guide to North Carolina Breweries


Welcome canventioneers. Charlotte canvention is just weeks away. During your visit, many of you will want to visit as many of our breweries as you can. Below is my guide, along with some useful but somewhat arcane commentary.

There may be a few places you were expecting to see here. Greenshields in Raleigh suffered a fire. The restaurant was rebuilt but they are not brewing as of yet. Hops closed several breweries in the past couple of years.

Oh, there is a Miller/SAB brewery in Eden too.

Any questions or updates can be directed to

Coming to Canvention? Plan to visit my collection anytime Monday or Tuesday.
