Kyle Wilkerson got his first look at kitchen operations for Burlington Beer Works on June 25. At the time he was interviewing for the position of executive chef, which would become open in July. Wilkerson, one of the top farm-to-table chefs in North Carolina, would be an interesting and perhaps an exceptional hire for the microbrewery and restaurant, which had opened in March. Tracy Schmidt, general manager of Burlington Beer Works and Wilkerson thought it would be a good idea for him to visit the restaurant and kitchen, look around and meet the staff.
