Deep River Brewing Opening In Clayton, NC.
Clayton is about to get it’s first brewery when Deep River Brewing opens for business in early Spring of 2013. The brewery is located in a cool old red brick building on Main Street in Downtown Clayton. The Brewery is run by husband and wife team of Paul and Linda Auclair who have been hard at work getting ready to brew some local beers. Have you seen some of the names that small craft breweries put on their beers?
Beers on Tap
Some of the beers Deep River plans to offer are the Twisted River Wit, JOCO White Winter and the 4042 Stout. These are definitely local beers! Staying with the local theme the brewers plan to use locally grown ingredients whenever possible. With the amount of breweries opening in the Triangle of late there is a push to get farmers to start growing hops helped by the Department of Horticultural Science at NCSU.
This old building in Clayton looks ideal for a brewery and seeing a video of the facility on their website they have some reclaimed wood from a tobacco barn which they have used on the walls and also to make the bar. Shiny big tanks are being hooked up to ferment the beer.
North Carolina Becoming a Brewers Haven
Here is an interesting fact North Carolina has 61 operating breweries and brewpubs, Asheville was named Beer City USA in 2010.The Triangle region alone is now home to 11 breweries with more on the way.
Get your fill of the local brews at events throughout the year such as the North Carolina Brewers and Music Festival, Bull City Food and Beer Experience and more.
