What about us? I’m a USAF veteran from a border town in Northeast NY and my wife is from Montreal, Canada. We moved to the Charlotte-metro area in 2017 for work and eventually settled in Fort Mill, SC in 2020. We love it here and will most likely retire in the Carolinas!
MAKE FRIENDS - SUPPORT LOCAL
Covid made it difficult to meet people, and working remotely didn’t help. We like brewery hopping on weekends and trying new spots. You could also call us foodies. It’s way more fun to visit places with friends and to learn about new places from them; however, social distancing put a damper on most of those plans.
We noticed businesses were taking a beating. We like the idea of supporting local. With so many fantastic breweries around the area, we thought they could use some assistance with foot traffic. I decided to create a social club based around craft beer.
In May 2022, Carolina Breweries Club was born. It was established to meet people and to support local breweries. We have since met some incredible people through the club, both members and business owners alike, who have become good friends. I was asked to expand the club to include wine and spirits which I did. The Carolina Breweries Club is now known as a social drinker’s club. We are made up of enthusiasts of Carolina-made Craft Beer, Wine, and Spirits and exclusively promote these products.
In Fall 2022, the club picked up. New members were joining in bunches and new business partners were coming on board weekly. I started to think about branding and started a separate print-on-demand apparel shop to manufacture Carolina Breweries Club t-shirts. It did fairly well.
I recently decided to combine the Carolina Breweries Club with Carolina T-Shirts, my new apparel shop. I’ll soon be expanding what I offer. You’ll be able to get Carolina Breweries Club merchandise there, as well as other items.
Carolina Breweries Club now covers the Carolinas. We have over 900 members and around 70 business partners across these two great States. If you’re a Carolina resident over the age of 21, you should check out the club at the links below.
It’s fun – It’s FREE!
If you see my wife and I out there, come say hello. We’re always looking to make new friends, get new club members, and find new business partners. We think we’re pretty fun to hang out with, too!
