Aviator Brewing Company – Fuquay Varina

In this episode of the NC Beer Buzz, the NCBeerGuys sit down with Andrew Jalbert, head brewer at Aviator Brewing Company in Fuquay Varina to talk about his brew experience, NC beer generally and the operations at Aviator. Yes, Aviator Brewing started in 2008 in an airplane hanger, hence the name, and initially brewed in two used dairy tanks! They quickly grew into the flying-high operation they are today – brewing sixteen different beers and distributing throughout NC! The Tap House opened in 2009 in the old Varina train depot. Aviator opened the SmokeHouse restaurant in March of 2011. Let’s see what Andrew has to say!
