With the craft beer scene in Greenville growing even larger in 2013, the region is becoming an even bigger player in South Carolina’s ever-growing craft beer scene. And starting later this summer, a new tour will help highlight the past and the future of craft beer in the Upstate city.
Beginning Aug. 10 and running every Saturday thereafter, Greenville Brew Tours will take visitors on a trip through Greenville’s craft beer scene, including the bars and breweries that play an integral role in the scene. With 2012 being a record year for tourism in Greenville, now’s the perfect time to strike while the iron’s hot, according to Andy Moller, a managing partner in the endeavor.
“Greenville is a dynamic, cosmopolitan city with a lot of momentum that’s attracting visitors from all over the world – we’re untapping a new, unique way for tourists and locals to experience Greenville while discovering more about its growing local beer industry,” he said in a release.
Tours, which cost $45 per person, will begin at Barley’s Tap Room and stop at Greenville’s three breweries: Thomas Creek, Quest and Brewery 85. Guests will get a behind-the-scenes look at the brewing process at each brewery, learn how each differs and – of course – get a taste of what each has to offer.
Anywhere from four to 12 guests can be accommodated on each tour, and private and corporate tours are also available.
