Craft Beer on the Coast

The coast's the craft beer scene is HOT (or should we say cool?!). After a long day of visiting the shops downtown, enjoying some time on the beach, or after a long bike ride, what better way to cool off and relax then to enjoy some stellar local beers?!

Just down the street from The Inn is Crooked Letter Brewery (5 minute walk), they have over 12 beers which are brewed on-sight for you you to sample and enjoy on their lovely deck that is shaded by oak trees. This brew pub also serves cocktails, wine & has a full food menu. Crooked Letter was the very FIRST brewery in town, so they have hold a special place in the hearts of all the locals. 

Chandeleur Island Brewing Company is quickly become known nationally for their outstanding brews! You can tell that their passion for brewing great beer is driving them to offer some of the best craft beers around. Their tap room is in Gulfport (30 min drive), but you will find their beers on tap in our downtown restaurants. One of our favorites is the H90 Surf Side Pineapple Wheat- they describe it best by saying, "Enjoy with sunshine.", and we have plenty of that!

Take a quick 3 min drive down the street from The Inn, and you will find our first Nano-Brewery, Hops & Growlers! The brew master Scott, has been coming up with innovative ideas for years, and Ocean Springs is thrilled he has chosen Government Street to launch his tap room! This tiny gem is making some of the most interesting beers around. They will also fill a growler for you to take home, which makes the perfect souvenir!

Just over the bridge you will find Biloxi Brewing Company-"Craft Beer for the Coastal Life". They are currently offering a Coastal Life Series featuring their second release, Black Gold Breakfast Blend, which is brewed with whole coffee beans locally sourced from Coast Roast in Long Beach, MS, it doesn't get much more local than that!

And of course, we have you covered if you are really looking to just kick back and enjoy your stay at The Inn, stop into our cafe and you will find some tasty & refreshing local craft beers! Cheers!

 

SO-GO Neighborhood

Location, location, location! The Inn is in the heart of downtown, just steps away from all the award winning restaurants and unique shops that our guests love. 

The Inn is in a downtown neighborhood that locals refer to as the "So-Go District", where you will find specialty art shops, clothing & shoe boutiques, vintage shops, and great places to grab a bite to eat and enjoy a craft beer or specialty coffee. Right down the street is the beach, where you can relax and maybe catch a sunset.  Around the corner is Government Street, with lively bars, and stand-out music (plus amazing dining options). We are one block from the Walter Anderson Museum, which is well worth a visit. The Inn has a distinctly southern spirit, encouraging you to slow down, relax, and take in all the beauty and charm of the Gulf Coast.

In your suite you will find your very own "So-Go Passport" which offers exclusive discounts for our guests. Take this with you as you explore our neighborhood to get great deals!
