A Music Venue with drinks  - not a bar with music

Green Heron Ale House

Ale House – Cider House – Wine Bar

Unbeatable atmosphere, music and Stokes County's first Craft Ale House. Also featuring select wines and hard cider.

The Green Heron Alehouse specializes
in beer served from a tap. 

For our customers who prefer bottles
we keep a limited selection of
6 domestic American classics
based on the preferences of
our regular customers. 


Select red and white wines, both local and international, by the glass and by the bottle.

We stock several wines from our closest winery, Younts Wine Farm, in Walnut Cove, NC, for our guests who appreciate going local. We also serve excellent vintages from the world's great wine-making regions.

We enjoy learning about wine as much as we do craft beers and hope you'll find something new and special in our selection.

Blues ... Southern Style

THE KING BEES have been stingin' & swingin' the blues since 1987.. Paris, Rome, Amsterdam, Lincoln Center New York City (several times), we've played 'em all as well as Mississippi juke joints.. Our great good fortune has allowed us to tour & record with the best & most culturally significant Blues artists including Carey Bell, Nappy Brown, Jerry McCain and many others...We've played with Bo Diddley and were part of B.B. King's 80th Birthday Tour.

"The King Bees' CAROLINA BOUND could serve as a soundtrack to a blues who's who Saturday-night house-rent party.. It showcases their talented friends along with the King Bees own signature sound... Gritty.. smoking.. This disc works on several levels featuring a multitude of distinct styles and quality performances.. This is a worthy addition to any stack of party records." Marc Coltrain, LIVING BLUES MAGAZINE


Rock Covers - check. Kickin' Originals - check. Always a good time with be the moon!

Pulling from a wide variety of musical genres, be the moon writes Americana/Folk-Rock that brings to mind Tom Petty, Wilco, John Prine, and Ryan Adams.

be the moon was started in August of 2011 as the collaborative music effort of Vocalist/Percussionist Adam Shaw and Vocalist/Guitarist Elliott Humphries. Since then the group has since expanded into something more than either ever expected. The additions of bassist Freddie Alderman and drummer Steven Bristow have expanded the group's sound dramatically. Acoustic and folk rock with a twist of Americana. Original material and our own versions of covers from various genres.

Local Indie, Folk, Blues and Rock are on the horizon
