When the business plan was hatched, the Pyatts bought the assets of a defunct brewery in CO, flew out there, rented a U-haul and brought it home to NC. Of course, it stayed in a garage for three years while we searched for an appropriate building. We finally found a spot in Glen Alpine, NC. While it didn’t have any glass in the windows and ivy was growing inside, the price was right at $200 per month. There weren’t many turn key breweries back then so the pieces and parts were cobbled together from dairy equipment or hand made; but we made beer and sold our first kegs to Barley’s, Mellow Mushroom and The Bier Garden in Asheville. That produced enough money to buy some ingredients, make another batch….rinse and repeat. Fast forward to today. Seventeen years later, we’ve grown organically into a 30 barrel Sprinkman brewhouse that is shinier than we ever imagined during those humble beginnings.
