Rare Beer Tuesday (9/7)

We are using this week's "Rare Beer Tuesday" time-slot to give everyone advanced notice of our tapping of Ballast Point Sculpin IPA for growler fills starting tomorrow (Tuesday) at 5pm!  In the opinions of some, this is the greatest and most highly sought-after IPA that we get, and we rarely get enough of it to be able to announce its arrival, so here it is!  Don't miss out this time!

Rare Bomber Thursday (9/9)
For "Rare Bomber Thursday" this week, we are very proud to announce the South Carolina debut of Hopfenstark Brewery, brought to you exclusively by The Charleston Beer Exchange!  Hopfenstark hails from Quebec, Canada.  All Hopfenstark beers brought into the USA are draft-only, and are unbelievably uncommon to find on-tap anywhere!  This week's beer will be their amazingly rare "PostColonial IPA", which is a recreation of/homage to the beer that spawned the style "India Pale Ale"!  It comes in at 6.5% ABV and is reddish/orange in color with a subtle, floral hop aroma and well-balanced hop/malt flavor profile.  This will be available for sale in pre-filled 22oz bomber-style "growlers"starting Thursday, 9/9 at 5pm.  Click HERE for a reminder of how Rare Bomber Thursday works.

Rare Beer Tuesday, Rare Bomber Thursday and More!

Rare Beer Tuesday with Stillwater Artisan Ales! (6/17)
It's almost Tuesday, and you probably already know what that means: Something super rare and extraordinary goes on the growler station at 5pm!  This week, we take special delight in bringing you the area debut of Stillwater Artisinal Ales based out of Baltimore, Maryland.  But take the term "based" loosely as Brian Strumke, owner/brewer of Stillwater, is what some call a "Gypsy Brewer".  Much like another CBX favorite, Mikkeller, Brian travels the world expertly brewing unique, very small batch beers at the facilities of other breweries where he has established relationships.  Our featured Stillwater beer this week will be Brian's "Cellar Door", a wonderful take on the Farmhouse/Saison style.  We only have a small amount of Cellar Door so it won't last long.  If you would like to read Brian's description of his beer, click HERE

Rare Bomber Thursday with Oskar Blues! (6/19)
Our ultra limited, pre-filled 22oz bomber-style "growler" release this Thursday will be from Colorado favorite Oskar Blues!  For this special gem, Dale's Pale Ale was aged in Stranahan's Colorado Whiskey barrels giving wonderful notes of oak, vanilla, whiskey and maple.  This is a special and very rare experience, don't miss out!  Click HERE for a reminder of how Rare Bomber Thursday works.

Rare Beer Tuesday At The Charleston Beer Exchange

Hey Everybody!

We have an exciting week ahead at The Charleston Beer Exchange!  Check out all the latest, refreshing happenings:

Rare Beer Tuesday - Sour Power! (8/10)
Tuesdays at 5pm we tap something super-extra-special on our growler station.  This week we're calling all you sour-heads because we'll be bringing you a fantastic and unique sour beer that has never before been released on draft: Petrus Aged Pale Ale!  A long time favorite, this beer has been bottle only in the past and will continue to be so in the future.  This is a one time only release the brewery decided to offer to celebrate their 30th anniversary with style.  In our opinion, this special release draft version is remarkably more sour than the traditional bottled version which is unbelievably exciting!  This beer comes in at 7.3% ABV and is aged for over two years in oak allowing wild yeast and friends 

to produce striking tart notes with citrusy nuances that bring a crisp refreshing finish to this amazing beer.  More information on the beer here.

Highland Brewing Specials - Wednesday (8/11)
This Wednesday starting at 4pm, the boys from Highland Brewing will have Cattail Peak Organic Wheat Beer on our growler station along with some free Highland keychain-bottle openers and stickers with each growler fill purchase while supplies last!  They're also offering the very, very last of the extremely popular Cold Mountain 12 packs until winter!  Don't miss out!

Rare Bomber Thursday - Big Hops from The Bruery (8/12)
If you are not yet familiar with our new "Rare Bomber Thursday" program, please see our previous newsletter here.  This Thursday at 5pm we'll be offering pre-filled 22oz bomber-style "growlers" of The Bruery's Humulus Lager!  This highly limited, draft only beer is absolutely loaded with big, hoppy character and has rarely been seen in these parts!  Weighing in at 7.2%ABV, The Bruery calls this an India Pale Lager and says the lager yeast allows the hops to be in the forefront.  If you are a big IPA lover, do not miss this beer as it will amaze you!

wine tastingJoin us every Friday at Ted's for the best deal in town. Start with our Friday wine tastings--$5 for all tastings and gourmet hors d'oeuvres. Proceeds benefit our featured charity this quarter, Green Drinks Charleston.

Stick around for our steal of a deal, Ted's $12 dinner, featuring a restaurant-quality entree, sides and dessert prepared by Chef Eva. Check out our web site each Thursday for the $12 dinner menu. Enjoy a 10% discount on a glass or bottle of a featured wine to enjoy with your dinner.

Domaine de la Berthete "Sensation" Rose, $14 - Bright pink color packed w/ aromas of white peaches + berries. A well-balanced wine with soft minerality, sweetness, and good aromatic persistence. Will perfectly pair with hams, pizzas and summer barbecues. One of the best value priced Cotes du Rhone Rose in the market. A blend of 55% Cinsault, 25% Grenache, 15% Carignan and 5% Syrah

Ermita de Nieve Verdejo, $13 - A light to medium bodied white such as this is just the thing to drink when a chardonnay or a pinot grigio sounds too heavy or concentrated. That's not to say that this Spanish white lacks complexity! It's brimming with citrus + herbs, a touch of pineapple + lots of acidity, which makes it ideal with seafood.

Damilano Nebbiolo d' Alba, DOC, $18 - Made from the same grape as Barolo, this Italian red is a touch lighter and less complex, if more elegant and earlier maturing. It shares much the same flavor profile with it's siblings, though tends to be less intense. This is a fantastic wine for steak in the hot summer months.

Rememeber: We offer deals on bulk wine purchases!
