Hey there, Georgetown! Have you heard the latest buzz about what’s brewing in our historic town?

It’s time to raise our glasses to the soon-to-be talk of the town – Winyah Bay Brewing Company. Set to open its doors in Spring 2024, this brewery is the brainchild of Trevor Day, a guy whose story begins in the small town of Lebanon, Ohio. His journey from Ohio to our very own Georgetown is nothing short of inspiring, and it’s about to add a whole new flavor to our local scene.

A Tale of Baseball, Dreams, and Brews

Trevor’s story is like a page from an all-American novel. Growing up in Lebanon, Ohio, life was all about family, baseball, and community. Imagine those warm summer evenings, the sound of a baseball hitting the bat, cheers from the stands – that was Trevor’s childhood. These early years, filled with sports and family gatherings, were the foundation of what he values today: community, connection, and, of course, a good brew.

Fast forward a bit, and we find Trevor moving to Georgetown. He fell in love with our city’s vibe – who wouldn’t, right? Trevor initially dipped his toes into the culinary world, fueled by a passion for quality and a dream inspired by the TV show “Cheers.” Yep, he wanted to create a place where everyone knows your name, and he’s about to do just that with Winyah Bay Brewing Company.

Winyah Bay Brewing Company: More Than Just a Brewery

So, what’s the scoop on Winyah Bay Brewing Company? It’s not just another brewery; it’s a dream turned into a reality—a place where tradition meets innovation most delightfully. Trevor’s vision is to create a variety of beers that cater to every palate, whether you’re a fan of classic ales or looking for something a bit more adventurous.

But here’s the best part – Winyah Bay Brewing isn’t just about the beer. It’s about creating a space where the community can come together. Think local events, collaborations with other Georgetown businesses, and an atmosphere like home. It’s a place where each sip tells a story, and every visit feels like catching up with old friends.

Georgetown’s Most Anticipated Opening

The buzz around town is real! Winyah Bay Brewing Company is shaping up to be one of the most anticipated openings in Georgetown for 2024. The team is hard at work, dotting the i’s and crossing the t’s to make sure everything’s just perfect for the big day. Sustainability? Check. Community engagement? Double-check. A fantastic lineup of beers? Oh, you bet!

Litchfield Collective: Eager for a Sip of the Action

Here at Litchfield Collective, we’re more than just excited about this new addition to our community. We’re over the moon! As a coworking space that thrives on community and collaboration, we can’t help but dream about the possibility of having Winyah Bay Brewing’s creations on tap for our tenants. Imagine the joy of wrapping up a day’s work and unwinding with a freshly brewed local beer in our space.

Trevor, if you’re reading this, let’s chat!

A Vision for the Future

Looking ahead, Winyah Bay Brewing Company isn’t just aiming to be a hit in its first year; there are plans for growth and expansion while keeping that Georgetown charm we all love. It’s all about staying true to their roots and growing alongside our community.

A Toast to Trevor and Winyah Bay Brewing

From his humble beginnings in Ohio to his culinary adventures in Georgetown, Trevor Day’s journey reminds him of the power of following your dreams. Winyah Bay Brewing Company isn’t just another business opening; it’s a story of passion, resilience, and community coming to life.

So, Georgetown, let’s prepare to welcome Winyah Bay Brewing Company with open arms. Here’s to new beginnings, to community, and to a beer that’s brewed with heart. Cheers, and see you in 2024!

What is ADA compliance?

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) is a federal civil rights law that prohibits discrimination against people with disabilities. The ADA requires businesses, organizations, and other entities to provide individuals with disabilities equal access to goods, services, and facilities.

In the context of the internet, ADA compliance refers to the requirement that websites and web-based applications be accessible to people with disabilities. This includes ensuring that people with disabilities can use the website and access its content and that the website is free from barriers that could prevent people with disabilities from using it.

Why is ADA compliance important?

ADA compliance is substantial because it ensures that people with disabilities have equal access to information and resources online. This is especially important given the increasing reliance on the internet for communication, education, employment, and other essential services.

In addition, ADA compliance is vital for businesses and organizations because it helps to ensure that they are not discriminating against individuals with disabilities. This not only helps to promote inclusivity and diversity, but it can also protect businesses and organizations from legal action.

What are the potential consequences of not being ADA-compliant?

The potential consequences of not being ADA-compliant can be significant. Here are a few potential consequences that businesses and organizations should be aware of:

Legal action

Legal action is one of the most significant potential consequences of not being ADA-compliant. Businesses and organizations that do not provide equal access to their goods, services, or facilities for people with disabilities can be sued under the ADA. In recent years, there has been an increase in the number of lawsuits related to ADA compliance, particularly in the context of website accessibility.

Lost business

In addition to the risk of legal action, businesses and organizations that are not ADA compliant may also lose customers or clients who have disabilities and cannot access their website or web-based application. This can result in a loss of revenue and negatively impact the business or organization.

Damaged reputation

Another potential consequence of not being ADA compliant is damaging a business or organization’s reputation. This can occur if the business or organization is perceived as not inclusive or supportive of people with disabilities. This can lead to losing trust and credibility among customers, clients, and other stakeholders.

How can businesses and organizations ensure ADA compliance?

There are several steps that businesses and organizations can take to ensure that their websites and web-based applications are ADA-compliant:

Conduct an accessibility audit

The first step in ensuring ADA compliance is to conduct an accessibility audit of the website or web-based application. This involves reviewing the website or application to identify any barriers that could prevent people with disabilities from using it. Many tools and resources can be used to conduct an accessibility audit, including automated testing tools and manual testing by individuals with disabilities.

Implement accessibility improvements

Once an accessibility audit has been completed, the next step is implementing necessary improvements to make the website or application accessible. This may involve changing the website’s code, adding alternative text to images, or implementing other accessibility features.

Provide training to staff

Ensuring ADA compliance is not just a one-time effort; it requires ongoing maintenance and attention. Providing training to staff on accessibility best practices and how to identify and fix accessibility issues can help to ensure that the website or application remains compliant over time.

Utilize automated testing tools

Automated testing tools can be a helpful resource for identifying and fixing accessibility issues on a website or application. These tools can scan the website or application and identify potential barriers, making identifying and fixing issues easier.

Work with a web accessibility specialist like Litchfield Collective.

For businesses and organizations that are not familiar with web accessibility, working with a specialist can be a valuable resource. Web accessibility specialists have expertise in identifying and addressing accessibility issues on websites and web-based applications and can provide guidance and support to businesses and organizations looking to ensure ADA compliance.


ADA compliance is essential for businesses and organizations looking to ensure that their websites and web-based applications are accessible to people with disabilities. Failing to be ADA compliant can result in legal action, lost business, and damage to a company’s reputation. By conducting an accessibility audit, implementing necessary improvements, providing training to staff, utilizing automated testing tools, and working with a web accessibility specialist, businesses and organizations can help ensure that their websites and applications comply with the ADA.
