Low Tide Brewing

Craft malt movement arrives in Charleston, adding ‘Carolina flavor’ to area breweries

Among the lengths its owners have gone to source local ingredients, they once asked a group of kayakers about the succulent-looking thing they were snacking on. The sea-beans collected at a nearby marsh were later added to a sour beer.
