the good ol' days. I went to the brewery for the first time about 3.5 years ago. It is the nicest brewery in charleston. That being said i mostly avoid it now. It's gathered quite a following, which is well deserved. The staff/owners seem not to be so concerned with the tasting room anymore as they are with brewing funky stuff and expanding distribution. So i oblige them and add a few less folks to the tasting room and just grab their beer at the store. Beers get a better rating than 3.75 from me, but for visiting it's just a cluster and can make you regret the trip over there.
