Very nice bar right in the middle of beautiful downtown Greenville. Too bad its 30 min away from Clemson.
Incredible tap and bottle selection, way over 100.
What I had/saw: Founder’s Imperial Stout, Terrapin Depth Charge, Oaked Yeti/Espresso Oak Yeti, Rochefort 10, BORIS, Storm King, + much much more.
The waitstaff was friendly, pretty knowledgeable about their selections, and the prices were pretty good (most taps $4-6, BORIS/Storm King were very pricey) Rochefort 10 was $10
I will definitely be returning to this bar, and the good thing is that you can go in, buy a bottle, and take it home, so if your on the go, or you spot something rare, take it to go as well.

A 2-story venue with lots of taps upstairs and even more downstairs. Also carries a large selection of bottles. Rare beers routinely come thru here, as do various special events. I’ve enjoyed beers here with both Sam C. (Dogfish Head) and Greg Koch (Stone), not to mention a good variety of friends and strangers. Friendly atmosphere. Probably THE best craft beer bar in SC.
Visited on a busy Saturday evening. 2-story pub, with dining and a bar on the main floor and another bar with pool tables and games on the second floor. Different selections of beer at the two different bars. Pretty good selection, but the majority of the taps weren’t too exciting for me (being from Charlotte, I was hoping to find a good selection of beers that were unique for SC), but I was surprised and happy to find a Creature Comforts and a Cigar City on tap.
best place in greenville to get beer. honestly, the best selection i’ve seen in a while. only bar outside of New York to carry Brooklyn Blast IPA on tap! not to mention the rest of their great taps. the beer samplers are sweet. pizza is outstanding, and the spinach salad is a great way to start your meal. this place is a must if you find yourself in wonderful greenville, sc.
Clean and nice location. Solid beer selection with lots of seasonals and specials. Great pizza and appetizers. Knowledgeable staff. Can’t imagine there could be any place better than this in Greenville.
A large downtown bar with very nice atmosphere. We sat down at the upstairs bar, which wasn’t the slightest bit busy. In fact, the two of us were the only people there for quite a while. The beer selection is between marginal and good, with enough things I don’t see at home to keep it interesting for me. The service was great, though I suspect the bartender was mostly just bored and looking for someone to talk to. Regardless, I have no complaints.

Similar to my experience with the Asheville Barley’s. Located in Greenville’s pretty hip downtown, packed to the gills on a Friday night. Sidewalk seating is available, which is pretty ideal for drinking way into the wee hours-- more quiet and cool than indoors. Lots of great beer on tap, split between two bars, but you can’t get beer from the upstairs bar if seated downstairs, a real bummer. Attentive service from the wait staff, though the hostess was a bit out of it. Decent pizza. Fun place.

Nice patio space right off of Main St. Inside is kinda crowded downstairs and kinda too sparse upstairs. Nice tap selection and beer list kept close to up to date. Didn’t eat but the menu looked similar to the Knoxville location and pizza around me looked tasty.
Visited here in late June ’09 on a Friday evening. Place was packed - not even able to get a seat at the bar to eat - so I came back later and partook in the upstairs bar. Probably had about 20 - 25 taps upsatirs. Some decent stuff - a few I had not hand - Sierra Nevada Brown Saison and Southern Tier Big Red. Afew other uncommon ones as well - not just your usual micros and imports. One dissapointment though - did not see one tap of a North or South Carolina brewer - not sure whose fault that is - brewer, distributor, establishment or perhaps the consumer? Oh well. Loud, friendly, clean cut crowd who seemed to enjoy their beer - heard someone asking. Worth a stop if in Greenville - a decent little city.

Stopped in for lunch and a brew while in town - kind of an old school decor and vibe - if you’ve ever been in an American brewpub or beer bar that has been around for more than 10 or 15 years, you’ll recognize this vibe immediately - anyway - clearly a very family-friendly establishment - lots of families on my visit - very nice selection of draft beer, ranging from craft staples to a few rarities - far fewer regional beers than I had hoped (two Westbrook and a handful of others) - decent bottle list, plus "vintage" beers that mostly consist of readily available strong beers that just happen to be very old - staff was welcoming, but apparently not sufficient to handle the crowd, as they were not very attentive - when I was done with my beer and food, the bartender shoved the check at me without asking if I needed anything else (I didn’t, but that is not the point) - being a native New Yorker, I am pretty particular about pizza - this was merely decent - kind of dry - the fact that everyone in there besides me was eating their pizza with a fork and knife made the New Yorker in me want to have a heart attack - servers did not seem that well versed in the beer or glassware (I overheard two of them discussing whether or not to pour a Bourbon County Stout into a pint glass), but this can mostly be forgiven - overall, the beer selection is nice, but the service and food make the place lacking for me (perhaps the stuff besides pizza is good) kind of like a not as cool version of Max’s in Baltimore (if you’ve been there, you’ll immediately see why I make the comparison) - I would come back for a beer.
