The SCBA originally began as Pop the Cap SC in 2005. Founded by Jaime Tenny of COAST Brewing Company. Our mission at that point was to raise the allowable alcohol content in beer from 5% ABW. That goal was achieved in 2007 with the help of the SC Beer Wholesalers, Total Wine and the overwhelming support of craft beer advocates. We believe that South Carolina will greatly benefit from enhanced beer laws in the form of employment, increased tax revenue and pleasing a large number of citizens who have a increasingly growing interest in craft beer.

The SCBA would like to see South Carolina become a premiere destination for craft beer much like Asheville, NC has. We will continue to work for the benefit of our South Carolina breweries to help them continue the success, growth and recognition they deserve.
