Beer Trip #2-Stop #2-Blue Ridge Brewing Company

The brewery/restaurant
Next stop was for lunch and a flight at Blue Ridge Brewing Company in downtown Greenville, SC at 217 North Main Street. A beautiful location in the heart of lovely downtown Greenville, we could see the brewery through the large window at the front of the building. This was the first time we've seen an actual working brewery right in the midst of the restaurant! We sat down at a booth and started chatting with the friendliest waiter we've ever met, Johnny. No joke! He described the beers in the flight and recommended we also try their Little Willie barleywine. He was absolutely right as the barleywine was delicious! We ordered lunch which consisted of huge portions at a great price. After we mentioned our blog to Johnny, he went to find Johannes Baddorf the Brewmaster. Johannes stopped by and chatted with us about the beers and went back to work. Right in the middle of the lunch crowd, Johannes worked the mash and then took time for some photos. If you're looking for a very reasonably priced meal with great beer, look no further than Blue Ridge Brewing Company. Ask for Johnny, world's friendliest waiter, and tell him we sent you!
