There are over 200 craft breweries in North Carolina, making it the undisputed craft capital of the South. That makes Pinehurst the perfect place to take your group’s love of ales, lagers and more to the next level. At one of our local breweries, the folks behind the beer will walk your group through the entire process that turns grains, hops, yeast and water into America’s favorite frosty beverage. The local breweries include:

Pinehurst Brewing Co.

Set in the historic Village steam plant building that dates back to 1895, Pinehurst Brewing Co. is home to an array of craft beers brewed on site by head brewer, Hunter Downing. Regarded as one of the industry’s most accomplished brewers, Downing’s beers are well known for styles that are both welcoming and innovative.

Southern Pines Brewing Company

Founded by three former Green Berets stationed at nearby Fort Bragg, Southern Pines Brewing Company boasts a signature reputation. With a growing distribution throughout North Carolina, Southern Pines’ flagship beers Duck Hook and Man of Law have become prized local favorites.

Railhouse Brewery

Founded by military veterans, Railhouse Brewery is as dedicated to making great beer as they were to serving our country. With beer distributed in the Carolinas, Georgia and South Korea, Railhouse’s spacious taproom is a great spot to enjoy ever-changing, experimental small batch brews.
