Could a new brewery, accompanying pavilion and artisan village take shape in Murrells Inlet? The answer to that question ultimately begins with the Georgetown County Planning Department. This month, owners of the popular Quigley's Pint & Plate locations are hoping county officials will consider their plan for a proposed 4,000-square-foot brewery, as well as an accompanying pavilion and artisan village that consists of repurposed shipping containers on U.S. 17 just south of Wachesaw Road. If the proposed plan were to come to fruition, it would also need to go to the zoning department for consideration of rezoning the land to a flexible design district. Named the CoQuina Project, for a nearby street, the proposed brewery and outdoor entertainment area would be one of a few flexible design districts in Georgetown County should it be approved. The 4,000-square-foot brewery and taproom, which could open as soon as spring 2022 if approved, would be capable of producing 2,000 barrels of beer a year and would also feature a dog park, a pavilion for outdoor community events and private parties, along with the artisan village of repurposed shipping containers. According to Josh Quigley and Billy Davis, partners who own Quigley's Pint & Plate locations and bisQit in the Hammock Shops, the vision for the Murrells Inlet property is to provide a community hub for local artisans and event organizers.
