I've always enjoyed beer and have become much more interested in craft beer over the past few years. And now with some great breweries opening in Greenville, adding a brew tour is the perfect way to visit them! I took the tour last Saturday starting at the Growler Station with Big Jon as our guide. There was a friendly group of folks on our bus as we made our way to Quest. A very cool indoor / outdoor tasting room at Quest where we sampled the IPA and Seasonal brewed with Jalapeño and cucumber. Next up was Brewery 85 where we were greeted by the head brewer/owner and a couple samples of our choice. The have the coolest tiny mason jars they pour samples in and we got a souvenir glass as well. An interesting Sweet Tea sour is on the menu, a nod to the southern drink of choice. After an informative and fun tour we made our way to the last stop at Thomas Creek. This brewery has been in operation for over 10 years and is currently expanding to meet demand. We has 4 generous samples here which were very tasty! One had vanilla which was really good and I have always liked their amber. We hopped back on the bus and made our way back the Growler Station for some more beer chat with "the professor" Big Jon. Such a fun way to spend a Saturday checking out the new and established breweries! If you enjoy good beer and supporting local folks, I highly recommend this tour. In the spirit of honest reviews, I am married to the manager of the Growler Station and learned about the tours thru him. And I will go again with a group of friends because I had a great time!!
