A Sneak Peak of Edmund's Oast

In progress

In progress

Last week a few media-types and bloggers were able to get a sneak peak of Edmund's Oast, a soon-to-be-opened brewpub on Morrison Drive. A few members of their team were on hand to give tours, hand out beer samples, and discuss their vision for the new business. The crew seemed to be just as excited about their upcoming (and tentative) February opening as the rest of the city appears to be.

After my visit to the developing restaurant space, I have to admit my anticipation has grown. Here are some of the main takeaways and notes I gathered during my visit to Edmund's Oast:

      • Samples I tasted: "Lord Proprietors Mild" (brewed with Charleston tea), a Dark Wheat with notes of chocolate and caramel, and a sour beer that was somewhat reminiscent of Westbrook's Gose.
