The Loping Crow Distillery

Jul 18, 2023

If you enjoy a good cocktail, you can’t go wrong here.  Their in house spirits are great quality and the drinks they make with them are superior! Grab a fire pit or a picnic table and enjoy a country view! 

24030 Endy Rd. Albemarle, NC 28001

The Digs:

Currently, although they are new and this could change quickly, they have a small building with a pretty cool bar and nice, clean, single stall bathrooms Not a ton of room inside, but they do have a very large outdoor area with tables and they recently did a small barn area where they host bands. They also have chairs set up around fire pits.

The Grub:

You will likely find a food truck here on Saturdays. It could be their own or one they have brought in, but the food always seems to be great either way. Their liquors are quite tasty. I was at first surprised just how good they are, so smooth and lovely in a cocktail.

I, at this point, have tried just about every cocktail.  What I love about the drinks here is none of them are super sweet, to the point you feel like you have to go brush your teeth, but they’re sweet enough to give them a great taste.

My only complaint is they don’t always give you a cherry in the old fashioned. I don’t know if I get there and they’re out or if sometimes they just forget, so I started asking to make sure I get one because they’re soooo good!

The Service:

Super friendly folks, mostly run by family. They always seem to be really happy…how could you not be with a lovely country view and some great spirits?

The Scratch (Per Person):

16-30 for a couple of drinks with tips.

The Duds:

Dress for the weather as you’ll likely be outside if it is busy. Wear comfy shoes, ladies, as it is currently mostly covered in gravel.

Take Note:

They do sell by the bottle and have shirts and mixes available for purchase as well. Also, this place is directly across the street from Dennis Vineyards!
