New Realm Brewing Company will serve craft beer and elevated pub fare | Provided

Atlanta-based New Realm Brewing Company will expand to the Lowcountry, where it will open its fourth location in the space currently occupied by Dockery’s. The 11,000-square-foot Island Park Drive brewpub will be rebranded as New Realm in May, a press release said. 

“Ever since we opened our Atlanta brewery and restaurant in 2018, we’ve been asked by our neighbors in South Carolina when New Realm beers would be available in the state,” New Realm co-founder Carey Falcone said in the release. “We are thrilled to announce that the time has come. We will continue to enhance the original Dockery’s vision of a destination that brings the community together through great food, great beer and great music.”  

Like Falcone alluded to, New Realm will continue the live music lineup that was championed by its predecessor. In addition, the brewpub will retain “approximately 100 local employees in the Charleston market,” according to the release. 

The South Carolina location will be New Realm’s fourth when it opens in May, joining a forthcoming restaurant/distillery in Savannah, flagship brewery/restaurant in Atlanta and production brewery/restaurant in Virginia Beach. 

Once open, look for an expansive selection of craft beers like New Realm’s Hazy Like a Fox IPA and United lager. For food, the restaurant will offer elevated pub fare, with options like burgers, mac and cheese and more.
