February 25, 2020

Cayce’s first production brewery recognized for Commercial Beautification

Steel Hands Brewing was awarded with the prestigious Golden Nail Award by the Columbia Chamber of Commerce at the Columbia Impact Awards Luncheon on February 20, 2020. It is bestowed upon a business or property owner for exemplary contributions to the physical character of the greater Midlands region through cosmetic or commercial means such as restoration of a façade, historic building, re-purposing of a blighted space, or renovating a creative new space during the previous calendar year.

The co-owners of Steel Hands Brewing, Scott Lambert and Darryl Frick, worked closely with the City of Cayce to develop a destination brewery by reviving an abandoned industrial site into a thriving production facility. “It is an honor to be recognized for this award from the Columbia Chamber of Commerce,” Steel Hands Brewing co-owner Scott Lambert said. “It’s amazing the positive impact breweries can have on the revitalization of a community, and we’re extremely proud and thankful for the opportunity to enhance our neighborhood and provide visitors with a truly hand forged experience.”

Steel Hands Brewing opened December 1st, 2018 in Cayce, South Carolina and is the largest production brewery in the Midlands. The 10,000 square foot facility offers a 30-barrel production brewhouse, custom designed taproom, full restaurant on-site, outdoor gathering space, and live entertainment stage. Their story is inspired by the surrounding hard-working industries that have shaped the founding principles of commitment to quality products, and they are dedicated to serving the highest quality beer with exceptional consistency.

Steel Hands is an advocate to the locate movement and aspires to support the community and its organizations.
