The Charleston Restaurant Association and Charleston South Carolina area beer distributors are preparing for the first ever Charleston Craft Beer Week, which will take place April 22 – 29.

Patrick Collins, President of local beer distributor, Lee Distributors said, “craft beer is in high demand in Charleston, there will be something for everyone, from pub crawls to high end beer dinners.”

Charleston Craft Beer week kicks off with “Bark for Your Brew”, a dog friendly beer festival, which will take place at the Charleston Riverdog’s Stadium from 2pm until 5pm on Sunday, April 22. From Monday, April 23 through Saturday, April 28, events featuring craft beers will be held in dozens of restaurants and bars throughout the area. More than sixty events throughout the Charleston area will showcase the area’s vast selection of craft beers through beer tastings, beer dinners, film screenings, concerts and a Rare Beer Bar Crawl

Charleston Craft Beer Week concludes on Sunday, April 29 with The SweetWater Music Festival, an all-day craft beer and live music event featuring popular national and regional bands. The festival, hosted SweetWater Brewing Company, will take place at The Citadel’s Johnson Hagood Stadium from 11am until 8pm. The music lineup includes Rehab, Drivin’ N Cryin’, Eddie Bush, The Piedmont Boys, Homemade Wine and The Blue Dogs.  Just one week after their 8th annual SweetWater 420Festival in Atlanta, SweetWater Brewery representatives will be on site to host the event and serve up their lip-smackin’ lineup of brews.
