The Wilmington Ale Trail Passport is an opportunity for visitors and locals to receive vouchers at participating local breweries, bottle shops, and craft beer-focused bars and restaurants. Our weekly Passport Picks blog post will focus on the “best bang for your buck” at one of our participating venues.

Waterline Brewing
721 Surry St
Voucher: $5 off beverage, food, or merchandise

Waterline Brewing, located under the Cape Fear Memorial bridge, is a great spot to listen to live music on the weekends while sipping on some of the area’s best locally made beer.  As the weather gets a little cooler, their outdoor beer garden is an ideal location to bring friends or family to enjoy the outdoors. Don’t forget to checkout their Oktoberfest and many other events.

If you need a little more “culture” in your life, the other half of the building houses the Art Factory which showcases local artist. Wander around and look at paintings, sculptures, photographs, furniture , and other art available for purchase.

Your Wilmington Ale Trail passport includes a $5 voucher and I think the best time to use would be on “Thirsty Thursdays”. Select drafts are just $3. All day.  Get the Black IPA. It’s a local favorite.

Purchase a passport, and receive a $5 voucher to Waterline and additional vouchers at over 20 area locations.
