The PourTaproom

The whole reason we made a trip through Greenville, South CarolinaGreenville, South Carolina was to go to the newest dog friendly place there :The Pour Taproom.



A shelf serve beer tavern with a small game room serves over 40 types of beer and several types of wine.


They were very welcoming of our dogs, offering water bowls for them.  Ossian and Koda loved all the attention from the employees and other patrons.
