Great Notion Brewing & Barrel House
Sunday-Thursday, 11 am-10 pm, Friday-Saturday, 11 am-11 pm, 230 NW Lost Springs Terrace in the Timberland Center
Cedar Mill is the latest location for the popular beer maker, best known for its hazy, fruit-forward IPAs and “culinary-inspired” sours and stouts, Great Notion’s Taproom features 20 taps, house-smoked BBQ food, and beer to-go. Be sure to check out the nearly-collectible labels on the cans, featuring a cast of fantastic forest creatures.
The BBQ menu includes oak-smoked pulled pork, smoked shredded chicken thighs, Juice Jr. Hot Links, smoked Ota tofu, wagon wheel mac and cheese, Double Stack baked beans, cauliflower coleslaw, pimento cheese pasta salad, three-bean salad and more. GNB offers homemade sauces, including Juice Jr. Hot Sauce, Radio Silence Piedmont Sauce, Carolina Gold Mustard Sauce, and Eastern Carolina Vinegar Sauce.
The location, formerly Ava’s Roasteria, is 2000 square feet of indoor space, with roll up garage doors leading to a beautiful elevated stone beer garden. Remodeling construction was provided by Centrex Construction who also built GNB’s NW 28th location. Plans were provided by Thesis Studio. A multi-shade green forest mural was hand painted by Brian Devine, and large scale GNB-character artwork illustrated by Chad Eaton. Dogs are allowed on the patio.
