Steel Hands Brewing opened December 1st, 2018 in Cayce, South Carolina as the largest production brewery in The Midlands.  Architect turned brewery owner, Scott Lambert and business partner, Darryl Frick have been planning the execution of the brewery for three years.  The brewery site was formerly a recycling plant where a fire had burned for nearly a week. With concern for contamination on the site, and although not required, the owners entered into a voluntary cleanup plan with DHEC that resulted in test wells being drilled, a significant number of soil samplings unearthed, and trucks full of plastic debris that had not been recycled removed from the site.

The 4-acre site is designed as a destination brewery that combines public gathering areas and brewery production in Cayce, South Carolina. Planning for the project focused on both the brewery operations’ initial and future needs – the facility is designed to account for future production expansion. The project serves as the anchor and hub for planned revitalization in the City of Cayce.

Consisting of a 10,000 square foot facility, the site is equipped with a fully automated 30-barrel brewhouse, 2,500 square foot custom-designed taproom with seating for 150, outdoor gathering space, local artist sculptures, stage area, restaurant and parking. The name “Steel Hands” was inspired by the facility’s location across from one of the nation’s largest rebar manufacturing plans, CMC Steel, and by the hard working industries that have helped shape their founding principles. The brewery is an advocate to the local movement, and aspires to support the community and its organizations.
