Not sure if this place should be reclassified as another outpost of Olde Hickory. All their taps are Olde Hickory, and thereís not much mention of the name Amos Howards at all, though I think the name was still on the building and maybe the menu? Anyway, I thought the beers I tried were okay, but nothing special. Sort of a depressing place, very dark and dingy. The food was okay at best as well. Nothing I would go out of my way for. Quite a few guest beers as well, and a bunch of bottles. Nothing too crazy though. Fonta Flora isnít more than 20 minutes away, and has far superior beer (but no food).

Had a little trouble finding the place, but it was well worth the effort. The huge barrels added a feeling of intimacy to the table seating, but took up a lot of space. Prices were fantastic and the beers are solid.

This one is hard to find if youíre. It looking for it. Its located in a small shopping strip thatís seen better days which means theres plenty of parking. Itís not a huge space especially since a number of the tables are made of of large barrels. Itís not an efficient use of space but it adds to the ambience they had 15 Olde Hickory on tap as well as over 100 local and regional craft in bottles. The service was friendly and engaging even if they didnít know a ton about beer. The beerís we had were solid and the was flavorful as well. Prices here are fantastic. 20-30% cheaper than Charlotte, The Triad, or the Triangle. Iím glad we visited.

I came here after the downtown OHB location, and I liked this one better. Definitely a low key atmosphere, think country dive bar. Seating options are innovative as you can sit inside converted barrels. Customer service was nice. The taps are all OHB brews, but there are a lot of other bottles behind the bar, though I never saw a bottle list. The one beer I had at both locations was better here. They were out of one beer I wanted to try. Samples are cheap. Did not try the food. Parking is ample. I had a good time.
