We will be running curbside pick up and delivery in the Seagate neighborhood –  up to a 4 mile radius This includes food, beer and wine.   

We have also put together an event today to try to support local – including farmers and vendors as well as musicians.  

Wrightsville Beach Brewery wants to support local vendors and musicians as well. The brewery is hosting a drive through market on Saturday, March 21st. The market will be a way for locals to come to the brewery to enjoy a farmers market, live music, and pick up food and beer to take home all from the comfort and safety of their own vehicle. 

For a $1 donation to Nourish NC, you can slowly drive through the parking lot and shop for local goods while listening to solo musicians on the stage. All vendors and staff will be wearing fresh gloves for each transaction and the vendors will be set up appropriately spaced apart in the parking lot.  

Visit Wrightsville Beach Brewery on Saturday, March 21st from 9am to 1pm to support local!
