Smokehouse and Suds: Aviator Brewing Company gives folks a taste of Fuquay


The Aviator Brewing Company of Fuquay Varina offers up two different way to sample the unique tastes of the town, right in the heart of the historic downtown district.

With its Aviator Tap House showcasing its fine assortment of microbrews made right up the road at the Aviator brewery, and the Aviator Smokehouse offering the finest in smoked meats and all things BBQ,  these two downtown establishments are sure to quench the thirst and feed the appetite for those looking to make their hometown taste buds scream.

Famous for their smoked wings in an array of flavors, their Smokehouse Ribs, or either the sandwich or platter option of the Aviator Pulled Pork or the North State Chopped BBQ, that all go perfectly with the “insanely good” Mac and Cheese or any of the great side offerings, the Smokehouse is sure to hit the spot and give Fuquay visitors a “taste of the town.”

Heading directly across the street from the Smokehouse, the Tap House offers ten delicious brews made right in town, giving visiting parties a variety of options whether they are “washing down” the BBQ from across the road, listening to one of the establishments live music acts, or simply enjoying the quaint setting of downtown Fuquay. Whether opting for Aviator’s Hogwild India Pale, Madbeach American Wheat, BlackMamba Oatmeal Stout, one of the seasonal flavors offered, or even an Aviator Root beer, there is certainly never a lack of delightful flavor just a pull of the tap away.

The Aviator Tap House is located at 600 E. Broad Street and the Smokehouse is directly across the street at 525 E. Broad Street in downtown Fuquay-Varina, which puts families in the South Lakes subdivision just a few steps from the delicious tastes that you will call home in Fuquay.
