On this day two years ago we hosted the first Cardinal Directions Beer Festival. We crunched 13 NC breweries and 650 people into the back 1/2 of our parking lot, and we had a great time. Two years later we have added a few more breweries, food trucks and attendees but our goal remains the same – showcase the best that NC Beer has to offer in a relaxed environment with good friends. Hope you will join us for year 3 on Sunday May 21st on the Carrboro Town Commons. #ncbeer #cardinaldirectionsbeerfest 📷: @beerstudy

The Merry Franksters are back at it tonight with their killer hot dawgs, right up the street at Cliffs meat market. We suggest their Chicago dawg with a super fresh Cryin’ Holy, or check out their vegan roasted carrot dawg with a Brett Mon. It should be a lovely evening to get some patio time in. #ncbeer #hotdogsandbeer

Fresh batch of Brett Mon on tap now, bottles coming later this week. Fermented with a fruitastic brett strain and dry hopped bountifully this ale bursts with apricot, papaya, and candied orange flavors. The back end hits you with the funk and a pleasant but assertive bitterness. #ncbeer #craftbeer #brettanomyces

We’re thrilled to introduce Handsome Angeline on draft today in very limited quantity. More draft and 500 ml bottles will be available soon.
•• •• ••
Handsome Angeline is a Piedmont style Kvass brewed with 200 pounds of rye bread, fermented with a sourdough bread culture all curtesy of Chicken Bridge Bakery
Additions of foraged pine needles, Duncan grapefruit and fennel bring a wonderful layer of flavors to this unique brew.
We brewed this little(3.3%) beauty with the help of the sui generis Fonta Flora Brewery on the eve of the Sour Barn Bash.
•• •• ••
Handsome Angeline is very tart and zippy with a strong citrus and stone fruit flavor upfront, spicy rye and chewy bread notes on the finish. This beer defies easy categorization. #ncbeer #craftbeer #kvass

At this time four years ago Scott Nurkin of The Mural Shop was putting the final touches on this masterpiece. Will was troubleshooting our brand new brewing system, making certain every piece of equipment was correctly plumbed, wired and tested. Andrew and I were scrambling to ready the taproom for y’all, the fine people of Carrboro and all the craft beer lovers who would soon be enjoying their first Steel String brew. It’s a jolt to reflect back on this early chaotic period. Four years flew by in flash and we’re still doing the same ole thing – trying to make the best beer possible and deliver it to you in an enjoyable, comfortable setting. Thanks for having us Carrboro, I think we’ll stick around a while longer.
