The plan had been marinating for several years. Find a craft beer desert in an area where the population craves the craze and it will be a winning combination — at least that was the vision for the Beer Man craft beer shop at 214 St. James Ave. in Goose Creek.
Co-owner Vince Lehr had his first Allagash beer 12 years ago. Ever since, he has been crafting a plan to open his own shop. The main reason: he could rarely find the beer that inspired his business model.
“I couldn’t find it anywhere, and then I’d find it and then it would disappear and then I’d find it again,” said Lehr. “Over the years, I was self-employed and I was just thinking about — I said, man somebody should open a craft beer store where you can always find the beer you want.”
“I literally envisioned everything you see here,” he said.
On July 2, the ribbon was cut on the store and his dream was finally a reality. He along with co-owner David Smith think they have found their niche’. He has beer from almost every continent as well as local brews. There are flags on the walls marking where the beers are from.
“Goose Creek is definitely where we wanted to put it,” Lehr said. ”... I’ve lived in Goose Creek for 20 years, Dave is born and bred in Berkeley County.”
“Part of the concept is we are looking for craft beer deserts ... and Goose Creek is the Sahara of the craft beer deserts.”
And there is plenty of beer to sell. Lehr said grocery stores do as much as they can to sell it, but here is more craft beer than there is shelf space.
“I appreciate what vendors have to do because they have all this beer and nowhere to go,” he said. “So when they are in a Publix and have three feet of space they can only do what they can do.”
“Having been an entrepreneur and a businessman and having been in retail all my life, I know there is this sea of beer out there looking for a home and a sea of people that love craft beer. So really it’s almost kind of a no-brainer to marry them,” he said.
In just his first days of opening, Lehr adds he has had numerous customers come in and prove his theory — that if he builds it, they will come. Many early customers have said: “I can’t find this beer anywhere and you have it,” or “I had to go all the way to James Island to find this beer.”
So his idea seems to be working, and he is certain he picked the right spot to help it grow.
“We definitely wanted to do it for the City of Goose Creek and they have been a wonderful partner,” he said. “I’m 55-years-old now and if somebody else would have done this I would have had to move. We are hoping it is successful enough that we are able to find other little craft beer deserts.”

Like a pounding rain that begins with a trickle. it all starts with some random whistles, snaps and pops in the late afternoon. But as the sun sets, bright flashes and booms follow in an endless cacophony that will continue for hours.
Some like it; some don’t.
For five days out the year, Goose Creek allows fireworks to be set off. Those days are Independence Day, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day.
At the May 9 council meeting, residents hit the podium hoping elected officials may ban the booms altogether.
“Fireworks pose a fire hazard to homes, including those with asphalt shingle roofs. For the safety of all Goose Creek residents, consider prohibiting personal use fireworks within the City of Goose Creek,” said resident David Driggers.
“I’m here tonight to ask your consideration making Goose Creek a no fireworks zone. ... For the safety of my property, my neighbors and the city, please take this request seriously,” said resident Judy Fox.
“The noise is a nuisance to other residents. There is a danger of a fire being started and the danger of property damage. ... Additionally, the fireworks are stressful for our many residents who are veterans and served in war zones,” said Cynthia Curry, who has lived in the city since 1978.
Residents who want the fireworks to stop said they have gone to Crowfield’s Home Owners Association several times and were eventually told to make the request to City Council. But others showed up at the meeting to support the existing rules.
“There may be people who have PTSD. I’m a veteran. I’ve got 24 years in and out of combat zones. ... Lets be careful to bring the veterans out as the reason to stop having freedoms. Most of us put our lives on the line for those freedoms we celebrate on the 4th of July and other holidays,” said resident Mike Conner, an Air Force Veteran.
“I think it’s a fundamental freedom. I’m a bicentennial baby, conceived on that night. I am a very fervent supporter of fireworks, just like (Thomas) Jefferson and (John) Adams,” said Heather Burns.
Those forefathers would be happy to learn that cities such as North Charleston allow fireworks year around up until 10 p.m.
Other municipalities, however, have banned personal fireworks. Some of those include Myrtle Beach, Sullivan’s Island and Folly Beach. Comments from Goose Creek residents were made during the public discussion portion of the meeting. There is no official movement to change the local fireworks ordinance.
“We haven’t as a council openly discussed it. But as far as what they are asking for, we already have two ordinances that cover it,” said council member Melissa Enos. “One ordinance says it can’t be in the city except for five days a year, and the second ordinance is for projectiles.”
The projectile ordinance states that if a firework lands on another property, it is a code violation, which in some cases covers property damage. Enos said she understands the concerns of those wanting them prohibited. Under the current ordinance, that is the case 360 days a year.
“The two ordinances that exist now gets them like 97-percent there. I think what they are asking for is to get them 100 percent there,” she said. “We try not to over regulate and over govern.”

