About the speaker
David Merritt and Jaime Tenny founded COAST Brewing in 2007, but the dream began well before that. David attended the American Brewer’s Guild at 20 years old and has been a brewer in Charleston for as many years. Jaime founded Pop the Cap SC (now the SC Brewer’s Guild) a non-profit that helped steer the craft beer culture through beer laws. COAST was the 2nd brewery to open in Charleston, in a time where the beer movement was strong but very small. Jaime and David are proud to have been involved in the infancy of an industry that they believe is an asset to the community in both social, economic and philanthropic areas. Cheers to South Carolina beer!

Built in 1881, the building served as a textile factory, a cotton mill and then a cigar factory for over 60 years. During the 1930s, the factory was the largest private employer in Charleston with approximately 1,500 workers generating more than 400,000 cigars daily. Several parts of the original warehouse structure will be preserved and restored in the redevelopment of the space.
