The Awl Point Pilsner is our version of the world’s most popular beer style that originated in Bohemia more than 100 years ago. Our pils is a medium bodied lager with a dense, white head. Unlike mass market “pilsners” bastardized with corn & rice, our Awl Point is crafted with 100% Pale Malt, and Spalter Select and Saaz hops. Much like the original brewers of this style intended. Sharp like the point of its namesake, the Awl Point Pilsner is perfect for a hot Carolina day.
Playing their lutes, the troubadour rock stars took the center stage in 14th century England. But to us the real rock star was the Luthier. The craftsman who lovingly carved the wood and shaped the instrument that was the source of the music. Like these artists, our mild-mannered Luthier Mild Ale sits in the background doing its yeoman’s work of satisfying your palate with smooth malt-centered flavors, while you perform the music in your world. Don’t let its humility fool you, this is a masterpiece.
The Biscuit Joiner ESB is a taproom essential with its woody aroma that recalls the paneled comfort of an English pub. Rich mahogany in color, our Extra Special Bitter tempts with aromas of orange marmalade, balanced by a soft malted toffee finish. Like a skilled carpenter, our brewer has joined the sides of malt and hops perfectly to bring you our version of this classic English-style crafted beer.

Our Ultisol Red IPA is a beautiful crimson India Pale Ale that is in part inspired by the red clay of North Carolina. The Red India Pale Ale is sculpted using a touch of rich barley to shape its flavor and body with the addition of Centennial hops to create a blend of vibrant citrus and soft pine hop aromas. Molded to balance the caramel maltiness with its abundance of hops, our Red IPA welcomes you to sit back, relax, and marvel its beauty.
Our cask beers are kept at a cellar temperature and poured through a hand pump known as a Beer Engine, which is how European ales have been served for hundreds of years. Cask beers are naturally carbonated unlike the forced carbonation of most modern ales and lagers. The drinking experience is a softer mouthfeel and oftentimes, a more intense and pleasant aroma with hoppy beers like India Pale Ales. A delicious cask beer is a wonderful way to enjoy beer while appreciating its tasty history.
Root beer may be a American invention, but our Brewmaster crafted his own housemade recipe for a deliciously fresh soda with Vanilla, Wintergreen, Licorice, Sarsaparilla, Anise, and Burdock Root flavors. It is an instant non-alcoholic classic and a must try!

We delved into the ancient style of Monkology to brew this Abbey-style ale. The Angel Gilded Abbey Dubbel is an exceptionally complex ale with many interwoven flavors crafted in the spirit of the Belgian monastic beers. Our Abbey Dubbel’s nose is reminiscent of Autumn fruits, raisins and prunes with a dry almond-like finish. We may not be able to turn water into wine, but this is a luscious red wine alternative for the faithful and apostates alike.
In Irish Music, Ornamentation is achieved by adding extra notes within the basic notes of a tune to “decorate” it. Our O’rnmentation Irish Stout has a robust roast flavor complemented by a smooth, full-bodied mouth feel. Flaked and an extra pinch of roasted Barley are key elements in making an Irish Stout what it is. The generous addition of East Kent Golding hops lends a bitterness as the roasted Barley adds to a dry espresso-like finish. The O’rnamention Irish Stout is a sessionable beer filled with rich, complex coffee aroma mingled with light notes of liqourice.
We trust that you will find our forged Steel Hammer Imperial Stout nothing short of a magnificent beer.
