About Blackbird Brewery
Husband and Wife Owners Ian and Harmony VanGundy
Husband and wife owners Ian and Harmony VanGundy have spent their professional lives taking care of people, making great beer, and helping build great local breweries in Wake Forest and Raleigh, NC. In 2022, with decades of experience in brewing, sales, and distribution, and minds full of ideas, it was time to create something new. They wanted to create a more thoughtful approach to brewing and living. A place for remote workers and family-focused beer drinkers—where people from all walks of life could find their new favorite place and their new favorite beer.
At Blackbird Brewery, our mission is to be a messenger of hope:
Our time on the planet is short. Take nothing for granted. Keep your glass and your life filled with the best the world has to offer.
