Craft brewery taps Shallotte for expansion

A craft beer brewery has announced plans to locate in Shallotte.

Red Hare Brewing Co., based in Marietta, Ga., intends to move into the Coastal Drug Store building at 4802 Main St., on the northwest corner of Mulberry Street.

Red Hare’s second brewery will be the company’s first expansion and is expected to open in the second half of 2017.

Red Hare founder and managing partner Roger Davis and Bobby Thomas, co-founder and head brewer, said they were heavily influenced by a road trip to visit breweries on the coast of Oregon last year.
