The area now boasts 30 production breweries and brewpubs, with two additional breweries recently announced and set to open in the coming year. Many breweries are currently undergoing expansion efforts, like Holy City Brewing's move to a 20,000 square foot space on four acres overlooking Noisette Creek, taking place later this year. You can see each of these breweries on this handy Google Map created by CBW organizers.
While local breweries and brewpubs will be a primary focus for the week, events will also feature many regional and national brands, making for a diverse lineup which will appeal to a broad audience. This year will again feature many outdoor events, such as a Golf Tournament benefiting Lowcountry Local First, Guided Kayak Tour & Lowcountry Boil, Yard Pong Tournament, and a Disc Golf Tournament in Park Circle.
Many brewery events will also feature "one-off" collaboration beer releases, often brewed just for Charleston Beer Week, while other events will feature various food pairings, beer games, tastings and style-specific offerings.
All official events will be posted to the official website http://charlestonbeerweek.com over the next few weeks, with event announcements taking place on social media.
