There’s no shortage of great breweries in and around Hickory. With such a tremendous variety of style and atmosphere, there’s something for everybody. Whether you’re looking for a relaxed patio setting with friends and a pale ale, or a cozy interior with a soothing stout, you’re bound to find a taproom that suits your tastes. Get to know a few local institutions below:

Granite Falls Brewing Company

Built into a 116-year-old former soda pop site, Granite Falls has become a go-to Hickory hangout.  When you visit, you may hear music on the dog-friendly patio or explore the history of the old Granite Bottling Works. On draft, the year-round offerings include the bold Hoppalachia, and springtime arrivals include the light but tart Blueberry Falls.

Fonta Flora Brewery

For a decidedly rustic vibe, check out the agriculturally-inspired Fonta Flora. The master brewers combine English and Belgian brewing sensibility with true Appalachian resources. You can taste the storied region’s unique terroir in the sweet honey of the Ticky Ticky Buzz, or the Appalachian heritage red corn in the Bloody Butcher grisette.

Appalachian Mountain Brewery

Enjoy a good brew for a good cause at Appalachian Mountain Brewery, who donate a portion of their taproom sales to local nonprofits and charities. Perineal offerings include the award-winning Boone Creek Blond Ale, chocolate and coffee Porter, and a variety of ciders. The drinks lighten up for springtime, with seasonal brews like the crisp Belay on Saison V11, the fruity yet bitter Dry County Pale Ale, and the Hoppy Snazzy Fresh, whose name tells you everything you need to know.

Blowing Rock Brewing

In addition to a selection of fine craft brews, Blowing Rock Brewing also features its own inn, complete with flat-screen TVs, air conditioning, and spa-inspired toiletries. Downstairs, brews range from the floral and citrus High Country Ale to the rich Big Chocolate Porter. In the springtime, don’t miss the refreshing Mountain Spring Juicy Hopped Blonde Ale.
