– Our Mission –




The mission of Good Hops Brewing is to make and drink damn tasty beer, offer a comfortable neighborhood gathering place, and support local.

We fashion beer as unique as the island we call home by exploring our natural curiosity in craft beer styles.

Happiness comes from drinking local and the best way to experience our beer is right here in the Tap Room and Beer Garden. By providing a relaxed comfortable place to sit,sip and chat we encourage and facilitate meaningful relationships.

We show love for our community by saying “yes” as often as we can to local charities, causes and life events. Good Hops is all about family and LOCAL!


Stay Social

We love to stay active on social media to let everyone know what we're doing at the brewery as well as the various community events that take place in our space. Follow us to stay informed!



Good Hops Brewing is located on the corner of Dow Rd. and Harper Ave. in Carolina Beach, NC.  Come over the bridge (OTB as we locals like to call it), turn right on Dow Rd. at the CVS, and we're on the left just after the town water tower.  You can't miss us!

– Our Beers –

[ Featuring our FLAGSHIP BEERS ]


Boardwalk Brown Ale

An earthy and less bitter old style beer brewed with contributions of dark and sweet malt mingled with English hops.   ABV 5.5%


Donna Golden Ale

A balanced beer light bodied with subdued fruitiness and a noble hop character offering very light bitterness.  Named posthumously for a beautiful person; proceeds aide charitable donations.  ABV 4.5%


Good Hops Pale Ale

Made with “gently” roasted pale malt and a good balance of hops.  Light but full of flavor. A TOP SELLER.   ABV 6.0%

Flip Hop IPA

A true Southern IPA with a subtle malt flavor.  Dry hopped to make any hop head happy.  Hops dominate the palate and finish dry.  ABV 6.0%


Hoppertone Double IPA

7 hops without palate overload. To balance the strong hoppy taste, more malt is added.  Doubling up on hops and malts, this brew has strong, fruity, hoppy notes and deep malty undertones. Take a West Coast IPA and feed it steroids! 92 IBUs ABV 7.75%


Pleasure Island Pilsner

A very pleasing clean and simple pale lager with distinctive noble Saaz hops.   ABV 5.0%
