We are Legal.

217 Brew Works received our ABC permits as a brewery on premise with a tap room, beer garden, and outside sales. We also have a permit to serve wine.

Thanks again to Tom Williams and John Kater for their dedication to the project.

We are still hoping for a 4 November opening.

Hope to see everyone on Saturday October 22nd at Beats and Eats.

Although the brewery won't be serving beer, you will get a sneak peak at the interior when you “check in" to the event. Thanks to Will Robl and the staff at Historic Downtown Wilson for asking us to host. There will be great music, food trucks, and Craft Beer from The Beer Store. See you Saturday from 11 am till 3 pm on the 217 Brew Works Beer Garden at 200 Douglas Street. Corner of South and Douglas Street in Historic Downtown Wilson.

Subscribe to the Facebook Event Page for updates and reminders.

Another crazy but good day at 217.

Electricians are finishing up the connections for the grain room, bathrooms, and bar area. Plumbers installed bathroom fixtures, main water heater, and started the work on the bar sinks and tap drains.

Received the glass washer and realized we miscalculated the size of the area behind the bar to install it. Framers will correct the problem today. Tom Williams continued his great painting service to the cause by working in the bar cooler door.

John Kater started testing the glycol system. I continued the finish work on the bar top. Mr Ruffin's team installed the fire department key box on the front of the building. Here is hoping they never have to use it.


A local life long resident of Wilson came to visit and showed us an article in the local paper of the buildings and business they housed from 1931.

He really appreciated seeing this historical block in Downtown Wilson restored.
