The Beer from Here - New South Brewery

  By  Olivia Elswick

We love the taste of a great craft beer. In the summer months, nothing complements a day out in the sun better. Here in the Myrtle Beach area, we're fortunate to have a local brewery that is producing quality brews 365 days of year.

New South Brewery is definitely one of the Grand Strand's hidden gems.  And they've been doing it this way since 1998. Time to learn a little more about one of the Myrtle Beach area's true local treasures. Take a tour of New South Brewery, and give the nut brown ale a sip. It's everything you could want in a beer.

New South Brewing is the 2nd oldest brewery and the oldest brewer-owned brewery in South Carolina. Their flagship White Ale has been brewed for 20 years—long before Blue Moon and Shock Top.

Their Drink a Peach beer is new and it features peaches from South Carolina. Though Georgia is known as the “Peach State,” did you know that South Carolina actually produces more peaches?

If you’re a Star Wars fan you’ll enjoy the Java the Nut and Dark Star Porter, and the Star Wars décor throughout. The Force is strong in this brewery.

New South Brewing offers tours every Wednesday at 3 pm. The tour is just $7 and includes beer samples throughout the tour, a souvenir glass, and a full beer following the tour. This is such a great deal, and a great way to decide which cans you want to purchase to take home with you! Several varieties are available in cans to take away, and you can find New South in bars and restaurants throughout the Grand Strand.

New South also offers yoga every Sunday morning at 11 am. For $10 enjoy an hour session of yoga and a complimentary beer afterward. For this event, and many others, food trucks are on site! Follow their Facebook page to keep up with all of their upcoming events like beer releases and food and beer pairing dinners.\

Tuesday -  Friday: 4:30 - 7:00 p.m.
Saturday: 1 - 5 p.m.
Sunday: 12:30 - 4 p.m.
