(Updates at the bottom.)

The Craftsmen is due to open in another couple of months at just off Market Street at 12 Cumberland Street and bring to Charleston another 38 taps of solid craft beer, loads of IPAs, classic craft beer bar food (much of which will be made in house).

Take a read of the preview at the Charleston City Paper.

Yes, I'm adding it to my list

Update May 10: The Charleston City Paper's Stephanie Barna is keeping up with the spot and dropped by for a follow-up visit and shares some shots of the remaking of the spot due to open around the July time frame; take a read here.

Update July 31: We're more than a couple of months out, but most key work on the Craftsmen Kitchen & Tap House is complete and the spot continues to inch closer to opening.

The spot recently played host to the 100th Guerrilla Cuisine and promises they'll be open real soon. If you're eager to hear just as soon as they open the spot now has a website and Facebook page.

Update January 5: If you hadn't noticed, the schedule for the opening of the Craftsmen has indeed slipped, but the restaurant continues to offer more updates of its construction efforts and Eater Charleston notes that the spot is in the "final stages of construction". 

Update March 1: Welcome to another month and The Craftsmen continues to get ever so close.

But those 48 taps are indeed getting nearer.

Near the end of January, the Charleston City Paper profiled the spot's menu and interior. The restaurant is still saying they're coming "soon."
