Charleston Beer Week’s Thursday Schedule

Published

4728429.webTime is flying – we’re already on the backend of Charleston Beer Week! Thursday is Day 5 of the seven-day celebration.

There are once again six events to choose from, but this time most will not require a ticket.

This was easily the hardest day for me to pick a favorite event, because I would have a blast doing any of them. Lately, I’ve been diggin barrel-aged brews, so after some internal debate I chose Barrel-Aged Bonanza at Close For Business. With more than 10 options to choose from, I would be in barrel-aged heaven.

As you already know, I’m a sucker for all things Charleston, so I also recommend the Local Beer Blowout at Kudu Coffee & Craft Beer.

Here’s a look at Wednesday’s full schedule:

  • 5 pm  Barrel-Aged Bonanza – Closed for Business
    • C4B will have a dozen seriously rare, barrel-aged beers on tap
