Over the coming weeks and months you will notice some changes happening in our brewery and taproom. Things might get messy and cramped at stages, so please excuse our mess as we get everything ready to make a lot more beer. Today the glass encasing our brewery came down, exposing it to the taproom. We kindly ask that folks refrain from touching the system. It could result in a nasty burn, shock or cause costly damage. These are exciting developments that will lead to a better steel string experience for everyone, so again please bare with us. If you get curious about what’s happening, feel free to ask your friendly steel string bartender or brewer.

Oh yea! We’re doing the Choco Thickfreakness bake-off again. If you didn’t participate last time either as a taster or baker, heres your chance to relive all the delicious and decadent glory. We’re calling all amateur dessert chefs to make your best pairing to our bourbon barrel aged, chocolate infused monster of a stout. There will be fabulous prizes for the winners, anyone who attends can vote for their favorite. We’ll have Choco Thickfreakness on tap, along with a few surprise additions. This event is free to attend.

This might not be as exciting as a post about…

This might not be as exciting as a post about beer but it is definitely more important. Carrboro and Chapel Hill have for too long had serious issues with poverty, hunger and homelessness. We reside in one of the wealthiest county’s in the region, in the wealthiest nation the world has ever seen. We find the fact that so many of our neighbors are struggling each day with basic necessities to be a great disgrace which wounds our very souls, and an affront to our stated values.

We find ourselves now in a rare moment when these issues are on the forefront of our community’s consciousness and we must use it to make serious progress in alleviating these issues. For the last few months groups of specific interests have been meeting about these issues, and many people felt it was time to have a more inclusive discussion. Steel String offers it’s space as a place to start this community wide discussion.

We invite anyone who wishes to provide their experience, knowledge, ideas, concerns or simple desire to learn more about these critical issues to attend the first conversation on Wednesday January 27th @7pm. This will only be a starting point for greater community engagement.
