Last minute notice on this one, but Ted's Butcherblock is hosting a "Coldest Beer Dinner of the Year" that I thought worthy of passing along word of.
Four beers are up for tasting in four course. The dinner is Thursday, August 26, at 7:30 p.m. and is $38. Make reservations at (843) 577-0094. 334 East Bay Street in downtown Charleston.
Here's their description of the event, with some extra beer info and links from BeerAdvocate inserted:
