Dropped in to get a stamp in our "Pint Hound Passport" for NC Beer month. Look it up, do it next year. Quirky, fun place. Read about it in the book the brewmaster has. Read the saying on the wall. Talk to the owner, you'll learn alot. Were we not on our quest to get another brewery stamp, probably would... More

Disclaimer: I love German style beer. My brother and I plan our fishing trips, whether by ourselves or with our group of firemen buddies we bring up annually, around our ability to make it here to have at least a flight of beer before they close. Driving from Alabama my mouth starts watering when I cross the North Carolina line.... More

Great owners, friendly and ready to chat about their beers. Their Orange Blossom IPA and their Middle Earth Brown are my favorites. If you're lucky enough to be around when they tap their barrel aged stouts, then you are, indeed, lucky enough. Happy to support and rave about my local home town brewers.

Almost went past the brewery thinking it was closed, but had a great surprise when Cheryl came out to greet us. The atmosphere is pleasant & the beer was great. Appreciated the conversation making us feel like we were long time friends.

There's never a huge variety of beer on tap, but we are always able to find something we enjoy. There is limited seating, but it's never felt crowded. There are board... More

Had a flight for tasting: Stayed on the amber or darker side. Each was worthy of note, even the one made with honey was nicely done.

This is some awesome homemade root beer. They provide it to the Community Table for the monthly Blue Plate Special to raise money to feed those who need help. The company I work for participates and we love the root beer.
