Here's the Schedule for this Year's Charleston Beer Week Finale

beerweek14And just like that, the 2014 Charleston Beer Week is about to come to an end. True to form, the festival will be going out with a bang - Saturday boasts six events stretched out over 13 hours.

The party gets started bright and early with the 9 am "Double Cask Breakfast" at the Homegrown Brewhouse in Summerville and will keep going strong with a late night event at Edmund's Oast.

Many of the events will feature local beers, which is a great way to close out the week. Freehouse, COAST, and Holy City will be strongly represented, but it's the Whole Hog BBQ at COAST that earns my pick-of-the-day. BBQed Pig and Beer - I mean, com on, what else do you need?

Don't have the extra cash for that event? Many of Saturday's event do not require a ticket, so make sure you enjoy at least one party before it's too late!
