The Charleston Beer Exchange, downtown’s beer specialty boutique, will be open on Thanksgiving day from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., allowing last-minute shoppers an opportunity to grab a few bottles or cans of robust autumn seasonals for the holiday dinner table.

"On Thursday, we will be open to make sure nobody is left beerless," they say. Hopefully, they still have a few bottles Dogfish Head Punkin ale or Southern Tier Pumking ales on the shelves. In the growler station, look for new stuff from Bolder, Highland, the Bruery, Sweetwater, Redhook, and Lagunitas.

The CBX specializes in small batch craft brews. They also sell 64-ounce growlers of newly released ales and lagers and the locally-brewed ales from COAST Brewing Co. Their normal business hours are Monday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Sunday from noon to 6 p.m. Call (843) 577-5446 or visit for more info.
