Constructed in 1903, the Huske Hardware House was originally a store for hardware, as the name would suggest. In 1996, it underwent a renovation and was transformed into a brewery and restaurant, as it is today. Situated in the downtown area of Fayetteville, the Huske Hardware House provides guests with great service within a one-of-a-kind setting.



Guests can relax outside and experience the sounds and sights of Fayetteville, or enjoy a pint or meal inside the brewery and take in the rustic decor of the dining area. Live music on Friday and Saturday nights helps to transform the Huske Hardware House into a great place for entertainment in the city. The brewery posts a schedule for live entertainment on its website.

The Huske Hardware House is the first craft brewery in the city of Fayetteville. Since it opened in 1996, the brewery has been creating award-winning craft beer on-site. There is always several beers on tap with unique flavors, as well as four seasonal beers on rotation throughout the year. The beer at Huske is brewed to compliment the taste of the restaurant’s heart meals. The servers at the restaurant are always happy to suggest beer pairings for guests, or visitors can choose to try all six of the brewery’s craft beers as part of a beer flight.

The Huske Hardware House was first owned by Benjamin Huske, acting as an all-inclusive store for hardware needs. For sixty-seven years, the store was a staple of downtown Fayetteville. Due to its success, the store expanded to three additional storefronts and to the second floor. Dr. William Baggett bought and renovated the building’s east side in 1996, and created the Huske Hardware House brewery and restaurant. Residents of eastern North Carolina have now grown to love the place.

The Huske Hardware House is now owned and operated by a veteran, offering locals and visitors alike some of the area’s best drink, food, and entertainment. The restaurant serves British-inspired pub food within a rustic setting. Guests can also choose to enjoy their meal outdoors, allowing them to take in the sounds and sights of the city.

Guests can call the restaurant for reservations, or order food to go as well. The award-winning beers of the Huske Hardware House are brewed in the on-site brewery using a fifteen-barrel system, all overseen by Brewmaster Matt. The refreshing English ales on tap at the brewery were created to accentuate the flavors of the restaurant’s pub fare.

What truly sets the Huske Hardware House apart from many other craft breweries is its stainless steel, American-made, fifteen-barrel brewing system. This brewing system is showcased proudly at the center of the restaurant. With the system’s three fermenters that are twelve feet tall, in addition to the hardworking brew house, the brewery is able to make almost five hundred gallons of full-flavored, rich craft beer in just one turn, going from grain to a delicious glass of beer in just a single week. Only ales are brewed at Huske Hardware House, of which are primarily English ales.
