Our destination: Wilmington, NC, an energetic college town across the Cape Fear River, with lots to see and do, and lots of well-established or maybe more-and-coming breweries and brew pubs.
Now out we stopped at Flytrap Brewing Company, a youthful nano-brewery which first opened up in October of 2014. My dad, knowing our desire to have travel and brew pub exploration, sent us a news article regarding the brewery. We are in a position to not steer clear from the vehicle trip to NC to take a look.
The brewery and taproom are housed within the smallish white-colored-colored-colored brick building on a corner of N fourth St and Walnut, don’t enable the size fool you. Flytrap features a 2 BBL brewing capacity – meaning one batch is roughly 27 cases of beer, or about 12.5 corny kegs, for your reference – with four primary fermenters on hands so that they maintain their taps billed obtaining a distinctive volume of American and Belgian style ales, that are constantly altering. There are lots of standards, however, you will not ever define what’s on tap.
Every day inside our visit they’d four Flytrap choices and five guest beers available. The friendly barman put us two flights which incorporated Flytrap’s Hoppy Tripel, Rehder’s Red, a Saison and Belgian Blond. All very tasty as well as other, specifically the Tripel that was created having an ample amount of American hops. I’d consider it as being a Tripel IPA, when there can be this sort of beer. I suppose there can though. We percieve a number of IPAs Black IPAs, Rye IPAs, the Belgian Tripel IPA?
Cindy’s fave was the Rehder’s Red, though she appreciated the Hoppy Tripel too, she’s interested in Belgian style ales and IPAs.
The guest brews on tap were good too, along with the selection changes up regularly such as the Flytrap original choices. Our flight incorporated Double Barley’s Touché IPA, Left Coast Hop Juice, Eel River’s Emerald Triangular IPA, plus a handful of others I didn’t make certain to jot lower.
The elements is extremely relaxed, as well as awesome. A commercial edge getting a few woodsy charm. They’ve an outdoors sitting area to seize some dinner within the featured food truck every Friday and Saturday, sometimes Thursday, between 7pm and 10pm, together with live music.
