What’ll you have?
After a day of Myrtle Beach fun, what better way to cool off than with a pint of your favorite ale, IPA, or lager? A beer is only as good as the atmosphere where you enjoy it. Luckily, Myrtle Beach has lots of joints that offer that in big ways.
Upscale cocktail lounges to gritty dive bars with jamming live music, you’ll find it all here.
Order a round of old standards, or try a unique craft beer. We’ll even suggest the best appetizer to split with your drinking mates while you’re there. Here are a few local favorites. Check websites for current offerings.
What Exactly is a Craft Beer?
Craft beer comes from an often independently-owned brewery.
Sometimes called microbreweries, they create less volume than bigger establishments. Selections often have clever names and unique flavors. Bottle and can design are also distinctive for most. Many bars serve their own house-made brew; others feature a craft brewery’s wares, often local.
Atlas Tap House
This place also has a selection of killer Bs: bourbon, burgers, and barbecue. Atlas also features a fun, knowledgeable staff ready to make your visit stellar.
We recommend 3rd Floor Tripel (Munkie Brewing Co.). It has a malty aroma, medium sweet flavor, and bright fruit finish. Their delicious pork belly nuggets come with house golden Carolina sauce.
The Brass Tap
Sports on TV, live music, and a patio. What more could you want? More than half of the Tap’s brews are local. If you’re in for lunch or dinner, treat yourself to one of their amazing burgers.
We recommend Southern Range Tiny A** Umbrella. It’s a New England-style IPA that isn’t bitter, with tropical fruit notes. Goes well with a plate of Boom Boom Shrimp.
This national German-style brand has a popular, casual haunt in The Market Common. They make all brews, year-long and seasonal, in-house.We recommend Gold Export, a Munich-style light lager. Pair it with a Bavarian pretzel. This bar-food delight comes with housemade Havarti fondue and mustard.
Liberty Tap Room & Grill
This local brewery delivers a stylish atmosphere and delicious steak. The fantastic atmosphere on Broadway at the Beach is what you need for your next round.
We recommend American Blond Ale. From local New South Brewing, it has a pale malt sweetness and a light golden color. Pair it with Blackened Chicken Spring Rolls with spicy ranch.
New South Brewing
This well-known microbrewery also serves cans and growlers. Have a seat on the patio for a wonderful Myrtle Beach vibe to go with your pint.
We recommend: On the Beach. Mild spiciness, light and refreshing, like a walk on the Grand Strand. With awesome food trucks that frequent New South, you can’t go wrong with the grub.
