Hillman Beer is family. Brothers Brad and Greig Hillman along with Greig's wife Brandi chose downtown Old Fort as their second brewery location. 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.
