BearWaters Brewing Company

Bearwaters Brewing Company, Canton, NC

BearWaters Brewing Company in Canton, NC was a God send. The campground we were staying at was terrible and so this brewery came in very handy. Of the two IPAs they offered, our favorite was the Stiff Paddle. To be honest, the smell from the paper mill across the street was overwhelming and may have…

Pisgah Brewing Company

Pisgah Brewing Company, Black Mountain, NC

Pisgah Brewing Company in Black Mountain, NC (the outskirts of Asheville, NC) has become our favorite micro brewery. The brewery was built inside an old factory and is very rustic with a laid back, relaxed atmosphere.  The other parts of the building were still a working factory.  We’ve never been to Pisgah Brewing when we…

Colonial Beach Brewing Company

This is the main entrance to Colonial Beach Brewing. Loved that they have Yappy Hour!

Colonial Beach Brewing in Colonial Beach, Virginia was a great find.  Colonial Beach is a small tourist, beach, historic town on the Potomac River and this was the only brewery we could find.  It was a small, friendly brewery with two taprooms.  One that faced the main street and is the one most people find…

Crooked Hammock Brewery

Crooked Hammock Brewery, Lewes, DE

Crooked Hammock Brewery in Rehoboth Beach, DE was not our favorite micro brewery. They have a great outdoor seating area with fake grass, hammocks, fire rings, and lots of seating. They’re dog friendly and even have doggy bags posted around in case of an accident. Sounds great, right? Well, they also have “just OK” way…

Strangeways Brewing

Strangeways Brewing, Fredericksburg, VA

Strangeways Brewing in Fredericksburg, VA was, well, strange. This is another micro brewery built in a converted warehouse, nice. They had a huge (the biggest we’ve seen) selection of beers that we liked, but didn’t love. The brewery also had a huge bar and huge first come seating area that we never saw anywhere near…

Adventure Brewing Company

Adventure Brewing Co., Fredericksburg, VA

Adventure Brewing Company in Fredericksburg, VA was not my cup of tea, errrr, beer, however Lora liked the brewery. It’s built in a warehouse in a very industrial neighborhood right next to the railroad (that’s good). At the time we visited, they had 9 beers in rotation and food served on premise, but I didn’t…
