The crew at Charleston Beer Exchange always brings in some nice brews for Rare Beer Tuesday, but this Tuesday at 5pm they are featuring two especially exciting and sought-after varieties from San Diego's Ballast Point Brewing guaranteed to make your NYE extra fancy.
From their blog:
Our feature this week is a sensational double header from Ballast Point Brewing Company: Sculpin IPA (7% ABV) and Victory at Sea Coffee Vanilla Imperial Porter (10% ABV)! These are two of the most sought after beers in the world and always sell out fast. We don’t get them very often so this is a truly rare chance at these growlers. Please note there will be a one per person limit on Sculpin IPA growler fills.
Briefly, Sculpin IPA gets an A from BeerAdvocate, but more importantly is in the top 15 in their listing of the Top Beers on Planet Earth. It also has a perfect 100 from Ratebeer. Victory at Sea takes the still very respectable #91 spot in Top Beers on Planet Earth listing, also has an A from BeerAdvocate, and a near-perfect 99 from Ratebeer.
Folks, beer just doesn't get much better than this. Don't sleep on this one.
The Charleston Beer Exchange can be found at 14 Exchange Street downtown.
