Marion's 3/10 Pub Crawl


Change, the act or instance of making or becoming different. That's what has happened in downtown Marion, NC. This "new" area is known as the "3/10 Pub Crawl".  Yes, it's three-tenths of a mile from the one brewery on the south side, to the north side brewery, and includes a variety of "anchor" pubs in between.

Walking the 3/10 Pub Crawl, you'll see an eclectic mix of new and old.  Early 20th century buildings with new "lives" and purpose.  Open now, Mulligan Mack's After 5 Pub & Grill, Crabby Abbey's Bar and Grill, Spillway Bridge & Company, Refinery 13 and Mica Town Brewing.  Coming soon, Keeper's Cut Meadery, one of North Carolina's handful of mead makers!
