Y’all come on over to experience an environment that highlights the historical importance of our town, supports local artisans, and will give you a one-of-a-kind experience in the heart of Downtown Cary. Cotton House Craft Brewers Tap House is a unique historical landmark positioned in the heart of Downtown Cary.


Stop by and have a seat in one or our rocking chairs on the front porch, enjoy our spacious back deck, or chose from a variety of cozy seating options inside. We will have bartenders roaming the property to make sure everyone is served and no one has to wait in long lines to enjoy one of our own great beers, a glass from our great wine and cider list, or any one of our other beverages. We offer a menu from The Veranda Restaurant that’s delivered to your seat and a food truck rotation.


The Pasmore House, built circa 1900, was originally used as a boarding facility for some of the very first students at Cary High School. When you enter and as you wander throughout, you will see the original character of the house has been restored, highlighted, and displayed so that everyone can appreciate the 100-plus years of memories made within the walls.

Our comfortable historic venue has been carefully updated with modern touches throughout. Two of the original brick fireplaces were exposed to highlight the craftsmanship from 120 years ago. The tap room includes a 25-foot prohibition-era style bar with a stunning Italian marble top. Above are handmade NC walnut lighting fixtures, a bar back handcrafted by a local carpenter, and tap handles created by a local master woodworker. The walls feature historical photographs of the Town of Cary and surrounding area and reminders of what life was like in the early 20th century.

The back room is filled with local NC artwork available for viewing and purchasing. There is also a 1910 piano available for guest musicians to play at their leisure.

As you make your way through the house you’ll find yourself on a large back deck that overlooks a beautiful backyard that includes views of the Downtown Cary fountain, the new library complex, and backs right up to what will soon be the town centerpiece urban park. During the Winter, the deck will be covered with a heated and lighted tent so more folks can enjoy our venue and have some fresh air!

From the hops, to the history, to the house – it’s all local.
