Compass Rose Brewery, Raleigh

In this new NCBeerBuzz episode we visit with Thomas Vincent of the new Compass Rose Brewery located at 3201 Northside Drive in Raleigh – just north of I-540 off Capital Blvd and Gresham Lake Road. Thomas is the head brewer and one of the four owners at Compass Rose along with John Coulter, Jose Luis Martinez and Gary Kohake. Our viewers and craft beer locals might know Thomas from his former stints as brewer at Natty Greene’s or Big Boss. Two of the other owners at Compass also own a brewery in Mexico. Compass Rose features a beautiful and very spacious taproom with lots of reclaimed wood and an industrial beer hall design feel. They aren’t brewing yet on premises but that should change any day now and so for now they have a great selection of local and guest taps available in the taproom!
