Brewing & Distilling

The Twin Counties is home to many great craft brewers that are well known throughout the state for their tasty beverages. These breweries reflect the local flavor of our vibrant community. Many of the brewers are located in a one of a kind brewery incubator on the campus of Rocky Mount Mills. This restored cotton mill along the falls of the Tar River is also home to Class A office space, residences, restaurants, and a tiny house hotel. The 82-acre campus showcases a bold approach to historic preservation that honors the past while also breathing new life into this storied place. It’s a place to wander, to explore and be surprised — come grab a pint and be part of our story here in the Twin Counties.

Koi Pond Brewing Company

After years of home-brewing, I always dreamed of sharing my beer with more people as a professional brewer.

I use local, seasonal ingredients to showcase NC’s rich agricultural heritage whenever I can.
