Aviator Brewing Company
Aviator Brewing Company 
209 Technology Park Lane
Fuquay Varina, NC 27526
(919) 567-2337
Aviator Brewing Company started in November of 2008 in an airplane hangar. We initially brewed into two used dairy tanks.  Each tank held 300 gallons of beer.  Much to our surprise we quickly outgrew these tanks!  We added two used 30 bbl fermentors to the brewery and the capacity increased.  In January 2009 we had started distribution into the Triangle area.  The demand for the beer grew faster than we could brew.  In April 2010 we moved from the airplane hangar at Triple W airport to a larger building about 4 miles away.  We have expanded the brewery yet again and have added more fermentation tanks and a large cooler.  In September 2011 we added (3) 60 bbl fermentation tanks.  We also just added a 22oz bottling system to put some of our beer on the store shelves! (finally).  A 30Bbl brewhouse was installed in March of 2012, increasing our capacity 3 fold.  Keep an eye out for our beer in your area soon!
Brewer: Mark Doble
Saison de Aviator   a Belgian wheat beer spiced with coriander and sweet orange peel. An unfiltered golden colored ale with a fruity trappist yeast. A crowd pleaser. Great beer to pick up your spirits after mowing the lawn. Or to get your head working better after a day’s work in the old cube farm. 6.5% abv

HotRod Red   a somewhat classic Irish Red Ale. This ale is feisty and a bit hoppy. There is a malty sweetness and a somewhat dry finish. Traditional East Kent Goldings but with a nice touch of Cascade and dash of roasted barley give this ale a great taste. 6.1% abv

Devil's Trampling Ground Triple   a hearty Tripel Belgian ale. This  Tripel is a golden colored ale that has a fruity spicy flavor that finishes a bit sweet. The Devil's Tripel is light tasting from the addition of candy sugar. We add just the right amount of hops to balance out the sweetness. 9.2% abv

HogWild India Pale   a golden brew made with Pale Ale and Vienna malts.  A veritable fest of the big "C" hops.  Chinook, Columbus, Cascade.  Dry hopped with 30lbs of Magnum and Williamette.  This is a very hoppy and refreshing ale. 6.7% abv

Blind Squirrel Brewery.
4716 South US Hwy 19E
Plumtree, NC 28664
(828) 765-2739
We opened the brewery operations in August of 2012 and are scheduled to produce 500 barrels in 2013.  We began this project with the renovations of the T.B Vance General Store, circa 1919, and it has evolved ever since. 
Blind Squirrel IPA    many examples of American IPAs tend to be hop “bombs” that will make you pucker up with that “bitter beer face”.  We brew our IPA with just the right amount of bittering hops, but we make sure to focus on the more delicate qualities of humulus lupulus. That's why we load it up with late addition hops that inundate the senses with piney, citrusy and floral contributions. 7% abv

Blind Squirrel Nut Brown Ale
     we selected certain malts for our grain bill that give it that nutty/toasted flavor that squirrels love.  We keep the hop additions to a minimum in order for those malty flavors and aromas to shine through.  We ferment with a clean neutral yeast that provides for a nice smooth malty finish with just enough residual sweetness that will keep you wanting more. 6% abv

Blind Squirrel Stout    specialty grains and fresh yeast provide a wonderful complex beer that delights even the most discernible palate.  The roasted character will dominate the first sip, but easing right in behind it will be hints of coffee, vanilla, chocolate and other wonderful toasted flavors and aromas. 5.7% abv

Blind Squirrel Belgian Tripel    is brewed using a simple malt bill and only a few hop additions.  While the malt and hops do contribute to the final product it's really the yeast that's on display here. Hints of raisins, plums, apricots, tangerines, and some spicy notes. 9%abv

brevard breing co
Brevard Brewing Co.
63 E Main St   
Brevard, NC 28712
(828) 885-2101
"While German-inspired lagers are my specialty, I will never forget the wonderful contributions that American home brewers have made to the beer world over the past thirty years.  I typically find myself drinking a cold, smooth, Pilsner, but every now and again, my taste buds crave a bold, hoppy American IPA.  This is why Brevard Brewing Company offers American ales in addition to German lagers.  No matter your mood or what you are craving, we have the right beer for you."
Brewer: Kyle Williams, Elizabeth Williams, Hanes Hoffman
Brevard American Premium Lager  so delicious it proves it's OK for beer geeks to drink "lawnmower beer".  It is packed with more flavor than you will find in the average American canned beer, but light enough to drink all summer day long.  4.9% abv

