Charleston Beer Week set for September

  • Monday, June 30, 2014

The second annual Charleston Beer Week will be held from Sept. 7-13 at venues throughout the greater Charleston area.

After a successful inaugural year in 2013, Charleston Beer Week is coming back to celebrate the area's burgeoning craft beer scene. Since the original event last April, two new production breweries have opened, as well as a brewpub and multiple retail stores and bars. South Carolina breweries have also won two legislative victories, with the so-called Pint Bill becoming law last summer, and the Stone Bill becoming law only recently.

Chrys Rynearson and Timmons Pettigrew from CHSBeer.org are acting as lead organizers this year, and have pushed the event back on the calendar from its original timeframe in April to the second week of September to better separate it from other high-profile craft beer events. This should allow for breweries, venues and customers to focus on Charleston Beer Week as a separate beer event in its own right. It also coincides with Charleston Restaurant Week and the newly formed Charleston Watersports Week, allowing visitors and residents with varied interests to taste more than just beer.

No official events have been announced yet for Charleston Beer Week 2014. Last year's events included a kickball tournament at Joe Riley Stadium, a bowling tournament at The Alley and an all-South Carolina beer tap takeover at Closed for Business featuring more than 40 beers made in the state. Events will be announced via the Charleston Beer Week website and social media channels.

Major sponsorship for Charleston Beer Week 2014 is provided by Total Wine and More and Kudu Coffee and Craft Beer. Inquiries about other sponsorship slots can be made through the Charleston Beer Week website.

Charleston Beer Week events will be held throughout Charleston, Mount Pleasant, North Charleston and Summerville. Visit www.charlestonbeerweek.com for event and sponsorship information.
