The Times They Are A Changin’

It’s Tuesday and well for those of us that live in South Carolina the tasting law was passed yesterday.  So what does that mean?  Well, for starters your local breweries can now start to have tours and sell beer on premises.  That’s not saying that you can buy a whole bunch or get a discount.  On the Coast Brewery blog it says that you can buy one case per person per day.  And that by law they are required to sell the beer at retail price.  For the stores like The Charleston Beer Exchange things are better then they used to be but they’ll still be getting a ton of questions from the public.  It’s not going to be try anything you want on the growler station time.  Which most people including myself were hoping for.  What it does mean and I’m not completely clear on it but stores such as The Beer Exchange can have tastings.  The tastings will be limited on the amount of alcohol that can be opened and served.  I’m thinking this will probably go by monthly basis but again I’m not completely sure on all the logistics of the law.

As far as my own beer tastings concern well I’ve been slightly busy and all but here is a list of some of the tasty brews that are coming up.

Oskar Blues: Gordon, Ten Fidy

Smuttynose: Shoals Pale Ale, IPA

Mikkeller: I Beat You IPA, Beer Geek Breakfast

And many more.  Most notably my first beer.
