December 1st - High Branch Brewing

High Branch Brewing is a family owned and operated brewery located in the Gibson Mill in Concord, NC.

We’ve created a brewery/tap room space that is fun and lighthearted, while keeping the quality of the beer as top priority. High Branch produces a variety of styles, including Saisons, Sours, Hazy IPAs, Stouts, etc., something for everyone!
