Owners

Scott Palmieri,
Scott Wood (L-R)

Draft Line Brewing Co.

Scott Palmieri and Scott Wood, owners of Draft Line Brewing, officially opened their doors in June of 2014. Located in a renovated warehouse in Historic downtown Fuquay-Varina, Draft Line offers several brews on tap including a Pale Ale, Porter, Scottish Ale, IPA, Wheat and Pilsner. In addition, they produce a small batch beer every Tuesday that features a unique flavor or style of beer.

The atmosphere at Draft Line is laid back and casual. There’s a large garage-style door that allows easy flow from the outdoor patio to the bar area. They feature a wide variety of weekly entertainment, such as live music, food trucks, run club, pig pickins’ and brewery tours, along with many special events regularly. In addition, cornhole and Ping Pong can be played inside the brewery.

Scott Palmieri, an engineer by trade, relocated to Holly Springs in the late ‘90s from Buffalo, New York. Scott Wood, a general contractor and Holly Springs native, built the house that Palmieri purchased. That led to a friendship that has now turned into a joint business venture.

Armed with a do it yourself attitude and a love for craft beer, they decided to go into the brewing business and open Draft Line Brewing in late 2013. The name Draft Line is a reference to the draft lines used in blueprints, which both Palmieri and Wood deal with regularly in their respective fields, and to the lines of people that form around a well crafted draft beer.

They have since perfected their own high-tech brewing system that allows brewing of up to 30 barrels (930 gallons) of beer at once. The automation equipment, which the Scotts designed and built by hand, allows precise control over both the brewing and fermentation process, while providing a system that they are able to modify and scale in-house.

Since their recent signing with distribution through Mutual Distributing Company of Raleigh, Draft Line Brewing is on their way to be a big player in the local markets. Maybe it’s that undefinable chemistry the Draft Line team shares — like when a band finds that magic sound people can’t get enough of. Maybe it’s their love of brewing or their knowledge of the craft. Whatever it is, it’s working. And with two award winning beers under their belt already, the critics seem to agree!

The Beer

Check Out Our Weekly Limited Releases

Availability: Year Round
ABV: 5.3%

Graf Pale Ale

This light golden colored American Pale Ale brings the tropical fruit flavors of Australian and New Zealand Hops together with American malts. Crisp yet refreshing, tropical fruit flavors and aromas are showcased in this pale ale. These “down unda” hops are backed by American two-row malted barley and Caramel Malts creating a truly balanced “Kiwi Style” Pale Ale.

Wilbon American Wheat Ale

Soft and smooth, this American Wheat Ale has a lot to offer for those looking for a lightly hopped beer. Like a cloudy day it offers respite from the heat of the day with its blend of Wheat and Two-Row American Barley. Lightly colored and unfiltered, hints of bitter and sweet orange peel meld with spicy hops to create the perfect light beer for sitting on the porch, by the pool or just watching the pale waves of grain blow in the wind.

Availability: Year Round
ABV: 7.5%

RiverSteam Scotch Ale

This Strong Scotch Ale, also known as a “Wee Heavy”, is one of our favorite brews. RiverSteam Scotch combines rich malty sweetness from the finest Malts of the UK along with “Earthy Aroma” hops. This medium bodied beer goes down easy and leaves no room for doubt. So go ahead and take a Steam down the River and see where it leads you.

Deep Plunge Porter

Dark, rich and velvety smooth this English Style porter will take you to new depths of flavor. Black Barley, Chocolate, and Caramel Malts mix with English Barley for a complex full bodied ale that is to be slowly savored while you fathom the depths of whatever subject you want.

Availability: Year Round
ABV: 5.1%

Hemmings Pilsner

This “Bavarian Style” Pilsner is refreshing and full flavored. German malted barley gives this Lager a delicious bread like note, delicately balanced with spicy and floral hop aromas. This thirst quenching Lager is dry and crisp yet well rounded, much like Hemming’s monocycle.

Availability: Year Round
ABV: 6.6%

SinglePath IPA

To say we are hop heads here at Draft Line is an understatement. We constantly ride down the narrow trail of beer making oblivious to anything else except what the next beer will taste like. SinglePath IPA is bursting with hoppy flavors and aromas. We combine four different hops in six different additions for this beer creating a banquet of citrus, piney and floral flavors for the palate. Then we dry hop the beer with another huge dose of hops creating a bouquet that is complex and balanced – creating a 2-Wheeled Iron Horse of an IPA that will take you down that singular path to Hop-Topia!

DLB-Beer-Seasonal-Oktoberfest-01

Availability: Seasonal
ABV: 6.4%

Märzen Oktoberfest

A “Märzen” is a traditional Oktoberfest beer. The name derives from a time when the brewing season’s last beers were made in spring (Märzen is from the German word for March) and stored until fall, which coincided with the famous October festival in Munich–Oktoberfest. This deep red amber lager is coupled with a malty aroma with a hint of toasted bread–true Oktoberfest Bliss.

DLB-Beer-Seasonal-RyeBock-01

Availability: Seasonal
ABV: 6.2%

Red Baron Rye Bock

This traditional German Style Rye Lager blends rich German malts with spicy winter Rye resulting in a skilled display of flavor that is hard to beat. Coupled with soft floral hops this red beer will have you barnstorming to the bar to order another. So order up a Red Baron before it flies off into the sunset.

DLB-Beer-Seasonal-ViennaLager

Availability: Seasonal
ABV: 7.4%

Vienna Lager

This Austrian amber lager blends Vienna and Munich malts backed by delicate spicy German hops and German lager yeast. This rich symphony of flavor is slightly creamy to the palate, yet surprisingly light and smooth drinking. Perfect for cooling off after a hard day at work, or a hike up the Rainerhorn.
