Aviator Brewing Company opened in an airplane hangar at Triple W Airport in Fuquay Varina, NC in November of 2008. They initially brewed in two used dairy tanks that each held 300 gallons of beer.
In April 2010 they moved to a larger building only a few miles aways, expanding even further.
They currently have over 1,000 barrels of fermentation space and a 30 barrel brewhouse. In 2014 Aviator expanded from 10,500 to 22,500 square feet of space, and they sold their bottling line and began solely canning beers.
Aviator Tap House, which opened in September 2009 in the old Varina train depot dating back to 1903. Aviator SmokeHouse opened in March 2011 across the street from the Tap House featuring smoked wings, smoked pulled pork, and St. Louis style smoked ribs, all made with housemade dry-rubs and sauces. Try the MocoLoco sauce made with the Ghost Chile Peppers!
Aviator Brewing Company says of Devils Tramping Ground, “This Tripel ale will grow hair in places you don’t want.” Their Tripel is golden in color with a fruity spicy flavor, finishing slightly sweet. The perfect amount of hops balance the sweetness. The addition of candy sugar keeps this beer light tasting. According to the can, “The Devil’s Tramping Ground is a North Carolina folklore legend. Legend says that this is the very place the devil himself can rise from the depths of fiery hell, and come to earth.”
