Tideland Brewing debuts on Saturday, March 27 | Tideland Instagram

Tideland Brewing will officially open its doors in North Charleston at 4155 Dorchester Road on Saturday, when the brewery will host a social-distanced grand opening party with live music. The brewery is starting out with 13 different beers, with options like sours, four IPAs, an apricot blonde ale, an imperial stout and more, owner Hunter Eisele told the City Paper Thursday. 

“It’s great to finally be finishing up,” Eisele said. “COVID set us back, but it was good to take the time to get everything right.” 

Eisele acquired the Dorchester Road property, which was previously occupied by Holy City Brewing, in January 2020, and construction delays caused Eisele to push back the brewery’s opening date. But with a new sprawling indoor bar, floors, bathrooms and a 5,000-square-foot outdoor biergarten, Tideland patrons who frequented the old Holy City Brewing will hardly recognize the space.

“We did a complete renovation on the inside,” said Eisele, calling the space “a nice, clean environment” with brand new indoor and outdoor bathrooms.  

In the kitchen, chef Matt Canter, who most recently served as executive chef at The Establishment, will serve a “variety of appetizers and really good sandwiches,” Eisele said. Look for poutine, soft pretzels, a Tideland burger, a fried chicken sandwich, a steak sandwich and more. 

Starting Saturday, Tideland Brewing will be open Wednesday-Sunday from 11 a.m.-11 p.m. For more information, visit tidelandbrewing.com.
