The Olde Hickory brewery is not open to the public, but there are a few nearby options to enjoy the beer. In downtown Hickory are dueling Olde Hickory taprooms which are located just across the railroad tracks from each other. The beers are also featured at Amos Howard's restaurant. The Old Hickory brewery is a two-story brick building on 3rd Street. Wooden doors with windows allow you to see inside. On the left is a farm of midsize stainless steel fermenters, and on the right are racks of kegs and barrel aging beers. Otherwise there is not much to see here. Their beers are good and span a good number of style. I recommend seeking them out if you are in the area.

I'm from the Hickory area originally and go back to visit family. I have enjoyed visiting the Olde Hickory Tap Room and have brought back their brews. All their beers are well done, but I am partial to their stouts. Hickory Stick Stout on draught is flavorful and a good choice.

I had a bunch of friends for a western North Carolina microbrew tasting this year. The Olde Hickory Brewery Bardstown Barley Stout was by far the hit of the night. Imperial Stout was also well received. Both are limited in quantity and I am glad to have enjoyed them.

The Tap Room is a great place to visit and has excellent food served by happy people. It is a regular stop on our visits.

This ale house is a few miles from the brewery.....
Wonderful bar/pub atmosphere when walking in. Most walls in the "restaurant" part of the pub are covered with tap handles from all over. The selection of beers is wonderful. Our party sampled the Pale Ale (not bad at all), the stout (my stout drinking friend loved it), the Red Ale, the Oktoberfest (my favorite), the Brown Mountain Light (VERY LIGHT, almost like water....not much taste), and the Ruby Lager (smooth, easy drinking with great flavor). All in the party were satisfied with the beers. We even asked for a keg (none at the ale house, we had to go to the brewery for it and they wanted a steep $100 deposit). The food was simple, and therefore a good compliment to the great beers. The ONLY issue in this place was our waiter. He was polite and as far as the food went, no problems. He didn't know much about the beers, and for a selection like this, he should. He even brought a few of us the wrong beers on more than one occasion. This is a minor issue. If driving on I-40 through Hickory, NC, I STRONGLY recommend a visit!!!!!!
