All Small Batch, ALL Rotating All The Time.

Life is a journey with many turning points and milestones. At one of these points, it was finally time for Rachael Hudson to showcase everything she has learned for the past 6 years as a professional brewer.

Trained under award winning breweries such as: Hardywood Park, Left Hand, and NoDa Brewing Company, Rachael decided it was time to showcase everything she has learned on a nano scale.

So together with her husband Jeff, a professional pilot and avid homebrewer, they had a conversation and fueled the beginning of Pilot Brewing.

A slight play on words, Pilot Brewing references aviation, but more importantly focuses on small batch experimental beer. Combined with a 3-barrel Pilot system, and half-barrel “Co-Pilot” system, Pilot Brewing, with minimal focus on core brands, endeavors to expand the boundaries of craft beer by brewing original recipes that represent traditional and experimental styles.

We love Plaza Midwood neighborhood and we’re thankful and proud to be a part of its character as well as maximizing community involvement by partnering with local charities.

Pilot Brewing opens its doors to all, takes pride in being woman-owned, and seeks to lift others up and take up for others. We hope your destination is Pilot Brewing.
