Carolina Brewing Co.
The lion is a traditional brewing symbol, legend has it that before refrigeration the barrels of beer were stored in caves to keep it cool. A lion was perched at the mouth of the cave to ensure none of the tasty liquids were pilfered. We have been unable to confirm the story, but after a few tasty liquids it seems more likely to be true.
Carolina Brewing Company first opened its doors in 1995, making it the oldest active brewery in Wake County.
