Pimm's Cup and Wimbledon

Watching the Wimbledon finals?

I hope you have your Pimms Cup, it is Wimbledon's signature drink. Over 15,000 Pimm's Cups are served each day during Wimbledon.

"Pimm's is most common in Britain, particularly Southern England. It is one of the two staple drinks at Wimbledon...the other being Champagne. As a result Pimm's has the reputation of being a drink for the upper class.
Pimm's No. 1 Cup is the essential ingredient in the Pimm's Cup, which mixes one part Pimm's No.1 with three parts lemonade or lemon soda, ice cubes, borage leaves (nowadays a wedge of cucumber is usually substituted for this ingredient), mint leaves and slices of lemon, orange and strawberry." --

New Avery Beers!!

Available at our Clayton and Rock Hill location
Avery Karma...$8.79 / 6pk
"We believe in Karma. We suspect most of you do, too. It truly is a global concept. Very simply put, "you get what you give." Inspired by this principle and the wonderful farmhouse and pale ales of Belgium, we've created Karma Ale, a decidedly fruity and estery ale, intricate in body and nose, all driven by a unique Belgian yeast strain. Remember, good things DO happen to good people. Here's to being good!" -- Avery Brewery

Avery 14er ESB...$8.79 / 6pk

"Named for the 54 Colorado peaks which tower over 14,000 feet in elevation, our session beer is a spectacular copper hued beauty. The treatment of our water to simulate English hard water and the blending of several specialty malts and hops produce a delicate balance between aromatic maltiness and herbal hops." -- Avery Brewery

Avery Redpoint Amber...$8.79 / 6pk

"Some beer lovers enjoy a rich, malty brew, while others go more for hoppy beers. Our brewmaster likes both - as evidence by this rich and caramelly amber ale with the distinct flavor and bouquet of Cascade hops. Reaching the perfect balance of crystal malt sweetness and hop bitterness took plenty of time and effort, making Redpoint the perfect beer for toasting your most recent success." -- Avery Brewery
