SLIDESHOW: Charleston Beer Garden packs Brittlebank Park

DOWNTOWN (WCSC) - After a successful 2012 Brewvival in North Charleston, beer-lovers in the Lowcountry had another festival to look forward to Saturday.

Brittlebank Park was packed Saturday afternoon beginning at 1 p.m. for the Charleston Beer Garden. Inspired by the festive biergartens of Germany, the garden featured an extensive list of craft brews, beer school, live music and more.

Enthusiasts stood in long lines in the 90-degree heat to sample beers from Holy City Brewing, Leinenkugel's, Magic Hat, Blue Moon, Thomas Creek, Sweetwater and more.

Others who decided that the 2-ounce sample amount was too small payed to fill their commemorative festival pint glass that was included as part of the $25 entry fee.
