Overview
Brewpubs & Craft Brew Bars

Craft beer has become a pretty big deal, and rightly so — it’s fun to enjoy different flavors sometimes. Luckily, there are plenty of Myrtle Beach brewpubs, craft beer bars and even a local brewery where you can sample some of the best brews on coast. There’s brewpubs both new and old, including Liberty’s Broadway at the Beach location dating back to the 90’s and Gordon Biersch at The Market Common a relative newcomer to our growing craft brew scene. You’ll also find bars that specialize in exotic brews with tons of drafts on tap, rare bottles and plenty of folks who know their hops from their barley. The best way to experience everything that these drinkeries have to offer without becoming unnecessarily intoxicated is to do a flight — a small sample of each taken one after the other so that you get a feel for how the different brews differentiate themselves from one another. This is also a great way to narrow in on what you like in a beer.

Gordon Biersch

One of Market Common’s busiest bars, the beer here is brewed in accordance with the 500-year-old German Purity Law. The stock ranges from light and refreshing (Golden Export) to dark and dry (Schwarzbier). And for the full experience, be sure to ask your server or bartender which one to pair with your food.
