101 in 1001: Keeping it Sweet & Cool at Folly Pier

On our continued mission to finish our 101 in 1001, we checked out another of the Charleston County Parks.

You can read our page on all of the Charleston County Parks here!

The Folly Beach Fishing Pier is located right in the center of Folly Beach. There is a pay parking lot that charges $10 but is free if you are a Gold Pass member.

The pier itself is 25-feet wide and 23-feet above sea level, and is the 2nd longest on the east coast. The pier offers not only spectacular views, but a variety of fishing tournaments, special events, and dining.

At the end of the pier is a 7,500 sq. ft. diamond-shaped platform. It is a double-decker covered space that is great for viewing the sunset over the beach. It’s also where they hold Moonlight Mixers – shag dance parties – in the summer.

The pier building has a full-service restaurant, Locklear’s Beach City Grill, restrooms, a gift and tackle shop, and outdoor showers and picnic tables.

If you are a fisherman, there are fishing tournaments and rod rentals available. Fishing passes are available for purchase in the tackle shop. Otherwise, entry to the pier is free.

We like going to the Folly Beach Fishing Pier at night to catch the sunset and listen to music, so this time we took a drink. It’s already September, so the beer companies are starting to put out their fall blends. We picked up some Sam Adams Octoberfest but wanted to summer-ize it and make it more sweet and refreshing since it’s still quite hot outside. You could do this to any beer, but it is a great way to lighten and brighten up a seasonal fall brew.

Zing Stevia Beer Cocktail - Charleston Crafted

All you do is pour your beer into a glass, squeeze in half a lemon and add one packet of Born Sweet®Zing™ Zero Calorie Stevia Sweetener. This will cause the beer to foam up, so we suggest using a glass with some extra room in it. Garnish with a slice of lemon and enjoy!

The cocktail really is delicious – Sean and I both enjoyed it and he doesn’t really like overly sweet drinks. The trick is that the lemon juice adds a tang that Zing™ Zero Calorie Stevia Sweetener compliments perfectly. It’s a great cocktail to transition you into fall.

Plus, it looks like sweet tea, especially in a tervis with some lemon slices, which is perfect for drinking on the go… like at the Folly Beach Pier!
