The 20-some breweries in and around town are adding to the city’s cool factor.
When Southerners think of beer, they think of Asheville, which has long had the most breweries per capita regionally (and nearly nationwide). There’s room for other opinions, though. Many think of Greenville as Asheville’s slightly older, more mature cousin that’s now becoming a sought-after destination. We even named it The South’s Best City on the Rise in March!
Much has changed since Greenville opened its first craft brewery in 1998, and trust us: The 20-some breweries in and around town are adding to the city’s cool factor today. If you’re visiting the area, let cold beer cool you off on hot days in any of the taprooms below. Staying a while? Snag a four-pack or crowler to take with you on any of the area’s nearby trails.

For one thing, besties and brewery owners John Bucher and Chad Tynings would have no business without four key ingredients—hops, grain, yeast, and water—and secondly, the duo has lived in four corners of this country, including north in Alaska, west in Oregon and Utah, east in New York and Vermont, and finally, south, settled in Greenville. Most importantly to them, they’re both dads to two kids. 2 + 2 = 4, and you get Tetrad, where the motto is “Brew 4 the love.” Their brewing ventures began with a Mr. Beer home-brew kit, which today sits atop a shelf in view of all who visit.
