About RJ Rockers
Established in 1997, RJ Rockers Brewing Company is based in Spartanburg, S.C.   Mark Johnsen founded the brewery with the goal of having the people of the South Carolina upstate taste and drink great beer.   He fell in love with beer while stationed in Germany as an Army ranger, and that experience led him to start homebrewing. More than 16 years later he is starting to realize that his hobby has gotten a bit out of control.  

Brewing on a two vessel 30 bbl system RJ Rockers has added 12 60 bbls tanks in the last 12 months, taking installed capacity to more than 20,000 bbls.  The brewery harnesses the power of the sun to heat more than 60 percent of process water, recycles its spent grain to local farmers, bales all excess corrugated cardboard and paper and continues to search for better, more sustainable ways to operate the business. 

The brewery also hosts a very successful Tour and Taste event every Thursday  and encourages beer fans to stop by any time if they're in the Spartanburg area.

The brand currently features distribution in five states for 11 different handcrafted brews. These brews include: Son of a Peach; First Snow Ale; Patriot Pale Ale; Bell Ringer; Bald Eagle Brown Ale; Light Rock Ale; Buckwheat After Dark (Bad) Ale; Star Spangled Stout Ale; Rockhopper IPA; Black Perle Dark IPA; and Fish Paralyzer Belgian-Style Pale Ale.
