Starting Wednesday, Greenville’s Brewery 85 is re-initiating its #HUNT4B85 campaign to lead up to its Columbia market launch this fall. Every Wednesday afternoon, they will tweet a picture of a Columbia location. The first person to correctly respond with the name of the location (and use the hashtag #Hunt4B85) will win a free Brewery 85 glass. What a nice way to get us ready for some of their tasty beers!
Saturday, Aug. 2 is Mead Day, and Bet Mar Liquid Hobby Shop is celebrating by giving away copies of this year’s mead recipe and a taste of mead. If you’re into beer but want to go dig even deeper into alcoholic beverages history, you should check this out.
Lots of media outlets were at River Rat Brewery last Wednesday as they fired up their auto-bottling line (the first of its kind in Columbia) to send bottles of their beers out to stores. Their beers are now available in stores. I saw one in the wild at a party in Irmo but got there too late to grab one for myself. They’re so good they go fast!
In the only bit of bad beer news this week, it looks like Stone Brewing has decided to pass on North and South Carolina as the location for its East Coast brewery, most likely because of locations in Ohio and Virginia being more centrally located for distribution. Stone has started an Indiegogo campaign to raise money for the Eastern brewery plus another in Berlin, with lots of collaborative brews for the perks. While the snub is disappointing, the Stone Law that was passed here to make way for a brewery like Stone is still the best thing to happen to South Carolina breweries since the Pint Law and will only help nurture more great local beer.
