Our story started out on the creeks and rivers of the southeast. The four original partners of Rivermen Brewing Company met on various paddling trips and adventures, lots of beer was enjoyed and friendships formed. We all share a love of paddling, outdoor adventures and beer. Over the course of many long drives and countless hours around campfires Pat started talking about opening a brewery. Having spent many years home brewing, the formation of Rivermen Brewing Company is a dream come true.


We chose a location in Belmont, North Carolina that met our criteria. We wanted to have water access for the occasional afternoon roll session or paddle, we want to make a significant local impact and we needed good water. Our new location is located in Historic Downtown  Belmont within an old mill, the structure is beautiful and it has an undeniable character. The overall site lends itself to outdoor festivals and we are now a pedestrian destination for all of downtown Belmont.


Pat and the entire team are excited to be a part of the Belmont community and share our craft beer, food and culture with you!

As we get up and running we will be sharing photo's and details and where to get our beer.


Drink local and enjoy beers that are several hundred miles fresher.
