Holy City capitalizes on Stone Law, opens kitchen Wednesday


Charleston’s Holy City will be the first South Carolina brewery to capitalize on the so-called Stone Law when its new kitchen opens for business Wednesday afternoon.

You’ll recall the legislation, which was signed into law a couple of months ago, opened the doors for breweries to establish SC Department of Health and Environmental Control-approved food establishments on site. Doing so would afford the respective brewery new perks, including an increased production capacity, the elimination of an on-premise consumption cap and more.

Holy City has been working to build a kitchen adjacent to the taproom, and on Wednesday morning the brewery shared a photo showing off their DHEC-approved facility. What does this mean for HCB? Well, first off, since the taproom is in essence the “food service portion” of the establishment, the brewery is no long under the restrictions of the Pint Law (48 oz per person per day), so unlimited on-premise consumption is allowed (responsibly, of course). Also, Holy City can now feature guest taps, which are not allowed at breweries unless they have a food service area.

There’s no word yet on what exactly Holy City will be cooking up – and note: You don’t have to eat to benefit from the new perks – but this should all come in handy Saturday as Holy City hosts its third anniversary celebration.
