Are you on a quest to try spirits, wines, or beer from various locations in the U.S. (or world!) to evaluate tastes from different locales? Or maybe you don’t have that mission, per se, but you still like to kick back with a drink while you are on vacation and want to ensure you are getting the best of the best. While you’re here, you can sample what the locals have to offer and fill that desire at any one of these fine Hilton Head breweries or distilleries.

Hilton Head Distillery

Don’t worry about making reservations here. Just come as you are and take your time exploring. More than just a distillery, this is an experience. And it’s one you’ll want to try if you want to get to know some premium spirits. All products are made on the island, so you can expect to get a taste of South Carolina drinks. You can tour the facility or experience any of the many on-site tastings.

Island Winery

Wine tastings are all the rage these days, and you won’t want to miss out while you’re here. Stop by the Island Winery, where tastings are complimentary with the purchase of a bottle of wine. Whether you prefer red or white, take your time deciding on a favorite. You can stay for a simple cheese platter or make an entire experience out of your visit with a package deal. When you have finished, you can head to the shop to take home what you liked the best and maybe pick up some custom wine labels too.

Lincoln & South Brewing Co.

Beer lovers shouldn’t miss a chance to visit this top-rated brewery in Hilton Head. Right in town on Matthews Drive, it’s easy to find and fun to check out. Stay a while with a unique beer blend while you listen to some of the island’s local bands in the evening.


Enjoy your Hilton Head vacation with a taste of the best the Lowcountry offers in libations. Go on a tour, or kick back and relax just as a vacation should be.
