If you’re the sort that pays attention to the pub lineup, you might have noticed a new name joining the draft. From the printed beer list at American Grocery to the scrawled chalkboard at Barley’s, Quest Brewery has been getting around. You could attribute this warm welcome to local pride—after all, Quest beer is brewed right here in Greenville—but truth is, Quest beer is just really, really good.
When an award-winning brewmaster and an avid home brewer crossed paths chasing the same dream, Quest Brewing Co. was born. In July 2013, Don Richardson and Andrew Watts celebrated the grand opening of their microbrewery. They were as intentional about choosing Greenville as they are about crafting their beer. The Upstate is defined by a passionate, adventurous spirit—a perfect pairing, they felt, to Quest’s bold, experimental, American- and Belgian-style beers.
It’s been well-established that drinking beer makes you feel good. But when you drink Quest, you also get to feel good about the beer you’re drinking. Quest is committed to reducing their carbon impact, strengthening the local economy, and locally sourcing goods whenever possible. For example, that Kaldi Coffee Stout you’re sipping? It’s made with beans from West End Coffee Company.
You can try that coffee stout (or another fine Quest beer) around town or right from the source. Quest’s taproom is open to the public, featuring a concert every Thursday night, brewery tours on Saturday afternoons, and good times all the time. Fill your growler. Raise your glass. Find your Quest.
