Here is my very first vlog please let me know what you think in the comments below. This video features an interview with Brad and a look at Bull Durham Brewery located inside of Durham Bulls Stadium.
To say I was excited to visit Bull Durham Beer Company this past weekend was a huge understatement. I love going to Durham Bulls Stadium any chance I get and I am also a home brewer so I was excited to chat with Brad and Garrett. I couldn't wait to see and hear about all of the great things they were doing from their brewery located inside of the Durham Bulls Stadium.
Brad met me in the lobby and brought me upstairs to the brewery. I was amazed to see how much brewing equipment they had in a fairly small area inside of the park.
Bull Durham Beer Company produces 4 different brews that they sell at the park during Bulls games. They have a White IPA (yummy), Kolsh (also yummy), Wheat, and Amber Ale. Brad gave me a tour of the brewery then we went upstairs for a quick interview for the vlog. I have to say I have never been behind the scenes at Bull Park but man is it beautiful. After the interview we went back down to the brewery where I spent some time geeking out about brewing with Garrett who is a brewer there. He spent quite a bit of time with me getting into some very technical details about their brewing process. He showed my their state of the art brewing system from Germany. He also told me that their beer is doing so well that they are brewing nearly every day to keep up with demand. After chatting, Garrett offered a White IPA which I have to say was really, really good. I also tried the Kolsh which was fantastic! Garrett told me the story of how the Kolsh was served at a wedding where one of the guests was about to open Bull Durham Beer Company and was so impressed he asked the now Executive Brewer Sabastian Wolfrum to run the brewery.
Brad also explained that they are working on getting some space adjacent to the brewery for a year round tap room. He also let me know that they will soon be distributing their beer in the Durham area with possible future expansion to the rest of the triangle. Look for the taproom to open this summer or fall right next to Only Burger on Blackwell St.
The next time you take in a Bulls Game and would love a fresh locally brewed (locally as in within step of the serving area) stop by Bull Durham Beer Company and say hello to Brad and the crew there. Also check out their "Bottoms Up" filling system the most unique way to pour a beer that I have ever seen. Check out their website for more info:
