This past Tuesday, Beer Advocate released its list of the 50 Best New Breweries in the country, and if I've telling you about it, you know a Charleston business was included. The seven-month-old Munkle Brewing Co. was chosen for inclusion in the website's annual list.
Here's what Beer Advocate had to say: "While Charleston is in no short supply of quality beer, the so-called Holy City was without its own Trappist-inspired ale maker until October 2017. Filling the void is Munkle Brewing Company, set in the midst of downtown’s densely trafficked historic district....(Their) stable of beers includes a Witbier, a Blonde, a Dubbel, and Brugge City Brune—a Belgian Brown Ale that’s authenticity is amped up by Belgian candi syrup. A shiny, new taproom showcases a 20-barrel brewhouse and is open to the public six days a week."
Since 2011, Beer Advocate has released the annual feature on brewery openings. They ask their writers, subscribers, and followers for suggestions and then choose the winners.
You can see the full list here.
Munkle Brewing Co. is located at 1513 Meeting Street.
