Chamber to host “Beers & Gears” Sept. 29

The Beaufort Regional Chamber of Commerce has announced the inaugural Beers & Gears, to be held Sept. 29 in Habersham Marketplace. 

The event will feature craft beer tastings by breweries local to South Carolina and Georgia and a classic car display. Attendees will also have the opportunity to hear local favorite Deas Guyz from the main stage from 7-10 p.m.

“We’re looking forward to adding this new, unique event to the calendar,” says Blakely Williams, President & CEO of the Beaufort Regional Chamber. “We’re excited to showcase the merchants of the Habersham Marketplace as well as introduce local breweries from the emerging craft beer market to our friends and neighbors. With an emphasis on appreciation, the Chamber’s Beers & Gears event is a place to experience craft beers. The partnership with area car clubs also offers a fun, vintage spin on this otherwise fresh event.”

Pre-sale tickets will be available online for $35 and will include unlimited tastings and access to the car display and concert. Day-of tickets can be purchased on-site for $45.
