This Sunday, Revelry Brewing Co. celebrates its third year in business with a Tres Anos Block Party. Short Grain, John Lewis, and BJ Dennis will be cooking up eats while DJs Spark Box and Rehab provide the soundtrack. The best part? A portion of the proceeds goes to Green Heart Project, Charleston’s garden-based learning project that teaches students about fresh, locally-grown produce.
But Tres Anos will be more than just a third birthday party for the brewers. They’re also celebrating the upcoming opening of their second location at 36 Romney St. — The Hold.

“It’s loaded down with beautiful oak foudres, wine barrels, and the state’s first koelschip (the other being at Birds Fly South in Greenville) a shallow open top fermentor for spontaneous batches that looks to pull in natural yeast and microflora from the Charleston air,” Fleming says.
[image-3] Revelry is planning to release its first 100 percent spontaneous batch next month which will be a “Ramblin Rubus,” an American Wild Ale with red raspberries.
“It’s been brewed with regionally malted grains, an overnight stay in our koelschip, and aged in oak for six months,” explains Fleming. “This building is where you’ll see an array of wild, sour, and barrel-aged products. The Hold will allow us to be more creative in our process. With the intention of offering Revelry bottles sales/releases to start with a longer term vision of tastings, and small events down the road.”
