Located in historic downtown Wilmington near the Cape Fear River, Front Street Brewery is rich with history.
Number 9 North Front Street has been home to many business establishments over the years. What began as a dry goods store in 1865 became the largest carpet store in the state with a dentist office upstairs, a purveyor of Kuppenheimer suits, the showroom of George Steiff with musical instruments and Crosley radios, and Foy, Roe & Company. This men’s clothing store occupied the building from 1940 until 1982.
Front Street Brewery began producing award winning craft beer in June of 1995 on, you guessed it, Front Street in the heart of downtown.
The building had sat vacant from 1982 until 1994 when we breathed life back into this historic corridor.
Front Street Brewery is North Carolina’s 7th brewery to open and Wilmington’s longest operating brewery. With nearly 20 breweries now in the area, FSB is still the Original! Now, we are able to work, collaborate, and drink with other craft brewers in our region to make some of the best beer in the state!
