Thirsty Thursday with Palmetto and Birdsong Brewing of the Carolinas
Join us in the wine bar this Thursday, March 23rd from 5 to 7 pm to learn about two new breweries at Southern Season. Palmetto Brewing Company from Charleston, SC who will be featuring their Espresso Porter and Charleston Session IPA and Birdsong Brewing Company from Charlotte, NC who will be sampling their Lazy Bird Brown Ale and Jalapeno Pale Ale.
Palmetto Brewing Co: As the oldest brewery in South Carolina, Palmetto has been making great beer since 1993. We got our start during a windsurfing trip to the Columbia River Gorge. While sipping beer from a local brewery during a windsurfing break, we decided Charleston deserved more than yellow fizzy beer – they deserved a brewery to call their own.
Birdsong Brewing Co.: We are a Charlotte brewery, and have been involved in the craft beer scene and the community here since the beginning. We brew by a simple philosophy: let’s do our part for the environment and run our business conscientiously. 100% of our spent grain (and our peanut shells!) is utilized by a local cattle farm.
Our cans come from a North Carolina plant using aluminum, which is infinitely recyclable. We recycle all of our cardboard, glass and aluminum. We do our best to conserve water, as we know it’s a precious resource. The industry average is approximately 8 gallons of water to brew one gallon of beer–our ratio is 4:1.
80% of our production is draft beer and because kegs are returned to the brewery, draft has no throw away packaging (the ultimate reusable packaging). We work to minimize transport impact by keeping transactions local. We believe in a mindful approach — both environmentally and economically. Our bottom line isn’t our only guiding principle.
