We know that our friend Tom Davis makes fantastic beer – and now we get word that Thomas Creek’s brewmaster is also one of Greenville’s top movers and shakers.

Greenville Business Magazine has named Tom to its 2013 50 Most Influential People list.

During the last year, Thomas Creek introduced three new beers (Castaway Chocolate Orange IPA, Pumpkin Ale & Coffee Oatmeal Stout), was named South Carolina’s best brewery by Thrillist, expanded its production facility – and launched a pretty sweet new website. Congratulations, Tom!
