“Vecino” is the Spanish word for “neighbor,” and Vecino Brewing in Carrboro takes great care to be a good neighbor through local beers, local food prepared by Chef Leah Plumlee and frequent partnerships with local non-profit organizations.

Listen below to hear WCHL’s Ron Stutts speak with the general manager of Vecino, Monica Molina, and to hear what the staff at Vecino is up to over in their neck of the woods in Carrboro.

Everything at Vecino is locally-focused, from pint glass to plate, as they embrace their philosophy of being a “brewing neighbor.” After all, it’s the support of the community that keeps the doors open and allows the fine folks creating food and drink at Vecino to continue living out their dreams and practicing their passion!


This weekly segment uncovers the local impact the tourism industry has on our community, told through the stories of the people who make tourism flourish in Orange County. Listen during the Ron Stutts Show every Thursday at 8:40 for a new “This is Tourism” live interview!
