Greenville’s Brewery 85 has come a long way since I first got a look at the place earlier this year. From a thicket of brush to a full-fledged brewery, development at one of SC’s newest beer spots has been moving along full steam ahead all year. And they’re confident enough in their progress to pencil in a grand opening date: January 18, 2014.
Tuesday evening, the brewery posted an update about its progress so far. In short, the first couple of batches will be brewed beginning next week and should hit the Greenville market soon after. While opening day isn’t set in stone, things are going smoothly enough to put a potential date out there. A tour and tasting schedule hasn’t been announced yet but will be announced once the brewery’s new website launches.
