Crafty Draught Coming to Mt. Pleasant!

 The Charleston craft beer scene just keeps on a growin'!  I was pumped when I heard about the new brewery (Freehouse Brewery) set to open in the near future.  And now, If you haven't already heard, an establishment called "Crafty Draught" will be opening at 1965 Riviera Drive in Mt. Pleasant.  If you are not sure where that is, it's in the Seaside Farms Shopping Center on the  IOP Connector.  Who has two thumbs and loves new places to get good craft beer....this guy.   Last weekend, I was fortunate to get a chance to speak with one of the owners (Gary) to get the low down on what we can expect from this new craft beer establishment.

Crafty Draught was started up by 5 guys who love craft beer.  They opened their first store in Cumming, GA, then another in Alpharetta, GA, and now they are about to open in December in our beloved Mt. Pleasant. Winning!!! Their mission "is to provide north metro Atlanta (substitute Mt. Pleasant) with the finest beer available, on tap, to go! With 20 rotating taps, pouring the freshest draught beer available in GROWLERS, to go, Crafty Draught is able to provide quality craft beer that everyone will enjoy. If you haven't found a beer you like, you haven't tried enough."

Their grand opening, which is currently targeted for December 7th, "will include local and national brewery reps, free beer swag raffle drawings, beer flights, pints, good vibe music, food truck, cornhole tournament, and awesome brew!!!"  Specifically, I was told that there will be Terrapin reps, and they will bring 4 of their tasty beers.   They are trying to work out other surprises as well, to make it a kick @$$ grand opening.  Well this certainly sounds like a good time to me!  Whose coming with me???

Other tidbits I picked up from talking to Gary:

1) There will be plenty of local beer flowing from their taps
2) Expect monthly tap takeovers
3) Expect them to have many beers on tap that you can't buy on the shelf (keg only beers/rare beers)
4) In addition to being able to fill your growlers to go, they will also have a bar for onsite consumption (nothing like stopping in for a pint or two and filling a growler to go)
5) They are working on collaborating with a local brewery (I'm not gonna reveal which one) on a possible collaboration beer (think CBX and Westbrook's Citrus Ninja)

When I get any other information, I will be sure to provide an update.  Stay up to date on them by liking their facebook page (click here)
