Cheers to Craft Breweries in Greensboro
Experience NC craft beer in Greensboro! Beer connoisseurs and those that just like a “cold one” are invited to join in North Carolina Beer Month. Our five area breweries will fit your tastes with events throughout April.

Gibb’s Hundred Brewing Co. is a family owned and operated microbrewery in downtown Greensboro. Brewing a consistently high quality craft beer with a focus on ingredients and craftsmanship. Visit the taproom and be welcomed into the Gibb’s community; have a pint, learn about beer, take a tour or just relax with new friends. www.gibbshundred.com

Natty Greene’s Brewing Co. has been brewing beer since 2004, but the local owners have been in the pub business since 1996. During the mid-90’s not a lot of craft beer was available in the Triad and the owners sought to bring together unique craft beer, paired with great food at a great value. The concept was a hit as the brewery has grown to be the third largest in the state! www.nattygreenes.com

Pig Pounder Brewery is named after a beer launched by the Darryl’s restaurant chain in 1988. It is a local microbrewery specializing in producing outstanding authentic UK style beers including types like an Extra Special Bitter, an English Dark Mild, and a classic Milk Stout, for local venues. The brewery also features an interactive tasting room, made for connecting with guests and educating them more about beer. Tours available. www.pigpounder.com
