Cape Fear Ale Trail | Stop 3 Waterline Brewing Company in Wilmington


Under the Cape Fear Memorial Bridge is where you’ll find this delightful taproom and brewery.

The flavors come from around the world, but Waterline Brewing Company is centered on the community they serve.

You won’t find a TV in the taproom so it’s a great place for conversation. Most nights of the week there are ongoing community events. Everything from comedy shows to plant swaps the range of community gatherings provides something for everyone. Even four legged leashed friends are welcome to Waterline.

The beer garden outside has great views of the Cape Fear Memorial Bridge, and almost nightly you’ll find a different local food truck parked here for some supreme eats.

Waterline Brewing Company has a some mentionable core craft beers on tap like their Waterline Kolsch which is a German style beer meant to be drunk in a thin glass. It’s crispy, light and almost straw like in color. It doesn’t have a terribly high ABV content, and is the perfect pale beer for a summer evening.

Waterline Brewing Company has been serving the community for over seven years, and recently upgraded their brew tanks to expand production.

You won’t find Waterline Brewing Company’s beers anywhere outside of Wilmington they’ve always been locally focused.
