Thickfreakness Imperial Stout is back and the perfect sidekick for some Sunday afternoon tunes. This big roasty stout clocks in at 9% and sips ever so sweetly. Goes particularly well with some live Piedmont blues from @joshuasheltonplays #ncbeer #crafbeer
Long overdue visit to @woodenrobotbrewery in Charlotte. These folks are making some mighty tasty beer. They are one of the fantastic breweries joining us at the Sour Barn Bash on December 10th. Tickets are on sale now(link in profile). Buy VIP tickets between now and Monday will enter you into a drawing for an overnight package at Rock Quarry Farm for the bash! #ncbeer
Cryin’ Holy Double IPA makes its 12oz debut today. Dry-hopped with Citra and Mosaic this beer has a dank tropical fruit aroma and assertive bitterness finishing fairly dry for a beer its size. Drink it fresh! #ncbeer #craftbeer
Hell yea!! That was our reaction when we heard about #MANIFEST – a brand new music festival organized by local musicians to promote inclusiveness in music and our community. Manifest features artists that are either female or gender non-conforming performing everything from punk to country to electronica. We are proud to sponsor this homegrown goodness. Tickets are only $20 which is less than a dollar/band! It’s going down this Friday and Saturday at The Cave, Local 506, and The Nightlight.
Steel String & Carrboro Coffee teamed up for
This tasty Stout!
We are proud to sponsor Manifest 2016! This brand new music festival is locally organized and designed to fight racism, sexism, homophobia, and transphobia through kickass punk rock, country, hardcore and electronic music. Tickets are only $20 for both days(this Friday and Saturday), which is an awesome deal for the plethora of great music at 3 local venues! Inclusive projects like Manifest that build a stronger community make Carrboro/Chapel Hill such an awesome place to live.
We have a luscious new beer out today. Cherrymania is our Gose loaded with cherry puree. The pleasant tartness cuts the sweetness of the syrupy cherries resulting in a wonderfully refreshing quaffer, but don’t take our word for it. #ncbeer #sourbeer #gose #craftbeer

Hexanews! Sort of…excited about playing this show with the great @Jeffrey Dean Foster tomorrow -at Steel String in Carrboro:
Join us on December 10th for an afternoon filled with some of the best sour and funky beer being produced in NC and beyond!
In just over two months time we will welcome our friends, many of the best brewers of sour and funky beer in NC and the surrounding region to beautiful Rock Quarry Farm for an afternoon of incredible sour beer and fun. The 2nd Sour Barn Bash will be a testament to the magnitude of beautiful and unique sour beer now being made in our state. Looking back at the first Sour Barn Bash we felt immense pride in the quality of sour beer being produced by NC brewers, 8 months later this feeling has only intensified. We will include a few out of state friends, a few returning from last year and few new friends, but most of the brewery additions this year will come from within NC.
We will do our best to maintain what was best about the first bash while expanding the event ever so slightly. One thing we are most excited about this year is our plan to create a spontaneously fermented beer at the event. This one of a kind beer will not be released, but only shared at future bashes and events hosted by our fellow brewers. Our hope is that spirit of merriment and camaraderie engendered will infuse the ambient microbes of Rock Quarry Farm to create something memorable and unique.
The 2nd Sour Barn Bash is Saturday, December 10th from 2-6pm and benefits Benevolence Farm. For more information including ticket sales and a list of participating breweries check out the event FB page or head to sourbash.com, we hope to see you there!
It’s a dreary day and we understand if it’s making you feel a little introverted. We’re still open at 2pm and good news is we have plenty of beer ready to go home with you. Our beer tastes just as good whether you are wearing sweatpants on the couch in front of some Netflix or in your fabulous Friday night best out with friends. Rubber Room Rye Pale Ale 6packs are $11 and No Quarter Coffee Stout 4packs are $9. Or grab one of our delicious barrel aged sours! #ncbeer
We agree! The best part is they operate just two blocks from the brewery and they deliver if you ask nicely. Wednesday’s get $2 off your pie when you buy a pint at Steel String.
Tomorrow, for the first time ever we’ll put Rubber Room into bottles. This beer has been a big part of us, since long before we first opened our doors some 3.5 years ago. We’re very happy with how this beer has developed over the years while maintaining its core simplicity – well hopped, sessionable, delicious. #ncbeer #craftbeer #sessionbeer
This lovely sight will greet you in the taproom today. We still have a few cases of No Quarter Coffee Stout available in 4 packs for $9 each. Additionally we have bottles of Shady Grove, Lonesome Ellen and Pretty Polly barrel aged sours for onsite sippin’ or to take home. We hope to have 6packs of a Steel String favorite available later this week. #weneedabiggerfridge #ncbeer #craftbeer
Thanks to errbody who came to our bottle release yesterday! We were honored to get everyone’s feedback on Shady Grove and Lonesome Ellen.
Along with normal taproom hours, today we are pouring at @abundance_nc Pepper Fest! We are pouring our No Quarter Coffee Stout infused with ancho peppers, coconut, @carrborocoffee yergz beans. cinnamon and one Serrano pepper. Should be really yummy. #ncbeer #craftbeer
Our bottle release is happening now! Come enjoy some delicious sour beer and pie, grab a few bottles to go.
