Edmund's Oast is the only one on this list to brew its own beer. And frankly, we're blushing a bit to mention this brewpub-meets-cocktail-cottage-meets-restaurant yet again. Maybe we have a bit of a crush, OK? But more than likely, it's just that the beer is damn good, and they don’t discriminate, pouring everything from their own beer (including a locally famous PB&J pint), to Evil Twin, to things you’ve never heard of. Just go, stare up at the wall of beer, and pick one. You’ll understand why we’re smitten.
You may not find this place on many lists (until now), but House of Brews is a hidden gem on the way to Sullivan’s Island. It has unique beers from around the world, claiming to have the largest beer selection in the area, and offers all beers on draft either at the bar or in a growler (to be taken home). There’s always something going on at House of Brews (open mic nights on Friday and Saturdays), so make sure to stop on by and meet all the nice Charlestonians that seem to fill up this spot each and every night.
