Apex, NC

Five years ago,  Eric first combined his passion and talent for gourmet cooking with over 20-years of engineering expertise, specifically in treating water. The process of releasing enzymes to break down starches into sugar and fermenting the sugar into alcohol and carbon dioxide is second nature to a water engineer–while balancing delicious flavor is what a gourmet cook strives for. Hence the “blueprint” for great beer was born! Eric’s unique combination of talents led the way for the one-of-a-kind, handcrafted beer, each as original as a fingerprint.

Raleigh Brewing
Raleigh, NC

Kristie Nystedt, the first woman to own a brewery in the state of North Carolina, recognized a void in the market when it came to suppling homebrewers with local supplies and commercial brewers with efficient and quality tanks to produce their beer. So when Raleigh Brewing opened in 2013, it was alongside its two sister companies, Atlantic Brew Supply and ABS Commercial. Raleigh Brewing’s mission is to embrace the City of Oaks (Raleigh) with every beer brewed. From the murals of the capital city on the taproom walls, to the names of our beers and our involvement with local community organizations and nonprofits, they thrive for this city.

Holly Springs, NC

What is a “Bombshell”? One definition is an unexpected surprise! Craft beer is not just for guys! History tells us that brewing beer was traditionally a woman’s job. In fact, the creation of beer is credited to women! The goddess, Ninkasi is recognized for creating the oldest beer recipe in existence, dating back some 3900 years. Until Medieval times, it was the woman’s job to brew beer for the household and laws of that time stated that the tools of brewing were solely the woman’s property.  Fast forward to modern times, the evolution of craft beer and the partnership of the original Bombshell Girls-Ellen Joyner, Jackie Hudspeth and Michelle Miniutti, three home brewers following their dreams. Together, they draw upon the power of their brains, beauty and beliefs that great brewing practices make for great beer and great times for all.
