In addition to our original location in Downtown Morganton, and our production facility and taproom in Nebo, we are excited to bring the taste of Appalachia to Optimist Hall in Charlotte. Our taproom will offer draught beer and packaged product available to take home. We are looking forward to bringing our rustic and savory libations to the Queen City.
