Looking for a new beer in downtown Charleston SC? Southend Brewery & Smokehouse has you covered with a new seasonal brew on tap – an Unfiltered Blonde with Lemongrass and Ginger. Let us just stop and tell you now, it’s gooood!

The new beer is unfiltered giving it a bit of a cloudy complexion, but don’t let that fool you.  It’s a definite blonde, light beer that is great for Spring and warmer weather. Brewmaster Ahren Warf says, “I prefer unfiltered beer because it has more character and is more dynamic.”  We’re definitely taking his word for it because Ahren knows his beer!

Made with East Kent Golding hops and Pilsner, Vienna and honey malts, the new Unfiltered Blonde is an easy, drinkable beer.  On the front of the palate, you will get the distinct ginger flavor while the finish draws out the lemongrass.  It’s perfectly blended without one flavor outshining the other.

The new Unfiltered Blonde is a versatile beer that is enjoyed on its own or with almost any Southend food menu item.  We suggest pairing it with wings, one of our famous brick oven pizzas or seafood dishes for dining and drinking perfection.

We encourage you to come in soon to try out Southend’s latest addition as it won’t be around for long.  Our bartenders will be serving it on tap for about another week and a half before making room for Ahren’s next creation.  What will he brew up next?  Well, you’ll just have to wait and see…
