This is a local micro brewery. It has a nice fun atmosphere. Some nights they have games other nights live music. Good beer and I believe they might serve wine. They also allow you to order and bring food from restaurants nearby in so you can have dinner there also. We like to order from Time Square pizza, take it there, and have beer and pizza.

Parks & Nature
This is one of my favorite hiking spots. It is pretty and a moderate or nice and gentle hike. The Birkhead mountains are thought to be the oldest mountain range in North America. So it is known for day hikes and trail running. https://www.visitnc.com/listing/uwharrie-national-forest-birkhead-wilderness-area-tot-hill-farm http://www.hikingupward.com/unf/birkheadmountainswilderness/ Access 5,160 acres of the ancient Uwharrie National Forest in the Birkhead Mountains Wilderness Area. The Piedmont’s only federally-designated wilderness area, the Birkhead Mountains feature designated hiking trails where evidence of early Indians and settlers can often be found.

Because of the rich clay soil and the creative energy, Seagrove is home to a large number of potters, pottery stores, and pottery festivals. Each potter has a unique process, design, and look to their pottery. It is fun to see them all. The North Carolina Pottery Center is a good place to start. It displays works from a variety of potters in one place. Then you can choose who you would like to visit. Some places have times where you can watch the pottery being made or fired in the kiln. My favorite is Ben Owens pottery. Go here to see a map of pottery places. http://www.heartofnorthcarolina.com/travel-tools/images/5_Mile_Radius_Map.pdf
