Help Us Put Oriental NC on This Map
Frank introduced Lili to his flavorful, locally-inspired homebrew recipes and his in-depth knowledge of craft brewing (and the science behind it). In turn, Lili shared her experiences traveling the world and connecting with people from different cultures. It was by seeing (and tasting) the beauty of other places that Lili came to truly appreciate the beauty of her own little village. These experiences are a big part of who we each are as individuals, and by combining them, a common sense of purpose began to take shape.
Together, we have visited quite a few craft breweries in North Carolina and along the east coast, and have seen first-hand how local craft breweries can revive communities, create good jobs, and bring people closer together.
We thought to ourselves, Wow, if every village had that, perhaps the world would feel a lot smaller, and a lot friendlier. We have so much love for Pamlico County and for our little village of Oriental- its past, its present, its people, its places, its pastimes, its fishing and farming, its flora and fauna, and most of all, its future.
A question arose. How can we re(connect) people with this place and share the beauty of our village?
The “Aha!” moment: We can brew up and serve really great beer that is inspired by (and gives new life to) our village!
The resounding answer: The New Village Brewery turned into a brainwave, which in turn gave us a new mission in life. With a little luck and resources, we have transformed that mission into a vision, by renting an ideal space in the heart of the village, investing in a state-of-the-art 1 barrel brewing system, and developing a business plan.
Now, we need YOU to help bring our dream to life!
It will take at least several months to get all the proper licensing and permits. In the meantime, we need to pay rent, procure raw materials, and obtain the rest of the equipment needed to get The New Village Brewery up and running. The funds raised here, on GoFundMe, will help us stay on target to open our doors and begin sharing our local, hand-crafted beer with our patrons within the next 6 months.
We are asking you, our amazing family and friends, to help us make The New Village Brewery a reality. With your support, we can put Oriental on the Great N.C. Beer Map!

We hope to see you one week from today (Sunday, Sep. 3rd) as we release our very 1st two batches of craft beer - brewed right here in Oriental, NC: the Ol' Store Ale & the High Water IPA. Event kicks off at 3pm. All are welcome. We invite you to bring side dishes to go with local BBQ and if you have a musical instrument, bring that too! We can't wait to celebrate this happy occasion with all of you who helped to make it happen.

Sound Rivers is a nonprofit organization that guards the health of the Neuse and Tar-Pamlico rivers. They unite with concerned citizens to protect and preserve the watersheds that cover more than a quarter of North Carolina. Part of the proceeds for this weekend's beer sales will go to support Sound Rivers. The Lower Neuse Riverkeeper and volunteers will be on hand to tell you of the actions and benefits of Sound Rivers. Clean water is important to all of us, especially here in Pamlico County!
We will open at noon on Thurs, Fri & Sat and remain open until around 10pm. Follow our Facebook page or contact us by email to find out which brews we'll have on tap & more, including a super cool Neuse River group kayaking excursion at 9am on Sunday morning, Aug. 13 organized by Paddling in Pamlico!
Our taproom is open for business! Our brewery will begin producing some time later this month if all goes well (and serving by late August or early September).
Until then, each week we will be featuring craft beer from a different NC brewery. Follow our Facebook page for details.
Our days of operation will be Thursday, Friday and Saturday from noon until 9pm or while supplies last.
Our house is your house!
