Delaware brewery coming to North Myrtle Beach


Barefoot Landing is pleased to announce that Crooked Hammock Brewery, will be enriching the lineup of new experiences at North Myrtle Beach’s only waterway shopping, dining and entertainment destination.

 Scheduled to open its lakeside location at Barefoot Landing next spring, Crooked Hammock Brewery will bring to life an all-ages backyard escape experience that will feature craft beer, indoor/outdoor seating for more than 500 guests, fire pits, hammocks, a playground for kids, bocce ball courts, corn hole, and a bar that is set over the lake. Crooked Hammock Brewery’s menu features backyard cookout-inspired food such as backyard burgers, oak-smoked baby back ribs, giant Bavarian pretzels served with beer mustard, and savory sides such as jalapeno and cheddar cornbread all in a pet-friendly environment.

 “We are thrilled to add the Crooked Hammock Brewery to the unique collection of retail and restaurant destinations at Barefoot Landing. With its high-quality food, locally-brewed beer, and relaxed backyard atmosphere, Crooked Hammock is a perfect fit for Barefoot’s coastal Carolina life style,“ said Chad Carlson, executive vice president of the commercial division at Burroughs & Chapin. “Crooked Hammock, complete with a working brewery, full-service restaurant, and retail store, will offer our guests an experience they can’t find anywhere else on the Grand Strand. We fully anticipate Crooked Hammock to become a favorite place for locals and tourists alike.”

 The original concept for Crooked Hammock Brewery came to owner Rich Garrahan when he realized he needed a break from his busy life.

 “At the end of a hard day, I could escape to my own backyard, hop in my crooked hammock, and enjoy an ice-cold beer,” Garrahan said. “Maybe it was the hammock, or maybe it was the beer, but that little escape always helped me embrace the insanity of my life, celebrate the imperfections, and appreciate the life I was living.”

  “We’re looking forward to providing an exciting new experience for Barefoot Landing’s year-round visitors as well as becoming an active part of the whole Grand Strand community,” said Garrahan. Crooked Hammock Brewery will proudly serve locally-brewed beers in a unique environment that lends itself to creating special memories while sharing old stories and enjoying new conversations in an open-aired setting.  We chose the Myrtle Beach area as an ideal spot to set up a local brewery and we can’t wait to kick things off next spring.” 

Crooked Hammock Brewery opened its doors for its first location in Lewes, Delaware in October of 2015. After four short years, it extended its reach just north of the original location with a 4,000 square foot space opening in Middletown, Delaware this fall.  Crooked Hammock is a craft brewery, restaurant and backyard beer garden that creates an easy-going, approachable environment.  The craft beer lineup boasts light and perfectly crushable beers to lie in a hammock with and pairs nicely with the classic backyard cookout inspired menus. Its mission is to provide a place for all ages, incomes, and interests to experience and enjoy the hammock state of mind. Both locations include a backyard beer garden with activities for all ages, with hammocks, corn hole, ping pong, playgrounds, bocce, and more.