Brevard Bohemian Pilsner  Brevard's flagship beer.  Cold lager fermentation and a medium-light body produce a crisp, clean, and smooth mouthfeel. Imported noble hops from the Czech Republic and Germany lend a floral aroma and spicy hop flavor, while extremely soft brewing water creates soft, round flavors.  This beer is the perfect marriage of flavor and drinkability. 4.9% abv

Brevard American IPA   the hallmark of a great IPA is drinkability, and this beer is no exception. Five separate hop additions make this beer explode with citrusy hop bitterness, flavor, and aroma.   Medium-light bodied and superbly quaffable,  be careful with this one because the 6.0% alcohol content sneaks up on you quickly! 6.0% abv

Brevard Munich Dunkel  (pronounced Doon-kel):  Brevard Brewing Company's darkest beer--finally, a welcome alternative to the mandatory Porter found in nearly every craft brewery line-up in the country.  Dunkel literally means "dark" in German, but don't let the dark color fool you.  This is still a German lager beer.  While chocolate malt and an abundance of German Munich malts provide a solid malt backbone, the medium body and lager fermentation make this beer surprisingly drinkable.  If a Porter and an Oktoberfest had a baby, this would be it.  Tastes like a dark beer, but drinks like a Pilsner. 5.0% abv

Brevard ESB  Brevard's ESB is a bit darker than most, pouring a deep amber color, but the hops are really what shine in this beer.  Over 1 lb per barrel of East Kent Golding hops were used to produce a distinctly English, pungently floral aroma and flavor profile, making this beer a joy to drink. 5.4% abv

Bull City Burger and Brewery
107 E Parrish St
Durham, NC 27701
(919) 680-2333
Bull City Burger and Brewery is a locally owned independant restaurant and craft brewery, opened March 25, 2011.  We have up to 8 beers on tap at any given time, creating fresh ales and lagers rotating seasonally throughout the year. Just malt, hops, yeast, and water - no adjuncts or additives.  Our long term goal is to become part of the cycle of energy with the restaurant playing an integral role in the farms we source. Grain left over from the brewing process feeds locally farmed pigs and chickens. They provide pork bellies and for bacon and eggs for our over easy burgers. Used fryer oil becomes bio-diesel and 99.9% of our food waste goes to feed pigs on a local farm. 
Brewer: Luke Studer, Seth Gross, Shadoe Stewart
Parrish Street Pale Ale  has an aluuring autumn hue. Aromas of caramel, orange zest, and light floral hops greet the nose. A pleasant sweet malt character up front is followed quickly by apricot. The finish is crisp and hoppy, providing a nice counterpoint to the malt. Sporting a fuller body it is richer, hoppier, and darker than our Golden Ale.  The hops used are Northern Brewer, Goldings, and Fuggles.

Bull's IPA   our version of an India Pale Ale is unfiltered to maintain all the gorgeous hop aromas and flavors. Bull's IPA is balanced in style, playing the rich hop aromas against the malt  flavors. Apricots, flowers, citrus, and caramel nite in a mouth full of beer goodness. Noticeably bitter and full bodied, as is appropriate for this style.  Dry hopped with 7lbs of Fuggles, in addition to the Northern Brewers, Goldings, and Fuggles hops used (over 31lbs per batch!).

Youngen Horny Barley Wine   is an English-Style barley wine made in the traditional smooth style.  THis once a year brew started out with nearly 950 pounds of malt squeezed into a seven barrel mash tun. We pushed our system to its limits and six weeks later arrived at a deliciously balanced 9.2% abv beer with fruity fig and caramel aromas, a light toasty crust quality, and an intensely long finish. The hops used are Northern Brewers, Fuggles, and Goldings.

Pratt Pilsner   is brewed as close to a true Czech Pilsner as we can in Durham. The water was softened, Saaz hops imported from the former Czechoslovakia, the malt a true Pilsen style, Bavarian yeast. And the brewers even changedd their names to Laco and Svec during the brewing. Lightly golden in color, crystal clear,  a fine example of the "Beer of Kings" - a classic lager, without any watering down.  THe hops used are Perle and Saaz.

