Our reply to this article can be found below:

‘The initial reaction to the article may come off as Quest having a ‘negative’ view of the bill.  That is far from the truth.  Only a small portion of the interview was quoted.  Quest Brewing Company appreciates the help and support of all involved in the miracle that was accomplished by getting this bill passed in such a short amount of time.   We actively participated in rallying support for the passage of this bill.  It is truly a historic step for the craft brewing industry in our state.  The attention that our industry is getting from our elected officials can only help our efforts to make South Carolina a craft brewery destination.

However, we fully endorse the statements as quoted in the article.  Quest takes pride in every beer we produce.  We do not use added preservatives, adjuncts, extracts, or any other ingredient that does not meet our ethical standards.  In order for us to serve food, we would be governed by those same company principles.  This is why we have no present interest in being part of the food service industry.  We do appreciate that (with the passage of this bill) South Carolina breweries now have more options.  We were simply pointing out a detail in the current model that REQUIRES food service in order to loosen market restrictions.  

Perhaps this bill will be changed by an amendment or a future bill.  Perhaps this bill will attract a large, west coast brewery that we would welcome as neighbors with open arms.  But in its current form, this bill does not lead us to change our brewery’s current business operations.’
