Lots of news about Greenville's very active brewing community. From Brewery 85 (still in an undisclosed location) to the newest attraction along the Swamp Rabbit trail, soon-to-be Traveler's Rest's own Swamp Rabbit Brewery and Taproom, plenty of buzz to keep up with. I tried to do some of that with a recent video conversation with Don Richardson, Brewmaster and Co-Owner of Quest Brewing Co., which had it's grand opening last month, to much enthusiasm and favorable response from the craft beer-drinking community. I asked Don about the response to all the acclaim.
I brought up the subjects of passion and community, both of which I recognize as vital components within the industry that makes it both fun and successful. Here's his take on it:
Now that all the excitement of the grand opening has died down and the day to day operation of the brewery is underway, I asked Don about his ideas for Quest's future:
The concert schedule in on their website (see the link above) and I see some good music and beer times ahead. Don also mentioned the possibility of a pumpkin Saison coming along soon, so all you pumpkin ale fans can watch for that (and there are a lot of you folks apparently).
So, Don, any final words?
I'm glad you and all the Quest gang are here to add to the vibrant beer-loving scene we all enjoy in the greater Upstate area.
