about us


We are a 1-barrel nano-brewery and taproom located in a historic house built in 1910 in beautiful Oriental, NC. We are proud to serve only NC craft beer on our guest taps, with new NC breweries featured each week, as well as our own brews. We hope you'll stop by and pay us a visit! Check out our beer garden. Relax on the front porch. Our house is your house.

We are Frank & Lili. We married in 2015. During our courtship, we discovered we shared passions for music, art, craft beer, and a great love for Oriental, N.C., the small fishing village where we both were raised.

Frank introduced Lili to his flavorful, locally-inspired homebrew recipes and his in-depth knowledge of craft brewing and the science behind it.  In turn, Lili shared her experiences traveling the world and connecting with people from different cultures.  It was by seeing and tasting the beauty of other places that Lili came to truly appreciate the beauty of her own little village. These experiences are a big part of who we each are as individuals, and by combining them,  The New Village Brewery came to life. Each day, our business is inspired by and gives new life to our village!
