A Beer as Sweet as Savannah Honey

This week’s toast is sweet.

Starting tomorrow, South Carolina will be able to sip Honey Comb Over Double IPA from Holy City Brewing. Brewed with honey from Savannah Bee Company honey and Warrior, Centennial, Mosaic, and Cascade hops, it is a birthday tribute to Total Wine Charleston, who is celebrating 10 years in the city.

This beer packs a bit of a sting at 9.0% ABV, but notes of biscuit and honey make it an easy sip to savor. It will be on tap and in cans at all of South Carolina’s Total Wine locations starting this Saturday, just in time to fill those late summer coolers.

If you’re in the Charleston area and looking to try it, why not visit the Ballpark Festival of Beers? Joe Riley Stadium turns into a huge outdoor beer house with more than 100 different beers to sample plus live music and food trucks. This is a rain or shine event, and the Honey Comb Over will be just one of the many beers available for sampling.
