Entrepreneur Minute – Scott Burgess, Bierkeller

October 5, 2023

The Who’s on the Move, Entrepreneur Minute is an interview in support of the undeniable impact that entrepreneurs have on our communities. We will be highlighting 20 entrepreneurs in each of our markets (Columbia, Greenville and Charleston) with a short video. You will see a diverse group of entrepreneurs and we will be exploring the theme of overcoming obstacles.

We would like to thank our sponsors of this video series:

Finally, a permanent destination on the river for enjoying high quality, casual food and drink in the shade — and it happens to be an authentic German biergarten. Located in Canalside overlooking the water, Bierkeller Columbia is here.

Their new, full-service brewery and restaurant is located right next to their old, primary pop-up location at Riverfront Park. For those visiting from out of town, the Columbia Riverfront is a public place open-year round and comprises miles of trails along our three rivers as well as the Historic Columbia Canal. Take in the scenic and calming views from the Sola Station Esplanade while seated at one of our Biergarten or Bistro tables. Parking is easy and clearly marked, with abundant spaces (ca. 500) in the covered garage as well as surface parking in the nearby Riverfront Park and Aflac lots. Both I-26 and I-77 are just minutes from our location.

Whether you are visiting or are a true local who has lived here your whole life, the experience at Bierkeller Brewing Company’s new spot will remind you of everything there is to love about our fair, riverfront city.
