Airplane themed brewery, with what looks like the hulls of old military planes decorating the walls. I think the beers are all named after them as well. We only tried 2 beers; one was good and the other great. They had pool, ping pong, and other games in different rooms around the place.

Great beer and friendly staff! Very cool environment and usually a local food truck on premises. Easy to lose track of time at this wonderful Carolina tap room ;)

Was in town for work and went to the brewery on a Wednesday night. It was pretty dead but it was extremely cold and I wasn't expecting a lot of people to be out and about. Did the flight and then had a few pints. All of the beers ranged from decent to good. Nothing amazing but all pretty good quality. The brewery/taproom had a pretty cool layout.

Stop #436 on my world brewery tour.

Monday early evening in October. Sat upstairs in the cozy/small tap room considering how big the building is from outside.

Had the Kolsch, 7% Belgian Blonde, Wit, and a pint of the very clean IPA.

Nice beers. Plan on going when it's nice so you can sit outside on the patio.
