The Craft Beer All Star Showdown lets City Paper readers choose between two Charleston beers in our weeklong showdown. Check out the full bracket below. Today we’re deciding between the top four beers in our bracket. Today’s first match-up is Revelry’s Lean or Fat? vs. Coast’s HopArt Voting for this match-up ends at 3 p.m. TODAY.
Lean or Fat? by Revelry
English Pale Mild Ale, 4% ABV
This summer sipper was specially made for Revelry’s John Lewis Barbecue Series, and it instantly became a hit. The light ABV allowed for easy sipping while awaiting brisket in the sweltering heat. That said, it imparts a slightly salty taste. The beer took home the gold in the English Ale category at the U.S. Open Beer Championship this summer.
32/50 Kolsch by Coast
Carbonation meets creaminess in this year-round COAST brew. This easy sipper imparts honey and light malt flavors as well as the taste of earthy hops, but it finishes dry.
