In this new NCBeerBuzz episode, we visit Belmont in Gaston County to speak with Pat Brennan one of the founders of the new Rivermen Brewing Company. Their story started out on the creeks and rivers of the southeast where founding partners at Rivermen Brewing Company met on various paddling trips and adventures, lots of beer was enjoyed and friendships formed. They shared a love of paddling, outdoor adventures and beer. Over the course of many long drives and countless hours around campfires they talked about starting a brewery, having spent many years home brewing. Rivermen is excited to be a part of the Belmont community and to share their craft beers with you!
