Cheers, GVL. It’s officially #DrinkUpGreenville week. From cold brews to cocktails, we’re celebrating our beverage community all week long.
Here are 10+ drink specials to start sippin’:
Southernside Brewing Co., 25 Delano Dr. | @southernside_brewing
You’ve had a cocktail, but what about a “beertail?” Southernside is serving up five beertails, each made with one of their in-house brews + a spirit, like the Unity Park Beer-garita, featuring Unity Park (Cream) Ale, simple syrup, lime, orange juice, and Lunazul Blanco tequila. Also try The Black Pearl, Whiskey Sour, Trust Your Fate, and Most Known Unknown.
Group Therapy Pub and Playground, 320 Falls St., Ste. G | @grouptherapy.fun
Get your pub + play on with Undisclosed Girl Scout Cookie, a cocktail that tastes like a coconut cookie or go for all the flavor of a classic cocktail minus the alcohol with the non-alcoholic Old Fashioned.
Good Enough Coffee Company, locations vary | @coffeethatsgoodenough
Grab a cold brew blend of Rwandan + Colombian coffee or a cascara, a fruity, hibiscus-like iced tea made from the dried coffee cherry (not the seed) — visit their tent at the Greer Farmers Market Tues., July 26 or the Travelers Rest Farmers Market on Sat., July 30.
Mountain Goat Coffee, 120 Shaw St. | @mtngoatgvl
Start your day with a throwback to the 1950s with a modern twist — an Orange Julius Cold Brew: house-made cold brew made with Methodical Coffee’s “Pink Lady” Beans, sweetened with Mountain Goat’s signature “Old Fashioned” simple syrup (an infusion made with fresh orange juice and zest, cinnamon and rosemary), and topped with a scoop of Clare’s Creamery “Orangesicle” ice cream.
Wrap the day with a Pomegranate Rosé, featuring a 2021 “Côtes de Thau” french rosé and topped it with a splash of sparkling pomegranate juice + two house-made ice cubes that melt and disperse fresh berries and rose petals as you enjoy this summer sipper.
Eagle Mountain Winery, 2330 SC-11, Travelers Rest | @eaglemountainwinery
Celebrate Eagle Mountain’s first anniversary + Drink Up Week with two new wines: A Blanc de Blanc Sparkling Wine and a Rose of Pinot Noir. The winery will donate $2 to Habitat for Humanity for every bottle sold of Blanc de Blanc + $2 to Cancer Survivor’s Alliance Park for every bottle sold of the Rose of Pinot Noir.
You don’t need a sunrise to enjoy some tequila. Cool off with the 21 Seeds Tequila Valencia Orange Hibiscus Agua Fresca, shaken + garnished with fresh lime.
AC Hotel by Marriott Greenville, 315 S. Main St. | @achotel
Master Mixologist Baileigh Wilson’s created three new cocktails to try at each of the hotel’s bars — all of which are made with Six & Twenty Distillery double-made gin:
Catch views of downtown Greenville while sipping on the Ballroom Spritz

Six & Twenty Distillery, 556 Perry Ave., B103 | @sixandtwenty
Toast to Drink Up Week with five new cocktails, each made with a different Six & Twenty spirit, like Tuesday’s “No Vacancy,” made with Six & Twenty’s Old Money Whiskey, house grenadine, lemon, mint, and campari. Get a taste of the Lavender Lemon Drop on Monday, Palmetto Peach Lemonade on Wednesday, the Oak & Honey Old Fashioned on Thursday, the Carolina Colada on Friday, and all five on Saturday.
Looking for a non-alcoholic way to cool off in the summer heat? Sip on one of Saltwater Kitchen’s infused waters, with flavors like Blueberry Lime Mint, Lemon Peach + Strawberry Basil — each carafe is $10 and serves four people.
Wellborn Winery, 254 Mush Creek Rd., Travelers Rest | @wellbornwinery
Celebrate Drink Up week + Wellborn Winery’s fifth year with live music from the 1950s-1970s featuring Bobby Blakely and his buddy “Elvis” Sat., July 30 from 3:30-5:30 pm. Plus, enjoy their July special: Buy one bottle of rosé, + get the second half off.
Distinct Cider Room, 46 Lois Ave., Unit H | @distinctciderroom
Snag a summer sipper from Greenville’s first cider tap room, the cider mule in a mason jar — plus, enjoy 4-for-$4 cider flights.
Iron Hill Brewery, 741 Haywood Rd. | @ironhillbrewery
Iron Hill’s pouring up Dankonia, a New England-style hazy IPA with notes of pineapple, tropical fruits, and hops.
Brew up a cup of Methodical Coffee at home by buying a bag from the Six & Main shop.
