Blowing Rock Draft House


The Blowing Rock Draft House is a brewpub just 1.5 miles from Interstate 40 at the historic Hollar Mill in Hickory, NC. The Draft House offers 20 house-made beers on tap, delicious appetizers, pub food, and wood-fired pizzas. Like their Ale House in Blowing Rock, their chefs construct menus incorporating their craft brews into locally sourced ingredients to create a dining experience unlike any other. They provide customers with a taste of the High Country, with a twist of the Foothills. They are open six days a week and serve lunch and dinner. The expansive taproom and outdoor beer garden provide ample space for live music, cornhole, and hanging out with friends and family.
