About RJ Rockers

Palmetto Conservation Foundation and RJ Rockers Brewing Company have combined their respective passions and have brought to market the quality handcrafted Palmetto Trail Ale that will help support the Palmetto Trail.

"Our slogan is HANDCRAFTED. EVERY BEER. EVERY DROP. EVERY TIME. And we aren't kidding either. Mark makes every batch with his own hands in our facility. He knows exactly what goes into the beer, and it is quality ingredients. He cares about what he makes."

“We understand not everyone drinks beer, but we appreciate those that know good beer. We are not a big beer company, and we don't merit ourselves mainly on huge promotions and large public events (although we are involved). We merit ourselves on beer. Any establishment that recognizes that fact is an establishment we want to be in. We don't want to be disconnected. We want to be right there with the people who drink our beer. After all, without them we are nothing.
