Nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Asheville, North Carolina, is Highland Brewing Company. Asheville's first legal brewery rolled out its first kegs in December 1994. Built almost entirely of retrofitted dairy equipment, the original brewery in downtown Asheville could produce up to 6,500 barrels per year. At the current location, 10 minutes from downtown, they now have capacity to brew over 30,000 barrels annually, with room to grow. Highland's fresh, finely crafted ales are available in seven southeastern states. As North Carolina's only regional brewery, Highland produces an impressive array of beers, from the best-selling Gaelic to their popular winter seasonal, Cold Mountain Ale.

Primal Brewery was founded in 2013 and is a micro-brewery focused on the production of a variety of quality small-batch beers.

Webster’s defines the word “primal” as being essential or fundamental and from our perspective quality beer IS essential and fundamental to a good quality of life. To that end, we strive to brew beers infused with flavor and attitude seeking to satisfy the appetites of Traditionalist’s and Progressive’s alike.

Our brewery and tap house is located in Huntersville, North Carolina at 16432 Old Statesville Road just north of the Huntersville town square. For more information and to keep track of our progress please follow us on Facebook at Primal Brewery.

District 9 Brewing Company is a craft microbrewery located in North Carolina with the purpose of brewing and sharing outstanding beer that unites people together. First envisioned in July 2009 over a pot of boiling wort, the founders (below) believed that every person, and beer, has a story and decided to start a brewery where both could be shared.

Founded in 1999 by Brothers Charlie and Ed Shelton, Shelton Vineyards was envisioned as a new agricultural resource for an area once dependent on tobacco farming. Located in the heart of North Carolina’s Yadkin Valley, Shelton Vineyards is 180 degrees from any winery you will find on the West Coast. The distinctive characteristics of Shelton wine come from the unique soil and climate of the Yadkin Valley. This helps give Shelton wine an inimitable taste that holds its own against any wine from any area in the world. We invite you to visit us, try our wine and see if you agree that our wine is as unique as the area we are in.

White Street Brewing Co., a unique production brewery, opened its doors in September 2012, as Wake Forest's first brewery. Built in the 1930's as a Chevrolet car dealership, the building was renovated into a distinctive beer manufacturing facility. We're so proud of our impressive brewhouse that it's in full view for all to see. No glass windows or walls to hide it.

From our taproom that has exquisite wood accents and original exposed-brick walls, you can enjoy our tasty brews, darts and great conversations. You might even catch one of our brewers in action. Located at 218 South White Street in historic downtown Wake Forest, White Street Brewing Co. is an experience and destination in the town's arts and entertainment district.

In 2002, our funky little Colorado grown brew-pub started stuffing our huge, voluminously hopped mutha of a pale ale in a can (Dale's Pale Ale). That not only began the craft-beer-in-a-can craze, but has grown to add a brewery to the hills of Pisgah National Forest in Brevard, NC and another in the Live Music Capital of the World, Austin, TX, in 2016. Cans keep beer fresher, longer by eliminating the damaging effects of light and ingressed oxygen while being infinitely recyclable and portable... taking them where your next soul saving adventure takes you.

“Birdsong Brewing is one of Charlotte’s newest microbreweries. Birdsong was founded in 2011 with a quest for better beer and a 5 gallon soup kettle. Our vision is similar to many of our favorite craft brewing mentors who have inspired us to open our own brewery: We strive to brew flavorful, unfiltered, quality craft beers for distribution in the Charlotte, NC area.

We are located in NoDa at 26th & North Davidson and we started retail distribution and tap room sales in December 2011. Our goal is to create outstanding beer, to have a low impact on the environment, and to create personal relationships and ties to the local community.”
