Waterline Brewery

Waterline Brewing Co. brews a wide variety of well-balanced styles including a refreshing kölsch-style ale, a full-bodied red ale, a spicy and hoppy rye IPA, and a uniquely tart gose brewed with basil and sun-dried tomatoes. Visit their tap room and enjoy a flight, a pint, or fill a growler to take home!

With the motto, “Brewed Under the Bridge,” the brewery and tap room occupy the restored Jacobi Hardware warehouse located under the Cape Fear Memorial Bridge. The structure was built in the 1940s and the owners worked hard to preserve the look and feel of the original heart pine construction. There are so many reasons to visit: free brewery tours, outdoor beer-garden seating with great views, free parking, special events, and live music and food trucks on weekends. Come and check it out for yourself!
