I know, shame on us for plugging a Hilton Head story, but Growlers craft beer & ales is the closest spot to Beaufort if you're the kind of person that likes beer and knows what a "growler" is.
Hint: For the uninitiated, it's a way for you to bring tasty fresh from the keg craft beer home, usually in a 64 ounce tinted glass bottle.
I'll let the photos do the talking but I'll point out that they have 16 taps of beer for sale, and a respectable collection of bottled beer and ales (they say more than 400), and do tastings on Wednesdays and Saturdays from 4 to 7 p.m. (you get four free shot-glass sized tastes.)
32 Shelter Cove Plaza, Hilton Head Island. (843) 686-ALES (2537). Monday to Saturday, 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Sunday, noon to 6. Oh, they've got four stars on RateBeer.
Here's a few more shots from my trip, or check them all out on Flickr or the slideshow up top.

Looking towards the store front from the bar.
A shot-sized taste, you get up to four.
