Our History

Aviator Brewing Company started in Nov 2008 in an airplane hangar. We initially brewed into two used dairy tanks.  Each tank held 300gallons of beer.  Much to our surprise we quickly outgrew these tanks!

We added two used 30bbl fermentors to the brewery and the capacity increased.  In Jan 2009 we had started distribution into the Triangle area.  The demand for the beer grew faster than we could brew.

In April 2010 we moved from the airplane hangar at Triple W airport to a larger building about 4 miles away.  We have expanded the brewery yet again and have added more fermentation tanks and a large cooler.

In Sept 2011 we added (3) 60bbl fermentation tanks to our current 130bbl of fermentation.

In Aug 2011 we added a 8 head Cimec 22oz bottling system to put some of our beer on the store shelves.

A 30bbl brewhouse was installed Jun 2012.  With the new 4 vessel 30bbl brewhouse we can really start pumping the beer out.

In June 2012 we added (3) 100bbl fermenters to our lineup. In Sept 2012 we added (7) 100bbl fermenters and (2) 100bbl brite tanks.

In Nov 2012 we added a Canning machine and are canning HotRod Red, HogWild IPA, and Devils Tramping Ground Tripel.

We are currently distributing to all of NC, SC, Lexington, KY, Central Florida.

We are in the process of adding 12,000 sq.ft. to the brewery for more space!
