It’s been almost a year since the rumors started flying about Natty Greene’s opening in the Powerhouse Building (the former location of Southend Brewery and Prime Only Steakhouse and Sushi Bar).
2009 was a great year for new breweries to open in the Raleigh area. Lonerider Brewing Company, Boylan Bridge Brewpub and Aviator all came out swinging in ‘09 and all seem to be thriving. The competition is becoming stiff but luckily most of the breweries are spread out across the area. This will be the first in the Glenwood area (Boylan is close) since Southend closed years ago. The new energy around local beer could work to Natty Greene’s advantage.
