Established in 2022, The Bragging Rooster is in the heart of downtown Warrenton, NC! The ownership team immediately recognized the beauty of this small town and sought to create something unique as a part of the Main Street revitalization efforts. The Bragging Rooster is a brewery, cidery, and meadery that stayed true to the building's historic roots, while adding some modern flair.
Once inside this gorgeous space, you will notice the original restored tin ceiling and hardwood floors, along with a long, beautiful bar made from reclaimed barn wood. The large taproom has plenty of space for customers to relax and gather with friends in several living room-like sections and distinctive handmade wooden tables.
Bragging Rooster Beer and Mead serves as a community space where patrons can come together in a
welcoming, comfortable, and entertaining atmosphere while creating great tasting, quality craft
beverages brewed from local ingredients!
While there has been a boom in the craft beer industry in North Carolina, the Bragging Rooster is stands out by creating beer, hard cider, and mead all under one roof - a concept which does not currently exist
in the state!
The Bragging Rooster features tons of board games, PlayStation games, dart boards, cornhole, pool tables, and eight TVs, making this space perfect for the whole family – including your furry friends! 🐶
