Our Story


BOONESHINE BREWING COMPANY is a craft brewery located in the beautiful town of Boone, NC. The brewery was founded by Carson Coatney and Tim Herdklotz in early 2015.  Tim and Carson met through mutual friends and many fishing trips to the NC Outer Banks. Both had years of experience home brewing prior to starting Booneshine Brewing Co.

We are passionate about brewing high quality beer and equally focused on connecting with people by tapping into what makes the community of Boone shine. One of our favorite things about being 100% independently owned and operated is the ability to partner with other amazing local businesses. Every beer we produce is proudly brewed and distributed by our team here in Boone. Be sure to keep an eye out for the official Brewer’s Association Independent seal the next time you are picking up your favorite Booneshine beer. This seal is more than just a cool sticker, it’s our commitment to all of our friends, family, and community here in the High Country.  Let’s #makebooneshine together.

Carson is a small business entrepreneur at heart and also owns Stick Boy Bread Company, Stick Boy Kitchen, and Melanie’s Food Fantasy in Boone. Tim has 20 years of experience in the electronic payments business working with large financial institutions. From day one, Tim and Carson have been dedicated to quality in everything they do.

Our brewery and tasting room is located in the Industrial Park off of Hwy 421 in East Boone. This thriving new community on the East side of town is made up of a collection of small business, start-ups, and outdoor enthusiasts. Come join us for lunch, dinner, or anytime in between.
