I had the great pleasure of meeting the founders of Natty Greene’s Brewing Company, Kanye Fischer and Christ Luster, this week along with Bob High. These UNC graduates took their expertise to the restaurant business in the mid-90s. In 2004, the pair realized their dream of opening a brewpub. Natty Greene’s Pub & Brewing Co. was born in the city of Greensboro within a renovated c.1895 three-story building on the corner of Elm and McGee Streets in what was once known as Hamburger Square. Their beers became so well demanded by locals for its expert craftsmanship and superior quality.
Once they began to manufacture for distribution, it was soon evident that they could not keep up up with demand. In late-2010, to keep up with growing demand and prep for taking the beers statewide, the production facility/bottling plant underwent a transformation taking capacity from 6,000 barrels (1 barrel = 31 gallons) to more than 20,000 barrels. At there two locations in Greensboro, they offer 12 amazing craft beers on tap including 5 year round offerings: Guilford Golden Ale, Buckshot Amber Ale, Southern Pale Ale, Old Town Brown and Wildflower Witbier. And coming soon, they will be adding Troy and Sons Moonshine to their offerings!!
