Carolina craft beer will take center stage at the seventh annual Charleston Beer Garden. Almost 30 breweries from North and South Carolina will serve dozens of craft beers, including IPAs, stouts, reds and ciders.
Throughout the day, festival-goers will enjoy vendors, food trucks and can join in the Beer Games with arm-wrestling, pony hops, hands-free pizza eating, cornhole, keg tossing and much more. A crowd favorite is the Homebrewers’ Village, featuring a wide selection of homebrewers from Charleston offering samples of their homebrews.
Headlining the festival entertainment is Charleston favorite The Dubplates, whose latest album “Box Full of Steel” topped the Billboard charts as the No. 1 reggae album. Opening for The Dubplates is roots rock band Sol Driven Train, another fan favorite in the Lowcountry.
