Notes from our Head Brewer

It’s a great day to be in the beer business. And it’s great to have the newsletter back, with a bold, brand new look! I guess you could say we went into hibernation for the winter, but summer is here and we’re back on line. And with the arrival of summer comes the arrival of our summer beer lineup. Our leadoff hitter is Palisade Pils, a full-bodied German style pilsner moderately hopped with…Palisade (now you know where the name comes from). This is a very easy drinking beer that fits any occasion: golf, boating, fishing, MMA training, you name it. If you feel that a beer at 5.2% abv is a tad heavy for you, why not tone it down to something even lighter? Tart Blanche Sour Wheat Ale weighs in at a whopping 4.2%, but this beer is not about the bass; it’s all about the tartness. Honestly, I’m not a big sour beer guy, but this one works for me. Tart, but not overwhelmingly so. You can throw a couple of these down and you’re not gonna get puckered out…and you can still operate machinery too (everything in moderation, of course. Please drink responsibly). Both of these beers are available on draft and in cans. And if you’re looking for something south of the border for your 4th celebration, why not grab a growler of Papi Chulo Mexican Lager? Perfect with anything spicy, serve it with a lime.

Have a safe and Happy 4th of July!



To the RJ Rockers Family,

We are proud to have the distinction as Spartanburg’s original brewery in 1997, and we have maintained our vision and effort to make good beer ever since. Although the RJ Rockers restaurant did not open until 2017, our vision remains the same: to make good food.

With the dine-in restrictions caused by COVID-19, it has become increasingly difficult to maintain our food quality standards. It is with heavy hearts that we have decided to close restaurant operations while the gathering restrictions are in place. The taproom will be open for “to-go” beer purchases only from Tuesday through Saturday, 12:00-5:00.

We hope to re-open the restaurant as soon as possible after the restrictions are lifted. Thank you to our loyal customers for your support during these challenging times. Our entire team appreciates you.

Effective March 31st :  the restaurant and taproom are closed to guests  growlers, crowlers, 4- and 6-packs are available for “to-go” purchase in the Taproom  pick up at the Taproom entrance or call for curbside pick-up in same location

Stay calm, wash your hands, and drink beer.

Sincerely, Mark Johnsen, John Bauknight and Adam Ashcraft Owners, RJ Rockers Brewing Company
