"A local Piedmont brewery is one of the seven best in the country, according to Business Insider.
Brown Truck Brewery in High Point was recently named by the magazine as the best “very small brewing company” in the U.S. The Great American Beer Festival holds an annual competition to find the best beers and breweries in the country. There are seven categories for breweries from small to big. More than 1,700 breweries participated and the winners were selected by a jury of more than 200 beer industry professionals, according to Business Insider.The jury selected the winners by tasting beer without knowing the brand names. The event took place last month in Denver, Colo. Brown Truck’s winning beers were the American Lager and Saison."

"The brewery will include a 10-barrel system and Joymongers will offer 15-18 of its own beers on tap. The plan is for 1/3 to be year-round, 1/3 to be seasonal and 1/3 produced in small batches, maybe only 100 pints each, Rollinson said. The beers will mostly be ales — as opposed to lagers — and will run the gamut style-wise, he said.
Rollinson plans to provide something new every week rather than focusing on large batches, and the partners don’t have an interest in widespread distribution. While they’d be happy to have kegs of Joymongers beer at local bars, the partners have no packaging plans at all."

"William L. “Fate” Oden operated his soft drink bottling plant in the 1930’s and 1940’s in the towering industrial building formerly known as Buffalo Rock Bottling Plant.

"Fainting goats are an oddity in the animal kingdom. While peculiar, their rarity makes them preferred by farmers and breeders alike. A fainting goat isn’t concerned when it does things differently because its whole life is a series of ups and downs. They don’t let others define their species as a whole because no goat is created equal. More importantly, when it falls down, it always gets back up again. At Fainting Goat Spirits, we embody the spirit of this animal. We don’t mass-produce our spirits in a factory; we’re a small family of distillers who use their hands from grain to glass. Our 100% North Carolina USDA certified organic grains are crafted in house to ensure quality flavor profiles. In this way, we’re an oddity too. We’re not interested in what the other guys do. Instead, we want to create spirits that challenge the average and routine. Try one of our bottles and we think you’ll agree that our take on spirits makes us stand out from the crowd."

"He had always wanted to start his own brewery, but with the amount of moving we had been doing, it was never the right time. When we realized that Greensboro had not kept pace with the changing regulation that was contributing to the craft brewery explosion in other areas, Mark approached the city to propose making Greensboro more appealing to microbreweries. He persuaded them to change the rules so we could open our own brewery and hopefully bring more breweries to the area as well. We decided to make Greensboro our permanent home for our family and our brewery."

"It all began about 10 years ago in a kitchen. Sam, a PhD chemist by day, bought himself
a homebrew kit and started experimenting. The only rules were to have fun, make something tasty, and clean up afterwards. As he got deeper into the hobby, Sam started bringing his brew to social events to share with friends, and soon developed a reputation as an accomplished brewer."
