I had some time off before I started my new job over the Summer, so Val and I hopped a quick flight to Charleston. We had previously been to Charleston on a day trip and loved it. We especially loved this restaurant Edmund’s Oast. We basically planned a trip to Charleston on going to this restaurant, so it was our first stop for dinner on the trip. They also make beer now, which made it even better.
Style: American Blonde Ale
Trivia: According to the restaurant’s website, “Edmund’s Oast is a restaurant like no other, because it’s so much more – a unique combination of brewery, seasonally-focused kitchen, and encyclopedic bar program. Scott Shor had the vision to bring these often-singular pursuits under one roof without sacrificing an inch of quality among them. The restaurant offers an elevated but approachable menu, providing guests a warm and exciting dining experience. Executive Chef Bob Cook’s distinctively dynamic menu includes bar snacks, house made charcuterie, small plates, heartier entrees, and classic desserts with a contemporary spin. The food is authentic without pretention, delivering an extraordinary dining experience inspired by the beverages featured on the menu.”
Random: Unfortunately, the restaurant was not nearly as good as I remembered it.
The beer poured with a one finger, pure white head. It dissipated at a moderate pace and left some lacing on the glass. The body was only slightly hazy and bright yellow in color. There was a nice amount of carbonation visible. The nose had some grain along with a touch of honey sweetness. The taste was light and crisp with some milled grain, barley and a slight floral honey sweetness. The body was light with lots of carbonation. It had a quick and sweet finish. This was a nice beer for a Summer in the South. I would give this one a shot again, for sure.
