I love this place, extremely chill and great brews. The music is never the same, the beers change frequently, the bartenders are great and knowledgeable. The prices can be a little high but the atmosphere and feel more than make up for it. They feature many South Carolina beers (Conquest, River Dog, Etc) along with much harder to find brews. from around the country.

I finally got a chance to stop and give the Keg Cowboy a try after hours (as more of a local watering hole as opposed to buying homebrew supplies, which is their primary business; my brother does a good bit of homebrewing and said their prices are generally good). Overall, I like the place. It has a laid-back, unpretentious atmosphere and seems like a great place to go for a few pints after a long day at work or a lazy Saturday afternoon.

The beer selection is a little bit limited, as there are only 8 taps currently. That's not a bad thing, and once upon a time would have been a great selection for a place around here. What's there was very good, with a few of the selections being unavailable anywhere else in the immediate area. The selection itself is varied and covers the bases, and noting the nature of this business (the bar thing is a side business, more or less), that's not really a negative. There are some nice bottled selections available as well, but that's not what most will be coming here for.

Prices are on the high side (think $6 a pint, more for some, less for others), but again, considering the nature of the business, I understand why. This is a great place to drop in and have a beer flight or have a couple of pints, and taken as that, as a way to experience new beers that you might not be able to get elsewhere (at least around here), it's worth it. The service was friendly and fast and the beers were at the right temperature (definitely not warm, but not on the verge of frozen either). The biggest question with any place where you spend time and money is whether or not you feel like it's worth it to go back. I do and will return, whenever I get the chance and they have some interesting offerings on tap.

i was pretty happy to find a home brew place closer to my house. i was even happier to find out how chill it is. the owner is very helpful and didnt make me feel stupid for not being an expert brewer. any question i asked was answered and he gave me a lot of advice on my brewing. they also teach classes and sale beer. my only regret is that i cant get in there as often as i would like. also they sale fresh ingredients. there is a really nice atmosphere, almost has the feel of hanging out at a good friends house.

I recently moved to the area and have been wanting to brew for years but didn't know where to go or how to go about it. Fortunately I stumbled on Keg Cowboy! These guys know home brewing and are super eager to share their knowledge. Not only did I get an extremely helpful class on brewing but everything to get myself up and going. Without a doubt, anyone wanting to start brewing needs to start here. You will be brewing great beer, have supplies, advice and a plenty of new friends to boot! THANKS KEG COWBOY

So stoked to have a homebrew/kegerator supply store in my hometown!

In addition, these guys are friendly, knowledgable, and patient. I got home, only to realize I had forgotten a crucial piece for my kegerator, and they stayed open an additional 15 minutes on a Saturday so I could get back.

All the homebrew ingredients are stored in a climate-controlled walk-in, and they teach home brewing classes on a regular basis.

If you live in the area, love homebrewing, or want to build a kegerator...you're silly not to swing in and say hello.

I got a great value for my money on my homebrew kegging system. And they always have everything I need in stock. They are competitive with all other online places plus they give you all the advice and help that you could ever want. This is my LHBS and these guys are awesome, they have exceeded all of my expectations. Huge selection of ingredients and they have everything else you need to fulfill all your homebrewing needs, plus a friendly staff to attend to all of your needs. The guys that work here are really great and this is one of the many reasons that I will use Keg Cowboy exclusively for all of my homebrewing needs!

Awesome atmosphere with very knowledge staff to help you with any equipment or ingredients you need for you brewing. They have everything you need from brewing buckets and sanitizer to grain and hops. Matt has extensive knowlege of beer brewing and can help you with any recipe questions and he grows his own hops. They also have beer brewing classes on Saturdays where you can learn how to brew so you can start the addiction yourself. I have only been there a hand full of times,since im a newbie, but I will always go to Keg Cowboy for all my homebrewing needs.
