Charleston, South Carolina
A rustic brewpub and brewery where world-class beer and chef-prepared bites converge in a surprisingly casual space What it is:
Edmund’s Oast is a brewpub that brews a selection of their own artisanal beers onsite, with a new brewery-only location down the road set to open June 2017. They have a rotating selection of beers on draft, both their own and from other breweries from all over the world, as well as special-format bottles. The farmto-table fare is artisanal and made to pair with beer.
Why it’s great:
Food this stunning is usually too difficult to eat, but once the aromas waft upward, it’s all over. The charcuterie is all done in-house, using artisanal cutting processes, aging, and smoking. They source ingredients locally and create virtually all dishes from scratch. Their house beers are eclectic, ranging from the amusing (Peanut Butter & Jelly, I’m Batman) to funky (Cararosa, Kvass) to everything in between. Their guest draft list tops forty and includes rare and sought-after beers. Special-format bottles are also on the menu, including a 3,000 ml bottle of Evil Twin Bozo Beer. The prices are average, and the atmosphere is casual (many people wear jeans). It’s a place where people who love excellent food and beer can come and find much to enjoy. —Libby Murphy
