Like all things in the South, the beer in your pint glass or whiskey in your highball comes with a story. Pull up a chair and immerse yourself in the spirit of Bluffton, South Carolina, at Burnt Church Distillery, River Dog Brewing Co, and more.
Led by female head brewer Amelia Keefe, this veteran Lowcountry brewery celebrates a decade of delicious drafts. This past fall, the Cirque Du Solera wood-aged sour brought home a silver medal from the Great American Beer Festival. For a true taste of community, order a Perkolatte stout brewed with coffee from Corner Perk in downtown Bluffton.
What’s better than small-batch locally crafted spirits? Those that tell a story and give back to the community in which they’re created. Burnt Church Distillery draws on local folklore to influence the taste of its spirits and in turn weave in Lowcountry lore with each bottle. Visit The Sanctuary tasting room to sample bourbon, gin, whiskey, and moonshine made into tantalizing cocktails. Pair the libations with a charcuterie board or brick-oven pizza from Pizza Co. next door.
With a taproom, tavern, and beer garden, there’s always something happening at Southern Barrel Brewing. Whether you’re simply stopping by for an afternoon pint, digging into a burger or tacos for dinner, or relaxing in the beer garden with your four-legged friend (who has their own puppy menu), Southern Barrel serves suds to suit.
