Scott Palmieri and Scott Wood, owners of Draft Line Brewing, officially opened their doors in June of 2014. Located in a renovated warehouse in Historic downtown Fuquay-Varina, Draft Line offers several brews on tap including a Pale Ale, Porter, Scottish Ale, IPA, Wheat and Pilsner. In addition, they produce a small batch beer every Tuesday that features a unique flavor or style of beer.
The atmosphere at Draft Line is laid back and casual. There’s a large garage-style door that allows easy flow from the outdoor patio to the bar area. They feature a wide variety of weekly entertainment, such as live music, food trucks, run club, pig pickins’ and brewery tours, along with many special events regularly. In addition, cornhole and Ping Pong can be played inside the brewery.
Scott Palmieri, an engineer by trade, relocated to Holly Springs in the late ‘90s from Buffalo, New York. Scott Wood, a general contractor and Holly Springs native, built the house that Palmieri purchased. That led to a friendship that has now turned into a joint business venture.
Armed with a do it yourself attitude and a love for craft beer, they decided to go into the brewing business and open Draft Line Brewing in late 2013. The name Draft Line is a reference to the draft lines used in blueprints, which both Palmieri and Wood deal with regularly in their respective fields, and to the lines of people that form around a well crafted draft beer.
