Casita Brewing Company is owned and operated by Ryan and Mahalia Witter-Merithew. Ryan is a seasoned brewer, having worked as a professional brewer in Denmark, England, and of course, the United States over the last thirteen years. Mahalia is the heart of the business and the president of the company.
Casita started as a contract brewery at Hill Farmstead Brewery in Greensboro Vermont in 2015. In 2017, this business moved to our home state of North Carolina, where they produced beer at Duck-Rabbit Brewery in Farmville. In 2020, they opened the first ever Casita brewery and taproom in Mahalia's hometown of Wilson, NC.
Over the years, Casita has produced over 50 different beers. Ryan is excited to bring this creativity to the new taproom.
The logo for Casita is a letter 'C' in the shape of a little house. The 'C' of course stands for Casita, but the 'C' does not only represent the brand, but a lot of Ryan and Mahalia's other favorite words that start with 'C', like craftsmanship, creativity, compassion, and community. These are the key principles of this business.
At Casita, 25% of all tips are donated to a different charity of the month each month. All of the bartenders at Casita make at least $10 an hour, and both Ryan and Mahalia take shifts working behind the bar, as well as some local celebrities from each charity of the month.
This year we will be partnering with:
The Wilson Arts Council
Breast Cancer Research Foundation
The Maggie Society
Wilson Opportunity Center, Inc.
Wilson Education Partnership
Seeds of Hope
Vollis Simpson Whirligig Park

As a fun way to kick off the opening of our new business, we are attempting to break the Guinness Book of World Records record for the most contributions to a paint-by-numbers painting. The current record is held by Doha, Qatar. If you would like to help us make history and win this record for North Carolina, sign up to participate in the Products section below. Interested participants can register by color. Each color represents a different week that you can come by and check out the brewery and participate in this exciting project. Come by anytime between the hours of 8:30am and 6:00pm during your color week to participate in the mural painting project. We are charging a small fee of $5.00 per person to participate in this project. The $5.00 will include a souvenir ”Recordbreaker” paintbrush which will be used on the day. This fee is necessary to cover the cost of the materials for this project and to cover the cost of an external organization to monitor and record data for this 8-week-long event to ensure the integrity of the record-keeping process.
Let’s do something beautiful together during this time when so many feel apart.
