Starpoint Brewing was founded in 2012 by Beth Boylan and Tim Harper as a labor of love for hoppy beers. After visiting California in 2006 where we discovered west coast IPAs Tim started experimenting with his home brews to replicate the style. After a few years he was able to consistently brew top-notch west coast IPAs using the limited ingredient supplies available in NC at the time.
In 2011 we founded Starpoint Brewing, LLC and built a dedicated garage-style building after getting zoning approval from Carrboro to start producing beer commercially. In mid 2012 all federal and state permits and licensing were finalized and we started self-distributing our beer to the local markets of Carrboro, Chapel Hill, Hillsborough, Pittsboro and a few places in Durham. At that time we were the 62nd brewery permit issued in the state of NC. Today, there are well over 250.
In 2016 we started working on an expansion plan and built a 7 barrel facility in the Rockwood Center of Durham NC, 2501 University Drive, to try to keep up with the demand for our products. This new location was a great opportunity for us since we were operating in a co-located space with Beer Study’s new location. After approval from the NC ABC Commission this new brewery plant became operational in January 2017.
Thank you for all of your support and encouragement over the years! We promise to do our best to continue to brew the freshest ales and lagers available! Cheers! Show Less
