Having re-fueled with oysters, our next stop on the Charleston food and drink trip was the Palmetto Brewery. The oldest brewery in South Carolina, Palmetto has a tap room where beer enthusiasts can sample their brews, listen to live music, and hang out.

For the next stop on the Official Unofficial NYC Brewery Tour, we head a few blocks down from Five Borough Brewing Co. to Industry City.
