Good Hops Brewery is a bonafide artisan brewery located in Carolina Beach, North Carolina, brewing an ever changing selection of small batch beers and ales to enjoy at the source or take with you.
“There are a ton of breweries popping up around Wilmington, and this one can definitely hold its own against them all!”
“The great thing about Good Hops is they have fun activities like bingo night, pint night, even pet night.”
“GH always seems to have something special brewing, like their recent Czech style pilsner, an IPA and amber beers.”
Good Hops Brewing crafts innovative, palatable beer in the English Style Session Ale. Slightly sweet, less bitter with true balance of malt and hops, and lower carbonation levels, so the great flavors come through. We embrace the simplicity of beer history—water, yeast, hops and malt. If it makes better beer, we use it!
We innovate. We create. We’re artists! ~ Let’s inspire and implement solutions

John A. Garcia, Dreamer, Lookout Brewing Company
New on the beer scene and immediately captivated, we jumped into the best industry we have ever witnessed. Our family began brewing in 2012 with our son John Garcia, Lookout Brewing in Black Mountain, NC. With a rebellious spirit and lofty objective our Jersey family encouraged and funded the first brewery to double down in North Carolina –from the mountains of Asheville to the beaches of Wilmington—and remain a debt free family business. For more than a year all brews came from a Sabco ½ barrel system with up to 5 brews daily. It’s hard to sleep when you have a brewery. Your creative side is always on, you want to get up and go to work and each day offers a chance to do something new and exciting. Our mission is to offer high quality fresh brewed local beer to the coastal Wilmington area transforming all craft beer seekers into believers of how beer can dare to be different and remain pleasing in taste.
Good Hops Brewing brews daily on a 3 barrel system producing English style “session” Ales. With 8 taps at the brewery, we rotate through our two dozen recipes continually offering new beers and keep our flagship beers available year round. You can find Good Hops beer in over 3 dozen local restaurant and bars. We believe in the localization of the craft beer movement while leading the way for socially-conscious business supporting and giving back to our community.
