Updates are at the bottom:
We know that many MYR's seek out experiences in CHS, so we wanted to introduce you to a new beer resource to check out before you head down to the Holy City. Meet CHSBeer.org: brew-child of Charleston beer know-it-all Timmons Pettigrew and web-photo-video guru Chrys Rynearson.
The site aims to be a, "one-stop shop for locals and visitors to get a handle on all things beery in the Lowcountry."
Here's six things you can do with CHSBeer.
- 1: Keep up with area beer news on the blog.
- 2: Find beer events on the calendar.
- 3: Find places to buy and drink beer on the map.
- 4: From that map you can read about said places and leave feedback (What, no check-in feature?)
- 5: Read about and discover different local brews.
- 6: Find more excuses to drink local beer.
The site is new and pretty straightforward, so if you love beer and Charleston: go to CHSBeer.org
Disclaimer: Yes, Pettigrew is a regular contributor to TheDigitel Charleston. And if you think it's earned preferential treatment, know that you can contribute and edit all you like through the Open Community.
Update March 22: Been keeping up with CHSBeer.org? Good!
For those of you who haven't (or those of you who haven't today), we highly recommend popping over and checking out the first two installments to their Beerfolk video series. What is Beerfolk all about, you ask? Well, this, according to Timmons:
Our aim is to interview all the Beerfolk in town, helping to put faces and names to our craft beer-friendly Places, and giving you a chance to hear their approach in their own voice. This should also help you quickly pinpoint who to harass with unreasonable demands when visiting said Places.
The first two interviewees are brothers Ben and Aaron Lucas. Aaron is the Beverage Director at Closed for Business and Ben works there as a bartender.
**Keeping it MYR local, the fellows over at Myrtle Beach Beer Lovers have started a Kickstarter campaign to raise funds for the production of their MBBL TV program. Jump on over to get a full write-up of what they are looking to do.
