Twelve Years In The Making
Our story begins twelve years ago when Gray Shuler started working in the beer industry and developed a passion for craft beer. During this time, he was afforded the opportunity to visit craft breweries around the US and developed his dream of being able to open up a brewery of his own one day.
Bringing It Home
Once Gray had a handle on the beer industry, he decided to work in local restaurants downtown and become enveloped in the revitalization of downtown Sumter. His work in the downtown area made him realize how important this section of town was to all of Sumter and how he wanted to continue the growth by opening up his brewery here.
The First Brewery In Sumter
Sumter Original Brewery will be the very first brewery to open in Sumter and will be a huge catalyst for continued growth in the downtown area. This 30,000 sq ft facility will have three stories, a 15 barrel brewing system and will focus on brewing a diverse selection of quality craft beer.
