As many of you know, our long time bartender Carly has been making delicious kombucha under her Boro Beverage brand for a while, you can buy a glass or growler in our taproom. She is currently crowd funding to renovate a retro camper into a mobile fermented beverage lab. Check out the video and consider helping out this awesome local endeavor.
No Quarter Coffee Stout is back featuring Carrboro Coffee Roasters La Providencia roast, rich coffee and bakers chocolate upfront, toffee and hazelnut on the back end. A silky smooth sipper that won’t disappoint. #ncbeer #craftbeer #stout #coffeebeer
Fresh Big Mon day always puts a smile on our faces. Be on the lookout for these delicious yellow boys on a bottle shop shelf near you. #ncbeer #ipa #craftbeer #bottlingday
New t-shirts are here with a fresh @sheppanator design featuring a rockin’ ankylosaurus, we have also restocked our classic whale 🐳 shirts. Makes a great holiday gift when paired with a Steel String gift card. #ncbeer #craftbeer
Brett Mon is back, in bottles and on tap when we open today. Our IPA fermented solely with brettanomyces has a huge tropical fruit nose, soft bitterness rounded out with a dry funky finish, notes of pine and grapefruit linger on your tongue. This is one of our favorite brews and it’s always nice to welcome it back into the rotation.
Heads up, we will be closed on 🦃Thanksgiving Day🦃, so stock up on bottles today or tomorrow. #ncbeer #craftbeer #ipa #brettanomyces #brettipa

It was a lovely, if a bit chilly evening at the #beersfromhere banquet. Thanks everyone who helped make this project so much fun! All the foraged beverages were incredible , the food fantastic and hearty. Thanks @trianglelandconservancy , for being great hosts! 🙏 #ncbeer #craftbeer #foragedbeer #beerdinner
The Beers From Here banquet is tomorrow! We’ll be pouring Unconditional Skies, a Grisette with Juniper, Rose hips, Maypops and aged on Hickory staves, alongside two other forage inspired beers and a cider. This is the culmination of a project we started thinking about over a year ago, we wanted to connect more with native ingredients that surround us and inspire area Brewers to think creatively about what makes our region unique. Very excited to share the stories these beverages tell. Tickets are available through the link in our profile and proceeds benefit Triangle Land Conservancy.
We want to thank our sponsor Epiphany Craft Malt for helping to make this happen, and our foraging partners Piedmont Picnic Project for sharing their knowledge of our native flora. Last but not least our partner chefs who are feeding us so wonderfully tomorrow night – Vimala’s Curryblossom Café, Goorsha Durham, The Eddy Pub, East Durham Pie Company .

We just installed some sweet custom signage over our fully stocked beer fridge👌👍, @sheppanator rocking the design as always. Be on the lookout for some other small scale taproom improvements in the coming weeks and months as we give some tender love and care to our nearly 5 year old brewery. Also, a fresh batch of Rubber Room dropped today 👏. #ncbeer #craftbeer
