About Us

Local Beer in Wake Forest, NC

Blackbird Brewery Beer

We at Blackbird Brewery understand that craft beer is no mere beverage. Each drop, each pint, is a form of history, anthropology and sociology. We are students and teachers of the culture and process of brewing. We do not just deal in tanks or barrels or kegs, but in magic and transformation—of our art, craft and chemistry—by every subtle aroma, each fleeting moment.

We explore flavor development through challenging and lesser used traditional techniques combined with the newest discoveries and ingredients we can find. Our highly customized 7bbl brewhouse houses an automated mash mixer and decoction capabilities giving us more control over recipe variables and the ability to process local non-malted grains. We also squeezed in tank designs for adjuncts, fruit, high hop loads, massive malt loads, and natural carbonation in horizontal tanks. This means authentic European styles, expressive IPAs, tart fruit beers, barrel aged stouts and barleywines. Read on to see what local beers we are brewing!

In addition we offer prosecco and cider on draft, fine wines by the glass, and an assortment of non-alcoholic drinks.  Making a trip here for something particular? We do our very best to keep the beer page updated but it’s always best to check our live inventory before traveling.
