Is Beer Your Thing?

Craft Breweries in the Carolinas!

The microbrewery trend that has been slowly growing across America over the last decade has certainly not missed the Carolinas.  Microbreweries are sprouting up all over the Carolinas and they are thriving!  Each one offering their own unique and flavorful take on the centuries old art of brewing while creating an atmosphere where people can gather and enjoy their latest creations.  Like many of the wineries of the Carolinas, they come in different sizes and have different offerings above and beyond their beer samplings.  Some may just stick to the beer and offer light snacks to go with it while others may have full service restaurants with live entertainment, gift shops, etc.  The variety and diversity of each brewery truly contributes to the experience and defines the vibe of the city that hosts them.  What better way to spend an evening with your friends who like beer than visiting three or four (or more!) breweries one afternoon or evening.  Let the Van in Black be your designated driver so that everyone in your party can enjoy themselves.  You could drive yourself, but why?  You define the locations and we get you there safely.  Whether you want to tour breweries in Asheville, Charlotte, Greenville, Spartanburg, or any of the surrounding areas, the Van in Black is available when you need us.

Where is Your Favorite Winery in the Carolinas?

An Autumn Winery

Both North and South Carolina have a number of wineries that are popular spots to visit and tour.  The North Carolina winery scene is a little more established than South Carolina which is evident by the sheer number of wineries already established in North Carolina.  However, more and more South Carolina wineries are popping up and the local wine scene there is rapidly growing.  The good news is that wherever you are in North or South Carolina, there are probably a number of wineries that are reasonably close to you and make a great day trip, they’re easy and inviting to visit for a tour, tasting, lunch, or all of the above.
