Mellow Mushroom Avondale is home to one of the most stunning bars and most state-of-the art taps in Charleston with 32 taps. Its Perlick Century Beer System is often referred to as the Rolls Royce of beer dispensing, guaranteeing a perfectly cold beer. From the keg, the brew passes through a fully insulated cold block, so it can't warm up and foam at the tap. On top of that, the main lines are vapor-sealed. The kegs themselves have Electronic Keg Sensors (EKS), which can sense when a keg is empty, shut off the beer flow, and leave the line fully packed with beer. This eliminates wasted beer and the embarrassment bartenders feel when a foamy beer mixture sprays all over the place when a keg kicks. What more could a beer snob want?
