Beresford Brown

American Brown

5.6%

ABV

23

IBU

You asked, we crafted. Here is the American Brown Ale ya'll have been asking for! This Brown Ale was created with mostly Maris Otter, some Two Row, and pinch of chocolate malt to create a smooth and surprisingly crisp beer. The Cascade hops add the right about of bitterness to round it all out.

Fun Fact:

Richard Beresford set aside a portion of his estate later known as the "Beresford Bounty". The trust was used to establish a free school for the poor of St. Thomas and St. Dennis parishes where his land grants were located.

The Beresford Bounty is still at work today and remains one of the longest-surviving unbroken trusts in the world.

Bottom Time

German Pilsner

5.4%

ABV

28

IBU

The core of this beer is our house lager strain. The grain bill is simple (as it should be), mostly pilsner malt with a touch a Victory. To round everything out we bittered with Magnum and added late additions of Hallertauer Mittlefrueh. Our cleanest, crispiest, most easy drinking beer yet!

Fun Fact:

Bottom time for a dive is the calculated from the start of descent to the start of ascent. Many divers will track their total bottom time over the course of all of their dives.

Butter Go Nuts

Peanut Butter Porter on Nitro

7.1%

ABV

68

IBU

Our peanut butter porter is full of peanut butter powder and cocoa nibs added during the boil and in secondary to give it a nice resemblance to a Reese Cup. If you like a punch of peanut butter to the nose, we recommend getting the beer served with regular beer gas. If you like your PB creamy, try it on nitro!

Fun Fact:

Archibutyrophobia (pronounced A'-ra-kid-bu-ti-ro-pho-bi-a) is the fear of getting peanut butter stuck to the roof of your mouth.

Drift Dive

Citra IPA

5.8%

ABV

63

IBU

A similar recipe we brewed for our wedding beer, this Citra IPA uses Nugget, Mosaic and, of course, Citra hops! A clean, crisp, West Coast IPA if that’s what you’re craving.

Fun Fact:

Drift diving is a type of scuba diving where the diver is transported by the water movement caused by the tide, an ocean current or in a river.

Goliath Grouper

Double IPA

8.7%

ABV

74

IBU

Hop forward with notes of citrus and pine from Amarillo and Centennial hops, this beer is more bitter than a standard IPA. Behind the hops, you'll notice light caramel and biscuit added by the grain to create this big, bold, West Coast double IPA.

Fun Fact:

A goliath grouper’s age can be estimated using annual growth rings in its dorsal fin rays, much like those found within tree trunks.

Hive Another

Honey Cream Ale

6.0%

ABV

13

IBU

We started homebrewing in Wisconsin so naturally we like our cream ales with a little more ABV than you might be used to. (Google “Wisconsin Cream Ale” if you aren’t sure what we are referencing). We rounded out this beer with 30 lbs of honey but don’t think you are about to drink a glass full of sweat honey nectar. Honey is a fermentable sugar so the yeast already ate most of it before it could get to your glass. What they left behind is pretty tasty though!

Fun Fact:

Honey never spoils! When stored in an airtight container, honey can have an eternal shelf-life.

Humuhumunukunukuapua'a (aka Triggerfish)

P.O.G. Kettle Sour

5.5%

ABV

6

IBU

This P.O.G. kettle sour (Passion fruit - Orange - Grapefruit) is as delicious as the Hawaiian juice puree added to it. Named after the Hawaiian state fish, one sip will make you feel like you're enjoying the pint on the beaches of Kona.

Fun Fact:

The "Milk caps" game other name Pogs, which became popular during the 1990s, originates from the Hawaiian juice POG. The use of POG bottle caps to play the game preceded the game's commercialization.

Night Dive

Milk Stout

6.7%

ABV

29

IBU

Silky-smooth, calming and refreshing with light roasty notes. We love the outcome of the 5+ hour boil, light carbonation, and lactose, which gives the beer a cream flavor and mouth feel, combination. It's so creamy and smooth you may even mistake this beer for a nitro!

Fun Fact:

Night diving is underwater diving done during the hours of darkness. The underwater environment is much different at night because many marine animals are nocturnal.

Ocean Gem

Juicy IPA

6.3%

ABV

49

IBU

We took the term Juicy IPA pretty literal with this beer by using Idaho Gem hops. Combined with the Mosaic hops, you'll notice fruit candy (like Juicy Fruit), citric grapefruit, and some mango on the nose and in the taste. We used flaked barley and oats to give the beer the right mouthfeel and added 55lb of wheat malt to make it hazy. Fermented out with London Fog yeast, it all comes together to make a delicious gem of a beer.

Fun Fact:

The South Carolina state gemstone is Amethyst. The word amethyst derives from Ancient Greek and means "not intoxicated." The ancient Greeks believed that the stone protected its owner from drunkenness and wore amethyst and carved drinking vessels from it in the belief that it would prevent intoxication.

Pearl Diver

Juicy Pale Ale

4.6%

ABV

46

IBU

Don't let the lower ABV of this beer fool you. It's packed full of flavor! Citra and Simcoe provide a juicy, citrus flavor and are preceded by Zeus as the bittering hop. Torrified wheat and flaked barley and oats during the mash give this beer a smooth mouthfeel and haziness, not unlike a hot summer day in which this beer will be best enjoyed!

Fun Fact:

Free-divers were often forced to descend to depths of over 100 feet on a single breath in order to find enough oyster pearls, making the job extremely dangerous.

Pink Ladyfish

Imperial IPA

7.6%

ABV

47

IBU

An Imperial Juicy IPA brewed by women on March 8th for International Women's Day to help raise the profile of women’s roles in the beer industry. The hops are a special blend created specifically for the 2021 Pink Boots Brew by Yakima Chief Hops and include Cashmere, Antanum, Citra, Loral, and Sabro. We love this blend and the way the tropical, herbal, citrus, and woody flavors and aromas come together to create a juicy, flavorful Imperial IPA.

Fun Fact:

$1 of every pint will be donated to Pink Boots Society for educational scholarships and programming. Yakima Chief Hops also donates $3 from every pound sold of the Pink Boots hop blend.

Razzle Mania

Raspberry Wheat

5.1%

ABV

15

IBU

Did you enjoy our Sheep for a Wheat Belgian Wheat and want to step it up a notch? Or maybe you're craving something fruity today? Either way, this beer is for you. We took our Belgian Wheat and added raspberry puree to give it a little razzle dazzle. Wine drinkers looking for a beer that's low on bitterness and has a hit of fruitiness - this beer's for you!

Fun Fact:

An average raspberry has 100 to 120 seeds.

Swim Through

Belgian Saison

7.2%

ABV

20

IBU

A Belgian Saison with an extra yeast strain to add complexity and a unique flavor. You'll notice earthy and fruity notes mixed with a peppery and spicy finish. We love the way the Belgian and California Ale yeasts play together to make a delicious beer you'll want more of after the first sip.

Fun Fact:

"Swim through" is a recreational open water diving term for arches and short, clear, tunnels where the light can be seen at the far end. Technically these create an overhead environment but there is no risk of getting lost inside and the risk of entrapment is low.

Wake Up Call

Coffee Blonde Ale

5.3%

ABV

18

IBU

Before coffee became widely available, beer was the popular breakfast drink of choice. We love both types of beverages so we decided to combine the two. Wake Up Call is our Shelly Beach Blonde Ale with coffee grounds from Charleston Coffee Roasters. We think it's the perfect brunch beer but really it can be enjoyed at any time of the day.

Fun Fact:

Coffee beans are only called 'beans' because of the resemblance - they’re actually berries.
