Wanted to let folks know the good people over at Charleston Pub Stroll are putting on a St. Patrick’s Pub Tour.
Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day in historic Charleston! Stroll with our group through the historic streets while we regale you with unusual – but true – stories of the city’s past. Be entertained by your 18th Century dressed historian/guide, as you hear tales of early drinking habits, Prohibition-era criminals, and other historical oddities of which even locals seldom speak. Guests of appropriate age will have the opportunity to enjoy libations at several (3 to 5) of Charleston’s most historic taverns. Tour lasts approximately 3 hours. Ticket does not cover your food and drink expenses.
WHEN: Saturday, March 17, 2PM – 5PM
WHERE: Meet at Washington Square Park (78 Broad Street) by 1:45PM
RESERVATIONS: Online (www.PubStroll.com) or call (843)345-9714
TICKETS: $16.00 online (www.PubStroll.com) or $18.00 in person.
NOTE: This is an event open to all and not an official Charleston BrewCrew Event.
The Charleston historic pub stroll went off without a hitch last night. The turnout was unusually low for a CBC event. There were only 8 that attended, a far cry from even the low number of 15 that had ‘accepted’ the evite.
What appeared to be a negative, quickly was realized as a positive. Our size was ideal for the tour guide to delve deeper into detail and at certain points of the tour give us an option of two destinations to choose from. He was knowledgeable of the background on each, but allowing us to choose made sure we were getting the best experience we could have.
We visited Bootleggers, Tommy Condons, The Griffon, Charleston Beer Exchange and The Blind Tiger. Some of the pubs we heard history on were no longer standing, but nonetheless there story was equally impressive.

Thanks to Alan for being our tour guide and thanks to all that showed up to make the event happen. Good times!
