V: A very big spot, with exposed brick walls and TVs all around the place. A spacious bar with a nice patio area. It wasn't too packed when I was there, so the atmosphere was mellow.

Q: In general the quality of beer was OK, but not mind-blowing. Lots of local / regional beers, with a bunch of German beers thrown in for good measure. At the time, they had 23 draft beers and 44 in bottles and cans.

S: The bartender was friendly, attentive and prompt, but not overly chatty. I didn't have any questions about the beer, but they lose points for not giving me a pint glass with my can of beer.

S: A decent selection of local stuff (Holy City, Palmetto, Fatty's), regional (Highwire, Riverdog), national (Southern Tier, Stone) and a lot of German (Gaffel, Paulaner, Spaten). There are some excellent beers here, but there's also a lot of dead wood (Peroni, Kronenbourg, Michelob Ultra on-tap). It's nice to have local / regional beers, but it would be good to get some more national and foreign beers as well.

Nice, sprawling sports bar/biergarten kind of place as far as the vibe goes. Decent tap list, full bar, full menu.
I was there on a Sunday and it was packed. There is lots of outdoor seating (including outdoor taps) if the weather permits. The food I had was very good and about par for the course price-wise. The beer list is extensive and includes a good generally overview of local and international beers. Nice place to grab a bit or get some quality beers that manages to be pretty casual. I would go back.

Bier Garten meets sports bar meets nice restaurant. Outside seating is fun(in cooler weather). Giant bottle list from Belgium, Germany, etc. Plenty of SC beers too. Could be my new favorite place for beer drinking in Charleston.

Only been once for an hour or so. But i had a good time, great beer selection (i only got draft from the bar) and the most fat guy tater tots of all time. Price was up there as expected, but TV's and space galore, so overall a cool experience.

Nice place with lots of indoor and outdoor seating, but IMO the beer selection includes many beers you can find in most chain restaurants/bars or at the corner 7-11. Staff is not particularly knowledgeable about the beers they sell. Loaded with TVs on all the sports channels backed up by loud music. I've never had the food, but it looks good. To me, it's just another place with nothing too exciting in the beer department. There are better choices in Charleston.
