I hadn't heard of this place until a couple people in Charlotte mentioned it and a handful of Charleston locals said it's their favorite brewery in the area. Had to stop, right? Holy City is located back off the road in a small industrial/warehouse strip in North Charleston. It's actually tough to pick out if you're not sure where you're going so keep your eyes open and trust directions. The warehouse has an awesome looking custom paintjob along the whole stretch of their privately owned exterior. The garage doors were open the day I stopped by and big industrial fans were blowing to make a sticky day manageable.

The bar is long and accommadating. Seating probably 25 people. A few bar tables sit here and there around the warehouse. The brewing equipment is in the open and immediately to your left as you enter. Going with the long bar is an extensively long taplist of all house brew. 18 handles to be exact. All of which, that I tasted, were good. We could choose from everything from IIPAs to smoked jalapeno porters to Scratch Mtn Dew to everything in between. Muy Amigo; a jalapeno, cilantro, pineapple IPA was a highlight along with All Up in Yo Porter; a smoked jalapeno porter. Both were very well made. Low Country Dark Ale and Overly Friendly were delicious as well. Like I said, everything sampled was good.

The atmosphere was laid back and fun. It's a big space but still remains cozy. Everyone was having fun and laughing, very welcoming. The crowd seemed to be mostly locals and they were enjoying themselves on this warm Tuesday afternoon. Growlers are cheap. Beer is flowing like mad. Merchandise is a plenty. Good times are to be had. I highly recommend a stop at Holy City and after hitting 18 breweries on a week long roadtrip this place was up near the top.

Holy city is the best of the breweries in Charleston, hands down.
