Review: I spent the last week and a half traveling from Charleston to Atlanta, visiting friends and family. For years, I have received Snapchats from my best friend at Clemson of “The Wall of Beer.” Naturally, now that I was finally visiting her at Clemson, she had to take me. And it’s exactly what it sounds like: a wall of tantalizing craft beers. But it’s not in some magical place — it’s in a Quik Mart.
Since I am far too biased toward Colorado beers, I made an effort to select beers only from southern brewing companies. Pecans are my favorite nut (although I can’t decide how to pronounce their name — PEE-cans? Peh-cahns? It changes every time. I’m leaning toward pee-cans), and I’ve always been a dark beer fan, so I gave this one a shot.
While I did enjoy the beer, I definitely jumped the gun on the dark beer train. It’s still too hot — at least in South Carolina — to be drinking a brown or a stout. So after a few sips, I was already craving some fruity IPA or a lager. This one is still worth the try, though, especially if you like Ska’s Buster Nut Brown. It’s not terribly heavy, and as fall progresses, will be increasingly satisfying.
