Craft beer is here (and in abundance) in Wilmington North Carolina. Our great town now has 14 breweries — learn a little more about our favorites here:
Front Street Brewery, Downtown Wilmington - The OG, as many might call it, Front Street brewery has been in a staple in Wilmington for many years. Their classic brews include a Coastal Kolsch, Dram Tree Scottish Ale, Port City IPA and everyone loves Tiny Tim’s Porter when the season rolls around.
Wilmington Brewing Company, Midtown Wilmington - This homegrown favorite was started by Wilmington locals, John and Michelle Savard, and you can taste the love, sweat and tears put into each beer and the warm welcoming atmosphere. Don’t make it to Midtown often, you can find their beers on tap around town and local restaurants and bars…just ask bar tenders for Wilmington Brewing Company’s well-known favorite, Tropical Lightning!
Fly Trap Brewery, North 4th Street Arts District, Wilmington – This is the “sister” brewery to Wilmington Brewing Company – John Savard’s sister, Emily, married to Mike Barlas, own Fly Trap Brewing and their goal is to create a community-center brewery with a focus on American and Belgium ales. Stop in and enjoy one of their well-balanced, full-flavored Pints for Purpose where a percentage of the proceeds are placed back in the community.
Good Hops, Carolina Beach – At Good Hops, they combine tasty craft beers and a love for disc golf. Enjoy a beer before playing the course or celebrate after your round at the tap room. Either way, Good Hops is a win-win in our books.
Wrightsville Beach Brewery, guess where?! Well it’s not quite on Wrightsville Beach, but it’s right on the way there! This hot spot has a slew of great beers, delish bites and weekly events for the community to get involved in – stop by on Thursdays for the Farmer’s Market and live music or swing in on Sundays for Yoga at the Brewery.
The Sour Barn, Ogden Area – This is Broomtail’s sister location where they age their sour beers. If your taste buds are up for a pucker, try their Galloping Gose. While at the Sour Barn, learn a bit more about what make a beer a sour. Not really interested in the sour side of things, you can find Broomtail’s other craft beers on tap as well.
