The Return of the Immortal Lobster with Slide Guitarist John Emil Saturday Feb 25

As it turns out the Immortal Lobster is truly immortal! We were a tad worried when their truck broke down and they had to cancel one of our events, but they are back in action and we were lucky enough to get them this Saturday night February 25 from 5 – 8pm. Saturday night we’ll also be enjoying the soothing sounds of John Emil, slide guitarist. And if you’ve got a sweet tooth Trolly Dolly Treats will be there as well. The forecast is for 80 degrees on Saturday, so come out for a relaxing night of food, music, beer and a game of cornhole.

Friday night February 24 we’ve got 2 Nixons serving up the tastiest ramen bowls you’ll ever have. Yum. Saturday February 25 from 12 – 4pm we’ll have Dave ‘n’ Dubs serving up delicious hotdogs. And Sunday February 26 we’ll have Grill Force One out from 12 – 3pm serving BBQ.

We have a few other upcoming events we hope to see you at. Saturday March 4th head brewer Matty will be bowling at the Big Lebrewski, part of the Charleston Wine and Food festival. We’ll also be at the Charleston Wine and Food festival on Sunday March 5th in the biergarten for the locals day in the culinary village. Come by and see us!

From the Brewhouse

We’ve got our new shiny 20 barrel fermenters online and we’ve filled the first one up with Publican. The 2nd one will be getting Drone. This will ensure we don’t run out of your favorites, and we should be able to distribute more to the local area.

We’ve got a new beer in the pipeline – our First Blood hefeweizen with blood oranges. During a Yelp event we held last summer this was the crowd choice of a new recipe we wanted to try. With the weather warming up this seems like the perfect time to try it out. It should be ready next week. We’re also getting ready to brew our cream ale. Another light option for the warmer weather.

Thanks for all your support!

This week we’re also brewing Bushfire Chipotle Amber. Head Brewer Matty has been busy de-seeding almost 2 pounds of dried chipotle peppers. Yeah, it’s glamorous work alright, but it’s worth it to see more of that smoky amber goodness in the taproom!

The next batch of Spilt Milk milk stout is being kegged this week. This has been a huge hit in the taproom, and we’re thinking about possibly distributing some of it if we have enough to go around.

Next we’re brewing another batch of Liquid Lunch Pale Ale.

Keep Calm and Saison Back On Tap, Plus Brewery Happenings


Keep Calm and Saison! Back on tap this week…

Please everyone, just Keep Calm… And Saison! Because it’s back on tap this week. We know a small panic ensued when we kicked the last keg in the taproom, but Head Brewer Matty has sorted us out with a new batch of this much beloved beer.

This French farmhouse/saison ale is dry, fruity and peppery with a pale straw-colored haze and billowy head when poured. Saison (pronounced say-zohn) is French for “season”. This farmhouse style of beer was historically brewed in the winter months when temperatures were lower and more favorable for fermentation and then consumed by farmhands in the hot summer months. With modern equipment we can brew this style any season we want, so you can drink it anytime you need a break from your own farm(yard) work. 6% ABV, 3.9 SRM, 26 IBU

In the taproom

It’s a great week to drink beer! Here’s the line up of events for the week:

Tuesday 11/8: Election night. Beers will be needed. The end.

Thursday 11/10: The taproom will be closed, however we’re hosting a tap takeover at House of Brews so come join us and get your Two Blokes fix over there! Rolled Quesadillas will also be at HOB. They’ll be pouring our Drone Honey Rye IPA, Bushfire Chipotle Amber, Saison, and Black Ryed IPA.

Friday 11/11: Firkin Friday!!!  Cask conditioned Honey Rye IPA on pineapple. Also, band Bungled and Botched acoustic Americana will be in the tap room. And La Morra Pizzeria will be there from 5-8pm

Saturday 11/12: Rolled Quesadillas 4 – 8pm and Trolly Dolly Treats 5-8pm

Sunday 11/13: Barefoot Yoga at the brewery 10:30 – 11:30am.

From the brewhouse

Lots of brewing going on this week! Brewing the Spilt Milk milk stout on Tuesday. The ever popular Saison is back on tap. The double batch of Drone is kegged. Thursday and Friday Matty will be brewing a double batch of the Publican English-style pub ale. And we’ve finally received all the ingredients that we need to brew our Captain Bligh – a big porter with coconut, vanilla beans, and cocoa nibs – we’re hoping this will be ready for the holidays.

Two new firkins are coming up this month for Firkin Friday – Drone Honey Rye IPA with Pineapple on Friday, November 11. And Keep Calm and Saison with Strawberries on Friday, November 18.

New Beer – Liquid Lunch with Citra, and Happenings


Head brewer Matty scored some Citra hops and we’re so glad he did, because we’ve just put on tap our Liquid Lunch Pale Ale with Citra!

This West-Coast style Pale Ale is easy drinking. It’s citrus forward, and the low ABV makes this a sessionable choice, especially if you’re nipping out of work for a pint at lunch. Shh… we won’t tell… This batch is dry-hopped with Citra and Cascade which gives it tropical fruit, spicy, floral and grapefruit notes. 5.4% ABV, 7 SRM, 36 IBU

In the taproom:

Thursday 10/19 Thirsty Thursday with Rolled Quesadillas Food Truck 5 – 8pm. Because the only thing better than beer on Thursday is beer and quesadillas on Thursday. And guacamole. Always guacamole.

