Skull Camp Brewing
I was able to sample 4 of their current flavors on a flight that came on a paddle made from an old wine barrel. The Not So Pale Ale which is right in line with some of the best IPA's in the state. I then had the Flame Thrower Red which is a really good brew in it's own right. The Black Belt Stout is a true stout. Most breweries and even the larger and more experienced ones will brew a Stout but they are usually a Porter at best. The Black Belt Stout is a stout if I've ever had one. The Bonfire Old Ale is a very close English Pub style bitter. This would be my "go to" beer for this brewery and I would love to have a Cask version of this one. I actually mentioned this to Ken and Kent and while they agreed they also reminded me of their small scale. Maybe by the time you make your trip this dream will become a reality.
This brewery has the right vision and attitude to be a successful NC Brewery. These guys have a passion and love for the craft and it shows with the quality of brews and excitement you see by talking to them. Take a visit and have a brew on the scenic patio and tell them NC Beers sent you.
