Had a super fun dinner visit there taking my girlfriend out. We both really enjoyed our food and the tap selection was excellent. Not sure I'll ever be in SC again but would happily stop in here again.

Considering their distribution footprint, as well as the overall size of their facility, I'm surprised at how small their taproom remains, which in turn influences how limited its hours of operation are. So driving all the way from Ohio, we had a small window to arrive on a Saturday afternoon, but made it with two hours to spare. I can't tell you how many times we wanted to swing by on the way to Tampa Bay Beer Week but never could since they aren't open during the time we would be in transit, so it was nice to finally tick that box.

The indoor seating really does consist of only a few hightops, and that's it. Perhaps COVID is to blame for the lack of seats at the bar, but they at least seem to have blocked off the primary parking lot in order to set up a good amount of picnic tables outside. However, only a few of these have umbrellas, which were at a premium on this hot yet rain threatening day.

The taplist isn't too impressively long, but is well distributed between styles. What's more is, fortunately for us, they had 2016 Tequila Cake on draft, which was a fantastic offering to the beer gods. A guest draft of Free Reign's Night Moves served as an amazing contrast between the two as well as a fresh 2022 Mexican Cake, as it commendably held its own with a high quality without being too sweet.

The taproom has a few packaged snacks on hand for sale, but nothing substantial. You'll see plenty of rugrats running about with nothing to do, whether inside or out, but just don't try to bring your dog into the taproom. Aside from that, the only other thing I'd quibble about is that the staff on hand doesn't seem to know anything about the beer, to the point that they had a few listed on the larger chalk menu without their actual names, let alone ABVs.

Unpretentious vibe for such a well known place. Servers were helpful without being obtrusive. The beers were top notch. I had s flight of stouts that were all phenomenal including two Mexican Cake variants. My girlfriend had IPAs. We split an immense pretzel that was very good. A large number of beers on sale including cellared stouts. The only negative for me is the limited hours that they are open. If you’re in the area it’s well worth a visit.

Gorgeous facility, probably as many Evil Twin beers on tap than westbrook offerings. Bartender was working his first shift. Overall, decent. Would go back but not in a huge hurry to

Great place for an afternoon or Saturday beer. Large bar, plenty of indoor and outdoor seating. Decent parking including large overflow lot. The bartenders have always been knowledgeable and friendly. Large tap list. Flights are an option. Bottles, cans and 32oz crowlers for takeout. Vintage bottles for purchase/consumption on site. Friendly folks. I have a good time every time I visit.

Nice place fairly large with an almost circular bar in the middle with a smattering of tables around the perimeter. If you sit at the bar as you walk in the door you are facing the actual brewery and can see the vats. Looks chic modern with light wood and lots of concrete. Quality is pretty good, their beers are quite good. Service was ok, bartenders were fairly knowledgeable but you got conflicted statements of things if you asked different people the same thing. Selection was ok mostly IPAs on tap and several different DDH versions of Two claw. Had an extensive list of 22 oz bottles for on site consumption with anywhere from overpriced to wildly overpriced ranging from I think the Low $20s-$350. Capitalism at its finest. I'm not sure why the on site bottles could not be purchased to take home considering the prices you were paying.

Probably the most popular spot in the up and coming Charlestown brewery scene. I got there 10 minutes before they opened and they had a line on a regular day. Famous for their wedding cake and Evil Twin collabs. The brewery is nice, and they do some quality stuff. They could push for world class in the future.

Came here with Da Boss yesterday after a rainy day at Boone Hall Plantation and a wonderful lunch at R.B's on Shem Creek.

Vibe was decent as the room was full of folks presumably there mostly for the Mexican Samoa. Very polished and clean environment.

Quality of the beers that were available was solid although i was not hugely impressed with the two beers i sampled.

Service was solid after initially getting a tab going as i was able to check out pretty quickly after ordering some Cake to go and pay for the brews and swag.

Selection was a bit disappointing as they had maybe 10 beers on tap.

Overall definitely worth a stop if you are in the greater Charleston area.

My visit did not meet my expectations. The tasting room itself was very posh, clean lines and hard surfaces which isn't usually my thing. The quality of the beer was good which I figured it would. The service was OK at best as the servers weren't rude or over friendly and got miffed if you asked too many questions or didn't understand what they were saying. I got the impression they all had high opinions of themselves. "It's my first time in this place dude, chill out". What I was most disappointed about was the lack of selection other than their readily available distributed beers. There was only one 'brewery only' beer and I was expecting more. Maybe I had too high of an expectation but either way I was disappointed.

Clean and fancy tasting room... Almost felt like a winery walking in. Dead quiet. Greeted with a straight-faced 'hey'. Beers were solid with a great gose, good hops and a tasty cognac-aged ale. The server loosened up and after some music started playing things lightened up. Ok service, not particularly friendly, good beers.
