Hillman Beer is family owned brewery, taproom and restaurant. The venue's industrial vibe mirrors the building's history as a former 20th-century hosiery and sock manufacturer. Speaking of family, your well-behaved dog is also welcome at Hillman.

Old Fort is a N.C. Mountain Trout Town and the brewery borders that designated trout stream. Choose outdoor creekside picnic tables or relax indoors with awesome creek views in an open-air setting. The menu features burgers, wings, salads, and appetizers plus vegetarian and vegan options. Hillman focuses on quality while creating the traditional pub-style experience.

It's also one of 11 stops on the local High Spirits Trail. Check their social media for special events such as paint and sip.
