The West End is one of the oldest, most historic parts of Winston-Salem. It’s actually a national historic district that was built as a planned suburb of Winston at the turn of the 20th century. (It’s funny to think of it as a suburb now, because its proximity is so close to downtown by today’s standards, but when it was built West End residents were able to easily travel to and from downtown by streetcar.)
West End’s buildings and homes date back to as early as 1887, encompassing many beautiful styles of architecture like Classical Revival, Queen Anne, and American Craftsman. These lovely homes make West End a go-to spot in Winston-Salem when it comes to finding a house that’s loaded with character. Additionally, the neighborhood is also home to a collection of wonderful restaurants, breweries, and shops.
The West End offers the best of everything. Our community is diverse and from all walks of life. One of my favorite activities is to relax on our front people with a glass of wine and socialize with neighbors out enjoying our beautiful community.

The West End is full of history, tradition, and personality.
When Joymongers Brewing Co was looking for a second home, West End was the perfect neighborhood: historic, friendly, close-knit, & in the heart of Winston-Salem. In 2018 we renovated & restored a 90 year old garage for our new taproom, creating a neighborhood gathering place to enjoy our local, craft beer with family & friends.
