Quest Announces New Packaging

Andrew  |  November 21

Nov 21, 2017 … Quest Brewing Company has converted to cardboard boxes for all of its 12 oz canned products. This change will help the South Carolina microbrewery increase shelf presence and brand recognition. Quest is gearing up for more presence in the high-volume retail sector and wanted to increase marketing efforts in order to help facilitate sales growth.
“We felt like we needed to become even more environmentally-friendly after seeing sales trends once glass became non-recycled in our home market.” Quest’s Andrew Watts stated. “Our cardboard boxes are reusable and recyclable. We know our consumers care about how their purchases effect the environment.”
Quest Brewing Co. was founded in 2013 by Don Richardson and Andrew Watts in Greenville, SC. Quest has been met with much success in the four plus years of operation by garnering national attention from the likes of USA Today, Beer Advocate, and Southern Living. In 2016, Quest won a World Beer Cup Gold Medal for Ponce Cucumber Jalapeno Saison. Quest beer is currently distributed throughout North Carolina, South Carolina, and Georgia in draft and 12 oz. cans.

Old Mill Brewpub Relief Benefit

Andrew  |  November 4

Join us for a night of live music, food trucks and a new beer release with all proceeds going to our good friends at Old Mill Brewpub. Old Mill suffered major damages from the recent Midlands Flooding and they are currently trying rebuild their brewery and restaurant. We asked Head Brewer Matt Rodgers how we could help and he jumped at the opportunity to brew a Collaboration beer with us. Matt and Don came up with a recipe for a session-able Oatmeal Amber. The new beer is born called “1000 Year Beer” named from the thousand year flooding that occurred in our home state.

Live Music with Jeff Chandler and Charles Hedgepath starts at 6:30, Automatic Taco and DobbieQ will be serving up dinner. Matt and a guest bartender from Old Mill will be here helping us sling lots of good beer for a good cause.

We will also have a silent auction with lots of cool items so make sure to check that out, all proceeds go to Old Mill.

Make plans to come out and help us support our neighbors through some tough times. Cheers!
