Lazy Hiker Brewing Company is a craft brewery way up in the mountains of Western North Carolina. We started as a dream to bring something new and beneficial to the town of Franklin, NC which we love. After the idea was set to paper and a plan was drawn up, we went to the community to help make it a reality. We moved in to the former Town Hall and Fire Department, completely renovating them into our brewhouse and taproom. We're brewing great beer in downtown Franklin, NC so that you can relax and enjoy it wherever you are. If you're in town, stop in and try some of our beer in the taproom served by of our fantastic staff. Take a glance out back and watch our brewers work their magic on our 15 barrel brewhouse. We're only a short hike off the trail.
