When we think of the best of South Carolina and Old 96 District, a lot of images come to mind. A favorite among adults in Old 96 District is moonshine. South Carolina has a long history with moonshine. We also have a rich history with another tasty beverage, craft beer. South Carolinians love a smooth hooch or a refreshing brew. Old 96 District celebrates the legacy of these alcohol artisans.
Moonshine in South Carolina goes back as far as 1791. Farmers in remote areas of the state distilled the grain they could not get to market. By the 1950’s, “moonshining” was quite prevalent in the south.  In 2009, South Carolina passed a law making micro-distilleries legal in South Carolina. Today, the resurgence of moonshine has sparked a craze of craft distilleries across the state.

Craft brewing goes back to the 1970’s. People were dissatisfied with weak, pale light brews and craved the deep rich brews of their ancestors. Home breweries started cropping up all over the country. Craft Brewers in South Carolina have succeeded in establishing high levels of quality, consistency and innovation, expanding the minds of the beer consumers and creating one of the most diverse brewing cultures in the world.

Sip some 80 proof or enjoy a micro-brew lager in Old 96 District and sleep like a baby in one of our B&Bs, Inns or hotels. Stay the weekend to take advantage of all the tastes of Old 96 District.
