Burning Blush Has a Grand Grand Opening

Burning Blush Brewery Grand Opening is officially over but you can still go visit. Weather for the opening day was ideal so the crowd took advantage of the large beer garden area benches conveniently located near the food truck.
You knew it was an official opening cause Cuzzin Adam Willier was there, along with fellow Thomas Creek brewers; Jared Tuttle from Liability Brewing Co. and Eric Boice from Iron Hill Brewery & Restaurant plus representatives from White Labs Kitchen & Tap

Whit Lanning's Helles was very popular as was the porter. I was impressed with the Pecking Order Hierarchy Vienna Lager and the Square Your Luck Juicy IPA was dry-hopped goodness! 

A grand, Grand Opening and I foresee many happy hours will be spent there by craft beer lovers, families and friends, especially next year when the warm weather returns

Congratulations again to Whit and crew for a spectacular kick-off!

Attention GVille Shoppers!!

If you like sipping beer while doing your holiday shopping (and who doesn't) here's an opportunity to do just that:

And if you want to just have a beer, Quest Brewing Company is releasing YuYum Pecan Porter today, which is sorta holiday like.... it's got pecans and so does pecan pie which is one of my fave holiday treats!

This weekend will have lots of similar activities happening; contact your favorite breweries, pie shops and gift stores for their scheduled events.

Restaurants and Craft Beer: Win-Win

As is well known, no Sunday is complete without a new list to peruse, in this case, restaurants that serve craft beer. I can personally attest to 4 of the 10’s accuracy. How many for you?

Greenville's Newest Brewery, Tetrad Opens Saturday

Had a delightful meetup with John Bucher of Tetrad Brewing Co. today, a calm afternoon before the tumult and shouting of their grand opening this Saturday (details below). My first visit and I was quite impressed with the venue... from the sparkling stainless lining one wall to the pristine tap line to all the repurposed wood, it's a very pleasant environment in which to hang out and have a beer or three... actually, come Saturday you can have four of their beers. Good possibility that you've had a taste already as they have done several collabs with our local breweries while awaiting completion of theirs.

A brief (hopefully) set back is the lack of final signage which hasn't come through in time. John says that there will be temporary banners easily visible from Stone and of course, the Half Moon shop upstairs is a huge landmark.

If you are planning on attending (and you know you should), there are three parking areas you'll have access to alongside the building and one down by the neighboring bar.

Pleased To Report Craft Beer Is Alive And Well In North East

Or, what I did on my recent trip through Maine and Vermont, with a brief stop in Mass.

Why, yes, I am writing about my recent research jaunt through MA, ME and VT. Thanks for asking. It’s taking some time cause we stopped in on 22 breweries. For some unexplained reason my notes don’t seem as cogent as when I made them.

However I will persevere through final editing.

Meanwhile, some pretty pictures for you:

More to come!! Cheers.

Anniversary #1 at Liability Brewing, Greenville SC

Minor quandary yesterday: CBD oil or craft beer?
Meanwhile, the band played on!
And a brewer from Fullsteam showed up.
All Anniversary parties should be this much fun!

New Groove Artisan Brewery Turns 2

Enjoy celebrating local breweries' birthdays? Of course you do. Lucky for you, there's one tomorrow, so heads up!

Actually, it's truly amazing how quickly a year goes by if you're having beer-drinking fun. Such is the case with New Groove Artisan Brewery which turns 2 tomorrow. Last year's party was a real hoot, no reason to think this year's won't be the same. Go there.

Oh, some fun pix below from their 1th.

#FunkCollective Happy Faces

I was planning on posting the remaining photos from the Birds Fly South Funk Collective event but FB is non-cooperative today. Hacked by the Russians??
Anyway, I’ll do it when things return to business as usual.

So it appears that FB has made the appropriate repairs and now videos and pictures are publishable again.
I have compiled a collection of images from the #FunkCollective fun time so, in no particular order, relive those exciting moments:

Until next year, Cheers!!
