Description:

 In 1978 the Bolick family sold Granite Bottling Works, which by then had grown into a major enterprise bottling and distributing Double Cola, My Cola, Cheerwine, Sun-Drop, and eleven other drink varieties across a twelve-county area of northwestern North Carolina, to Coca-Cola Bottling Company of Asheville. Three minutes later, this same November day, Coca-Cola Bottling sold the facility to Pepsi-Cola Bottling Company of Hickory, N.C., Inc.

In December 2012, Mastroeli-MacNeil Equity Investments, LLC, a husband and wife pair of Caldwell County-based investors, financed the purchase of the original Granite Bottling Works property from Pepsi-Cola Bottling Company. The principals financed a painstaking build-out, and are proud of the adaptive reuse of this warehouse/manufacturing space into a supper club, eatery, and old-style "watering hole." The 32,000 square foot configuration of three old warehouses situated on 2.08 acres contiguous to Downtown Granite Falls, with a panoramic view of the Blue Ridge Mountains at its back, has been repurposed as a restaurant and put back into commission as a beverage production facility. The brick two-story 1903 Bolick's Bottling Plant still stands, and can be viewed exposed in our lobby's interior, and the front restrooms and corporate offices. When you enter GFB's lobby, you are literally stepping inside a century-old bottling plant.

The Owners of Granite Falls Brewing Company invite you to visit our site, indulge in an experience that is In A Glass By Itself, partake of laughter, fellowship and living history, lo and behold what we unearthed between the walls and specimens of the original Granite Bottling Works bottles, and become a part of a Great American Revival Story. One that is still being written today.
