Today we are drinking and reviewing the House of Clay IPA out of the new Raleigh Brewing Company in Raleigh. Raleigh Brewing says that the House of Clay IPA is a “tribute to the original buildings of Raleigh’s own Shaw University, built with red clay bricks that students made by hand. Our handcrafted House of Clay IPA is robust as they come. Four different hops are front and center with the rye bringing it all home in a clean, slightly spicy finish. Dry hopped for 5 days for a nice hoppy nose. 7.5% ABV.” As Kristie Nystedt is the majority owner in Raleigh Brewing Company it makes them the first female owned brewery in North Carolina.
