Edmund’s Oast Brewing Co.—the New Production Brewery, Taproom and Restaurant—Opens in Charleston, SC
CHARLESTON, SC – September 18, 2017–Edmund’s Oast’s new production brewery, taproom, and restaurant–Edmund’s Oast Brewing Co. (EOBC)—officially opened in Charleston, SC. Located in the Pacific Box & Crate development at 1505 King Street Extension, EOBC is less than a mile from Edmund’s Oast restaurant and the newly opened Edmund’s Oast Exchange.
The 20,000 square foot brewery will produce a variety of beers packaged in cans, bottles, and kegs for wide-reaching wholesale. Once in full operation, the brewery will sport over a dozen EOBC beers on tap and regularly can a number of offerings. Brewing Director Cameron Read will produce an array of beers for both immediate consumption and barrel-aging. The facility includes an area dedicated to extended non-sour or wild barrel-aging, and a sealed area for sour and wild fermentation. EOBC beers will be available at the Edmund’s Oast restaurant, as well as other restaurants and bars in Charleston and beyond. For the opening, featured beers include Coin Operated, a Grisette, or Belgian-golden table beer (3.7% AbV), Hush That Fuss, a hoppy American Wheat (4.7% AbV), and Comfy Arm Chair, an English-style Session Brown (3.5% AbV).
Edmund’s Oast veteran chefs Geoff Marquardt and Johnny Singleton oversee the kitchen, which features a wood-fired brick oven and a Polish smokehouse. The food is casual and approachable—with selections including pizza, sandwiches, and entrees. Some opening menu highlights include Pork & Peanut Stew, Homemade Hot Dogs, and Chorizo & Peach Pizza.
The Taproom’s interior sports a 65-foot bar featuring 26 taps of house-brewed beers, wines, and cocktails. There is patio seating overlooking the courtyard and neighboring businesses. The venue is available to rent for special events. The taproom management team, led by Devin Marquardt and Jen Eppich, offers a variety of programming for guests to enjoy including weekly trivia, live music, sports, family friendly events, charitable fundraisers, pop-ups and more.
“It is with great anticipation that we are opening the Brewing Co.’s doors today,” stated Scott Shor, Operating Partner. “Our team has worked extremely hard over the last year and a half to make this dream a reality. Having the production brewery join the newly opened Exchange and original restaurant completes our vision to offer a totally immersive beverage and culinary experience in Charleston.”
