The Resy Guide to Finding Great Beer (and Food) in Charleston


In Charleston, you’re never too far from the beach or a comfortable porch hang, which means a good beer is never out of reach either. We are, of course, a town that appreciates its brews, which means great and thoughtful beer selections can be found everywhere, from top-tier restaurants that integrate beer as part of their culinary flexes to modest watering holes where a koozie is in hand. (Pun intended.)   

Looking for a beer and a bite? There are no skips at O.G. brewpub Edmund’s Oast. For an exceptional brew you’ve never even heard of before, The Whale has you covered. And if a crazy-long tap list is on your list, Bay Street Biergarten and Charleston Beer Works are going to be your best bets.

Here are eleven of our favorites to incorporate into your summer stroll through the Holy City.
