Thanks to everyone who came out for our Amber tasting this past Thursday!  We wanted to continue returning to our craft roots with simpler styles.  These classics are still big fan favorites today and what many of us started off drinking.

Join us this upcoming Friday, August 22nd, from 5-7 PM for an event featuring Sierra Nevada!  We’ve managed to get our hands on kegs of two Beer Camp releases – Yonder Bock and Tater Ridge.  Drop in any time from 5-7 PM to get a taste of these two great collaborations along with two Sierra Nevada classics.  We’ll have glassware and other swag on hand to give out with growler fills or 6-pack purchases while supplies last.

If you’re looking for something different for your growler for the weekend, we’ve tapped another keg of Warwick Valley‘s delicious Doc’s Draft Framboise Cider.  This light and refreshing raspberry apple cider is the perfect choice for a weekend companion and is sure to please.

We’re excited to be able to help fill your beer needs now and in the future.  If you’ve got any beer suggestions or ideas, or any feedback, we would love to hear it!  Keep an eye out for more emails in the future with updates about events, new beers, new kegs, and more!  If you’d like daily updates and information about kegs as they’re tapped, make sure to like us on Facebook or follow us on Twitter.

Thanks again,

Thanks to everyone who joined us for our IPA day tasting this past Thursday!  We had fun celebrating the IPA while introducing people to a few IPAs they might not have tried before.  Natty Greene’s and Anchor were surprises for many people.

Join us this upcoming Thursday, August 14th, from 5-7 PM for a tasting featuring Reds and Ambers.  This was originally planned for last week, but IPA day caused us to shift our focus at the last minute.  Reds and Ambers make the perfect transition beer for the end of summer and beginning of fall.  We’ll have a selection of regional fan favorites for your tasting pleasure, so be sure to stop by.

This week brought us the very first bottle from Charleston newcomers Freehouse Brewery.  They’ve been brewing delicious all organic beer for a few months including the now bottled Ashley Farmhouse.  This bottle conditioned Farmhouse ale features a yeast-driven tartness with hints of rye spiciness and hops.  Ashley Farmhouse was certified organic by Clemson University.

We’re excited to be able to help fill your beer needs now and in the future.  If you’ve got any beer suggestions or ideas, or any feedback, we would love to hear it!  Keep an eye out for more emails in the future with updates about events, new beers, new kegs, and more!  If you’d like daily updates and information about kegs as they’re tapped, make sure to like us on Facebook or follow us on Twitter.

Thanks to everyone who joined us for our Pale Ale tasting this past Thursday!  We thought it would be a fun chance to get back to our roots.  Several people enjoyed revisiting several brews they hadn’t had in years.

Join us this upcoming Thursday, August 7th, from 5:30-7:30 PM for a tasting featuring Reds and Ambers.  After our Pale Ale tasting, we wanted to continue to revisit old classics.  Reds and Ambers make the perfect transition beer for the end of summer and beginning of fall.  We’ll have a selection of regional fan favorites for your tasting pleasure, so be sure to stop by.

This week marked the return of several popular fall releases, including Sierra Nevada‘s Flipside Red IPA.  It was originally released last year as a seasonal alongside their Tumbler but was so incredibly popular that they’re no longer brewing Tumbler.  Flipside features a solid malt backbone alongside Citra, Simcoe, and Centennial hops.  If you’re looking for a perfect between seasons IPA that will carry you through fall, look no further than Flipside.

We’re excited to be able to help fill your beer needs now and in the future.  If you’ve got any beer suggestions or ideas, or any feedback, we would love to hear it!  Keep an eye out for more emails in the future with updates about events, new beers, new kegs, and more!  If you’d like daily updates and information about kegs as they’re tapped, make sure to like us on Facebook or follow us on Twitter.

Thanks to everyone who joined us for our Belgian-style Tripel tasting this past Thursday!  Fan favorite Victory Golden Monkey had some stiff competition, especially by Thirsty Dog Cerberus.  All four selections showed just how different Tripels can be.

