Highland Brewing Company

In 1994, Oscar Wong opened his brewery called Highland Brewing Company in the Blue Ridge Mountains in Asheville, North Carolina.

The Mash House Brewing Company

The Mash House is a brewery and chophouse in the heart of Fayetteville, North Carolina. They brew strictly with traditional methods of the old world brewers. Zach Hart is the Mash House’s masterbrewer. Zach started brewing in 1998 with a degree in brewing science and engineering. He has received many awards for his unique beers.

The Duck Rabbit Craft Brewery

The Duck Rabbit Craft Brewery is a microbrewery in Farmville, North Carolina. Their first beer was sold on August 2004. Paul Philippon is the owner of the Duck Rabbit Craft Brewery, but he wasn’t always a brewer. He started his life first as a teacher at an University teaching Philosophy. In a book that he admires, called, “Philosophical Investigations” by Ludwig Wittgenstein, he came across the diagram of the duck rabbit. The duck rabbit looks either like a duck or a rabbit depending on the viewers perspective. When he decided to open his brewery he felt this design tied together his past to his present.

Tomcat Brewing Company

Tomcat was opened in 1996 in Raleigh, North Carolina. It was taken over by Pale Ale Brewery in 1997, which was subsequently taken over by Rock Creek Brewing from Virginia in 1999. Chesapeake Bay Brewing Co. then bought out Rock Creek in 2001, where they brewed until 2003, and were taken over by Edenton Brewery. The brewing space changed hands again in 2007, and Big Boss Brewing Company has been there ever since. Whew! (For a rundown of this transition, see this handy North Carolina Beer History site)

Pinehurst Village Brewery is located in Aberdeen, North Carolina. They opened in the year 1996 and are now closed.

Johnson Beer Company was founded in 1995 in Charlotte, North Carolina. This brewery is now closed.
