The 'Apple-achian Shine' and 'Carolina Peach Shine' feature those fruits and though they are still made from corn, there is still a wildcard in the bunch, the 'Stumphouse' is made with wheat mash.

The Liberty Bridge is located in lovely Falls Park on the Reedy, a wonderful site along the river that is the backdrop for this 345-ft. span. Boston architect Miguel Rosales designed the structure and it was completed at a cost of 4.5 million dollars with the help of city taxpayers. The bridge is unique in that it has a distinctive curved shape, and is held up by masts and cables that are cantilevered away from the span at sharp angles, giving the impression that the bridge floats. Walking across it provides great views of the mini-cascades along with other modern buildings ensconced within the green foliage of the park. After taking some striking photos of the bridge and falls, exit at the western entrance where you'll reach S. Main Street, make a left here and visit Greenville's historic West End.
