Brewery 85 Construction Update and Location Finally Announced

In a final contest last week, Brewery 85 President Will McCameron at last disclosed the address for his new, under construction brewing facility: 6 Whitlee Court, Greenville.

The contest winners, one each from Facebook and Twitter, will receive Brewery 85 swag later on. The FB winner was Harvin Bedenbaugh and the Twitter winner was a lay-about, beer blogger with too much time on his hands, or so I'm told.

6 Whitlee Court before. Eager to take the "after" shot.

On my visit, Will gave me a brief tour, trying not to interfere with the workers busily painting and prepping the floor. Some pix below. He is hoping for a December opening and I hope that he makes it; eager to try his first offering which he says will be in the German style, since he spent several months in Munich soaking up (so to speak) their brewing styles.

We're looking at over 10,000 sq. ft of brewing space.

Tasting room located way back over there in the right rear corner.

Will also plans to turn this space into an outdoor beer garden, Munich style, with hop plant arbors for shade.

They are actually brewing beer off-site; here Will is offering me some Yeoman's
American Brown ale  at the BrewHaHa in Anderson.
You can read more about Brewery 85 and other breweries in the Greenville community, as well as the status of local bottle shops and growler refill stations in this article by Eric Connor in the Greenville News:

Hoping to make it to the Asheville Brewfest today!!
