...and more beer

The South Fork Brew Project has joined the ranks of locally brewed beer purveyors. Charles Edling, owner of District 8 Beer Co. in Cramerton, has opened South Fork Brew Project next door to District 8 in Southfork Village.
Edling says he hadn't  always planned to open a brewery, but when the boutique next door moved, he acted quickly to score the space.  Edling plans several beers and hard seltzers, and will continue to offer local bottled and canned beers in the market inside the bar.
