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.
