Getting Crafty in Sanford

Sanford two breweries with a few more in the works. They have craft beer bars and eateries scattered about this charming town. Because there are so many places to enjoy craft beer everyone should find a place that offers the perfect pour for them.

Sanford is quite the crafty beer town.

I love that this historic town has so many options that you can have fun walking around town doing your own pub crawl. Another fun way to explore Sanford's craft beer scene is on Limo Cycle. I've peddled around drinking beer with friends. It's a lot of fun and you earn your beer🍺

Sanford Brewing Company and Wops Hops Brewing Company are currently the two breweries in town. They are conveniently located across the street from each other.

Both breweries serve food and have a brewpub feel about them.

Inner Compass Brewing Company looks to be the next brewery to open. I'm all for the more the merrier. I think having a handful of breweries in a town is a good thing. It makes for a great craft beer destination. Many people like myself enjoy hopping around to nearby breweries.

Along with the breweries, there are many restaurants and bars in town offering a great selection of craft beer. 

Celery City Craft has over 100 beers with 51 beers on tap to choose from. They have "bistro" menu with sandwiches, soups and light bites. Enjoying beers in their beer garden is👍
