Palmetto Brewing Co. collaborated with Cigar City Brewing and Rock Brothers Brewing (both out of Tampa, Fla.), and Hootie & the Blowfish to create Hootie's Homegrown Ale, which was celebrated Monday night at a private beer release party. Held at Palmetto Brewing Co., the brewers and the band were on-site to celebrate the release. The beer will be available at the 12th annual Hootie Homegrown weekend Aug. 8-9 at Family Circle Stadium on Daniel Island and will be sold in retail spots around town come September.
