New Albion Brewing Partners with Raleigh Brewing

by Renee on September 2, 2019

As you may have heard, our contract to brew New Albion with Platform Beer in Cleveland, Ohio, has now ended. When I moved to North Carolina in 2018, I began looking for a brewing partner in my new town of Raleigh. I was introduced to Kristie and Patrik Nystedt, who founded Raleigh Brewing in 2013. I admire Kristie as another woman in craft brewing, and was thrilled to learn that Patrik, like Jack, is also a pilot–those commonalities along with the wonderful beers I tasted in their taproom, forged a new partnership. I’m excited to announce they will be brewing New Albion Pale Ale very soon! Stay tuned for further details on the release date and some exciting news about a special event around that release!

While life has brought me back to Ohio in 2019, I am once again looking for a new brewing partner in my hometown of Cleveland. I enjoy the stewardship of keeping the history of my father’s original craft beer alive, and finding ways to make it available for others to taste and enjoy and appreciate. I’ll keep you posted on my progress.

Meanwhile, craft beer continues to grow, as the latest numbers from the Brewers Association show. The retail dollar sales of craft increased in 2018, from 7%, up to $27.6 billion, and now accounts for more than 24% of the $114.2 billion of the U.S. beer market.

Cheers to craft beer history, and its future!
