Welcome to Pitt Street Brewing Company. We are so glad you’re here! We’ve come a long way since the days of the old Coca-Cola Bottling Plant. The brewery’s founders made an investment in an area that will blossom and help revitalize the community, as well as meeting a market need. The investment group, made up of Greenville locals and partners in western North Carolina, raised more than $2 million to purchase the building and equipment.
The historic space has been renovated to provide a memorable, family-friendly gathering space for the community. The brew house is in full view of the public seating areas and features a 15-barrel brewing system, allowing for the production of more than 4,000 barrels of beer per year in nearly a dozen varieties. The covered bier garden in front and the outdoor space in the back are both pet-friendly.
The building, a contributing resource within the Dickinson Avenue National Register Historic District, was built in 1926 with a two-story addition added in 1935. It has been largely unused since 1982 and has become the inspiration for one of the brewery’s flagship beers, called Ruinenlust, which is German for the love of old, abandoned buildings. The original interior and exterior of the building were preserved as much as possible during the renovation in order to maintain its architectural history.
