Wilson's Coming Soon to Dock 1053

Wilson's Coming Soon to Dock 1053

New Restaurant & Bar

If you've sipped a cold beer at Lynnwood Brewing recently, you've probably seen the construction happening at the corner of the Dock 1053's parking lot & East Whitaker Mill Rd. We'd like to be the first to introduce you to Wilson's -- Lynnwood Brewing's new restaurant & bar. We caught up with Ted, the owner of Lynnwood Brewing, to get the deets behind Dock 1053's newest addition.

An extension of Lynnwood Brewing, Wilson's is lovingly named after Ted's dog. The menu is still being developed and perfected, but its main focus will be delicious flatbread pizzas and crafted sandwiches, with additional rotating items to keep patrons coming back for more. Wilson's plans on serving several house-made sodas & mixers in their craft cocktails with a preference for local and NC products including Dock 1053 neighbors, Pinetop Distillery. While we all loved the food trucks that frequent Lynnwood Brewing, this will serve as a permanent solution with multiple food & drink options. 

"Wilson’s was created to fill a void in this growing market and to keep our Taproom customers happy," says Ted. "It allows us to integrate the beer garden and outdoor patio into one cohesive space and keep up with the growing demand for our beers."

Wilson's hopes to be open sometime in August, definitely by Labor Day. Stay tuned for more info and updates. Welcome to the neighborhood, Wilson's!

“Loading Dock was certainly unique. Being that it’s an old loading dock, it’s a pretty cool space. It’s got that industrial feel. And also, the other things attached to The Loading Dock, whether it’s the brewery, or the furniture and clothing store, the glass studio, and now there’s a cocktail bar and things like that. It’s just a really cool area. There’s a lot of people coming here for different reasons and I definitely want to be a part of that, and around that.”

"I love people and other dogs. I  love to chase squirrels and cats. I'm faster than a cheetah but slower than most squirrels. I love sunbathing in the backyard. If you rub my belly I will love you for life."

Meet Our Neighbors: Glas

Meet Our Neighbors: Glas

Thirty-four years ago Nate Shaeffer started blowing glass.  When he graduated from college in 1986, he opened up a Neon Shop. What started small, quickly escalated into a huge production. "We did tens of thousands of beer signs and all of the coca-cola signs for a significant part of Europe for years. By 1997 I had twenty four glass blowers." A collapse in the market due to offshore competition forced Nate to take a step back. "It was a good time for me to get out and be with my kids as a stay-at-home dad."  But Nate wasn't done yet. He couldn't stop making things.  What started back as as a small studio in his house, is now an inviting shop right in the heart of Dock 1053 called Glas.  "I may have worn this statement out in the last two years, but I still have my feet on the brakes because we're just reacting to clients coming in."
