Most Creative Beer Styles: Skull Coast Ale Company. They like nuts. I have no idea when or how you add nuts during the brewing process, but they make an almond pale ale, and a porter with macadamia nuts, so they must grasp the concept.
Best Beer Name: Fish Paralyzer, RJ Rockers. I haven't been able to discern the origin of it's name, but I imagine that a pet fish drank too much of it and thought he could jump out of the tank, only to come up short, hit the edge, and paralyze himself. Somewhere there is a fish in a wheel chair that despises RJ Rockers.
Most Interesting Beer: White Thai, Westbrook Brewing. I'll definitely be trying this beer the next time I'm in Charleston, or if it somehow miraculously gets shipped to my front door....
The Palmetto State is an up and comer in the craft beer landscape. On top of creating quality brews, the breweries there are also embracing the concept of green brewing. None of them have too large of a distribution footprint, but if you are in the Carolinas or Georgia anytime soon, be sure to throw back a couple South Carolina brews. Next up is a drive back up the East coast to New Hampshire.
