If you plan to visit Western NC, please check beforehand to see if the area is safe following the recent flooding. Officials have closed some sections of Pisgah National Forest (including Forest Heritage Scenic Byway and Blue Ridge Parkway stops) to keep visitors out of danger. Please respect signage and local guidance.
While there are so many fun and exciting things to do, we found that our favorite was cruising through breweries in Greenville, Farmville, and Winterville in Pitt County, Eastern North Carolina. Thanks to a local tourism initiative, you can do that while also consuming some legendary North Carolina barbecue.
For this article, we’ll stick to each of the breweries in Greenville and what we drank. In case you’re eager to chow down, we also created a guide to the best restaurants in Greenville.
Our map displays the location of all these breweries in Greenville and around Pitt County. For more info about each one, continue reading.
Note: While visiting these breweries in Greenville and its surroundings, please drink responsibly and coordinate a designated driver.
Breweries in Greenville
The Visit Greenville-created Pitt County Brews and Cues Trail helped us explore these five breweries in Greenville, by pairing them with five incredible and historic Eastern NC barbecue restaurants.
From the hazy IPAs at Pitt Street Brewing to the whole hog cue at Skylight Inn, you’ll find that pairing barbecue and beer just works together.
Now that you know about this fun initiative, let’s dig into those five amazing breweries in Greenville that deserve the attention of this article!
Pitt Street Brewing Company
630 Pitt St
Pitt Street Brewing sits inside in a former 1926 Coco-Cola Bottling Company building. The renovated space is perfect for families and the community coming together to enjoy a delicious brew.
They have great outdoor seating and the line-up of beers are always changing.
What we drank: Mirror for the Sun, a Lime Blonde Ale.
Uptown Greenville Brewing Company
418 Evans St
Located right in the heart of Greenville, Uptown Brewing Company is a great place to head for a pint. With a large space and rustic brick walls, the atmosphere is perfect for you to enjoy a couple of beers with friends.
With beers ranging from a crisp lager to a dark and heavy porter, there is something for everyone to drink at Uptown.
What we drank: Uptown Yacht Rock, a Pina Colada IPA
This Farmville Brewery is probably the biggest of names in the Greenville area.
The Duck-Rabbit Craft Brewery
4519 W Pine St
You’ve probably seen this iconic beer label in your grocery store. Distributed from Florida to Pennsylvania, Duck-Rabbit specializes in full-flavored dark beers.
But that logo? It comes from founder Paul Philippon’s former career in philosophy. Depending on how you look at it, the logo either looks like a duck or a rabbit!
Our last collection of Pitt County breweries sit in Winterville. Both are relatively new to the NC Beer scene but both are worthy of a visit.
Local Oak Brewing Company
2564 Railroad St
Local Oak is a new brewery in Winterville. Perhaps considered a nano brewery, this place packs huge flavors and vibes into its space.
Each time you visit, you’ll see a completely new draft list, so there is always a reason to come back! The taproom is small but efficient, but the outdoor beer garden is the draw.
Outside, you’ll see a giant 150-year-old oak tree that inspired the name, while also keeping you (and your beer) cool under its shade. If you’ve got them, bring your dogs to enjoy the vibe, too.
What we drank: Obscene Tangerine (hazy IPA).
Nauti Dog Brewing Company
210 Main St, Winterville | Website
Brand new to Winterville, Nauti Dog is housed in a historic brick building with taps that will excite.
Themed after the owner’s dog, Rascal, running down the beach with a bikini top in his mouth, the beers are exceptional and pack a nice punch. If you aren’t a beer drinker then you can find wine and cider available, too.
What we drank: Grapeshot IPA
