Appearance: Hazy straw color due to be an unfiltered American Wheat Ale. Pours with slight head and lingers around the edge of the glass.
Smell: Very aromatic beer. The peaches shine through and appeal to your nose throughout the enjoyment of the beer.
Taste: This beer is all about the peaches! On first sip you are immediately transported to the South and reminded of good old Southern Peach Tea! You can taste the candied peaches in every sip and because of the slight tart finish the beer is the perfect balance of sweet. They use South Carolina Grown Peaches in every batch and it gives the beer a juicy flavor that leaves you wanting more and more. We had a chance to try a few sips of this beer at The Great American Beer Festival a few weeks ago and we just couldn’t wait to get our hands on more of it!
Mouthfeel: Smooth with light carbonation.
If you are a fan of Unfiltered American Wheat Ales then you can’t miss out on this one from RJ Rockers Brewing Company located in Spartanburg, South Carolina! This is one of the best peach beers we have ever come across on Earth!
The slogan at RJ Rockers Brewing Company is “Handcrafted. Every Beer. Every Drop.”

While riding a chairlift high atop a mountain in Pocatello, Idaho I had an epiphany: Why not start your own brewery and have free beer for life? And fifteen months later, the dream became a reality. RJ Rockers Brewing Company opened its doors in Spartanburg, South Carolina, in April 1997, on a mission to provide delicious, hand-crafted beer to the good people of the Upstate. Originally a brewpub, Rockers quickly became the soul of downtown nightlife and served as a catalyst for the revitalization of Morgan Square. 5 1/2 years and thousands of “SpartanBurgers” later, Rockers ended Chapter 1 as a brewpub in November 2002 and began Chapter 2 with the transition to a production brewery. Over the next six years, and with a lot of help from the Sons of the Fermentation, RJ Rockers flourished throughout South Carolina and could be found at favorite watering holes and fine stores everywhere…sort of. After maxing out capacity at their 1,200 barrel windowless cinder block location, and suffering from a severe Vitamin D deficiency, Rockers made its triumphant return to Downtown Spartanburg in August 2009. The brewery now anchors the West End of Downtown Spartanburg, affectionately and appropriately known as the Grain District, and hosts Tours and Tasting and “Hoppy Hour” every Thursday through Saturday. And with over 16,000 barrels of capacity, RJ Rockers beer can now be found throughout the Southeast on draft, in bottles and cans in fine stores everywhere…almost. We’re getting there.
