(336) 525-6383 • 103 E. Front St. Burlington, North Carolina

A little more than a year ago I sat across a table from Tracy Schmidt for the first time. It was also my first time inside Burlington Beer Works Brewery and Restaurant, which was preparing to open after years of planning, fundraising and preperation. Schmidt had just returned from Raleigh with the state license to sell alcohol. Next up would be an event as part of the city’s St. Patrick’s Day festival followed by the official opening on March 30, 2019.
