Brice's Brewing Company
We are purveyors of truly inspired beer made with the utmost care for people who seek craft brew at a reasonable price. The company’s name was inspired by Kris’s grandfather, who recommended it (the owner’s middle name). The company’s logo was inspired by Kris’s grandmother, who passed away in 2009. Needless to say, this company is inspired by family and love.
Bull City Ciderworks
The BULL doesn't play by the rules. Hard cider doesn't have to be sickeningly sweet and taste artificial. Our ciders are made with 100% apple juice and never back-sweetened with high fructose corn syrup, so you taste the apple in all its glory! Gluten-free yeast and ingredients ensure a naturally gluten-free cider. The BULL is bucking the trend of mainstream ciders. Taste the revolution!

Cabarrus Brewing Company
The Cabarrus Brewing Company (CBC) was born as the result of combining three very different desires on the part of its founders. The first was a sincere desire to develop a business concept that its founders, as all long term residents of Cabarrus County with varying professional backgrounds, saw as an investment in and with their neighbors and community in their own back yard. Second was a sincere desire to develop a concept that showcased the area’s rich history and unique character. Finally and certainly not the least important, is a true passion on the part of the entire CBC family for Craft Beer and the sense of community it represents.
