Workshops, bike rentals, live music, great food and an active tap room are keeping Saluda Outfitters hopping during July as we encourage patrons to come in, gear up and get outside for some summer fun.
Green River Eddy’s Tap Room: The taproom continues to offer a variety of craft beers and wine, selecting some favorites from breweries around Western North Carolina and Upstate South Carolina primarily. We now have Green River Eddy’s beer glasses on sale for $8 and logo T-shirts for $24.95, as well as stickers for both the Outfitter and the taproom. There are also some growlers available now so you can take home your favorite beers. In addition to the usual Saturday 5-8 p.m. live music on the deck, special events this month are scheduled for 6-9 p.m., Friday, July 6, with the duo Mark ‘n Brian helping to kick off Coon Dog Day weekend with some great music and a 4-9 p.m., July 21 Terrapin Brewing Co. Tap Takeover.
The Big Hungry: Now with a fully functioning commercial kitchen and grill, the Outfitter is able to offer a select menu from The Big Hungry food truck. Our staple is our 8-ounce Angus burger cooked to order with fresh cut fries. We are featuring some vegan and vegetarian selections and our pulled pork tacos have become a favorite as well. Food is served 4-8 p.m. Friday, 12-8 p.m. Saturday and 1-8 p.m. Sunday. (Check our Facebook page www.Facebook.com/saludaoutfittersnc for updates on hours and menu items.)
