About RBC

Our Story

Raleigh Brewing’s mission is to embrace the City of Oaks (Raleigh) with every beer brewed. From the murals of the capital city on the taproom walls, to the names of our beers and our involvement with local community organizations and nonprofits, we thrive for this city.  Raleigh Brewing is currently operating on a 20bbl and 3bbl brew house, with a taproom pouring 32 taps 7 days a week.  RBC is in over 200 accounts in the Triangle area of NC and Wilmington.

Kristie Nystedt, the first woman to own a brewery in the state of North Carolina, recognized a void in the market when it came to suppling homebrewers with local supplies and commercial brewers with efficient and quality tanks to produce their beer. So when Raleigh Brewing opened in 2013, it was alongside its two sister companies, Atlantic Brew Supply and ABS Commercial.

Since 2013, Raleigh Brewing has become Wake County’s third largest production brewery, averaging 8,000 bbl of beer per year. Atlantic Brew Supply has become the largest brick and mortar homebrew supply shop on the East Coast and ABS Commercial has expanded its tanks into 34 states and four countries.
