They did it y’all. Summerville has officially set the Guinness World Record for the largest “glass” of sweet tea, weighing in at 1,400 gallons. An adjudicator was on hand to present the record. Oh, and it’s also National Tea Day, so all the more reason to celebrate.  

WE DID IT! We have successfully set a new Guinness World Record! #GWRmason #sweetlife

Apparently the party has only just begun, so head to Main St. Summerville now for $5 Mason Jars full of the good stuff.
