Foursquare Tips

  • Try a pint of Carver Sweet Potato.
  • Play a song on the awesome jukebox!
  • Check out the Conde Nast Traveler's Fullsteam Brewery review. They're a fan of the plow-to-pint approach and the "forager" series, as we all are.
  • Try any of their Plow to Pint beers, which are made with North Carolina agricultural products. Try Hogwash, a hickory-smoked porter; Carver Sweet Potato and First Frost, a wild persimmon ale.
  • First Frost - great high gravity with persimmon that's subtle, not overly fruity
  • This place is dog-friendly, so feel free to grab a pint with your four-legged favorite.
  • Oh god! Don't get the basil beer is smells like chicken poop. I don't think I can get the taste out of my mouth.
  • One of the best breweries around. Great beers with standard and unique choices. Love the atmosphere.
  • Summer basil is delicious.
  • I think the Cackalacky is now my favorite!
  • Try a beer from the Forager series. Maybe with local fruit. First Frost in particular is fantastic.
  • Contrary to what that one donkey says, summer basil is delicious.
  • Trivia is good fun!
  • Come with a clean palate/flush your tastebuds with water, so you can taste the wonderful complexity of these beers! Then fill up on whatever awesome food truck is parked outside.
  • Love getting the half pints ($2 each!) and sampling different brews. The bourbon beer is fantastic - and so is the people watching. If you're hungry, hit up the food trucks.
  • First Frost. It changes you.
  • Love the carver sweet potato lager. Fab food trucks outside, Nom Nom
  • It's not Rocket Science - try the Rocket Science IPA!
  • Great hangout spot! Super casual, even kid friendly with ping pong and old school pinball machines. Love their beers.
  • Not a hop head? Carver sweet potato is awesome, as is the El Toro cream ale (though it's weak). And try the pear cider if they have it on tap.
