Re: “Charleston Beer Exchange

Josh, are you serious? Please click these links and realize you're talking crazy talk, because ratings like this from visitors all over the country don't happen when people act like you're alleging they do. I've been going there for 3 years and have been treated excellently throughout my patronage, despite me being a relative beer newbie when I started shopping there. I have literally never, ever heard anyone with an opinion of CBX like yours. I'm very confused.

Hopturn - they have and do carry Holy City, just must not have been on tap when you visited?

Re: “Louis C.K. will perform in Charleston for two nights in October

Neither show is sold out. Both shows are pulling Orchestra Row Q for single tickets right now.

Re: “The quest for Charleston restaurant bathroom changing tables

And -- The Junction Kitchen & Provisions. Bathroom is unisex but there is a proper free-standing changing table in there, and wipes! And Ms. Pacman/Galaga for a quarter?? Fuggedaboutit...

Re: “The quest for Charleston restaurant bathroom changing tables

Big ups, Kinsey!

FWIW - you can add Charleston Harbor Fish House to the "Both Restrooms" list, although the bathrooms are shared with the larger complex so you'll be carrying your little one outside a bit. Maybe multiple times in a night...so I heard from a friend...

Re: “S.C. Brewers Guild director in D.C. to lobby for lower brewery taxes

@mat - A simple visit and conversation would reveal the info that they are in a growth mode.

A simple visit would not reveal the kind of in-depth cost analysis you're looking for.

Sorry if that wasn't clear. P.S. sweet moustache.

Re: “S.C. Brewers Guild director in D.C. to lobby for lower brewery taxes

"Would anyone care to actually do the math based on Pettigrew's numbers and figure out if brewers could actually afford to hire more people with lower taxes? Or, wait, is this about profit margins?"

The tax rates aren't "my numbers." They are the tax rates. Breweries have different costs of production based on where they are, how big they are, etc., and that cost is going to vary from batch-to-batch based on ingredients, packaging, etc. $5 is a common price for a pint in a brewery's taproom, but even that is not universal. It just helps illustrate that $0.13 isn't as paltry a sum as it might sound.

If your expectation was that, when asked for my opinion on Brook's efforts in DC yesterday, that I do a multi-week case-study on a specific beer in a specific brewery and break down all the costs involved, I'm sorry to disappoint you.

The reality is that ALL of the brewers in Charleston are in a growth mode. I won't link you to multiple articles about expansions, etc. A simple visit and conversation with any of them would reveal this info.

Here are some links that might help. I personally wouldn't trust anything called "Pettigrew's numbers" either. Sounds like a terrible prog rock band.
