Smittys business partner, John Stritch, has over 28 years experience in the beer industry! He is a graduate from Cal Ploy University and worked for Miller Brewing Company for eight years in Sales and Marketing. His last position was the Sales Manager of Texas, which is Millers #1 sales territory. John left Miller to become the VP of Sales for the Houston Distribution Company and later became the GM / President of Miller Brands, Inc. in Denver, CO. You might say he knows a little bit about beer. And thats hes finally putting that knowledge to good use brewing true craft microbrewed beers!
With their 50-barrel brewhouse and twelve 100-barrel fermenters, the Carolina Beer Company is capable of brewing up to 35,000 barrels per year. Their bottling/packaging line is capable of doing 3,000 cases per day, while their kegger can clean and fill kegs at a rate of one keg per minute!
Their flagship brew, the Carolina Blonde, is still their biggest seller, with over 50% of their sales volume coming from this one beer. We liked it, but preferred their fuller-bodied products and think you will too! John also brews Carolina Light, Charleston Wheat, Cottonwood Endo IPA, Cottonwood Low Down Brown, along with the two we are featuring this month, the Charleston Pale Ale and Charleston Brown Ale.
