“If you like beer, you'll love this place!”
Reviewed January 23, 2014

I was very surprised to find a brewery like this in the city of Kinston. They make all their own beer on site, and usually have four or five regular beers plus a number of specialty or seasonal beers as well. If you want Bud Light or Miller, go to the local sports bar. If you like good tasting, craft brewed beer, this is your place to go. They don't serve food at the Tap Room, so if you're hungry, dine at one of the three or four places within a block of the Tap Room, then finish it off by visiting Mother Earth and having a nice Wit, IPA, Porter, or Stout!

“Best Brewery in Eastern NC”
Reviewed January 21, 2014

If you read nothing else: YOU SHOULD GO. Mother Earth is awesome.

My husband and I moved to Greenville from the Triangle for his graduate school program. Let's just say that in general it has been a bit harder to find fun places for young people to hang out. But, lo and behold, Mother Earth is a diamond in the rough! As comparison, we've been to several breweries in the Triangle, Triad, and mountains...and Mother Earth is one of our all time favorites! And in Kinston! The hometown initiative has been quite successful -- it really has brought life to Kinston and to Eastern NC. It's got a great atmosphere-- fun but still laid back. The brewery itself is in a eco-conscious renovated historic building and looks fantastic. The free brewery tour is really interesting and informative. In the spring or summer, the outdoor patio with couches and corn hole is great. The staff is very friendly and will gladly offer beer suggestions. Their beer menu is diverse and delicious, you can't really go wrong. They just opened their Trade Shop...let's just say we are such fans we both bought t-shirts ;) We always take visitors and recommend it to friends. You MUST stop in if you are in the Eastern NC area, and I would even recommend it as a day trip drive for those coming from the Triangle or beyond. We've been several times and will keep going back. Definitely one of our Eastern NC favorites!

“Interesting experience and Good Craft Beer”
Reviewed January 1, 2014

Good decor, sophisticated outside seating area, excellent craft beer...all in the heart of Kinston, NC. A respite in a city working to be more than it is now. Go there and enjoy local, artisinal beer. Good restaurants around there as well.

“Saturday Afternoon Treat”
Reviewed November 25, 2013

I visited Mother Earth Saturday afternoon for their seasonal release of Silent Night. The beer was great, yet to add to the release party, they hosted the Catch (Wilmington, NC) food truck and many patrons were able to enjoy the 2013 Silent Night along with scrumptious food truck selections.

“Saturday Sipping Suds”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

Stopped by on a whim coming back through New Bern. Fun and funky tap room was mostly empty on an early Saturday afternoon. Beer tender was very friendly and knowledgeable. Will definable make a return trip on conjunction with dinner reservations at one of the downtown spots in the evening.
