February Events

Brewvival 2016 will also be taking a new path of not announcing the majority of breweries/beers being shown in advance. This format change will allow for more creativity and better beer diversity while allowing the brewer’s freedom to present specialties without preconception. This will create a more relaxed, less pressured environment to enjoy the festival. The veil of long lines for specifically hyped beers and rushes to particular tables/tappings has begun to weigh heavily on attendees and breweries alike. Getting back to the basics, being a part to enjoy the beer, will be promoted by this change. We realize this new approach will be aggravating to some. We hope that most of you will trust in Brewvival’s proven track record of not disappointing you. We truly feel this will be the best show yet.

In the spirit of the new format changes, we will also be bringing fresh ideas to the food options present. Every food vendor at Brewvival 2016 will be a new participant. We are grateful to all our past culinary partners and so appreciative of their years of support.

February 27th:  Enjoy local food and scenery while celebrating the 12th annual “Mardicrawl” to benefit local charities.  Come join us as we “crawl” to 7 different Shem Creek bars and restaurants for our 12th Annual “party with a purpose” to benefit Pet Helpers, Inc, Alzheimer’s Association – South Carolina Chapter and various other Lowcountry Charities!!
