Happy International Beer Day, GVL. 🍻 Greenville’s craft beer scene has continued to grow over the last few years and we can’t say we’re complaining.

To help you get in the mood to celebrate, we put together a list of some of our local breweries.


Disclaimer: Certain places may or may not be open or have modified hours because of COVID-19. Also a reminder that, per Gov. Henry McMaster’s orders, restaurants + bars are now required to follow the AccelerateSC guidelines. Guidelines include: six foot spacing between tables, no standing or congregating in bar areas, maximum parties of eight people, + mask requirements for employees and customers. Review the full guidelines here. This is also not a comprehensive list of every single brewery in Greenville/the Upstate area.
