Freehouse featured at Beer and Blue Jeans Dinner


Last year, Charleston’s Circa 1886 hosted what it dubbed a Beer and Blue Jeans Dinner – an informal beer dinner for such an upscale restaurant – featuring a multi-course meal and spotlighting Westbrook. The event returns Friday, June 13, with a new local brewery in the spotlight: Freehouse

Paired with Belgain Golden Ale
