FIRST SIP: SOUTHERN BARREL BREWING CO.
Down here in the Lowcountry, beer was, for many years, served in cans, bottles, on tap and in kegs just like every other part of the country. Beer in a can was referred to as a “cold beer” and the keg was the beverage of choice for many a shrimp boil and oyster roast. The old stand-bys were Pabst Blue Ribbon (PBR), Budweiser, Miller and Schlitz. The most exotic beer we saw was when someone drove back from a trip to Colorado and brought a case or so of Coors. Today you’ll find much more on tap when visiting Bluffton, South Carolina.
