Get to know Charleston's beer brewers and brews

Beer. Who doesn't love a tasty brew? That said, know that Samantha Test has put together a nice little overview of who's brewing in Charleston.

Read more stories on this subject in our beer topic page.Sure, most know the local three: Palmetto Brewing Company, Coast Brewing Company, and Southend Brewery & Smokehouse, But Test's article isn't just a rundown of where you can get a pint, she offers a little background on who's making it and offers a little history on Palmetto Brewing's historic roots.

Go take a read over at Preview.

And, if you find you tastebuds wet for Charleston's local beer scene I'll point you to the Beer Exchange as a great spot to not only pickup Coast Brewing's elusive brews but also as a great spot to pick up special beers you won't find anywhere else around here.

Also worth a shout out is Charleston City Paper's Ballard Leseman, who's always writing about beer in Charleston.
