Breweries & Spirits
Even in the heart of wine country, travelers can find top-notch breweries and distilleries. This is North Carolina after all, a leader in the production of craft beer and spirits.
Elkin is home to two unique craft breweries - Angry Troll and Skull Camp - both of which were started by winemakers. Skull Camp is known for brewing a range of fun brews that often cross styles. Skull Camp's tasting room is also a smokehouse restaurant, serving the finest smoked meats in the area. Angry Troll also featured a restaurant known for its wood-fired pizzas. Angry Troll is located in a historic building at 222 Main Street in Elkin.

Both offer a strong selection. Meanwhile, Mayberry Spirits bills itself as the "first legal distillery in Mayberry since Prohibition" and produces fine moonshine whiskey in small batches.
