Thank you Carolina Beach for the opportunity for Good Hops Brewing LLC to become a part of your vibrant coastal community. We are so excited to call Carolina Beach home. Good Hops Brewing is an operating brewery making beer daily starting in April. We make and store all of our beer on site, 811 Harper Avenue at the corner of Dow and Harper. We have a tasting area with seating both inside and outside. The public is invited to stop in for a free tasting, take a tour, buy a pint, shop, bring lunch/dinner, or simply hang out.

Our goal is to be Pleasure Island’s Craft Brewery. It is important to us to become involved in the community and for the community to become involved with us. We want to make the beer that you want. Your input is vital to our existence. We want to transform our space into a community space for the residents of Pleasure Island.

We are a family run business and would love to have your entire family visit us. We will have board games and outdoor activities to help you keep your children entertained. If your dog is friendly..so are we!!! We are dog friendly.

We are food friendly. Please bring your meal with you and we will pair it with one of our beers. There are many fine eating establishments on the island. Menus will be on-site to call in orders. During summer hours we will be offering meal events. Stay tuned!

Tours are free. Tastings are free. We sell pints, half pints and flights in our tasting room. We offer quart, gallon and even kegs of your favorite beer to go home with you. We provide beer to local bars and restaurants. We open at 1:00 every day, close at 8:00 on Monday-Thursday; 9:00 on Friday and Saturday and 7:00 pm on Sundays. (Holidays may offer different hours).  You may have noticed the transformation on the corner of Dow and Harper. Stop in anytime and tell us who you are and how we can best serve you. We are excited to meet the residents and visitors of Pleasure Island.
