I enjoyed the vibe in this place and there were certainly a wide variety of people across different ages, demographics, and dress... It was on a Saturday late afternoon (holiday weekend) and there were a lot of people taking the tours. Having not been to Kinston for close to 10 years, the space is not what I was expecting. Clean, modern decor and fairly decent sized open space with tables and a U shaped bar.

Beers were well poured using appropriate glassware - including different styles of glassware depending on the style of beer. Beers were served at a proper temperature with an appropriate amount of head.

Bartenders were friendly and helpful. I enjoyed chatting with them about the beers and they made a point of letting me know about the beers they had available I might not be able to find elsewhere.

Decent selection with a handful of beers besides the widely available ones.

I’ve never been to Miami as an adult, but according to my wife’s coworker, Mother Earth’s interior is what you might expect at a bar on South Beach. A long U-shaped bar sits in the center of a big room with all kinds of funky furniture ranging from cushy chairs to those egg-shaped chairs from Men in Black fame. Blue lights blink up from the floor under the bar stools and also cast from within half the bar top. A giant fabric curtain streams across the far end of the room.

Interesting. Not bad, just interesting.

As for the beer, it’s just not my bag. Everything tasted as it should and there were not quality issues at all, I’m just not a big fan of the lighter end of the German spectrum, i.e., kolsches, blondes and wits. Even their dunkel lager didn’t really strike my fancy.

On the plus side, they have a regular assortment of taproom-only experimental brews. But again, nothing really struck my palette right. The bartender was nice and knowledgeable, though, so points for that.

On the whole, I certainly wouldn’t dissuade anyone from dropping in, I just wouldn’t recommend making a special trip either.

Beautiful, trendy taproom. Seems out of place in Kinston, NC. Looks like it should be in NYC. Good variety of beers. They fill growler & have a gift shop attached where you can buy bottles & miscellaneous merchandise. If you're a beer geek, go on Friday & stop by Duck-Rabbit in Farmville first.
