The Duck-Rabbit Craft Brewery
Paul Philippon was happily pursuing a career teaching philosophy when the siren song of brewing beer, his hobby since 1987, could no longer be ignored. He went to work for a succession of three breweries until he felt his experience was sufficient to try to open a brewery himself. The Duck-Rabbit Craft Brewery was born! Located in the small rural town of Farmville NC, Duck-Rabbit specializes in dark, flavorful beers. Duck-Rabbit sold its first beer in August of 2004 and has been growing steadily ever since.
Foothills Brewing began in 2004 in Winston-Salem, NC, and has evolved into one of the top craft brewing operations in the southeast United States. Ranked among ratebeer.com’s 100 best breweries in the world, Foothills has garnered numerous awards for their beers, including seven Great American Beer Festival medals and three World Cup Beer medals, more than any other North Carolina-based brewery.

Highland Brewing Company
Drawn by a lush mountain landscape and pristine water, a Jamaican immigrant of Chinese descent founded Highland Brewing in 1994. Highland’s name honors the Scots Irish who settled in the Appalachian range in the 18th and 19th centuries. Crafting only the finest beers with distinct consistency, Highland is Asheville’s first brewery since Prohibition. It is credited with igniting the craft beer industry in an area seeking economic growth. Now in its second generation of family ownership, it carries on the tradition of quality, integrity and respect.
Mother Earth Brewing
Founded in 2008 by father and son-in-law team Stephen Hill and Trent Mooring, the mission of Mother Earth Brewing is simple: make great beers close to the environment. Together with Brewmaster Josh D.

Gold by the U.S. Green Building Council.
