10 New coastal breweries hoping to open before 2023.


Coastal beer lovers can celebrate because there are new brews coming to Wilmington and our surrounding beaches. Craft breweries in the Port City are growing and expanding production, and we’ll see several new spots open within the next year. The unique craft-beer culture of the coast has something for everyone, and we’re anxiously awaiting these new breweries to open.

Craft beer on the coast is anything but boring, and we hope that brewing continues to boom. With an overflowing supply of community-centered events, and innovative new brews there’s something really special about our Coastal craft beer culture.
