The journey began years ago,in 2013, when Neil Gimon looked at the positions he had with some of the largest companies, and how many times he had been laid off, and decided to work to be in control of his own destiny. After being a home brewer for over 20 years and winning awards as well as thumbs up from people that drank his beer, Neil looked at the growing craft beer movement and thought ‘there are great breweries up in Charlotte, but nothing down here in Waxhaw. In fact, the closest brewery was over 23 miles away in Charlotte, and there is a beer hungry audience in the area that was looking to have a great craft brewery in their backyard!
After sharing his idea with his wife, Anita, they began to plan out the brewery, listening to advice from other brewery owners, as well as Neil taking classes for the International Brewery and Distillery test. They both centered on Waxhaw as the place for the brewery. Both loved the town, as well as the history. It took them a year and a half to find the perfect location. Right on Main Street of Waxhaw, in the old Volunteer Fire Department building. It was perfectly located, and had a floor that was 8 inches thick concrete, enough to support several fire engines, or a 10 Barrel Brewery! They were turned down by 9 banks for their Small Business Association Loan, before getting approval from a local bank. From there it took 6 months to close the loan, as well as 4 months of construction. The Fire House had great bones, but every electrical line had to be pulled out of the building, all of the existing plumbing had to be upgraded, a new air conditioner and heater had to be installed, as well as other improvements needed to brew beer.
Great beer. The IPA was one of the best I've had. We had a flight and all beers were good but the iPA was the best. Cool environment with garage doors. They had a food truck there as well. We will definitely be back.
My husband and I have passed this place by a few times, but with our hyperactive toddlers, the timing was never quite right. My sister is in town and was able to watch the kids for a few hours, queue a nice date afternoon with my husband!
We love this place. The atmosphere is relaxed and fun. They have great entertainment and the beer never disappoints. I highly reccoment going early and enjoying the day. It can get pretty busy. Dog and kid friendly which bring a nice crowd.
My husband and I wanted a pandemic treat. I got a cider which wasn't too sweet, and my husband got a beer which he thoroughly enjoyed. We were able to sit outside and felt it was a Covid safe environment, but I also liked the fact that this big airy establishment is nestled in a historic area with just enough going on to be interesting.
I'm not a big beer drinker, but in visiting my parent's new town, we knew that we needed to go to this brewery as it seems to be a Waxhaw staple. Well, let me say, it was great!
