April 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Representatives from RJ Rockers, the
Spartanburg-based craft brewery, today announced the expanded distribution of their popular seasonal beer offering, Son of a Peach.
For the 2013 season, Son of a Peach will now be available at select bars, restaurants and retail chains throughout
Atlanta and the greater metropolitan. With this addition, Son of a Peach is now available throughout the majority of the
Southeastern United States.
An unfiltered American wheat ale, Son of a Peach utilizes
South Carolina peaches in the brewing process to bring a unique flavor to this handcrafted brew. Son of a Peach made its 2013 debut
March 15 and will be available through August.
"We are very excited to announce the expanded distribution of Son of a Peach," said
Henry Depew, president of RJ Rockers. "With this unique brew, we feel RJ Rockers delivers a unique, handcrafted beer that uses ingredients that are native to our region of
the United States. It is a great opportunity to expand distribution to not only provide craft beer enthusiasts the opportunity to try something different, but also expand the footprint of the RJ Rockers brand."
About RJ Rockers Established in 1997, RJ Rockers Brewing Company is based in
Spartanburg, S.C. Mark Johnsen founded the brewery with the goal of having the people of the
South Carolina upstate taste and drink great beer. He fell in love with beer while stationed in
Germany as an Army ranger, and that experience led him to start homebrewing. More than 16 years later he is starting to realize that his hobby has gotten a bit out of control.
Brewing on a two vessel 30 bbl system RJ Rockers has added 12 60 bbls tanks in the last 12 months, taking installed capacity to more than 20,000 bbls. The brewery harnesses the power of the sun to heat more than 60 percent of process water, recycles its spent grain to local farmers, bales all excess corrugated cardboard and paper and continues to search for better, more sustainable ways to operate the business.
