About the Brewery at Catawba Farms

Convenient to Catawba County residents and less than an hour from uptown Charlotte, yet a world away, the 34 acres of Catawba Farms provide the perfect setting for The Brewery at Catawba Farms.

On the property you'll find our tasting room, vineyard, picnic area, the Sunflower Market farm store, farm animals to interact with, fields to wander, as well as the historic Peacock Inn at Catawba Farms bed and breakfast.

Our tasting room experience features a guided, curated tasting of all of our beers. Besides a tasting, visitors may purchase beer by the glass, or growlers. Food prepared at the farm is available Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays.

The tasting room is in the Great Hall adjacent to the Peacock Inn. Enjoy a lodge-like atmosphere, complete with roaring fireplace in the winter months.

Goats, pigs, chickens, rabbits, a peacock named Henry and his family, a horse named Major Tom, a donkey and a zonkey, and five barn cats await visitors; the goats and pigs bring smiles to young and old alike, especially when a flat palm stretched toward them contains the feed we have available.

Guided tours of the property, including a walk through the brewing facility to learn about the beers we have brewed, are conducted on a regular basis. In addition, special tours and tastings are available by appointment. Please call us at 828-994-4766 to make arrangements. Also, if you are planning on bringing a large group, we ask that you please call ahead.

The Peacock Inn occupies the core of the old Sigmon farmhouse built in the late 1800's. Beautiful antiques abound but all rooms have been recently remodeled. It is a five bedroom facility with a large master bedroom and four upper rooms for your stay. Consider booking a room at the Inn to complete a memorable weekend.

The Brewery is easily accessible from US Highway 321 Business (Southwest Boulevard) in Newton, NC, across from Southside Park. Please enter slowly at 1670 Southwest Boulevard adjacent to the Peacock Inn, then look for signs directing you to plenty of free parking.
