How it Started



New to the Craft Beer Scene and immediately captivated, we joined our son John Garcia of Lookout Brewing in Black Mountain, NC in 2012. In less than a year our rebellious Jersey family, Billy & Sharon Gorczynski, encouraged and funded the first North Carolina Brewery to double down.

Because of the collaborative spirit of the brewing industry, we returned to Carolina Beach and opened Good Hops Brewing founded on the values of honesty and integrity.

Spanning the state from the mountains of Asheville to the beaches of Wilmington we spread the love of craft beer with both new and skilled beer drinkers.  We endeavor to transform all explorers into believers of how beer can dare to be different and still remain pleasing in taste.
