Cheers to the Beers Trail
Start your day with a brunch at High Point's Liberty Steakhouse & Brewery, offering brunch on Sundays. Make sure to order a hearty selection such as Eggs Benedict Florentine or their Classic Shrimp and Grits! You can tour the brewery but you'll need to schedule that in advance. Try the Miss Liberty Lager that won best in show at the NC Brewer's Guild. The Claddagh Restaurant and Pub also serves brunch on Saturdays and Sundays starting at 9:30 a.m. Enjoy your brew and Irish dish on their covered and heated patio. http://www.google.com
The Brewer's Kettle opens at 11 a.m. and is a great stop after brunch. David Armstrong, the owner, and his knowledgeable staff will welcome you to the retail shop. It's not a store, it's an experience! There are over 500 beers in stock and over 200 wines, meads, and sakes to try. They serve 20 drafts and wine by the glass at their full service bar that includes a fine sampling of cigars. The Beer Advocate gave them a 97 rating. They have beer and wine tastings regularly so be sure to follow them on Facebook.
If you have not dined at a "Blue" establishment, then here is your chance to try Blue Rock Pizza and Tap. This is not your standard pizzeria. With over 30 toppings, 10 cheeses and 5 sauces, you cannot go wrong. They have 19 specialty pizzas including "Stairway to Freebird", "Mexicali Blues," "Trippin' Billies," and "Ball of Confusion" just to name a few. Gluten free options are also available. Pair the perfect brew with your favorite pie & tap. They have 20 beers on tap and 50 bottles in stock.
Interested in souvenirs and gifts? Visit Potent Potables. They have an array of unique gifts, wine, and beer. Be sure to sample the tap of the day, work in a game, and stay for live music.
Goofy Foot Taproom, a retail beer and wine store just celebrated their one year anniversary. What's really cool about them is they feature beer from local, regional and national breweries. You can bring your own food or call in a delivery from one of the local restaurants. If you're craving a hoppy IPA or a refreshing pilsner, you'll want to check out Small Batch, located in the same shopping center as Goofy Foot Taproom. Small Batch is not only famous for their brews but you'll want to save room for their famous brussell sprouts and tasty burgers!
Uptowne High Point, located on North Main Street, just minutes from downtown, has become quite the nightlife scene. Before settling down with a cold beer and some music at one of the local favorites, you'll want to get some dinner. Sweet Old Bill's is a newer restaurant that just happens to be next door to Brown Truck Brewery. SOB's, for short, has a menu that will appeal to the masses. You'll find everything from robust salads to brisket, barbeque and burgers. A favorite is always the brisket nachos!
Dog-friendly, great atmosphere and live music are not the only reasons a visit to Brown Truck Brewery should be on your bucket list. Did you know they won multiple awards before they even opened their doors? Great American Beer Festival Medals include; 2016-Very Small Brewing Company of the Year, Very Small Brewer of the Year, Gold-American Light Lager, Silver-Dry Hopped Saison and Saison.2018-Silver-Dry Hopped Saison. Now that's something to be excited about!
