“We are excited to announce that Holy City Brewing will be expanding in 2018! We will be opening a new facility in the old North Charleston Public Works building off of Spruill and Aragon Avenues, just south of Park Circle. Initially, we will have a closed-to-the-public production facility that will significantly increase our capacity to brew more of our beers, but we will continue to welcome customers to our taproom at its current location on Dorchester Road for libations and food. Beyond that, we have some big plans for the new site.” –Holy City Brewing Owner Chris Brown
“We are thrilled to see Holy City Brewing take over the city’s former public works facility, which will become a key element in the revitalization of Spruill Avenue in Park Circle. Situated on the banks of Noisette Creek, this adaptive reuse project and economic development expansion will become a gathering place for the community to enjoy. We look forward to seeing Holy City’s continued growth.” –North Charleston Mayor Keith Summey
“South Carolina’s agribusiness sector has long been a powerful driver of South Carolina’s economy. I’m excited to see what the future has in store for Holy City Brewing and the rest of our state’s burgeoning craft brewing industry.” –Gov. Henry McMaster
“South Carolina’s craft brewing industry continues to grow by leaps and bounds, making a name for itself locally, regionally and nationally. We welcome this new expansion by Holy City and are excited about the difference these 15 new jobs will make in the community.” –Secretary of Commerce Bobby Hitt
“We congratulate Holy City Brewing and commend them on their efforts to create new economic opportunities and revitalize property in historic North Charleston.” –Charleston County Council Chairman Victor Rawl
“This is yet another coup for the craft brewing scene here in Charleston. Holy City Brewing is ‘homegrown’ with deep community roots in the Lowcountry. We toast Holy City Brewing on this smart growth, craft-style expansion!” – Charleston County Economic Development Executive Director Steve Dykes
