White Street Brewing Co. is the first manufacturer to bring the robust flavor and variety of craft beer to Wake Forest. Our quality and commitment are equal to the big brewers, but with us you get small-town charm combined with an "everybody knows your name" atmosphere. Our historic downtown location is a gathering place for beer enthusiasts and novices alike. Come into our brewery and witness small-batch beer production at its best. Our on-site taproom has a seat waiting for you and a pint or growler ready to pour.
We're always creating and tinkering with recipes and there's always something new brewing at White Street for you to enjoy in your favorite eating & drinking establishments, in our taproom or to take home.
Three types of White Street Brewing Co. craft beers will be brewed and sold within our facility and beyond. Can't decide which beer is the tastiest? Order a flight from our on-site taproom and enjoy several.
1. Standard beers
These are our standard brews. You can find them being served in the tap room pretty much all the time.
The White Street Kolsch-style Ale pours an old-gold with a fine, white head. A subtle fruitiness aroma extends to the palate with hints of pear and melon. Crisp and refreshing.
5.2% ABV, 23 IBUs
Pouring a deep mahogany, White Street Scottish Ale produces a tight tan head that gives way to a complex maltiness. Herbal and spicy notes play nicely in a caramel essence to produce a beautifully sessionable beer.
5.5% ABV, 22 IBUs
White Street's Hoptimist IPA is a hop showcase that spares no expense to impart a positive outlook to the most discerning hop heads. This glass-half-full IPA has notes of pungent citrus and earthy resins with an uplifting malt balance.
7.5% ABV, 65 IBUs
Your tastes may change with the seasons and so will at least one of our craft beers.
The White Street Stout is brewed to the UK export style. Notes of mocha, light smokiness, and a creamy mouthfeel round out this heavily roasted brew. The perfect choice for the winter months.
6.5% ABC, 35 IBUs
Black Falls is our spring seasonal Black IPA. Deeply opaque with ruby hues, this brew features rich chocolate flavors and aromas accompanied by a huge load of fresh fruity hops. The dark malts of winter meet the citrus hops of summer; this is a marriage of beer's most flavorful components in beautiful balance.
7.0% ABC, 52 IBUs
3. Limited Editions
Whether the result of a tasty experiment or a serendipitous "Ooops!", these are one-time beers available for a limited time only. When they're gone, they're gone!
The White Street Belgian Blonde is a light Belgian ale with a crisp body and delicate white fruit and spice notes from Trappist yeast.
6.2% ABV, 18 IBUs
The White Street Belgian Dubbel has a malt forward Belgian ale with an amber hue. Dark candi syrup adds notes of dark fruit and molasses alongside the spicy Trappist yeast.
Take it Home in a Growler
The same craft beer you enjoy in our tap room can be taken home in a 64-ounce White Street Brewing Co. growler. There's no better way to enjoy it straight from the factory.
In the days before bottled beer became common (mid-1800s), if you wanted a beer outside of a saloon, it most likely was draught beer filled and carried out in a growler--which back then looked like a bucket. Origins of the word growler is much disputed, but it's said that the constant conflict between bartenders who traditionally filled the two-quart pail with a pint of beer and the customer who wanted it filled to the top caused the "growling". Today's White Street Brewing Co. growlers are a half-gallon, brown glass bottle with a secure lid. Get one and extend the White Street Brewing Co. craft beer experience into your own kitchen, living room or backyard.
