What happens when a group of friends – a couple of bankers, a computer guy, a landscape architect, a trial lawyer, plus a brewmaster – have a great idea then put that plan into motion? For the answer, check out Legal Remedy Brewing in Rock Hill, celebrating their first anniversary – or ‘Beerthday Celebration,’ as they call it, happening this Saturday with a multi-part event including live music.

Oh sure, it sounds like a ‘walked into a bar joke’ at the start, with this bunch of guys plotting and planning, then converting a long vacant auto dealership into a custom craft brewery and pub.

The redo totally transformed the look of the property, and packed in patrons this first year, building a faithful following for a local brewery/pub that went from basement trials to reality in a relatively short time. With the brewery/pub there’s also cold storage for distribution, a cellar for barrel aged sour programs, plus expansion with an additional building (across the street in the former Varsity building) to house a canning line, plus more parking on their way to becoming “a place for co-workers, friends, and family – a sort of community living room – to bring us all together.”

So, be there to commemorate it all with Saturday’s ‘Beerthday’ Celebration at Legal Remedy Brewing. Doors open at noon, this party throwdown features a lush variety of music all day from a DJ as well as performances by local artists. The live music starts at 1 p.m. Here’s the lineup:

Small Axe, roots/rock/reggae, 1 p.m.; Amigo, rock ‘n’ roll, 2 p.m.; Sinners & Saints, folk/ alt country, 3 p.m.; Greg Ellis, from the band Motel Glory, 4 p.m.; Da Dang Fellas, string trio gypsy jazz, 5 p.m.; Mr. Manager, classic/eclectic rock & pop, 6 p.m.; and The Loudermilks, rock/alt country/folk, 8 p.m..

The event offers limited beer flavors, a special menu of LRB food, and commemorative merchandise, along with live music for the first anniversary ‘Beerthday’ Celebration Saturday at Legal Remedy Brewing, 129 Oakland Ave. For more show details call 803-324-2337, check Facebook or visit