Join us this upcoming Thursday, July 31st, from 5-7 PM for a Pale Ale tasting!  Pale Ales are a classic style that can have a lot of variance in terms of hoppiness.  If you’re looking for something that can satisfy a newcomer and a hophead, Pale Ales are a great middle ground.  We’ll have both new and old school Pale Ales that feature different hop profiles and methods of hopping.

This week brought us some of the first bottles from River Rat Brewing in Columbia, SC!  This great new South Carolina brewery was founded last year and has been brewing delicious beer ever since.  We have two of their five year-round brews, Moncks Corner Abbey Ale and their Double IPA.  Be on the lookout for the rest of their great labels!

Thanks to everyone who came out for our Pilsner tasting this past Thursday!  We tasted two Czech style and two German style Pilsners for the end of the summer.  Mama’s Little Yella Pils by Oskar Blues was hands down the fan favorite.

Join us this upcoming Thursday, July 24th, from 5-7 PM for a tasting featuring Belgian style Tripels.  Tripels have been a very popular style since our opening and have some amazing flavors.  We thought now would be a great time to introduce more people to the style.  We’ll have a mixture of both new arrivals and fan favorites for everyone to try.

This week brought us the “full house” from Big Boss Brewing out of Raleigh, North Carolina!  Three of their labels are now available on our shelves and we don’t think you’ll be disappointed.  If you’re a hop head, be on the lookout for their High Roller IPA and Hell’s Belle Belgian Pale Ale.  We’re excited for the arrival of the rest of their labels and hope you’ll help us give them a warm welcome!

We hope everyone is ready to continue tasting this week!  Join us this upcoming Thursday, July 17th, from 5-7 PM for a Pilsner tasting.  We’re still in the middle of the summer and wanted to share some of our favorite refreshing Pilsners to help everyone beat the heat.  We’ve got some delicious classics as well as some new releases that really shine this time of year.

If you’re looking for plans for next weekend, our good friends out at Quest Brewing are having their 1st anniversary bash from 1-9 PM on Saturday, July 19th.  They’re releasing a new brew every hour along with a few other special treats.  We can’t wait to see what the future holds for them!

If you’re a saison fan, we brought in Dogfish Head‘s Saison du BUFF this week and it’s one you don’t want to miss.  Saison du BUFF was originally brewed as a collaboration between DogfishStone, and Victory where all 3 of them brewed the same saison using the same recipe and ingredients.  Parsley, sage, rosemary, and thyme are the main spices present in the beer and they create a unique flavor.

We’re excited to be able to help fill your beer needs now and in the future.  If you’ve got any beer suggestions or ideas, or any feedback, we would love to hear it!  Keep an eye out for more emails in the future with updates about events, new beers, new kegs, and more!  If you’d like daily updates and information about kegs as they’re tapped, make sure to like us on Facebook or follow us on Twitter.

Thanks to everyone for all of the support over the past two years!  We’re extremely thankful that we’ve been able to continue to move forward and it’s thanks to all of you!  Today is our way of saying thank you to everyone.

If you’re still in town this weekend, our 2nd anniversary party is TODAY from 2-6 PM!  Join us at Crafted for a tap takeover featuring Quest Brewing, who also happens to be gearing up for their first anniversary.  They’ve helped us come up with an amazing lineup that is sure to please everyone.  We’ve also enlisted the help of Simpsonville’s own Mad Cuban Cafe for a few tasty treats.  Make sure you grab a ticket when you get to the event because we’re going to be giving away door prizes every 15 minutes until the raffle drawing at 6 PM.  You have to be at the store to win the door prizes, but not to win the raffle.  We’ve also got free glassware with every purchase during the event while supplies last.  We hope you’re all as excited as we are – we can’t wait to see everyone this afternoon!

Our next tasting will be Thursday, July 17th, instead of the upcoming July 10th.  With everyone in 4th of July and anniversary party recovery mode, we want to give people a chance to get back in to the swing of things.

We’re excited to be able to help fill your beer needs now and in the future.  If you’ve got any beer suggestions or ideas, or any feedback, we would love to hear it!  Keep an eye out for more emails in the future with updates about events, new beers, new kegs, and more!  If you’d like daily updates and information about kegs as they’re tapped, make sure to like us on Facebook or follow us on Twitter.
