Great IPAs that transcend label boundaries, brown cow stout is delicious and smooth as all get out. Consistently seen lagers, saisons, sours, some wild ales, all of which failed to disappoint, with flying colors. This is a well-rounded brewery with an intellectually curious and super approachable brewmaster. Expect big things to come for FCB!

A wonderful local restaurant, its almost a landmark really. Fantastic, reasonably priced food, varied specials, and an incredible beer selection. A dozen plus taps, and a great bottle section. Everything from Chimay blue to barrel aged rasputin, with a great variety of Olde Hickory brews obviously. Would definitely recommend to anyone stopping in Hickory.

This place has a real friendly neighborhood vibe. Every time I have been here the crowd ranges from 20 to 70, couples, families, small groups and larger groups. Most people here probably live within 5 miles of the brewery. The beer selection is good - divided between traditional craft, sours, an obligatory milkshake IPA and then their barrel aged beers which are outstanding. A gem

this is not one of the big name new york breweries that we came here to visit this week. it was sort of a random stop for us, but after touring around the last few days, i can confidently declare this place to be one of the best operations in the city. the beer list is diverse as can be, nuanced lagers, funky saison types, fruited sour beer, barrel aged bretty stuff, hazy hops, they do it all, and we drank through a fair bit of the list, and there isnt a dud among them. the space is rad too, high ceilings in an old warehouse looking industrial space, but the christmas lights draped over the pile of barrels and the video of a fire burning on their projection screen gave it a cozy holiday feel nevertheless. they have done a lot with a little here, its mellow, with a long bar and minimal seating, and the brewery on the other side of the building but visible from the walk to the restrooms. they had a huge list of beers and a ton of cool stuff. norwegian saison with juniper branches was for me the winner, but we had killer beer from top to bottom here, including a nicely done pils type, a salted plum sour, and basically everything in between. they really are making some impressive beers here. service was cool, gal behind the bar was friendly and stoked, and the dude making the beers took the time to chat with us, really kind young dude who doesnt seem to be letting it go to his head. loved the beers in here, ill make a point to visit them again when i am back in the city. dont overlook this place, its as good as any of the hyped up beer destinations here...
