We’re making the transition to cans – and we’re making it educational!

All of our beers will soon be made available in cans; every Beer 101 will come with a lesson about the history, bitterness, colour, alcohol, ingredients, aroma, flavour, mouthfeel, and the typical food pairings for each particular type of beer.

We are the NC Teaching Brewery, after all!
