THE LOVE OF CRAFT


Amor Artis Brewing is a family-owned, quality-focused, community-based brewery located in historic downtown Fort Mill, South Carolina. The mission of Amor Artis is to sustain the name: the love of craft.

The goal is this: to respect tradition while pushing its boundaries in order to ensure the best-tasting and most enjoyable beer possible.

Because it’s less about the style or the IBU. It’s about the love of the craft.

FROM DAYDREAM
TO AMERICAN DREAM


Co-founder Travis Tolson went from home brewing at his garage in upstate New York to creating brews in the Last Frontier of Alaska. After brewing for and managing a brewpub in Asheville, NC, he finally opened up his own shop in Fort Mill, SC.

Co-founder Steve Tolson graduated from Davidson with a bachelor's degree in chemistry and then a master's degree in biology from the Citadel. Originally hailing from Fort Mill, the brothers found it fitting to return to their hometown to continue to grow their roots, and to do what they love: Brew great beer!

To the Tolson brothers, sharing their love and passion for craft beer and community togetherness isn't just a job. It's a lifestyle they look forward to sharing with you.
