The Aviator Brewery located in Fuquay Varina has a very interesting history, and the name pretty much says it all! They opened in 2008 in an airplane hangar using dairy tanks which held about 300 gallons each. Due to the popularity of the beer, they moved to a larger location and have added several additions and fermenters. As of June this year they canned over one million cans of beer, pretty exciting! Their brewery offers tours Thursday through Sunday, please make sure to check out their website (address below) for more specifics.
In addition to the Brewery, there is also the Tap House and Smoke House. The Tap House is located at 600 E. Broad Street in Fuquay, opened in 2009 in an old train depot. If you ask me, they have the coolest locations going on! The Smoke House is located across the street and opened it’s doors in 2011. They have a wonderful catering menu, and you need to try their smoked wings when you get a chance, they are worth it!
