Pirate-Themed Brewery Joins Big Boss in Five Points

TBJ has a great article on all of the breweries – from micro/boutique to the original Big Boss – that have setup shop or are coming to the Five Points area soon: http://www.bizjournals.com/triangle/news/2014/10/17/brewery-district-five-points-raleigh-nc.html.

Blackjack, co-owned by Ed Wenda, hopes to open by early December. The pirate-themed brewery is putting up walls in a 10,000 square-foot space, part of a 180,000-square-foot building that belongs to Grubb Ventures. Its head brewer used to work at Abita Brewing Co.

The article closes on a positive note, that many of the breweries are looking forward to local collaboration and that the reception from the local residents is warm.
