Went there after a tour of the city with my wife. Drank at the bar, which is on the 2nd floor (pizza restaurant on the first).
Was hoping to see some big beers since the law changed, but although the selection is large, I found myself not being impressed by much they had. I love big IPA's, and they have none. When I asked the bartender what their best IPA was, she pulled out a bottle of Harpoon. Harpoon is OK, but their best? Yikes. No Imperial Stouts either. They had Weihestephaner listed as on tap, but were out, as well as another German Hefe they were out of. They did have Hogarten, Ayinger Hefe, Hobgoblin, Arrogant Bastard, and many other fine beers, just nothing that a hop head would crave. No Stone, Great Divide, Victory, Bear Republic, and other than the Witbier, no Belgians at all.
I suppose some things only change slowly. Here's to hoping that SC becomes a beer destination some day.

Stopped in here for a bite to eat on my way through town. I always try to make it a point to stop in at a friendly place and this was about as friendly as you can get. Nice two story place with the Pizza part downstairs, since the family was with me this is where we ended up. Huge selection of bottles rivaled anything I have seen in SC, I mean just a huge number. Must have been around 20 taps and all were pretty much quality. No BMC to be seen. Some nice Rogues and lots of locals. Food was excellent and the service was fast and efficient. Very cool atmosphere and a nice place to bring the family. Traffic getting there is a bit rough, but the trip was worth it. I will definitely be stopping back in here again.

Doesn't get much better than this in Charleston, SC. Two, count 'em, two Rogue Ales on tap. It's where SC beer mavens gather. Pizza was a notch above the average. I'll be visiting the Mellow Mushroom again, no doubt, even if only for the door handles.

This is a nice southern hippie/yuppie pizza chain with some good draught and bottled beers to peddle. Atmosphere is nuevo hippie with nice sculptured letters, exposed warehouse style firehouse brick, etc, etc. Free local papers compliment the food and beer nicely. The pizza here is amazingly killer and pretty cheap. Try the fresh garlic, basil, tomato, and pesto combo...scrumptous. The beers are fresh and good as well, the draught selection was lacking but a few palmetoo bottles went with my beer just grand. A good place in Charleston (and all points deep south) check them out when you get a chance...

Mellow Mushroom's bar has the best beer selection I've seen in Charleston. They've got probably 100 bottles of different stuff and another 10-15 taps of the better beer available in town. I'm a fan of the rotating Rogue tap, myself. The pizza is great and compliments the various beers available. You just have to ask the bartender for a non-chilled glass...

Had dinner at MM on 1/15. Downstairs was packed but we were able to find a couple seats upstairs at the bar. This was my first time at this particular MM as I have been to a couple other locations. Overall, this one was tops for me. Food was good as always, and they had a very impressive bottle selection centering mostly on American micros with a smaller selction of Belgiums,Germans, and other imports. Looked like at least 15 handles for drafts. I ordederd pints of Coast Brown Rye, Bells Two Hearted Ale, and Coast Hop Art. All beers came in chilled pint glasses (not frozen Glasses).
Service was great and the bartender was very personable. We talked about our dissapointment of Founders leaving South Carolina. For dinner I ordered the Steak and Cheese Calzone. Food was very filling and came out hot and fresh. With it being friday night in Charleston, the attractive co-eds were out and about. Glad I was here with a friend and not the wife, or I'd be in trouble for checking out the scenery.

Stopped by last night to watch Ohio State get blown out of the water by Florida in the BCS Championship game. I left at half time but had a good time while at MM.
Same setup as most other ones: Booths and tables downstairs with the kitchen, bar and more booths and tables up stairs with the teles. I was upstairs. Lots of The Citadel cadets were there since school was back in session. I actually had the best service at this MM than I have had at any other. The bartender paid attention and refilled my water and beer glass whenever needed.
They had about 20 beers on draft and maybe 50 bottles. I had draft beers: $4 Rogue Santas Private Reserve, $3.50 Terrapin Rye, $4 Imperial pint of Guinness, $4 Highland St Terese, and finished the night off with some $1 PBR cans.
This is a nice MM with tons of stuff to do around town as well. SInce it is right in downtown, there are about four or five more decent bars within walking distance.
Monday night is Metal Monday Karaoke right next door. WOW!!

Nice chill atmosphere on the second floor of a pizza chain, its generally not terribly crowded but I'm a cook and am never there on a fri/sat night. Long bar with lots of lcd tv's and what not definitely a cool looking place in my book and not too pretentious.
The quality of the food is pretty good, ive only ordered food once and they definitely make good pizza dough.
Beer selection is about as good as charleston gets, they definitely have the best draft selection in charleston. 3 rotating Rogue taps with a lot of limited edition stuff floating through which is the highlight in my opinion. They also have 2 or 3 coast taps which is also a big plus. WHen I was there last they had avery's ipa and stout so they keep up with the time too which is cool. Bottle selection is not bad, a lot of sold selections. Abt 12, old rasputin, terrapin, lots of carolina and georgia stuff going on which is cool.
Prices are kinda steep in my opinion, a pint will run you like 4-6 bucks and an old rasputin set me back 6 so I definitely wouldn't call it cheap but that location is definitely not cheap either so its to be expected. IF you like draft beer, as of right now the MM is the place to go in Charleston check it out.

This was actually one of the better bars we visited in Charleston. The upstairs bar is actually pretty cooler. It looks like it may be the the top end as far as Mellow Mushroom goes, and they had incredible music playing the night we visited. Seriously, how often are you going to hear Iron and Wine played in a bar? The beer selection was a little better than what was on tap at Charleston Beer Works, but would easily be surpassed in a larger city. Sadly I missed being able to get a pint of Coast Brewing's Black Beerd Imperial Stout by a single day here.
My only complaint is that they put the very cool and well-stocked bar on the top floor. Seriously, how are they going to expect drunk people to make it down that spiral staircase without falling to serious injury. Luckily, I stopped after a Victory Storm King and an Atlanta Brewing Bogart.
As for food, I really like Mellow Mushroom's pizza and pretzels. They've got some of the best crust (texture and taste) of any chain pizza place I've ever been.

So, I had not been to Mellow Mushroom in a while, and this was the first time I actually sat in the bar Area. On Tap They had Charleston Brewing's Lagerhead lager and East Bay IPA. Rouge(Deadguy, and Kells Irish Lager), Hobgoblin, Newcastle, and about ten others. Bottled beer: I was really impressed. They had things I had never seen in the state: Cooper's Vintage and Dark Ale(they also stock the sparkling, extra stout, and the pale). Highland Brewing Kashmir IPA(as well as the other three varieties we see in this town), Rogue's red ale, among others. Also fully stocked with Rogue bottles, as well as Sam Smith, a nice selection of European beers in general, and just about all the micro and craft brews from the US that you can find in Charleston(one of the best selections in town).
Service was the best that I have had ever at Mellow Mushroom, which is not saying much. But the waiters/bartenders were nice and helpful....The service has improved alot.
Food: They have great food, highly recommended.
Its kinda pricey on beer and food....you can rack up a bill real quickly
