About Crank Arm Brewing Company

We started with the dream of combining our two passions: bikes and beer. We finally made that dream a reality when we opened our doors in July of 2013 in the heart of the warehouse district in downtown Raleigh, NC. 
The idea for the brewery came from Adam in 2012; he loves cycling and saw the need for more quality craft beer in downtown Raleigh. The founders, Adam, Craig, and Mike, combined their varying talents to create Crank Arm with the goal of making Raleigh an even better place with even better beer. 

They began work on the brewery in January of 2013 and officially opened to the public six months later in July. After finding the space and purchasing the brewing equipment, our awesome Kickstarter supporters helped us finish out the space by providing the unique design elements found inside the brewery.
