River Rat Brewery

Booking Dates & Rate


Where the Saluda and Broad Rivers merge, they form the mighty Congaree in ColaTown, SC! River Rat Brewery was founded in 2013 and was named for the three rivers that run through our city, and the working-class men who labored on the canal here more than a century ago. The Congaree, Broad, and Saluda contribute miles of riverfront and were the supplying highways of times long ago. The rivers tell us old stories and history of our state and our capital city.

In their honor, we at River Rat set out to create craft beers that would satisfy anyone after a long day's work. We use only the best ingredients, and test and refine in order to develop complex flavors. What we wound up with was the best beer we've ever tasted — perfectly balanced, refreshingly bold, and deliciously drinkable. If you really want to get to know us, stop into the Rat Cave for the taproom, play with your pup on the deck and green space, or bring the kiddos for a family affair.
