I have been a fan of Westbrook’s beers ever since a 6 pack of White Thai appeared under the Christmas tree from my sister who resides in the Palmetto State. Fast forward 3+ years and many cans and bottles smuggled up to Philly later and a pilgrimage was made.

Place is clean, cool and efficiently staffed.
Limited release or brewery-only beers available for onsite consumption. Cool swag for sale. Cans to go and possibly other bottles depending on when you visit.
Tour! We were lucky to be there when they started an informal tour. No questions too geeky, yet they were evasive when asked for release dates on BA MC. However, they let us look around the barrel rooms, explained a lot about the BA technique and let us take pictures of those precious MC barrels.

Limited hours, Tuesday - Friday 4-7, Saturday 12-6 so plan accordingly.
Limited or no food, unless there is an event or food truck, but given the limited hours, perhaps you’ll hit them between lunch and dinner anyway.
Aside from the clean and cool setting of the taproom, there are no diversions or attractions to make one want to linger beyond a couple rounds. Not that a place needs TV’s everywhere or a carnival outside, but some tailgate type dude-sports outside may offer a visitor or family some reason to stick around and enjoy the place. That being said, kids will be very bored here, this is a sanctuary to beer, nothing more, nothing less.
A warehouse of equally huge size to the brewery building was being framed when I visited. They said this will be almost exclusively for their barrel program. Hooray to that!

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.

Solid place! Nice selection of beer with some rare ones! Great on site cellar beer to purchase/drink! Will definitely go back when traveling through!

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.
