Nestled in the heart of downtown Traveler’s Rest is the Swamp Rabbit Brewery. Swamp Rabbit has been serving made in house brews to the people of T.R. for three years now and a celebration was definitely in order! The big party was held on March 25 and people were there all day long celebrating the brewery with some insanely sweet deals.
At Swamp Rabbit there are six brews on tap that are made right there on site. These brews include pale ales, lagers, and even a German-style Oktoberfest brew. If you’re a connoisseur of all things beer, then you know that sometimes you have to really pay for the good stuff. Fortunately, on the day of the celebration all brews were $5 a pop! You could try a little of this and a little of that, and still not break the bank! How awesome is it that they decided to treat their customers to a little penny saving on their anniversary?!
Rule of thumb for a lot of local breweries is BYOF (Bring Your Own Food) or if you’re really lucky…they’ll have a food truck parked nearby for you. Swamp Rabbit is no exception to either one of these rules! On any normal given night you can pick up a pie from Sidewall and walk on over to the brewery and enjoy your pizza there or they might have one of their usual food trucks parked for you to try. On the day of their anniversary celebration it was food truck paradise; three food trucks parked out back all day long for the party-goers. Automatic Taco, Keepin’ It Fresh, and Ellada Kouzina were there to feed the great people of Traveler’s Rest between drinks.
Fresh food, great beer, and did I mention the music? Premiere Party Entertainment had DJ Austyn playing only the most dance worthy music during the celebration…I may or may not have participated in a 9 minute cupid shuffle dance competition. To say that this anniversary party was a good time is an understatement. If you live in the Greenville area I definitely recommend you giving Swamp Rabbit Brewery a try the next time you’re wanting something different to do on a Saturday afternoon. Also be on the lookout for their next anniversary party…if this was just for their 3rd year I can’t wait to see what year 4 looks like.
