Clouds Brewing was built in the summer of 2014 with the idea of being a technologically advanced bar that caters to the crowds of downtown Raleigh. As businesses continue to evolve and change in Raleigh, we wanted to bring that feeling to the local restaurant scene by offering items that no one else does. The self-serve beer wall, The Downpour, allow patrons to sample, select, and pour their own beer. We are importing beers from both Europe and across America to supplement our soon to be released beer line. A collaborative effort of Matt MacNeil and Adam Hoffman, the goals of the company are simple: Great Beer,
Great Food, and Great Service.
Located in the Historic CP&L Garage, the space has been renovated to bring back the industrial feel that the Powerhouse Square District deserves. With garage doors that connect the patio to the restaurant, exposed columns, and I-beams, as well as a custom concrete bar with reclaimed wood accents, we’ve blended the modern with the historic. The industrial atmosphere has been infused with technology wherever possible. Wi-Fi tablets for tableside service, LED lighting, and of course The Downpour (our self-serve beer wall), all come together to create a space that feels both raw and unfinished, yet modern and functional. Come enjoy a drink with friends, cheer your favorite team to victory, or host a company event.
A bar and restaurant focused on craft beer, Clouds Brewing is home to The Downpour; using RFID technology you can start a tab and pour your own beer. And the best part is you pay by the ounce, not by the pint! Feel free to try a small taste of each beer, or a pint of your favorite—the choice is yours. With 10 rotating taps there is always something new to try, and with no need to buy whole pints, you can try them all! So seriously, come on down, grab a glass, and “Experience the Downpour!”
Our bar features 40 beers on draft with 10 of those located on The Downpour. We also offer a large selection of canned and bottled beer, ciders and mead, along with wine and liquor.
