In Partnership with the Southern Weekend

Oktoberfest! We’ll drink to that.

Oktoberfest has been celebrated for over 200 years. It only made sense for us to celebrate with a pint and learn all about it.

We caught up with Stephen Thompson and Billy McBride, owners of Local Motive Brewing Company in Florence, South Carolina to talk all things Oktoberfest.  The friends started brewing in their home and loved it so much, they decided to open their own brewery, bringing new business to downtown Florence.

This year, Local Motive celebrated Oktoberfest with a special brew and plan to do the same for the Holidays.  Come along with us and hear all about what makes an Oktoberfest brew.  We’ll drink to that!
