Less than a month after Charlotte’s NoDa Brewing Co. announced it would expand distribution in the South Carolina market, two additional North Carolina breweries on Wednesday finalized plans to grow their presence in the state.
Raleigh’s Lonerider Brewing Co. and Carolina Brewery, a restaurant and brewery with locations in Chapel Hill and Pittsboro, both inked deals to bring their beers southward. Lonerider recently began distributing in Georgia but will be a new addition to the Palmetto State. Carolina Brewery already distributes in the Fort Mill/Rock Hill area and around Charleston but will now be expanding into other markets.
Both Lonerider and Carolina will be available in all major markets. As for exactly which brews will be available at launch or a lunch date itself, that’s still unclear.
