RJ Rockers Brewing Company

Spartanburg, NC

RJ Rockers Brewing Company became Spartanburg's first brewery in 1997, when owner and brewer Mark Johnsen set out on a mission to provide the people of the Upstate with the best microbrewed beer they had ever tasted. Mark, a New Jersey native, had loved brewing beer for his friends and family for years.


Year Round


Bald Eagle

Tap Handle

5.6%  Brown Ale

A traditional English-style brown ale, but with more body. Its deep brown color comes from a combination of Chocolate and Black malts. Tall, dark and smooth – the perfect cure for the domestic beer blahs.                                                     


Bell Ringer

Tap Handle

8.5%  American Strong Ale

Our high gravity offering weighs in at 8.5% ABV and is delightfully loaded with malt and hops. This is an ale worthy of your sturdiest goblet or most treasured stein. Ring it! 


Black Perle

9.5% Dark IPA  

The first release in the "Ales from the Dark Side" series...A dark, roasted twist on the traditional IPA that uses an absurd amount of malt and is "octo-hopped" with the German Perle hop. The biggest beer in the RJ Rockers linup to date.


Buckwheat

Tap Handle

5.6%  Dunkelweissen

This Dunkelweizen is overlaid with chocolaty flavors and fruity aromas, a beer that's so good it redefines the word bad. That's right...BAD is good!


First Snow

6%  Winter Warmer

This hearty American pale ale contains a rich blend of spices that warms the soul on a cold winter's night. Chill the mug, stoke the fire, and savor this quality seasonal brew. Available only during the Winter season.


Fish Paralyzer

7.5% Belgian Pale Ale

Fish Paralyzer is a Belgian-style pale ale that is moderately hopped with Tradition and Saaz.  The grain bill calls for a combination of specialty malt to produce its sweetness and copper color. The Belgian Ale yeast used provides a strong Belgian essence to Phenolic and spicy flavors and aromas


Patriot Ale

Tap Handle

6.0%  Pale Ale

Our American pale ale is aggressively hopped with Challenger and Cascade and has a sweet caramel finish. The flavor that launched RJ Rockers – and brewer Mark Johnsen’s personal fave. 


Peachy King

9.5%  Fruit Beer

People just love RJ Rockers’ Son of a Peach, a seasonal wheat beer made with real peaches that appeals to damned near every kind of beer drinker. Impeachment doubles down on Son of a Peach, with a massive ABV and as much punch as peaches can pack. 


Pumpkin

7%  Pumpkin Ale

The Gruntled Pumpkin planted the seed and started a revolution for all of pumpkin-kind. To guard the promising vines of the future that would eventually blossom to become the bottom of the barrel (and that’s a good thing) of this new pumpkin ale.


Rock Hopper

7.5%  IPA

This ninety-minute west coast-style IPA has nine hop additions of Warrior and Amarillo and comes in at a whopping 90 IBUs. A tongue-twisting treat for the hophead in all of us!


Son of a Peach

6%  Wheat Ale

An unfiltered American wheat ale made with real mean peaches. The only thing missing is the fuzz. Savor the anger. Available during the late Spring and Summer months.  


Strawberry Bomber

5.8%  Wheat Ale

Strawberry Wheat Ale is the perfect compliment to a hot summer day.  At its core is a lightly hopped wheat ale but with over 100lbs of local (Strawberry Hill) strawberries, it becomes the summer beer that many have been waiting for since the creation of its Peachy cousin.


Witty Twister

4.75%  Belgian White

Our spin on a Belgian-style white ale is a beer drinker’s dream. Brewed with a pinch of coriander and a twist of orange peel, this is the perfect anytime ale. When served with a slice of citrus, it delivers a whirlwind of flavor and a crisp finish.
