Cheers, Greenvillians. It’s officially time to celebrate #DrinkUpGreenville. From cold craft brews to cocktails, we’re honoring our beverage community this month.

Here’s where we’re celebrating:

Indaco, 40 W Broad St., Greenville

Stop by one of Greenville’s newest restaurants to sip on the “Go Compresa on the Plane” — made with Elijah Craig, strawberry-infused Aperol, house-made strawberry vinaigrette, Montenegro, and basil.

Lewis Barbecue, 214 Rutherford St., Greenville

This Texas-style barbecue spot just dropped a new summer cocktail — the “Drink Up Julep” is a twist on Lewis’ “Smoky Peach Julep” filled with SC peaches.

Thomas Creek recently dropped its collab IPA with The Community Tap called the “Trifecta IPA” — a full bodied American IPA brewed with Citra hops with a potent nose of citrus and grapefruit notes. Plus, RSVP to celebrate Christmas in July at the brewery’s free summer celebration.

Keipi, 1320 Hampton Ave. Ext., Greenville

If you prefer wine, stop by Keipi on Wednesday when glasses are half-price, plus ask about their special summer selection.
