Greetings from Olde Hickory Brewery, nestled in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains in Hickory, North Carolina.
In 1994, Steven Lyerly and Jason Yates decided Western North Carolina was in need of fresh, quality beer and over a few pints, the idea of Olde Hickory Brewery was born.
Beginning in 1994 with a 7 barrel converted dairy system, we set and accomplished the goal of providing the unique traditional ales & lagers available through OHB. Quickly we outgrew that system and today we operate a 25-barrel Price Schonstrom brew house...
In 1997, OHB began the renovation of an 1880 Historic Landmark building in downtown Hickory, which now houses our brewing facilities.
Great beer is the result of meticulous attention to detail throughout the brewing process. Our beers begin their life as fresh water that flows from the granite slopes of the Blue Ridge and culminate in small batches less than 800 gallons each.
Our beers are and have always been, brewed using only select grains, robust hops and cultured yeast, with no additives or preservatives.
These basic ingredients are added with time, passion and the
undying thirst for knowledge to produce our variety of quality brews
that we're sure you'll enjoy!
