Carteret County's first brewery, Mill Whistle Brewing is a one-barrel brewery focused on exceptional craft beers. This nanobrewery produces just 31 gallons of beer in a batch. By focusing on small batches of beer, we have been able to produce a wide variety of styles of beer. These locally-inspired ales and IPAs include Indignant Bullfrog, Speed Diva, Beer Princess, Hoi Toide, Pennywort, Vacation Beer, Low Toide, Gas Can Red, Bofirt, and Beerskool.
Mill Whistle Brewing is on the site of the 100-year-old Safrit Lumber Mill. While this mill closed in the 1970s, the lumber yard next door is still in operation today.
