New Anthem Beer Project- Wilmington, NC

My new hometown, Wilmington, NC, has experienced a boom in the craft beer industry and the number of small breweries is into the double digits with more to come. Being retired now, I have plenty of time to explore the new offerings and one of the first was New Anthem Brewing Project on Dock Street. 

The brewery has a nice layout inside using the existing brick and wood and giving it a warm and friendly feel with plenty of space. 

I had an Imperial Stout at about 9% that was really quite smooth and would probably sneak right up on you. I followed with an IPA which had a nice crisp taste with just a hint of fruitiness. 

I have a feeling I'll be back a few more times to sample the wares.
