New Realm Brewing Company is taking over the 11,000-square-foot Dockery’s facility on Daniel Island with a brewery, restaurant, outdoor patio, music venue and private event spaces.
The site at 880 Island Park Drive will be rebranded New Realm in May.
According to a press release, much like the New Realm’s flagship Atlanta location, the Daniel Island location will feature the company’s lineup of award-winning craft beers and limited specialty releases, some available only on Daniel Island.
New Realm’s brew master Mitch Steele, who is recognized as one of the craft beer industry’s best brewers and has helped drive innovation and the IPA market for several decades, will be at the helm of the Daniel Island brewery. Steele authored the book “IPA:
Brewing Techniques, Recipes and the Evolution of India Pale Ale.”
The onsite scratch kitchen will serve menu items such as the New Realm Burger, mac and cheese, as well as locally sourced specialties. Complementing New Realm’s high-quality fare and craft beer will be live music in a venue that boasts state-of-the-art acoustic and sound technology.
“Ever since we opened our Atlanta brewery and restaurant in 2018, we’ve been asked by our neighbors in South Carolina when New Realm beers would be available in the state. We are thrilled to announce that the time has come. A South Carolina location has always been in our plans and the Charleston area is the perfect location to add a brewery and restaurant,” said Carey Falcone, co-founder and CEO of New Realm, in a statement. “We will continue to enhance the original Dockery’s vision of a destination that brings the community together through great food, great beer, and great music.”
New Realm’s brewery and restaurant is expected to maintain approximately 100 employees in the local Charleston market.
Daniel Island will be New Realm’s fourth location. Others include Atlanta, Georgia; Virginia Beach, Virginia; and their soon-to-be-open distillery and restaurant in Savannah, Georgia.
New Realm was started in 2016 by Falcone, Steele, and Bob Powers.
