Mill Whistle Brewing

1354 Lennoxville Road
Beaufort, NC 28516

Carteret County’s first brewery, Mill Whistle Brewing is a one-barrel brewery that focuses on exceptional craft beers. This Nano brewery produces just 31 gallons of beer in a batch. By focusing on small batches of beer, they have been able to produce a wide variety of styles of beer, locally-inspired ales, and IPAs.

The Beaufort-based brewery is located on the site of the 100-year-old Safrit Lumber Mill. The manual business operates with a hands-on approach and is a nod to everything local about Carteret County, from the reclaimed wood used for the beer crates, to the names of the beer.

These locally-inspired ales and IPAs include: Indignant Bullfrog, Speed Diva, Beer Princess, Hoi Toide, Pennywort, Speed Diva, Vacation Beer, Low Toide, Gas Can Red, Ballou Berry, Bofirt, Beerskool, Girl in a Rum Barrel, Black Zed, and Dingbatter Bock.

A solar water tank helps heat the water to 165 degrees Fahrenheit and the process goes from there to create the individual local beers. The fastest batch of beer is done in 30 days, while the slowest beer takes two years to be perfected.

While Mill Whistle Brewing does not serve food, they do offer complimentary beer snacks.

The new Tap Room hours are Thursday, 4 – 9 p.m., Friday from 3 – 9 p.m., Saturday from 2 – 9 p.m., and Sunday Noon – 6 p.m. Locally owned and operated.
