It’s Father’s Day this weekend, so here are some beer-drinking options you can take your dad to. Or, if you’re a dad, here are some beer-drinking options you can make your kids take you to. Either way, it’s a win-win for all involved.


It’s not actually taking place in Charleston, but a Battle of the Breweries is going down in Columbia at Craft and Draft featuring Freehouse Brewery. It’s taking on Charlotte’s Olde Mecklenburg Brewery in a head-to-head North vs. South Carolina face-off. Each brewery is bringing six of their beers, and whichever sells the most pints wins.


Itinerant Literate is bringing its pop-up bookstore to Frothy Beard from 3-9 p.m. for Brews & Books in the beer garden.

Tyler Boone, who was voted runner-up by readers in City Paper’s best musician category this year, will play live and for free on the Freehouse Brewery deck from 6-9 p.m. Dave ‘N’ Dubs food truck will also be there serving up hot dogs.


Edmunds Oast is hosting the American Made Market from 1-8 p.m., which will feature a wide variety of brands and artists selling their goods made only in the USA. The Bower bar will be open, there will be live music from The Hadley’s, and food from Short Grain from 1-4 p.m. and Dough Boyz Pizza from 4-8 p.m.

Tradesman, Frothy Beard, Low Tide, and Holy City will all be aboard the Float Into Summer Beer Cruise in the Charleston Harbor from 6-9 p.m. Tickets to board the beer boat are $50.


It’s Father’s Day and Dad deserves a free beer. So take him to Bay Street Biergarten for brunch, where the first draft is on the house.

The RiverDogs take on the Columbia Fireflies (now featuring Tim Tebow!) at 1:05 p.m. While this isn’t specifically a beer event, it is an opportunity to combine two things dads love: baseball and beer.
