OUR HISTORY

9 North Front Street Wilmington

Historic Downtown

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.

What’s in a Name

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.

We are the ILM OGs

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 OG! 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!
