We like sharing our beer experiences with our pets (no, really, sometimes they sip from our pints. And that’s OK). So any place that lets us drink great beer while petting our pooch gets our paw of approval. With tons of beers on draft and rotating food trucks, The Barrel stands out in the sea of Charleston’s craft beer-themed restaurants and bars. The Barrel’s customer reviews are pretty stellar, but we like how everyone can agree on life’s two most important things: dogs and beer. We have yet to figure out if this place is feline friendly, but based on the general camaraderie between dog visitors, we’re pretty sure you should leave your cat and its leash at home.
