Perfect for Spring, there’s a new seasonal beer on tap at Southend Brewery & Smokehouse in downtown Charleston SC. Brewmaster Ahren Warf has just crafted the Rye Citra Pale Ale which has been flowing very nicely with the beer crowd in Charleston.

The Rye Citra Pale Ale is named for the hop (Citra) used during both the brewing process and the dry hopping.  An amber-colored beer with 6.0% a.b.v., the new seasonal brew has a pronounced rye flavor and is as hoppy as an IPA. A great beer to sip on its own by the pint or pitcher, the Rye Citra Pale Ale also goes great with the expanded pub food menu at Southend.

Like  all of our signature microbrews, the Rye Citra Pale Ale is locally crafted and brewed right here on site. Beer lovers will appreciate the meticulous brewing  process that goes into every one of our beers.  Learn more about Southend’s beer here.

Although our seasonal beer offering changes every few weeks, Southend offers five handcrafted beers that remain on tap all year-long:

LOVE ME TWO TIMES BLONDE: Our signature ale, almost musical, golden, smooth and light. Its subtle hop finish will leave you feeling refreshed and begging for more.

WATCH IT GROW WHEAT: Ice cold, smooth and unfiltered, with a hint of citrus and summer. Float an orange slice in your glass and savor this light bodied ale like a long summer day.

CASTLE PINCKNEY PALE ALE: Conquer your thirst with this medium bodied, copper colored ale. Your taste buds will surrender with just one sip of this full flavored, hoppy brew.

RIP TIDE RED: An American, full flavored microbrew in its finest form. This medium bodied, ruby red beer will swallow up your taste buds like a wave from Folly Beach.

PICT’S STOUT: A round, roasted, full-bodied brew, unearthed from medieval Scotland. Enjoy this dark, silky stout and its perfect blend of flaked oats and eight varieties of malted barley.

Enjoy Southend signature brews by the pint, pitcher, growler or try them all with our sampler tray.  Southend Brewery is open daily from 11:30 a.m. – 2:00 a.m. with Happy Hour Sunday through Thursday from 4:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m.

See you soon!
