Who is Benford?

Benford Brewing was started in 2012 as Boxcar Brewery, LLC.  Shortly after we started ordering glassware and growlers, we were notify by a group in West Chester, PA that we infringed on their brewery name.  Naming a brewery is harder than you think.  We wanted it to mean something, not some crazy made up name.  My father suggested Benford Brewing.  He stated: "The name fits the existing logo and by the way, we have many Benford's in our family." My uncle's name is Robert Benford O'Neal, Grandfather - Paul Benford O'Neal, Great Grandfather - Benford O'Neal, and Great Uncle - Benford George O'Neal.  Our Irish family migrated through the Charleston Harbor in the late 1800's and many Benford O'Neal's worked their way into Louisiana.  Ironically, our current brewing equipment was purchased from Tin Roof Brewing in Baton Rouge, LA.  

Now you know they story - Thanks for visiting!       Bryan O'Neal - Owner.

About Us


Farm Brewed

l We are a locally owned and operated craft beer brewery located in Lancaster, SC.  Our beers are brewed in 30 barrel batches on a small farm.  Our land is fortunate to have a pure well water source tapped into the water table of three known springs located on premises. This natural gift gives us great tasting pure and healthy drinking water and is the key to brewing great craft beer.  Our beers are brewed with only natural based ingredients staying true to brewing traditions.


Spent Grains

Instead of storing our spent grains on site waiting for a farmer to pick them up, we easily dump our grains onsite to feed our livestock.  There is something unique about consuming a beer while watching our cows roam the fields. It's definitively more relaxing and easier to carry a conversation than having cars zoom down a highway!



Just when you think this is a small operation, we distribute in SC, NC, and TN. We brew and package thousand's of gallons of product per year and focus on sales in craft beer retail shops and grocery chains to provide our brand close to you!