Friday 10/20 – Roadside Seafood food truck at Two Blokes 5 – 8pm! Their She-Crab Soup was Named “One of the city’s best bowls…” by Post and Courier food critic Hanna Raskin.

Saturday 10/21 Pigman Goods Hot Dogs will be here for lunch and early dinner 1 – 6pm. We can’t wait to try the Kimchi Dog!

Sunday 10/22 – Barefoot in the Brewery Yoga 10:30 – 11:30am. Yoga is changing to Sunday for the month of October. Come for the yoga, namaste for the beer!

Yoga will be followed by… Sunday Pizza, Football and Beer – 12 – 6pm. We’ll have football on, La Morra Pizzeria will be slinging the tastiest of pizza pies, and the beer will be flowing!

New beer on tap – Red Stapler, and first Firkin Friday

After a brief intermission from Hurricane Matthew, we’re back in business. And we’ve released a new beer – our Red Stapler Red IPA.

Hop heads will love this full-bodied red IPA brewed with Munich and biscuit malts, which give it a deep ruby color and bready nose. Hopped with Northern Brewer, Magnum, and Centennial hops, it has a resinous flavor and lingering bitterness. This is Drone’s big brother. Job got you down? Red Stapler will get you through! “Excuse me, I believe you have my stapler…” 7.5% ABV, 18 SRM, 88 IBU

In the taproom:

Friday 10/14 our first Firkin Friday kicks off with a cask conditioned Spilt Milk Stout with raspberries and white chocolate. Yum! 2 Nixons will be there as well doing their amazing pop-up Japanese yakitori and/or ramen.

Saturday 10/15 – Food Box food truck at Two Blokes 5 – 8pm!

Sunday 10/16 – Barefoot in the Brewery Yoga 10:30 – 11:30am. Yoga is changing to Sunday for the month of October. Come for the yoga, namaste for the beer!

From the brewhouse:

After a shut down courtesy of Hurricane Matthew we’re ramping up production again. We did have some electrical issues due to power surges and 2 of our 3 phases of power going down. But after some repairs we’re back up and running, and other than losing a week of production time we’re none the worse for wear.

New on tap – Matty’s tapping the firkin of Spilt Milk stout with raspberries and white chocolate on Friday!!! Red stapler red IPA is now on tap.

In the fermentersLiquid Lunch pale ale should be kegged at the end of this week or over the weekend so it will be back on tap very soon. Midnight Ryed Black Rye IPA will also be ready to be kegged very soon and will be back on tap shortly.

Next up –  brewing a double batch of Drone honey rye IPA. Keep Calm and Saison French farmhouse ale will be rebrewed in the next few weeks. Then Who’s Ya’ Crandaddy Cranberry Wheat will be next up as soon as we see cranberries in season!

New beer on tap – Spilt Milk Stout

Today we’re releasing a new beer – our Spilt Milk stout. As we head into fall and cooler weather starts to arrive we begin to crave darker beers, and this milk stout is just the ticket. Milk stout, sometimes called ‘cream’ or ‘sweet’ stout, is a stout containing lactose, a sugar derived from milk. Lactose is unfermentable by beer yeast, so it adds sweetness and body to the finished beer. In the early 1900s milk stouts were considered nutritious and recommended to expecting and nursing mothers. Our take on this classic style has big roasted barley flavor on the front end and balanced sweetness on the backend. 5.6% ABV, 35 SRM, 25 IBUs. Come try a pint!

In the taproom:

Saturday 9/24 – the return of the Immortal Lobster food truck, 5 – 8pm!

Sunday 9/25 – Pizza, beer and football! La Morra Pizza is here for lunch 12 – 5pm.

Friday 9/30 – King of Pops will be on site to do a Beer-sicle tasting with a popsicle made with Two Blokes beer! 5 – 7pm. They’ll also do some beer and popsicle pairings. We’ll be selling their popsicles in the taproom going forward. Also on deck that night, Hot Links handmade sausages food truck 5 – 8pm. And Trolly Dolly Treats will be serving up their sweet baked goods 5 – 8pm.

Saturday 10/1 –  Caribbean Creole food truck 5 – 8pm. Acoustic music with Dan Wright and Whitt Algar from local and regional acts Gaslight Street, Crowfield, and more.

Sunday 10/2 – Yoga 10:30 – 11:30am. Yoga is changing to Sunday for the month of October.

From the brewhouse:

Rumor has it head brewer and owner Matty did a firkin of the Spilt Milk stout with raspberries and white chocolate!!! We’ll be cracking into that in a few weeks on our first of many Firkin Fridays. You won’t want to miss it so keep an eye out here or on Facebook for the date.

In the fermenters – Red Stapler red IPA is almost ready so should be going on tap soon. The double batch of Publican English-style pub ale is being kegged we’ll be sending it out for distribution so keep an eye out for it around town. Matty brewed another batch of the Liquid Lunch pale ale this week so never fear, it should be back on tap in a few weeks.

Next up – brewing Midnight Ryed Black Rye IPA, which just kicked in the taproom, another batch of Keep Calm and Saison French farmhouse ale, and a double batch of Drone honey rye IPA. Matty’s also getting prepped for some fall seasonals such as our Who’s Ya’ Crandaddy Cranberry Wheat. Stay tuned for more details!
