Nothing pairs better with the rush of an outdoor escapade than the perfect mouthful of ice-cold beer. North Carolina boasts the largest number of craft brewers in the American South. In the NC Triad, you can explore the burgeoning brewery scene with craft beer hubs in Greensboro, Winston-Salem, High Point, and Asheboro. 


Beer Pairs Best with Outdoor Adventure


Whether you are interested in traditional craft beers, innovative creations, or historical ambiances, a wide range of breweries and taprooms are waiting for you throughout the Triad. After your bicycle adventure along the Long Branch Greenway, stop by the Foothills Brewing for top-quality beers and seasonal beers, or step into the historic 1930s Hoots Roller Mill and storage warehouse to grab a delicious, inspiring, and affordable beer from Hoots Beer Co

Wherever your outdoor adventure takes you in the NC Triad, there is a brewery right around the bend! In the eastern part of the Triad, you can find Red Oak Brewery, one of the oldest craft breweries in North Carolina, which uses only malted barley, hops, water, and yeast to make its beer. Visiting the North Carolina Zoo or finishing your ATV experience in the Uwharrie Forest? Don’t miss the stop at Four Saints Brewing, featuring a diverse and impressive selection of beers, including the Berliner Punch Berliner Weisse, a gateway to sour beers made with seven flavors found in Hawaiian Punch. 


Biking, Running, Paddling, and Brewing 


In the Triad, you will find awarding-winning beers, laid-back atmospheres at brewers like Brown Truck Brewery, or event-filled breweries that feature yoga, run clubs, and BBQ smoke-offs like Oden Brewing Company. Suppose you are looking for even more variety. In that case, breweries like Goose and the Monkey Brewhouse offers a wide selection of inventive craft beer, a fully functional coffee bar, and dining provisions, including Pour Folk Pizza and Pour Folk Provisions Co. 

From the west to the east, you will find Skull Camp Brewing in Elkin and Haw River Farmhouse Ales in Saxapahaw, who use locally grown ingredients in their delicious beers. Both of these breweries are located near your next outdoor adventure.
