Celebrate Your Outdoor Feats at Greenville’s Quest Brewing Co.

After a long day of hiking or mountain biking in the ​Upstate, there’s no better reward for your hard-earned sweat than a celebratory beer.

You won’t have to venture far to find a tall, frothy cold one. ​Greenville now boasts a number of microbreweries producing top-quality, handcrafted beer.

If you’re interested in visiting several breweries in the same day, tours are offered on some Saturdays.

Among the breweries you can visit is newcomer Quest Brewing C​ompany near the Greenville Downtown Airport.

Opened in the summer of 2013, the company continues to expand its selection of ales, stouts and porters and now features four core brands, seasonal offerings and a series of rare and hard-to-come-by barrel-aged beer.

Longtime brewmaster Don Richardson, formerly of Boulder Beer Co. in Colorado and Cottonwood Brewery in North Carolina, teamed up with IT guy Andrew Watts, a craft beer fan and home brewer, to start the business.

They came up with the name “Quest” to honor Greenville’s passion for adventure.

“People in Greenville are always on some kind of quest,” Watts said. “Whether it is to bike the entire ​GHS Swamp Rabbit Trail or hike ​Table Rock, there is a very adventurous spirit here. We wanted to embrace that.”

Quest’s casual, friendly taproom is a great spot to celebrate your outdoor triumphs. It’s open from 4 to 8 p.m. Tuesday and Wednesday, 4 to 9 p.m. Thursday, 3 to 9 p.m. Friday and noon to 9 p.m. Saturday. Brewery tours are offered on a first-come, first-served basis every Saturday at 1, 2, 3 and 4 p.m.

Thursday evenings from 6 to 9, Quest hosts a concert series featuring local musicians. For the concert schedule and what’s currently on tap, check the schedule ​here.
