Sitting directly across from the Beaufort Visitors Center and the Beaufort Historic Site, our building housed the Beaufort ABC store in the 1940s, the iconic Net House Restaurant, and most recently Old Salt Restaurant.
We purchased the building in early 2017 and quickly began renovations, curious to see what we’d learn in the process. The interior walls were covered with vertical siding made from old heart pine. Builder Mike Daly removed this old wood and has reused it beautifully as the ceiling for our front outdoor patio, the table tops for the taproom, our back-bar top, and in various accent places throughout the brewery.
The interior space is narrow and has an open framed ceiling more than 11 feet high. It has an old-meets-new feel with a painted concrete block wall, a concrete floor and a room filled with stainless steel brewing equipment.
Craft beer-loving patrons can sit at tables right next to the brewing area or at our concrete bar top and enjoy our fresh brews right from the tap. We have TVs above the bar and spin vinyl from our personal collections on select days of the week.
Our beers consist of American styled ales such as IPA, pale ale, blonde, milk stout and Belgian ales such as Belgian wit, Belgian pale, Belgian tripel and Belgian saisons.
We have 12 taps that will feature year-round favorites, seasonal beers and guest taps from other Carteret County breweries on the “Intracoastal AleWay.”
