Went here last night (however it is called The Taproom now) after work. This bar is owned by RJ Rockers now and serves as a place to try just about all of the beers they offer on tap. The inside is quite large and open with couches and a stage for performances/karoke. The selection here is quite good considering with approximately 30 taps and quite a few bottled beers to choose from. On Wednesday’s they have specials on quite a few of the beers they have on tap as well. Even though I did not eat here, you can order food from Sonny’s Brick-Oven Pizza down the street and they will deliver it for free. Great place to hang out in Spartanburg after a long day at work, but if you go at night, be prepared for a college bar/dance club atmosphere.

This is easily the best place to drink a quality beer in Spartanburg that I know of. It’s really laid back most of the time. The bartender, who could be the owner for all I know, was extrememly nice and really has a passion for expanding the beer scene in his area. He made very friendly beer related bander with me throughout the night without being intrusive. The place is located in a shopping center, but once inside it really feels like any old dive bar, just with a very good selection of beer. Sample platters are available of any draught beer this is the best place to come try some SC beer in Spartanburg. Many bottles which are hard to find anywhere else in town are availalbe here. There was a horrible, horrible cover duo playing for a little while on the night I was there. If I’m ever in Spartanburg again, this is where I’m gonna be. [October 27,2007] I actually ate here this time, so I can give you this advice: do not eat here. They have 7 different pizzas with eclectic toppings ( I had the smoked salmon pizza) and no substitutions are allowed. Such a limited, efficient selection is fine by me. What I did not like is the fact that it is the smallest, thinnest, 12 dollar pizza in America. I can’t hold it against them because like I said, they are focused only on providing good beer. But rest assured, I will eat before I stop by next time.
