There’s just something so enticing. You’re enjoying our island paradise, playing 18 holes of golf, or a few sets of pickleball, or simply hanging out on the beach riding the surf. What better way to quench your thirst than one of the numerous beer offerings you can find around the resort?

Six beers are currently on tap at Big Jim’s BBQ, Burgers & Pizza, which overlooks the Robert Trent Jones golf course. For International Beer Day, Ryan picked the most refreshing summer selections.

  • PDR Oceanfront Light Beer by Shellring Ale Works - Try our new refreshing PDR Oceanfront Beer, crafted with a light, crisp refreshing taste with hints of Orange Zest. This beer is brewed and canned by Shellring Ale Works in Port Royal, SC.

  • Freedom Machine Vol. 5 by Service Brewing Co.— An easy drinking Juicy IPA. This beer by Service Brewing Co. is veteran owned, and veteran brewed in Savannah, GA. This company has helped raised tens of thousands of dollars for local, regional and national organizations.

If you’re enjoying the beach, the oceanfront Dunes House is also carrying Service Brewing Co., among their half-dozen beers on draft. Dunes House Manager Christina Price recommends a couple of other beers that pair great with the view. 

  • River Dog Brewing Company IPA (pictured to the left) is their flagship American IPA with cascade, amarilla and Idaho 7 hops.

  • Landshark Lager (pictured right) is brewed by Margaritaville Brewing Co. in St. Louis, MO. This island-style lager is a complex blend of hops and two-row caramel malts with a light, refreshing taste and a hint of malty sweetness.

Along with an extensive wine list, Alexander’s Restaurant and Wine Bar offers a wide range of beers. General Manager Greg Weppner also recommended the canned offerings of the local company, Riverdog Brewing Company. They are based just off Hilton Head Island in Okatie, S.C.

Founded in 2012 by the Gray Family, River Dog Brewing has managed to make a splash in the rising tide of the Southern craft beer scene. Under the direction of Head Brewer Amelia Keefe, they’ve created an exceptional menu of hand‐crafted, nationally recognized and award‐winning beers. Pictured above is their refreshing Operation Jackpot Hazy IPA.
