Wilmington's craft beer scene has really blown up in recent years and Wilmington Brewing is definitely at the top of the heap! The brewery is up the road from UNCW, not as exciting or interesting a location as say down on the water front, but it's a cool older building that's easy to find and comfortable to hang out in. The taproom is pretty small. Bartenders are super helpful answering questions and telling you about the tap choices. They make some great beer here. The vibe here is enhanced by an old record player spinning vinyl, nice touch!

One thing they could improve on is the presentation of the pours. They are currently pouring into clear plastic solo cups. Adding real glasses would be nice. Otherwise, you can leave with anything on tap in a crowler and they usually have something canned to sell also.

Went with some family while in town. Small taproom attached to a homebrewing store. 12 things on tap. Had a taste of all of them. Some really good. Most average. IPAs are their schtick, it seems. Those were the best and I'd had some IPAs from them in crowlers and enjoyed them. People were nice. Pet friendly. They just started distro'ing kegs the week before, so we hopped around back and chatted with a couple guys as they were filling kegs. Overall, probably the best brewery in Wilmington.

Great place located on the side of their homebrew store. Long, straight bar in front of you when you walk in, with some table seating along the window front and to your left. They have a turntable cranking out some pretty sweet vinyl. The staff is great; laid back, friendly, and knowledgeable. They had 7 beers on-tap while we visited, and plenty of swag. They do growler fills, and on Fridays they have limited release casks. Awesome, laid back atmosphere. Worth a visit.

Very friendly neighborhood brewery. A great place to go for a pint or a growler fill. Attached to a killer homebrew store (Wilmington Homebrew Supply). I have never not been welcomed or had anything but a great time there.
