When I think of rooftop bars in the Upstate area I typically think about downtown Greenville. However, there is a hidden gem located in the heart of downtown Greer. Blue Ridge Brewing Company originally opened its doors in Greenville in 1995, and relocated to Greer almost two decades later. Between handcrafted drinks and exquisite cuisine, this place is something to be sought after.
The first level of the brewing company is a large, open, swanky room that is perfect for an intimidate date night. Once you make your way upstairs, you’ll find their phenomenal rooftop. Between the cozy corner booths and oversized umbrellas, this rooftop makes you feel like you’re mere miles from the beach. The perfect place to hang by the bar and enjoy the view or grab a mid-afternoon bite with co-workers.
Besides the visual appeal, I also love the diversity of Blue Ridge Brewing Company. I feel like several brewing companies only serve the beer that they brew in house. However, here you have your pick of anything from domestics to sangria to margaritas! Plus their food is equally diverse. Hand-tossed pizza, sizzling steak, fresh seafood, and good ole’ southern BBQ. The menu has something special to please everyone’s appetite.
I’m a big believer that you don’t have to follow the mainstream to find the best that life has to offer. I love the hustle and bustle of a big city, but sometimes it’s nice to take a break and enjoy what’s sitting in your own backyard. So, the next time that you are wanting to add a little spice in your usual plans, explore Blue Ridge Brewing Company and I promise you won’t regret it!
