Hobcaw Brewing Co. now open in Mount Pleasant

Hobcaw Brewing Company is now open off Long Point Road in Mount Pleasant, welcoming visitors with six new beers on tap.

The opening of the new brewery, tucked toward the back of an office park at 496 Long Point Road, has been a long time in the making. When we last checked in with co-owners Tiffany and Chris Mottram, they’d hoped their team would start brewing in October 2019. Now, after a few snags and a global pandemic, Hobcaw is the latest member of the suburban brewery district, with Ghost Monkey, Two Blokes and Westbrook breweries also nearby.

“It was a very long road to get to this point, so to actually be open and see customers enjoying the space and beer still feels surreal. The support we received in our first week was overwhelming, especially considering the times we’re living in,” Chris said.

Hobcaw brewer Chris Percello was most recently head brewer at Right Proper Brewing Co. in Washington, D.C., named this week as Best Brewery/Brewpub by readers of Washington City Paper (no relation).

Hobcaw’s opening tap list includes New England and West Coast IPAs and a “hoppy session” beer along with a stout, Helles lager and a pale ale using the new Palmetto Malt Company’s South Carolina-grown grains.

Cooler weather combined with social distancing guidelines have made Hobcaw’s patio the place to be for families and those hunting for a brew outside, Mottram said.

“It was exactly what we envisioned when we first saw the property,” he said.
