Just because Brewvival is over doesn't mean the celebration of craft beer has to come to a grinding halt. On the contrary, in fact.
On Tuesday, February 28, the Charleston Beer Exchange is tapping a keg of Ballast Point Bourbon Barrel Aged Piper Down Scottish Ale. This Scottish Ale was matured for over 5 months in Heaven Hill and Old Fitzgerald barrels to create delicious notes of oak, vanilla and all around bourbony deliciousness. Due to the extremely limited nature of this beer, CBX will only be offering it in 32 ounce fills and may limit it to one per person. The keg gets tapped at 5 p.m.
On Thursday, March 1, from 5 to 7 p.m., CBX will play host to a Widmer Brewer meet and greet, free tasting and glass giveaway. Ben Dobler, a head brewer from Widmer Brothers, and Sales Manager Chris Squire to CBX will be on hand for the event. On tap for tasting and growler fills will be 2011 Barrel Aged Brrrbon, Lemongrass Wheat (brewed with Muscat), and Spiced IPA
Finally, on Saturday afternoon, Ted's Butcherblock is holding the TedFiesta Annual Locals Block Party. From 12 to 5 p.m., hang out at one of the tastiest spots in town and enjoy great food, craft beer and live music by local favorites, The Bushels. On the menu this year: A carnitas taco bar, accompanied by tamales and sides for just $12/plate. They'll be pouring craft beer for $4, or try your luck with "Crap or Craft" mystery beers for $3. There will even be a pinata raffle to benefit charity.
