Is that 'Southern Charm' star's new craft beer for real?
Say what you want about the guy, but Austen Kroll can work a room. I had come to The Alley in downtown Charleston on a Saturday in early August to talk to him about the launch of his long-awaited beer brand, King’s Calling. But I’d have to get past the bachelorette parties first.
In a salmon polo and a trucker hat, Kroll had his hands full snapping selfies with one gaggle of high-heeled, sash-wrapped partiers after another. So I ordered a pint of Trop Hop, leaned against the bar and waited for an opening.
