Located on the heart of Devine Street, Craft and Draft prides themselves on being Columbia’s premier beer store. Craft and Draft was founded in 2014 by two University of South Carolina graduates who set out to do things a little differently than your normal bar or alcohol retailer. The premise behind their shop is to be a place where people can gather to enjoy some local and craft beers, and then take home a case of their favorite.
The atmosphere of the store is comfortable and inviting, with a large bar in the back of the store featuring 12 taps of ever-changing local and craft beers. In addition to the bar, there are plenty of seats around the windows, perfect for gathering with friends or coworkers for a quick drink.
Our team stopped by for a quick happy hour after work, and were able to try out a few of their different beers. As many breweries do, Craft and Draft offers the option to purchase a flight, and try out a few of the different beers that they have on tap. Many of our team members tried out almost everything that they had on the menu, with each person enjoying a different brew. In addition, there are plenty of other drink options for folks who may not be in the mood for a beer, including a varied selection of wine and other spirits.
The owners of the shop are incredibly friendly, and you are sure to find a wide selection of beers to choose from. We highly recommend that you check out Craft and Draft the next time you’re out on Devine Street!