Sky Blue Golden Ale   for those desiring a lighter beer that still has hand crafted integrity, this is a Kolsch style ale  made famous in its namesake city of Cologne (Koln in German). This thirst-quenching brew is spritzy, not too malty with the pleasing aroma of imported Hallertauer hops. While fermented warm like all ales, Kolsch beer undergoes a cold aging period like a lager which results in a brew that is complex, yet easy to drink.

Copperline Amber Ale  this red ale, brewed with caramel and pale malts, is abest seller at the Carolina Brewery. Using traditional brewing methods, the ale yeast provides a touch of fruit and works in tandem with the malt to make a very drinkable ale. Ken Golding hops lend just enough bitterness and aroma to round out the flavor.

Flagship India Pale Ale   this beer has a unique floral aroma from the generous addition of Cascade hops to the fermenter, a proceedure known as dry hopping.

Oatmeal Porter  this hearty dark ale with pleasing hints of molasses and chocolate is robust and full bodied. Fresh rolled oats compliment the brew by creating a nice silky texture and a creamy, rocky head.

Firewater IPA   Five separate hop additions give this beer quite a kick, while a blend of five separate barleys provides malty balance. In the style of the original India Pale Ales, Firewater is brewed strong enough to survive a long journey-either around the world or just from tap to mouth! 

White Zombie Wit  A substantial amount of unmalted wheat gives Zombie it’s unique body and white sheen, while coriander and real orange peel provide a unique, spicy finish.  As for the name… well, it was introduced at Halloween as a seasonal boo, errr brew, and it was a winner.  Now the beer and its name have become a permanent addition to the CVBC lineup.

King Don's Pumpkin Ale   This may be our most complex beer, as it uses five separate barley styles, an artistic touch of hops, spices normally reserved for baking, and really fresh pumpkin!  The caramel, spice, and pumpkin flavors meld into a wonderfully smooth, orange-hued beer that sports a luscious, creamy foam head.  Enjoy this springtime tribute to the fall season!

Hooligan King Scotch Ale  is commonly classified as a “Wee Heavy” in Scotland.  This beer comes across as a complex, layered beverage with a huge malt character.  Hops are present, but as is traditional in Scottish beers, they are subdued.  The malty sweetness is balanced by an alcoholic warming that provides a true soccer-style kick.

Also, Paul and Brandon add oats to the grist to give a subtle round silkiness to the mouthfeel. We’re confident that you’re really going to love this yummy porter!

You can’t judge a beer by its color. Just because a translucent gold ale appears unassuming and dull like many near-tasteless light beers, its actual flavor may very well be unrelated to its hue.

Pale yellow to bright gold colored beers are generally inviting in appeal, though color can be deceiving. Take a golden Czech Pilsner, for instance. Made to style, this thin yellow lager hides a playful punch, thanks to Czech-grown Saaz hops, in its quick bitter finish. Almost as pale in goldness, a potent Belgian Trippel is far-from-harmless. Extremely malty, this beer of the Abbeys is so sweet that its 8% to 12% alcohol content gets lost in the flavor profile.

Don’t be intimidated by dark beer. Brown Ales, like the popular imports Newcastle Brown Ale and Samuel Smith’s Nut Brown Ale, look challenging in their chestnut tinted richness. But the English Brown style leaves little room for bitterness. Friendly caramel sweetness is the dominant flavor in these "dark" beers. Many German lagers also avoid bitterness.

Black beer creates even more apprehension for unschooled beer drinkers. Take Dublin-brewed Guinness Draught Stout. Contrary to its heavy/harsh perception, a result of its opaque bubbling blackness, a pint of Guinness offers creamy mouthfeel and luscious dark chocolate malt flavor, all with only 4.2% alcohol. That’s less alcohol than many of the most popular mega-brewed domestic beers.

And what about those cloudy gold wheat beers? Unfiltered and unabashed, live yeast creates foggy turbidity and contributes greatly to the earthy, spicy flavor profile of traditional Hefeweizens and other wheat beers. A ton of taste hides within this murky brew.

Please be a non-discriminating, color-blind beer drinker. Taste is the most important of the senses when it comes to beer. Don’t let appearance stand in the way of the taste experience. Give every beer a chance. Cheers!
