Charleston, SC 29401
(843) 577-9699
The latest brew-centric spot to hit the scene is raking in the raves, for their 48 rotating taps. Not just a place to tipple, the early word on the food at Craftsmen has been positive, too.

It's all about the bills and no-frills beer here. A favorite of the F&B crowd in town (including Sean Brock), even The Griffon calls themselves "unapologetically awesome." No one disagrees.
