    It occupies roughly 10,000 square feet at 400 N. Polk St. — formerly a clubhouse for Golf Village.

    “We’re hoping this place will become a staple to hang out and gather in the Pineville community,” said Mike Smoak.

    He and Andrew Viapiano are behind that venture. (Fun fact: the brewery’s name comes from their matching middle names.)
