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.

It's the perfect place to celebrate a great day at Hanging Rock State Park, a mountain bike ride at Moore's Springs Trails, a climb on Cook's wall, or to cap off a kayak or canoe paddle down the Dan River.

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.

Hanging Rock Songwriters Showcase

Joshua Shelton
Hailing from historic Danbury at the foot of Hanging Rock and the banks of the Dan River, Shelton's life has been steeped in the music of the mountains. 


Nick Bullins
A native of Walnut Cove, NC, Bullins reaches origins from modern to baroque finger-style acoustic picking to world folk and bluegrass banjo. A member and leader of the indie folk rock band, Royal House, his work stretches far beyond imagination and even farther back in cultural timeline with spiritual Native American and world influences. His originality is represented in his songs of hopefulness and deep thinking, with a musical family background that follows close behind.

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