b'Drink Up Sandhills WineryB R E W E R I E S & W I N E R I E SThe emergence of craft beer across the United States began in the 1970s and was mostly confined to larger cities. A half century later there are more than 6,500 microbreweries scattered across the country, with many finding popularity in resort areas such as the North Carolina Sandhills. Great Beer. Great Food. Great Atmosphere.Thats our goal at Pinehurst Brewing Co. Were brewing great beer and smokin some of the best barbecue youll find anywhere. Come see us in the historic steam plant building in the Village of PinehurstPinehurst Brewing Co.A decade ago there was no craft presence here, now Pinehurst Resort brews its own beer and three other micobrews have been launched by military veter-ans.With four breweries within a 10-minute drive the area is starting to get some traffic as a craft beer destination, says Railhouse Brewerys Jason Hull. The craft beer industry is really, really unique from a relationship side, from all of us supporting one another, especially in what has until now been an under-developed craft market, adds Southern Pines Brewery Co. co-founder Jason Ginos. Its like a rising tide raises all ships. With more breweries in Moore County it actually helps all of us. The experiences are so different, with each brewery taking on the person-ality of the employees, the owners, the culture and brewing philosophy.
