Our Story

We love craft beer and hope you do too. We are here to provide a variety of exceptional brews in a casual family friendly setting where good times, community, and new friendships are formed around sharing a great pint! With a stage for live music, outdoor beer garden, and small plate food, we know we will have something for everyone that visits us in Uptown Shelby.

Our beers are handcrafted in small batches using the finest ingredients possible. We take pride in sourcing our ingredients from around the world and from our own backyard in North Carolina. Quality ingredients are the start of a great brew. Beer is a lot like food, the better the ingredients the better the end product!

From the start, we have been dedicated to preserving history in our area. The facility where we are located is over 100 years old (built in 1909) and was formally the Hudson Department Store. Wood throughout the facility was reclaimed from the old Dover Mill, at one time the largest employer in the county. Many of our local patrons have family members that walked and worked on the flooring we used.

About the Brew House

We brew on a 7BBL (220.5 gallon) system with the capability of double batching into 15BBL fermenters! When test batching or creating small-batch brews we use our 1BBL brewing system.

Stop by sometime

Bring your friends or come create new ones with us in the first micro-brewery in Cleveland County. Being located between Asheville and Charlotte on highway 74 creates the perfect place to meet in the middle for a pint with far away friends! We hope you will join us and fall in love with the beautiful Uptown Shelby area. Make sure to visit the Earl Scruggs Center or catch a show at the Don Gibson Theatre while you are in town.
