Crank Arm Brewery: A beer for the masses

Officially, the local band A Rooster For The Masses is on what frontman Adam Eckhardt calls "a hiatus of undermined length." A major reason for that is beer, but not necessarily in the way you'd think. Eckhardt is an avid home-brewer, a hobby he has taken public as one of the partners behind the newly opened Crank Arm Brewing Co.

A spinoff of Crank Arm Rickshaw, it's a brewpub with a bike and rickshaw theme -- and a large part of the overall vibe and ambiance comes from area artist Nate Sheaffer's industrial pieces throughout the space. For more, see this story from Sunday's paper.

Crank Arm Brewing Co. to open this spring in Raleigh's warehouse district

Crank Arm Brewing Co. announced today that it plans to open this spring in downtown Raleigh's warehouse district.

The craft brewery with a seven-barrel system will open at 319 W. Davie St. The location will not only house a brewery and a bar but also a rolling team of rickshaws to take people on tours of downtown Raleigh and make beer deliveries to individuals, bars and restaurants. (The brewery is an expansion of the local rickshaw company, Crank Arm Rickshaw. Their press release touts their commitment to green transportation. They also own a delivery truck powered by used vegetable oil.)

There will be two flagship beers on tap at all times when the brewery opens: Rickshaw Rye, a Rye India Pale Ale, and White Wall Wit, an American Wit. Those two beers will be joined by a rotating list of four seasonal beers.
