New Belgiums' 25th Birthday Bicycle

Upstate Craft Beer Co., in Greenville, was the sight for a New Belgium tap takeover and the raffling of a custom-made NB bicycle in honor of the occasion. 6 collaboration beers to try and each purchase got you a raffle ticket. And finally, at 7:30, the winning ticket was drawn and the winner, who just moved to Gville six days prior, claimed the bike for his own, adding a victory lap in the parking lot. Great time was had by all, aided of course by good beer, good music from The Passing Scene group and the fun ambiance that inhabits the Clausen Bakery Buildings latest incarnation, Upstate Craft Beer.

Some photos below attempting to capture all the festivities.

The beer menu for the tap takeover.

Tasting flight of 4 of 6. All collaborations.

Wes Gibson, New Belgium Beer Ranger, with the prize!!

Two of the six beers were outside only, the Sour and Belgian Pale.

The crowd starts to build outside; inside was packed.

Good music, many of it original but included Grateful Dead pleasing tunes.

The party carries on, despite heat and some threat of rain.

Calling the winning numbers.

Correct numbers??
The Winner!! "RW"  on his first visit to Upstate.
