Palmetto Beer: a more graceful way to get drunk

.

Although my husband’s hometown of Charleston, SC now features so many breweries that on a recent trip we found growlers and taps in a very sketchy mini-mart in a lousy part of town, the first of these is Palmetto Brewery. Who are they? Let them tell it in their own words:

.

“Palmetto Brewery first served Charleston’s thirst in the 1850′s. Brewed through the ‘War of Northern Aggression,’ the earthquake of 886, a major hurricane, and into the turn of the century, but failed to survive prohibition. We revived the tradition in 1993, becoming the first brewery to operate in South Carolina since Prohibition. Our beer is truly handcrafted in small batches in the historic city of Charleston.”

.

.

Unavailable outside of South Carolina, you’ll find it all over the place when you’re in Charleston. Fortunately for me, one of the founders of the brewery is a fan of Dirt Candy and a really good friend and Palmetto gave me a ton of their beer for the cookbook signing in Charleston.
