First reporting:

In a dual anniversary celebration, Charleston culinary legend Robert Stehling of Hominy Grill will partner with Rich Carley and Scott Shor, owners of The Charleston Beer Exchange on Sunday, November 15 for Bacon, Eggs & Beer: The Beer for Breakfast Dinner.

Check out the press release below:


The timing is no accident: November marks the one-year anniversary for the peninsula’s craft beer headquarters and the thirteenth for the pioneering Rutledge Avenue restaurant. “As a small business owner, I feel that it is important to celebrate successful local businesses, which is why I wanted to collaborate with Rich. After tasting his beers, you’ll become a loyal customer just like me,” laughs Stehling.

The evening will begin at 6:00 pm with passed hors d’oeuvres followed by dinner at 7:00 pm. Menu highlights include oyster and bacon stuffed french toast, duck sausages with fried apples and buckwheat pancakes, grass-fed steak and eggs and a beer float with caramel ice cream. “Pairing beers with Robert’s inspired take on “breakfast for dinner” allows us the opportunity both to showcase some great beers while demonstrating beer’s remarkable versatility” explains Carley. Beer highlights include Brooklyn Brewery’s Brooklyn Local 1, Hoppin’ Frog Brewery’s Frog’s Hollow Double Pumpkin Ale and The Bruery’s Orchard White.

Tickets for the dinner are $55. For more information or to reserve your spot, please call Hominy Grill at (843) 937-0930 or shoot an email to
