Fortnight flourished from a trend most immigrants are familiar with, the craving of foods/drinks from back home.
Fortnight Flourished from the cravings for Ales the British Owners enjoyed back home.
Stuart Arnold began brewing traditional English Style Beers in his garage, and shortly after with the help of David Wilkinson Fortnight was born. The brewery has been in operation since 2014, and recently underwent a bit of a face lift changing the outdoor look as well as adding Terminal B to the brewery for events. An outdoor beer garden is planned for 2020 which is sure to add to the already awesome atmosphere. When complete, patrons will be able to “bar hop” between the three onsite Bars.
English Style Ales take about 2 weeks to make, hence the name: Fortnight.
Olde Hickory Brewery has 4 locations in Hickory.
The Olde Hickory Brewery which is located within walking distance of two of its three restaurants in the heart of Downtown Hickory
Across the rail road tracks from the brewery you will find Olde Hickory Tap Room, right on Union Square in Downtown Hickory. Here you can enjoy all of Olde Hickory’s beers as well as a number of guest taps. While there, pair one of their delicious beers with a Burger or some Wings. You can’t go wrong!
If you are craving something more upscale, head to the Olde Hickory Station, a stone drop away from the Tap Room. The Station is outfitted with a bottle shop, market, bar, and dining area. All of Olde Hickory’s beers are on tap, as well as a number of guest taps. The food is delicious, whether you are in for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. It is our favorite place to visit when we are in town.
Last but not least is the location of the original brewery, Amos Howards Restaurant & Brew Pub. The brew pub is located in Longview off Hyw 70. With no shortage of OHB brews, great Pub fare, and a little bit of Olde Hickory Brewery history, this little gem is a great choice for a visit.
If a trip to the NC Mountains is in your future, make sure to stop by the Olde Hickory Brewery, you won’t be disappointed!
