Flat-top Brewing Company is Banner Elk’s Craft Brewery. We offer many Refreshingly Elevated Beers to please any palate. We are circulating our kegs to pubs and restaurants when you look at the Boone/Banner Elk/Blowing Rock location initially and will begin canning our alcohol for circulation and sale locally. We're very happy to announce that individuals have actually hired 2 brand-new brewers, Drew Gibson and Paul Thompson. Both recently finished from ASU’s Fermentation Science system and are also eager to create the finest beer around. I will be supplying 3-4 year-round flagship brews in addition to numerous seasonal offerings rotating over summer and winter to test not just in our tasting space in Downtown Banner Elk, and in your favorite watering hole into the tall nation.
