RJ Rockers plans 18th anniversary party, first canned release


RJ Rockers is finally legal this year and will celebrate next week with a party hosted at the Spartanburg brewery. And to help kick off their 18th year, they’re planning to begin packaging one of their most popular beers in a new format.

Next Thursday, April 30, RJR will host a celebration to help kick off their 18th year of business. While most 18 year olds celebrate their birthdays with over-the-top affairs, Rockers is planning a low-key celebration at the brewery featuring music from Bill and Tad’s Excellent Duo and grub from the Highway 301 Food Truck. And of course, plenty of beer will be on tap as well. No word on any special birthday releases, but don’t be surprised if some treats show up. More details on the party here.

Speaking of treats, Son of a Peach – the brewery’s 6% wheat ale brewed with South Carolina peaches – will soon be available in cans, according to a recent story in the Greenville News. The beer recently made the transition from seasonal to a year-round offering and cans will be available early summer, just in time for beach season. RJR has traditionally stuck with bottles but “cans are far more sexy than they were in the 1970s,” brewery owner Mark Johnsen told the News.
