Charleston Beer Exchange News

This Tuesday at 5pm Charleston Beer Exchange will be tapping a very special Bourbon-Oak-Aged CASK (firkin) of Terrapin Side Project 10: Capt'n Krunkles Black IPA for growler fills! 

There is no other mention of this beer on any of the beer websites, so it is obviously extremely rare and possibly a one-off cask! Get on down and get a growler of it! 

If you are not familiar, real cask ale is beer in its purest form: keg conditioned without force carbonation, filtering or processing. They tap it with a spigot and let gravity do its work. 

The flavors, aromas and texture are especially beautiful and unique. It is highly perishable and must be consumed the same day so plan accordingly! 

These growlers will be limited, first come-first serve so don't miss out!

Rare Beer Tuesday

Today is a  very special "Rare Beer Tuesday" event  with RJ Rockers Brewing Company from Spartanburg, South Carolina!  Mark Johnsen, Brewer/President/Owner/Founder of RJ Rockers will be in store to offer up growler fills of two of his latest and most limited creations: Rock Hopper IPA and Fish Paralyzer Belgian-Style Pale Ale! I can personally vouch for these excellent beers, having drunk both of them at EVO's R.J. Rockers Beer Dinner last evening!

Mark will be talking shop about his beers and anything else you care to ask.  He may even have some Rockers swag to giveaway!  These unique growler fills will be available at awesome prices so get down to CBX and load up!

Rockhopper IPA
This ninety minute west coast-style IPA has nine hop additions of Warrior and Amarillo and comes in at a solid 90 IBUs. A smooth, super-citrusy IPA for the hophead in all of us!
7.5% ABV

Fish Paralyzer
This Belgian-style Pale Ale is moderately hopped with Tradition and Sazz and loaded with specialty malt to produce its sweetness and rich copper color. The strong Belgian essence of spicy flavors and aromas make this a truly unique drinking experience!

Rare Beer Tuesday from CBX

This just in from the boys at CBX...


Here's the latest update on all the exciting happenings at The Charleston Beer Exchange:

Rare Beer Tuesday (2/2)
Tomorrow is Tuesday again and for this week's Rare Beer Tuesday we will be filling growlers of Great Divide Hoss Rye Lager starting at 5pm!  No bottles of this beer came to SC and we were lucky to snag this keg.  Come on down and try it out!  This is an affordable one!
Commercial Description:  "Hoss is based on the Märzen lagers of Germany. Rich, layered malt notes, with some hints of cherry and dark notes, dominate while the unique addition of rye imparts a slightly earthy, spicy character. Hoss finishes crisp and dry, and its brilliant red-orange color is a toast to the late-summer sunsets that make the perfect backdrop for this beer."

Charleston Brewvival (2/27)
Don't forget to get your tickets for our exciting craft beer festival coming up February 27th in North Charleston!  Go to CharlestonBrewvival.com for all the info.  The brewery/beer list keeps getting better and better!  Please follow Brewvival on Facebook and Twitter for real-time news and updates!

Rare Beer Tuesday, Charleston Beer Exchange

As you may have heard, the new 2010 Sierra Nevada Bigfoot Barleywine just arrived in stock at CBX. 

Both bottles and growlers are available now! 

To celebrate the once a year release of an all time favorite, we thought we'd bring out a vintage keg of last year's Bigfoot, 2009, for this "Rare Beer Tuesday" feature!  Bigfoot is one of the most popular beers to age and this will be a great opportunity to see how the 2009 is coming along! 

Unlike some of our other Tuesday features, this one is quite a bargain, especially at 9.6% ABV!  Both the 2010 and 2009 will be available simultaneously so if you really want to have fun try a growler of both!

Rare Beer Tuesday at The Charleston Beer Exchange!

Rare Beer Tuesday (1/5)
As we do every Tuesday at 5pm, we'll be tapping something extra special on the growler station!  Our feature this week is Terrapin The Dark Side.  This is #9 in their Side Project series and is an 8.5% ABV Belgian Style Imperial Stout!  Here's the Commercial Description:
"Terrapin Side Project #9: The Dark Side, a Belgian Style Imperial Stout. Come on over to "The Dark Side" for the latest brew in the Terrapin "Side Project" series. Brewed with evil intentions, this Belgian Style Imperial Stout is made with copious amounts of dark grains that make this beer as dark as the underside of Vader's cape. "The Dark Side" is fermented with a unique Belgian yeast strain which sets this Imperial Stout light years ahead of its time."

Don't be afraid of the cold!  Come on out and get warmed up by a growler of this wonderful beer!
