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.

Many city historians consider this area of the Reedy River where the 'Falls' drop as the place where Greenville began. Tribes from the Cherokee Nation first inhabited the region around today's 32-acre park until Europeans established a presence in 1768. From then until the mid 20th-Century, European colonists, then Americans used the falls as a source of power. Development grew around the falls with the construction of a University, houses of worship, mills and many other factories along the river. After much restoration and removal of pollution left from the factories, the Carolina Foothills Garden Club along with the city of Greenville now provide a perfect setting for a romantic outing or a picnic with family and friends. The main highlight is the Liberty Bridge, a 380-foot steel span that allows guests to traverse over the falls. The park has no entrance fee and it's open seven days a week.
