Low Country Libations is a group of men and women dedicated to the enjoyment and promotion of homebrewing and beer evaluation in the greater Charleston area. We share knowledge, methods, new brew pub and microbrewery discoveries, and good homebrew at monthly meetings and special events.


The club sponsors the Colonial Cup Homebrew Competition, an annual AHA-sanctioned competition open to any and all homebrewers. The club also evaluates and forwards members’ beer to AHA Club-Only competitions for particular beer styles.


We are also involved in the national Beer Judge Certification Program (BJCP) activities, and sponsor beer judge study groups and qualifying exams. Many of the local stores and shops offer discounts to Low Country Libations members.


If you like beer, want to know beer styles better, brew your own beer, or are just curious as to what it takes to brew beer, Low Country Libations meetings are the place for you to come to get your questions answered.


Guests are always welcome!
