Established in 2022, the Milton 66 is a passion project for four partners who love creative community spaces.

Angry Troll Brewing

Angry Troll Brewing is Elkin, NC’s homegrown local Restaurant, brewery, and Taproom located within a renovated historic Main Street warehouse.

Angry Troll Brewing was founded from the inspiration of Elkin’s historic Hugh Chatham Memorial bridge, built in 1931, that connected the towns of Elkin and Jonesville and was demolished in 2010. This brewery is located right beside where the beloved bridge had passed. And thus, the Angry Troll name began by recalling the story of the troll under the bridge as a way to remember that lost iconic Elkin landmark. The bridge passed directly over the front door into our taproom.
