Tradesman Brewing is Coming!
The craft beer craze is slowly creeping its way onto James Island! In the past year, we’ve seen a craft beer bar open (Bohemian Bull) and another one on the way (The Barrel). This has left some wondering, when will JI get an equally badass brewery taboot?

The wifey and I hit up Octobachi Asian Gastropub this past weekend. It has been on my list for awhile to go and check out. Since we were in the area, we popped in for some dinner and beers. Since we had the little guy with us, we only had one each, but they were both damn good.

We’ve been sitting on a few beer reviews for a while now, and, in honor of Edmund’s Oast opening this Friday, we thought we’d break the fast with a review of Evil Twin’s Bozo Beer. Bozo Beer is a collaboration or at least was inspired by Rich and Scott of The Charleston Beer Exchange/Edmund’s Oast. In addition, it was brewed at our very own Westbrook Brewing Company. It’s a big @$$ Imperial Stout clocking in at 17.2% ABV. The label is Jeppe's classic triangular pixelated dude(s)-involved-in-the-brewing-process (and guess who this one features?). The myriad of ingredients/characteristics mentioned on the label is enough to send a chill through a Cicerone’s spine. They include molasses, lactose, chocolate, almond, hazelnut, vanilla bean, cinnamon, oak spiral, chili, marshmallow, muscovado sugar, chestnut, and coffee.

Last Wednesday, the Low Country Libations homebrew club held our monthly meeting at Freehouse Brewery in North Charleston. Freehouse is owned by Arthur Lucas, who was manning the tasting room on this particular evening. The location is real nice, as it is located on banks of the Ashley River. There is a nice deck for enjoying some beers and checking out the view of the river.
