Palmetto Brewing Co
289 Huger Street
Charleston, SC 29403
Touted to be the oldest of its kind in the state, Palmetto Brewing Co was founded by Louis Bruce and Ed Falkenstein in 1993 after a wind-surfing expedition to the Columbia River Gorge. It is the first in Charleston
since the Prohibition Era. The setting is in an former warehouse and the high ceiling with wooden beams add character to this place. Named after its namesake pre-Civil War brewery in Downtown Charleston
which shut down in 1913, it has rare artifacts and documents on display for tours. Amber Ale, Pale, Charleston Lager and Espresso Porter are their year-round drafts while their seasonal brews are also packed with flavor. They also host concerts once a week by talented musicians. Their tasting room is open five days a week.
