We came here on our last night of vacation; I suggest reservations on weekend nights as we did not have one and ended up having to sit at the bar as it was quite busy. Beer selection is outrageous, it was difficult to select just one! Beer flights are available, however. My friend I shared a Scotch egg, lobster corndogs,... More

I was there on a Friday night and it was for sure a local place to hang out, the menu was OK but the beer selection was good. Didn't have a mixed drink. The service was good and for a kicked back very casual beer focused time, it is a good choice.

This is "hidden" gem on a Cumberland street just off East Bay. It looks small when you first enter but it extends into the back. Great beer selection with flight options if you can't make up your mind. Not a beer drinker - they have a full bar too. Check out their happy hour and daily specials. $6 burgers on... More

We absolutely loved this place. We were celebrating the wife's birthday. It was a little packed because it was Friday night. We sat in the enclosed patio area. It was cool outside but they had large heaters out there. The beer selection is awesome and reasonably priced. The food was surprisingly good. We got the potato bombs, BBQ pork spring... More

We got to Charleston on Christmas day and we knew the pickings may be slim. This place was NOT what we thought we would find! My wife and I each got a flight to start and you have got to try the pickles. So worth it! Surprisingly good fish and chips (a Christmas Day tradition) too. The service was very... More

Husband and I were in Charleston over Christmas break. It was after 10 and they were serving food until 11 I think. Had the pizza- little different taste, but I would not order it again. Husband had the Farmhouse burger that he loved and added pork belly to it. Also, house made pickles were awesome. Big beer list but did... More

We first went on Wednesday night for Ramen & Randall. They had superb Ramen with Randallized (sp?) beer on special. The wait staff were very friendly and knowledgeable. We went back again for drinks and sat at the bar. The bartenders were very knowledgable about all the beers both on tap and otherwise, offering samples until we found what we... More

Excellent selection of beer one of the most extensive I have seen. Never left this place sober, it's OK we were walking. We ate both nights we visited, Food was good although pretty expensive, right at the tipping point of not being worth the price, but as happens from time to time, beer got in the way and we dished...

Matthew at the back bar was excellent in helping us choose from the vast assortment of draft and bottled beers. Helpful, not snobby, clean. You can tell they care here- all around [they care about what you don't even realize- because it matters]. they have great food to go with the drinks- and it's set up to go the beer.... More
