Something’s always brewing in North Myrtle Beach. In this case, it’s actual brews from bars and a local brewery along our part of the Grand Strand. Here are some of our favorite spots to get delicious craft brews:

Crooked Hammock Brewery

Sip on South to Somewhere, Beach Escape, and Hammock Easy. These are a few of the year-round beers made in-house at Crooked Hammock Brewery in Barefoot Landing. Seasonal favorites include summer's Myrtle Peach ale and fall’s Jav-O-Lantern. The Jav-O-Lantern is a pumpkin coffee ale perfect for a cozy fall night by their outdoor fireplace. 

Order a few brews for the table and shareable appetizers, like the baked crab dip or wings. Want something for yourself? Choose one of the signature backyard cookout items, such as the honey BBQ ribs or grilled meatloaf. There are also salads and sandwiches. 

Relax at a table on the covered patio or a hammock in the waterfront backyard. There are also plenty of outdoor games, including cornhole! And always something going on, from live music performances to yoga classes.

Main Street Taphouse

You’ll want to pull up a stool at this popular day and nighttime spot along Main Street. It’s a place where both residents and visitors gather for delicious brews and food, plus live music and sporting events. 

Find a selection of IPAs, ales, lagers, and stouts from local and regional breweries. There are seasonal beers and ciders, and the taps rotate frequently so you can try something new each time you visit. Pair your brew with shareable appetizers, like quesadillas, flatbread pizzas, and paninis.

Captain Archie’s

Sip on ice-cold beers while gazing out at the Intracoastal Waterway from Captain Archie’s. 

Pull up a seat at the bar or in the outdoor seating area and enjoy craft favorites, like Sierra Nevada. Captain Archie’s also offers imported and domestic beers. Plus, tropical-themed cocktails. Pair a cold one with a delicious appetizer, like Captain’s Island Shrimp. Entrées vary and include fried seafood platters and hamburgers. 

Nothing goes better with a cold brew than live music. Check out Archie’s weekly musical lineup.

OD Arcade & Lounge

Forget what adults told you as a kid. Life is all fun and games, at least while you’re on vacation in NMB. At OD Arcade & Lounge, you can enjoy delicious craft brews while dancing to live music or playing pool. The local hangout spot is popular with Shag dancers and if you hang out long enough, you may learn a thing or two about South Carolina’s signature dance there.

Find big-name craft beer selections, from Redd's to Goose Island. Beyond that, domestic and imported beers, cocktails, and wines. When you get hungry, order from the food menu featuring bar bites, sandwiches, and burgers along with daily lunch and dinner specials.
