Fiddlin' Fish Brewing Company

772 North Trade Street
Winston Salem, NC 27101

Fiddlin’ Fish is the brew-child of Stuart Barnhart of Winston-Salem and his cousin David Ashe of Richmond. Together, they share a passion for cold beer and a love of the outdoors.

In 2016, Stuart and David left jobs in finance and hospitality with a concept for creating great tasting beer in a taproom where people would want to become regulars. After hundreds of hours of brewing, tasting, strategizing, and accounting in Stuart’s basement what was once a late night “what-if” has finally taken shape.

The name Fiddlin’ Fish comes from the cousins’ childhood summers in the Blue Ridge Mountains, hiking, fishing and listening to great music. When they decided to open a brewery, they wanted it to be a reflection of what they love.

The brewery, on Trade Street, has a 15-barrel brewhouse producing traditional styles as well as an ever-changing cast of seasonals and one-offs. The Fish also has six 60” TVs showing all your favorite sports and regular live music, games, and events. Come visit for a tour, or just relax outside on the covered patio.

Look for Stuart who will be brewing behind the steel frame windows reclaimed from the old Nissen Wagon Works factory, or David managing the taproom painted by local artist Hieronymus.

Fiddlin’ Fish Brewing Company is about community, beer, and paddling your own path down the river.
