This is a nice place in downtown Wilmington. Both the staff and the patrons were very nice. I tried a sampler of beers which ranged from okay to good. We didnít order any food though. Overall I would definitely go back as it seemed like a cool place to hang out and have a few brews.

Good food and beer better than expected. Worth a visit. Best brewery in town arguably even if atmosphere is like a Fridays.

Been here many times. Right in the heart of downtown Wilmington. Some sidewalk seating, though somewhat tight with foot traffic. Inside is a somewhat narrow, but open area with seating at first, brewing to the left (behind glass), the bar is in the middle, and kitchen in the back. This place also has an upstairs mezzanine type seating. We were there for happy hour, $2 10oz pours and half price apps. Food was good. Service at the bar was attentive. Selection was good, with guest taps as well. Huge Whiskey selection as well. Also, I have kids and they are welcome. Overall - Highly recommend when visiting the Wilmington area.

Early dinner on vacation in coastal NC, nice street brewpub with brewing equipment on the left side. We sat at a table overlooking the equipment, service was prompt and friendly. There were 10 homemade drafts and a menu of above average American bar fare. We did flights of all samples, most were solid to above average. Food was tasty and pricing was very fair. Overall a good experience and glad we checked it out. If weíre ever in the area again growlers are available to go.

A nice brewpub in downtown Wilmington. I went here on a late Friday night and it (and the whole downtown) was incredibly packed. Looking back, Iím surprised we were able to park! There were no tables available and no seats at the bar, so ended up standing for most of the time. They have 5 year round beers (kolsch, raspberry wheat, ESB, Scottish ale, and IPA) and then a bunch of seasonals (I remember an oak-aged saison, single hop pale ale, bourbon barrel ESB, and there were a few others). The beers were pretty good. As an aside, the bar had one of the largest liquor collections I have ever seen. Which seems a little silly for a brewpub, but plenty of their clientele are not craft beer drinkers. I didnít get any food - it looked like typical pub fare. In all, the beers are good and worth a try, ambiance is a bit off-putting as it can get super crowded so try to get there early.

Came here for lunch on a Wednesday. Loved this place. Ten different brews on draught, and I was able to get through them all in a combination of two flights (save for one barrel-aged draught, which I got a sample of then happily bought a pint of). Food was actually really good for me, and I though the beers was, on the whole, well above average. Really enjoyed is and damn near convinced my wife to go back later that day.

Easy to find location in downtown Wilmington. Beware of long waits on weekend nights. I visited on a Wednesday evening and had to wait 25 minutes, but it was well worth it. The beers in the sampler of their year round brews ranged from OK to quite good--I recommend the Dram Tree Scottish Ale. The beer prices are a bit cheaper than the brewpubs and tasting rooms in my area, and the food is really good and reasonably priced. Definitely a place to check out if youíre in or near the area.

One of the better brewery visits Iíve been lucky enough to catch; and not simply because beer makes me happy. Indeed, to speak to the most important criteria: for a non-distributing brewery, they had some great stuff, and an impressive array to choose from. There werenít any I tried (of 7) that I disliked, which is awesome for a place with their production (though more than one were dominated by crystal malt). Just a good spot to visit, straight up.

Went here with some friends for beers and lunch. Was mostly empty for lunch though gets quite crowded at night I think. Lots of wooden decor, large open spaces, huge bar seating area but only 7-8 beers on tap. They had tasting flights, which I would recommend since some of their beers are quite poor to average. Food is large plate, heavier, and a bit of a corporate feel like an upgraded Chiliís. Fun place to go to in Wilmington, but doesnít have any good guest taps from nearby breweries like Duck-Rabbit, which seems to be counter productive.
