Class of 2016
Joymongers Brewing (GSO)
We just found out that former Natty Greene’s brewer Mike Rollinson and apartment developer Jim Jones plan to open Joymongers in downtown Greensboro right by Preyer Brewing Co. Triad City Beat broke the news on Sunday, and you can read more on our website.
Mansfield Brewing (GSO)
At the end of March, TCB broke the news that Bill Tyndall intends to open Mansfield Brewing on Oakland Street near the Blind Tiger in Greensboro. There is no date set for a target opening, and Tyndall couldn’t be reached for comment.
XII Tribes Brewing (HP)
Things are moving slowly for XII Tribes, which announced plans to open High Point’s second brewery a while ago. In the meantime, XII Tribes is teaching a homebrewing class at Hudson’s Hill in Greensboro on Oct. 24.
Brown Truck Brewing (HP)
TCB broke the story in January that Brown Truck would open in High Point’s Uptowne neighborhood. They’re hoping to open soon, maybe any day now, but co-owner Britt Lytle couldn’t be reached for comment.
Wise Man Brewing (W-S)
Wise Man initially planned to open in Greensboro — a story broken by TCB — but in July, TCB broke the news (noticing a trend yet?) that Wise Man would locate at the northern edge of downtown Winston-Salem instead. Renovations are already underway on the building next to Ziggy’s, owner Sam Victory said, and the plan is to open in late spring 2016.
