CONCORD, N.C. — Gibson Mill in Concord, North Carolina recently announced its development of the Gibson Mill Market, a food hall-style dining and shopping experience that will open on the campus early 2020. The first tenant signed to Phase 1 of the project is High Branch Brewing Co.

High Branch, already a tenant of the Gibson Mill campus, will move its 2,450 square foot home base from the East side of the site to the first floor of the future Market. The independently owned craft brewery, which originally opened at the Mill in 2015, offers small batch beers and family ambience. High Branch’s new footprint will expand to 5,400 square feet, which will allow for growth across many fronts.

“Gibson Mill has been such a great home for our brewery for the past 4 years. We’re so excited to be a part of the Gibson Mill Market, something we have wanted to see happen here at the Gibson Mill campus since we signed our original lease. Customers can expect to see the same quality and attention-to-detail in our beer, with added indoor and outdoor space for people to sit and enjoy as well as additional private event space,” said TJ Creighton, High Branch owner. “This move gives us the opportunity to increase our production space, put in a larger brewing system, and add more tanks. It will allow us to continue to make the beers we are known for, but also add lagers and other light and crisp offerings to create a more diverse portfolio.”

“It’s very exciting to be the home base for High Branch and to watch them continue to grow. They have a great product and welcome all guests into their family. We look forward to seeing what they are able to do with more space,” said Joe Liles, SouthPaw Investors Partner.
