First, let’s gather round for a brief history lesson: In 2013, former governor Nikki Haley signed both the Pint Law and the Stone Law, which helped fuel the growth for breweries in South Carolina and here at home in the Upstate. Today, the Upstate is home to seven breweries/brewpubs and produces roughly 1.25M gallons of beer annually (yeah, that’s a lot of beer).
So how do we celebrate our beloved breweries? Craft Beer Week of course. A tradition that started in 2014, and consists of a week full of beer-centric events. Oh, did I forget to mention it’s this week? Check out the list of events here, grab your best beer drinking pals, and we’ll see you there.
