One of my favorite breweries in the Southeast, Coast Brewing Company, took its first step toward global domination and has its Rye Knot Brown Ale available at Barley’s Tap Room in Greenville, SC. This is their first beer to be sold outside of Charleston.
I had the pleasure of having a couple pints last night at Barley’s. It is a rich brown ale with an intense roasted malt flavor. It also has enough coffee and chocolate undertones to make it very interesting. At 6.2% ABV, it isn’t too overpowering, but has enough body to enjoy a few pints in a sitting. It’s a great winter beer when you need something to warm the soul.
