Waterman's Brewing Begins Welcoming Customers

The area’s newest craft beer destination held a soft opening Tuesday and is now open at 1610 Pavilion Place, the former Fibber McGee’s, near Wrightsville Beach.

Waterman’s Brewing Company started with three or four of their beers on tap and will likely increase that lineup this week. Beer fans will be able to try a pale ale, a hoppy wheat brew, an IPA and a blonde ale, said Bob High, one of the partners – all with names that reflect the business’s coastal vibe.

“But they’ll have to come here to see what they are,” he said. Waterman’s is designed with the attitude of those people who live, recreate and work on or near the beach. “All of those activities that people love to do, surfing, fishing, that’s really what we’re about.”

The brewery has been completely renovated during the past year to reflect that outlook, from the bike rack to the outdoor patio. In addition to the house-made beer, people can find ciders, a wine list and food.  “We’re a brewery first and foremost,” High said. But the menu will feature seafood selections like a Low Country boil and traditional pub favorites.

High and his partners, Craig Gee and Don Webber, have a longtime interest in brewing and beer. High completed a program in brewery science in Los Angeles and has been working in the beer industry for 25 years.

Waterman’s will be open 4 p.m. until midnight this week, he said. After July 15, the hours expand to 11:30 a.m.-midnight seven days a week.
