Mother Earth Brewing

A Kinston brewery makes a new statement in an old space.

Leah Hughes

Kinston natives Stephen Hill and his son-in-law Trent Mooring founded Mother Earth Brewing in 2008 in the old Pully’s Barbecue building on Herritage Street. Local artist Dinah Sharpe Sylivant designs each label on the four signature beers to reflect the eastern region. The Dark Cloud label (pictured left) depicts a storm cloud rolling up over an eastern North Carolina tobacco farm. The tap room at Mother Earth offers tastes of the beer brewed in the adjoining room. Sampling a beer at the sleek bar, surrounded by brick, wood, and metal repurposed from the building’s previous lives, it feels like you’re leaving your mark on the old structure, too.
