Greenville –

In the world of craft beer, a “whale” means a rare and special highly sought-after beer. Greenville is the home of the second location of The Whale :: A Craft Beer Collective. We are a craft beer bar that specializes in offering the best liquids from around the country and around the world. We started our first craft beer bar in Asheville, NC in 2017 and came down the mountain to Greenville, SC for our second location in 2019. Check us out at 1108 S. Main St in the Greene Building. 

At The Whale GVL :: A Craft Beer Collective, you’ll find a vast selection of carefully selected liquids from some of the finest producers in the country and the world. We serve beverages that range from meticulously crafted classic and historical styles to cutting-edge creations that push the boundaries. We source beer from all over the world, and we are also excited to brew some “Whale Exclusives” with local and regional breweries.

No matter your preferences, there is something for you at The Whale GVL :: A Craft Beer Collective. Our knowledgeable bar staff is happy to assist you in making your selection or answer any questions you may have. We are not just a craft beer bar; we also maintain a carefully curated wine list and offer sake, mead, and non-alcoholic craft beverages.
