That eventually led to the other international distribu-tions. “Our beers made their way to the Grand Cayman Islands and onto the Royal Caribbean Quantum Class ships through our partnership with renowned Miami chef Michael Schwartz,” he said. Among the product going to China is the brewery’s new AmerIPAck. It’s a half case summer variety pack that debuts two new IPAs --Rattle Trap Red IPA and Snapper Biscuit White IPA . It also includes flagships like Freckle Belly . Meanwhile, Wilson said their test batch sys-tem continues to turnout interesting brews such as a new Czech Pilsner that will also be released this summer. Avondale Brewing is shooting for an August 1 opening date for a new sour bar, said brewer Nate Darnell. It will be an additional tast-ing room dedicated entirely to unique styles like barrel-aged saisons, sour beers and Brett beers.

For all the things we love about our local breweries, the hard truth is that, unless we buy a new shirt or hat every single time we visit, we usually leave empty handed. Art nights change this completely as a craft beer and an engaging instructor might be all you need to unleash your inner artist and take home the perfect piece for your living room wall or mantle. Even further off the creative status quo, some breweries are even offering cooking classes. Look no further than Greenville’s Thomas Creek and their classes in sushi preparation to see the potential in this creative new trend. Sushi.