Officers from the Goose Creek Department along with investigators from the South Carolina Department of Social Services (DSS) are investigating possible human trafficking involving minors inside a home in the Boulder Bluff subdivision.
Information provided shows that officers were first notified by DSS on Jan. 27. The incident report shows the person suspected, allowed juveniles to live in the home. The report alleges there is drug use and prostitution inside the home as well as at other locations.
The incident report did not show any arrests made in the case at the time and it did not identify the home where the alleged activity was occurring.
Recently the state AG’s office released new numbers on the amount of human trafficking in the state. The office is one of several that make up the South Carolina Human Trafficking Task Force. The task force consists of numerous agencies and advocacy groups all over the state.
The latest report showed a rise in sex trafficking. The numbers also showed that there has been 458 percent increase in labor trafficking. Locally Berkeley and Charleston Counties has a share. Berkeley has three trafficking cases pending in court and Charleston had 14 incidents in 2022.
Also the South Carolina Law Enforcement Division reports the agency supported 416 cases involving human trafficking in the state in 2022. The cases included 399 minor victims, the report showed. There was also a 128 percent increase in calls to the hotline reporting suspected incidences.
Kathleen “Kat” Choate’s geese are flying down Saint James Avenue in Goose Creek this week in a “banner event” for the local artist and her contest-winning watercolors.
A Goose Creek resident for nine years, Choate earned the high-visibility spot as a result of a recent contest, one of several the city sponsors in an ongoing effort to support the arts. While Choate’s vibrant rendition of the town’s namesake bird flies in banner form along the busy thoroughfare, another version of it can be found on one of the city’s sanitation trucks.
Choate is a Connecticut native who studied at Southern Connecticut State University but focused on art education only in her elective classes. She originally worked in charcoal, acrylics and pastels.
“I’ve been focusing on watercolors for three years,” she said. “I love being able to let go of my control, to let the colors move around and surprise me. I try to embrace those times when it doesn’t do what I intended or if I get ‘blooms.’ I think those little surprises add to the paintings.”
A “bloom” is a term for the spontaneous paint blossoms that occur in watercolor work due to its high liquid content.
“I’ve noticed the city of Goose Creek doing a lot to supports the arts, and I greatly appreciate it,” she said. “Painting is my happy place and my stress relief. I typically gravitate towards painting things that make me happy and I love using bright colors.”
Several other area artists have their work along Goose Creek’s Red Bank Road.
Viewers can also find Choate’s art at her website, KChoateArt.square.site, as well as on Facebook and Instagram at @kchoateart.

GOOSE CREEK, S.C. (WCSC) – The city of Goose Creek hosted a groundbreaking ceremony Tuesday afternoon as construction begins on the new Joseph S. Daning Amphitheater.
Although the Daning Amphitheatre will not open until the fall of 2024, members of Goose Creek City government, including Mayor Greg Habib, are already emphasizing the impact the new entertainment venue will have on the city.
“You can learn a lot about a city based on the emphasis it puts on the arts,” Habib says. “The arts can separate good cities from great cities, and separate great cities from destinations; this project is but the latest in our commitment to art in Goose Creek.”
Costing just under $4 million, the amphitheater can seat 800 people and will be located at the lake behind City Hall, beside the City’s Recreation Complex.
The city announced last August that the amphitheater will be named after former S.C. Rep. Joe Daning, who was a Goose Creek City Council member for over 20 years.
“I can’t tell you how much this amphitheater will provide a wonderful event space for all types of cultural happenings in the Goose Creek community for many generations,” Daning says. “And for me, and I know for a lot of folks, it’s a dream come true.”
Habib says the entertainment space will redefine what it means to grow up in Goose Creek and be a testament to arts in the city.
“We are enriching our hometown expanding our horizons and making an impact beyond our borders and moving our world,” he adds. “Ladies and gentlemen, this amphitheater is going to redefine what it means to grow up in Goose Creek.”
Cultural Arts Commission Vice Chairperson Libby Roerig also says that the structure will increase the quality and quantity of performance arts in the city.
“The amphitheater will mean more cultural events and programs, more concerts, more poetry nights, more dramatic performances, more movie nights, more special events,” Roerig says. “More opportunities for more kids to take part in and to take in performing arts in Goose Creek.”
The amphitheater will take 18 months to complete following Tuesday’s groundbreaking and will be built by Trident Construction.
The Middleton Group Architects and Baker Engineering LLC are also partners on the project.

GOOSE CREEK, S.C. (WCBD) – Goose Creek could soon be home to… more chickens?
A new chicken ordinance in Goose Creek allows residents to have up to four chickens at their homes, but there are some rules you must follow.
“We’ve been trying to pass it for a while. It’s very contentious for reasonable reasons, and that is why our ordinance is so robust. It’s a four-page ordinance,” explained Goose Creek City Councilwoman Melissa Enos.
The ordinance allows homeowners to have up to four chickens, but no roosters, on their property. Renters can also have chickens with the landlord’s consent. Homeowners’ associations will still be allowed to ban chickens from neighborhoods. You must also have enough room in your yard for the chickens.
“You’re going to have to come down to the city and apply for a permit for $25, and the permit will have information on it that has the attached ordinance. You’ll have to have a coop, you have to have a chicken run- what the specifications of that is, your chicken food has to be in a rodent-proof container, all of those all of those sort of things. You can’t be able to see your chicken coop from your neighbor’s backyard, so you’ll either have to have a natural fence or a privacy fence. So, for all of those reasons you can’t have a rooster, you can’t have more than four chickens.”
The $25 permit will be an annual fee. Enos said that money will be used to help pay the code enforcement officers who will respond to complaints about chickens.
Some people have concerns about allowing chickens at all.
“One individual was saying he’s concerned about how it could increase rodents and snakes if your neighbor has one, what do you say to that,” we asked the city.
“Well, first of all, chickens are the closest thing to velociraptors- so they actually eat snakes. So, you’ll be okay with that. Responsible chicken owners have chicken mesh to keep them out of the coop and their food will be in rodent-proof containers,” Enos replied.
The ordinance is now in effect. Just head to city hall when they are open and apply.
