We’re about quality

pure and simple

What matters to us: authenticity, attention to detail, and craftsmanship. These values are ingrained into Horse Thief Hollow. The award-winning beers we brew, the Southern-inspired food we make from scratch, our knowledgeable staff. Every inch of the old Beverly carpet store that we converted into a brewpub represents these values.

Yep, he did that

Feathers in our cap

Horse Thief Hollow captures medals in prestigious beer competitions

We brew great beer and have the bling to prove it. We brought home a Gold Medal in the 2018 World Beer Cup and a Silver in the 2017 Great American Beer Festival for our French farmhouse ale Bière de Voleur, or Thief’s Beer. In 2016, we earned Bronze in the Great American Beer Festival for our Prunckle’s Dunkel, a dark German lager with nutty malted sweetness. We also snagged first place in the 2016 Festival of Barrel Aged Beers for a Bavarian wheat beer called Hilltop Weizenbock. The 2014 World Beer Cup awarded us a Silver Medal for our Cheval Deux, a fall seasonal French brown ale infused with sweet potato. And we earned a Bronze for our signature 18th Rebellion Kolsch Ale, a Zwickelbier, at the 2014 GABF.
