Helping put the beer in Beer Company..

It’s A Great Time to Brew   I’m sure you’ve noticed all the breweries opening in South Carolina, and across the country. The number of American breweries has more than doubled since we first opened back in 2014 and, needless to say, the diversity of beer choices is even greater. We’ve visited hundreds of breweries over the years and it makes every trip more fulfilling to drink local beer. In the past five years alone, we’ve had roughly 3000 different beers on draft and that’s only the tip of the iceberg. It’s such an exciting time to be a beer lover!  I get especially excited after attending Craft Brewer’s Conference each year, where I get to learn from fellow awesome brewers that have the same drive for knowledge and interest in technological advancements. The scientific developments and analytical data in hop breeding, oil extraction, brewhouse efficiencies, malting science, blending techniques, and more are pushing brewers to up their game to produce some really amazing beers. For example, in 2009 U.S. Craft Brewers used a total of only 88 varieties of hops. Because of the hard work of hop geneticists breeding new varieties, the number of varieties is now 154, providing us with the full spectrum of juicy, dank flavors!  Sure, the industry is starting to get crowded, but thanks to the huge knowledge base now available to brewers and the constant push for more science and research, everyone has an unlimited number of tools available to brew better beer.                                              More Breweries = More Science = Better Beers                                                                                                                                                 Cheers,                                                                                                                                                 Matt Bowes    PS.. We’re still aiming at September to have the new brewery open. Til then, come have a beer with us at our current spot.

The Southern Growl Beer Company

Our new brewery and restaurant has been in planning since early in 2017. Tons of thought went into designing this new spot with our awesome Greer community in mind. It’s got 4x more indoor room for fun and activities like eating incredible food and drinking amazing beers. Plus, we are soo excited to have plenty of space outside to enjoy the beautiful weather and for our awesome events on the lawn.

We’ve got a Deutsche Beverage brewhouse with our names on it that we’ll be using to show our style to the beer world. Still 60 taps cause we’ve got lots of friends brewing remarkable beers too.

…and we’ll have plenty of parking.

Thanks for 5 years of support. You’re amazing. We love you. Come have a beer and stay in touch at our current location:

6 S. Buncombe Rd.

Stay Excited,

Matt & Anna Bowes
