Founded by husband and wife team, Scott and Sara Gayle McConnell, Tradesman opened as the first brewery on James Island in April 2014 and became part of the growing Charleston beer community. Scott and Sara Gayle had extensive home brewing experience, which fueled their dream of starting their own commercial brewery. Co-Owner Chris Winn joined the team in January of 2015 with years of brewery experience and a love of local beer. Our new facility will be capable of producing almost 2500 barrels of beer annually, and plan to sell draft and canned beer in Charleston, Columbia, Greenville, and Hilton Head/Bluffton/Beaufort. The tasting room (Center for Beer Outreach & Education) will be be open soon for further exploration Monday-Thursday 12-8pm, Friday and Saturday 12-10pm 4:30-8pm, and Sunday 12-6pm.
