North Myrtle Beach is filled with beautiful beaches, entertaining attractions, and of course the home of the Carolina Shag dance and competition. Some of its most popular attractions are Barefoot Landing, Alabama Theatre, Alligator Adventure, and also some local brewpubs and breweries. With brewpubs and speakeasy’s becoming all the rage right now, North Myrtle Beach is seeing more and more pop up. There are many restaurants that sell craft beers but only a select few have breweries attached to them. Here are a few of our favorite breweries, brewpubs, and restaurants with the best craft beers.
Twelve 33 Distillery
Located in Little River, South Carolina, Twelve 33 Distillery is the first micro craft production distillery in the span of Horry and Georgetown counties. Twelve 33 Distillery produces premium, handcrafted spirits using locally sourced products. It is not only a distillery though, but they have also just recently opened their new speakeasy, where you need a passcode to get in. They hold these events several times a month, and they are a great option for those looking to try some unique beers, while in a laid back, serene setting. They have tours, tasting, and cocktails daily.
