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. Nestled between manufacturing businesses, this small operation has a four-person staff that is responsible for getting its delicious white ale, nut brown ale and other specialty beers into stores.

And if you want to see the magic behind the curtain, come out on Tuesdays or Thursdays at 3 p.m. and take a tour. Samples are also available.

Take time to be amazed by what could only be classified as a "tower of beer." Surprisingly, only one part of that statement is true. It is a tower comprised of over 120,000 beer cans. The only thing missing is the beer.

The cans are empty, and New South employees fill them full of frothy goodness before securing the tops.

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.
