Top notch drinking and dining destination, with an aesthetic very reminiscent of the Publican in Chicago. Large airy minimalist space with a collection of antique cutting boards hanging high on the back wall above a row of booth seating. Open kitchen in the back.

House beers here were impressive, creative and hitting style hallmarks at the same time. Favorites were the house lager, Parsimony, and a new IPA called Thick & Juicy. We passed around a few house tasters and tried all that were available. They had quite a number of esoteric drafts that were very tempting, but there wasn't enough time.

Food was great, we stuck to small plates and tried all the starters and sides. For me, the standout was the house-made charcuterie and cheese plate. Nice variety of flavors and textures across the board. Veggie sides and plates were all uniquely prepared and tasty.

Service was friendly and helpful, timely and professional. Lots of staff running the place efficiently.
I'd revisit again whenever in town, definitely a strong choice for best beer & dining destination in Charleston.
With CBX moving in next door in early 2017, it will be the #1 place to go for all your beer needs.

Outstanding place. Great selection of in-house beer and unique choices from other breweries. Large place with indoor and outdoor seating. Food is excellent, service is excellent. Staff is knowledgeable about their beers.

After missing EO 6 months ago I was excited to finally enter the hallowed ground. Boy was I not disappointed.

I only drank their beers (holy s%$t, they have the best selection on tap ever) and every one was well crafted if not amazing. Their belgians, sours and hops were out-of-this-world good. You really need a few days to try all their beers and fully appreciate them.

The food was damn near perfect (charcuterie plate) for beer, the staff was wonderful (one of the brewers shared a growler of his delicious home brew) and the setting was swanky but not pretentious, classy but approachable. Such a great experience at a world-class location The best place I've been on the East Coast hands down.

Went twice over the 3 days we were in town. Really cool atmosphere inside, amazing beer selection, and very good cheese and charcuterie plates. We were also very impressed with the in-house brewed beers. The entree menu is a bit over the top so I recommend sitting at the bar and getting a few beers and a small plate or appetizer. They don't do flights but you can get 4oz pours of the in-house beers. We'll definitely be back next time we are in town.

Was here twice so far. Was so crowded on a Friday afternoon we sat outside and had ok service - not great but OK - I think they were slightly understaffed. Food was different from your normal bar fare or restaurant fare. It was good tho but different - see the menu on the web site. Outside seating was varied from small intimate seating to larger picnic type tables. You could easily serve an army here!

Second time I was here we sat at the bar - very very nice inside with loads of character. Incredible line up of beers here. I can honestly say there is no way you couldn't find something you like. Just about every flavor under the sun!! Since this is not my home city I have only been here twice. Once I go back to Charleston again - I WILL be back!

Brew pub with exceptional food. House beers were outstanding. Great outdoor seating with one bar is great option for a quickie. Of all the craft beer places in Charleston, this is the one that stands above the rest.

Awesome tap list and the outdoor patio area is amazing, cool vibe, nice and chill. It's kind of in the middle of nowhere but a quick ride (10 minutes) out of downtown Charleston. The PB&J beer was so good we went back a 2nd time.

One of the best (and newer) restaurants in town. Spacious bar, same for the dining area; however, the long community tables are high chairs which can be a little problematic for older parents, so ask about seating when you make your reservation. The food is fantastic. The draft and bottle offerings are long and varied. Excellent service. Well worth the steeper prices.

We were in February 2014 just after opening. Food and beer selection outstanding! Our service was very bad. I hope our waiter has found another field to work in because was not cut out to wait tables. He was overwelmed with all the people he was trying service. We were contacted by a member of management because we sitting there without anything to drink, no water nothing. By know means would this stop me from going back, this place is outstanding. World Class.

Really dug Edmund's Oast.

Vibe: Big, open food/beer hall, with an open/demonstration kitchen at one end. Very loud, but inviting and friendly.

Quality: Incredible beer list, and wonderful food. Top notch.

Service: Seated at a table (with reservation), and had outstanding service.

Selection: The beer list when I was there (March, 2015) was over-the-top. They had TONS of beers I've been seeking out for quite a while. I'm not sure if this is the norm, but they had something for everyone - big stouts from Dino S'Mores from Off Color, a bunch of Prairie Beers, and their own beers were tasty as well.

Food: Probably the strong point here - their charcuterie is great, sliced (and aged) just as ordered. I appreciated a little bit lighter fare here in comparison to other restaurants in Charleston (which are great, but also great in number).

I'll be back.

Nice looking place. Good beer list. 3 of us went and wanted to sit down there were a few empty tables they said a 2 hour wait. We went to the bar to get beer and see if something would open up. Service started off fine. As soon as we can to a break in people bartender hand us the menus. That's where it all ended. We walked to the service end of the bar but stayed back from where wait staff had to use took 20 min to get beer. Went to other better places that did want our money.
