We recently had chance to visit Whistle Hop Brewing Co. at 1288 Charlotte Hwy. in Fairview, as we continued our NCBeerBuzz tour of some new breweries in the western parts of North Carolina. We sat down with Gina Miceli, who along with her husband Thomas have taken an old caboose (that was already in the family believe it or not) and renovated it as the central taproom area of a great new craft beer location! Their beers “are hand-crafted on site in small batches utilizing only the highest quality ingredients” and while they appreciate tradition, they also “love to experiment with non-traditional ingredients and techniques”. Look for the red caboose on the side of the highway next time you travel through Fairview and stop in for a cold one and a visit with Gina or Tom!
