What’s better than a nice cold brew after a fun day in Myrtle Beach?

Bottoms up!

5 Pubs to Visit for Myrtle Beach Brews

Hit one of these every night of your stay for what could be considered the perfect week.

Gordon Biersch Brewery Restaurant

This well-known, casual chain delights with house-brewed, German-style beer. You’re in for a delicious meal and unforgettable beer in a spot you’ll want to make part of every Myrtle Beach visit. Every location has a unique set of drafts brewed on site to enjoy.

WE RECOMMEND: Hefeweizen (5.3% ABV)

This full-bodied selection is an unfiltered Bavarian-style wheat. The yeast conveys notes of fruit (banana) and spice (clove overtones.)

VISIT GORDON BIERSCH

Tidal Creek Brewery

At Market Common, it’s a spot for the grown-ups to relax and the kids to play. Besides great beer, you’ll enjoy such yummy selections as the Angus Burger and Crabby Taters, too. They specialize in small-batch, specialty craft beer, fresh-brewed coffee, and Low country cuisine. 

WE RECOMMEND: Breezy Blonde (5.3% ABV)

A golden appearance, clear and pale, with floral citrus aroma. You’ll love the touch of spice and clean biscuit malt base and citrus/grapefruit hop balance.

Grand Strand Brewing

It’s a great spot for beer and friendly folks, right on the beach. What more could you want? Locals are regulars, and that’s a good sign. One look at the beer lineup and appetizers and you’ll know why. 

WE RECOMMEND: Sandy Cheeks (6.9% ABV)

Check this combination: Subtle sweetness, with hop bitterness and citrusy aromatics. Delicious.

Strong Waters Craft Cocktails and Kitchen

Transport yourself to Prohibition times, with locally sourced food and drinks. We’d be remiss not to mention the stellar Tenderloin and Bacon Mushroom Swiss Burger on the menu. Local ingredients ensure a farm-to-shaker experience with their lineup of unique cocktails, too.

WE RECOMMEND: Espresso Porter (6.0% ABV)

Accidental mixing of a porter and coffee created this Palmetto Brewing Company treat. Medium-bodied and not too heavy, it’s bold and sweet and is the beer of champions in the Low country.

This golden ale is light and refreshing, spicy with noble hops.
