Every August I keep saying this has to be the last year in this hot warehouse without a proper tasting room setup. I am really hoping it comes true this time.
We are still not yet able to take full advantage of the new law because we are unable to meet the DHEC prep area requirements at this time. We just don’t have the space to fit it in our production area. After all, we’re here to make beer. When we got this space in ’07 we weren’t even allowed to have people in the brewery let alone have a taproom. We hope to remedy all of this when we eventually build the addition.
The expansion is going well. All tanks should be filled by weeks end. You’ll start to see more seasonals coming, starting this week with Boy King. You are already seeing us at many new accounts from restaurants and bars to bottle shops and grocery. If you don’t see COAST at your favorite place, ask them to carry it or send them our way. We really thank you for your patience and we hope the wait was worth it.
The Boy King Double IPA will be released beginning Thursday, 8/7. Pints, bottles and growlers will be available as well as a cask! It’s been a while since we had time to devote to cask beer. We’re back at it and you’ll start seeing more of these. As always, served on our trusty beer engine here at the COAST.
