Bryant Bridge Gateway Golden Ale
low hop bitterness, light, clean, easy drinking - 4.5%
This straw-colored golden beer is light on the tongue, with low hop levels and notes of peach and citrus on the nose and in the flavor. We recommend this brew to those just venturing into craft beer and anyone looking for a refreshing thirst quencher. Durham's Bryant Bridge crosses Rte. 147, shining brightly at night with its blue LED lights. It is the gateway to the Bull City and this is our gateway to drinking craft beer.
W.E.B. DuBois Saison
Bright floral, unfiltered, rustic - 5.8%
Our Saison is a spicy, cloudy, golden-colored ale with tart citrus notes and generous hop bitterness in the traditional style. The alcohol level is moderately high, yet the beer is thirst quenching for the hot summer months. Named for author, W.E.B. Du Bois, who published “The Upbuilding of Black Durham. The Success of the Negroes and Their Value to a Tolerant and Helpful Southern City” talking about the progress he witnessed in Durham during his visit in the early 1900s.
Parrish Street Pale Ale
orange zest, bittersweet caramel, floral hops - 5.0%
Our Parrish Street Pale Ale has an alluring autumn, copper hue. Aromas of caramel, orange zest, and light floral hops greet the nose. The flavor provides a pleasant, sweet malt character up front and the finish is crisp and hoppy, providing a nice counterpoint to the malt. This district of Parrish Street was known as “Black Wall Street” in the early twentieth century, as it was the home to many black-owned businesses including the Mechanics and Farmers Bank and North Carolina Mutual Insurance.
Single Hop IPA: Centennial
orange blossom, dry bitterness, citrus - 6.2%
Try the next entry in a series of IPAs we are brewing to explore new hop varieties and experimental hop varietals. We use the same simple base malt recipe with each batch of Single Hop IPA to truly show off the character of the chosen hop. This batch features Centennial hops, a great example of “old school” American hops. The aroma is floral, with a strong scent of orange blossom. The flavor traditional spicy hops, dry bitterness, and more citrus in the form of orange peel.
Dr. Bartlett's Ordinary Bitter
sessionable, dry, mild bitterness - 4.0%
Ordinary Bitter isn’t very bitter and is far from ordinary. A style not often seen in the US, the Ordinary Bitter is a British "session" ale, lighter in body, thirst quenching and immensely drinkable. Dr. Bartlett S. Durham is the origin of our city’s name. Dr. Durham purchased land between Wake and Orange counties, in the 1840s, where he built a train station. The postman, not knowing what to call the place, would yell out “mail’s here for Durham!” and the name stuck.
Stierstadt Octoberfest Lager
Caramel malt, spicy hops, crisp dry finish - 5.5%
“Stierstadt” is German for “Bull City,” and this traditional German-style “Oktoberfest” lager is brewed with a combination of Munich malts, German Hallertauer Hersbrucker hops, and Bavarian lager yeast, making it taste like you are sitting in the tents of Bavaria at the most famous beer festival in the world. This medium-bodied amber-colored beer comes out clean and crisp, with toasty malts and a balanced bitterness from the German hops.
* SPECIAL RELEASE *
Star Lite Black Lager
*2017 Best in Show in the NC Craft Brewer's Cup*
malty, bready, crisp dry finish - 5.5%
Awarded Best in Show in the 2017 NC Brewers’ Cup, this Black Lager is crisp, clean, and easy to enjoy. A Schwarzbier, as it is known in Germany, gets its dark color from a small amount of roasted malts that impart a low bitterness, gentle roastiness, and reddish-black hue. The Starlite drive-in movie theatre opened in the mid-1940s. In 1986, Bob Groves reopened the theatre, which closed for good in 2007. In 2004, the community rallied together to rebuild the screen after a tragic fire.
