I heard this past weekend that Craggie Brewing Company, as it is formed right now, will soon cease functioning. The head brewer has joined up with Oskar Blues to work in their North Carolina facility, which is great news of course. But this means Craggie will be going in a new direction, it would appear.
A shame. I know this place was a bit polarizing for some on here, but their vibe was stellar. Their Mango IPA was good and the Toubab Brew and Swannanoa Sunset were worth the trip. Never like seeing this. I am just glad Green Man and Wedge are still kicking it hard.
As a commenter said, “These things happen. Brewers move around. Craggie will persevere.” Post here.
Speaking of Oskar Blues, two longtime local brewers are now working for the Brevard brewery. John Silver of French Broad Brewing and formerly of Pisgah Brewing, and DJ McCready of Craggie Brewing will spend a few weeks training out in Colorado, before coming back and helping North Carolina Oskar Blues head brewer Noah Tuttle do his thing in Brevard. Congrats to all. Sounds like a solid brew team.
