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 founder, president, and majority owner of the company, making Casita Brewing Company a female-owned, minority-owned business.
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 100 different beers. Ryan is excited to bring his 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 nonprofit 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 nonprofit of the month.
