We love lists. Especially those lists where a South Carolina person, place or thing is rated at or near the top.
And if Columbia beats out another city (we’re not naming names here, but you know who we mean) on a list for a best festival mention, well, that’s event better.
So imagine the joy when we found that when compiling “The Drinking Festival in Every State You Don’t Want to Miss” list, Thrillist’s Supercall site specializing in cocktails and culture named Columbia’s own The Great American Whiskey Fair as the event not to miss in South Carolina.
Of The Great American Whiskey Fair, Thrillist editors had this to say: “With 100 distilleries showing more than 500 different whiskeys from every state in the U.S. and four other countries, it’s a lot to take in. It’s also something you don’t want to miss if you’re in the area and love to geek out about good whiskey (and whisky) with people who love the spirit just as much as you do.”
