We had the chance recently to visit with some of the Dirtbag Ales team for this new NCBeerBuzz episode! Dirtbag Ales is located in Hope Mills, just outside of Fayetteville. Relatively new to the craft beer scene in North Carolina, they have had their products out in the marketplace for awhile and plan to open their taproom very soon – probably by the time you see this! Several years ago, Tito, one of the founders and brewmaster, traded the promise of free beer for life, for a friend’s home brew kit. That was the moment when a foodie started the not-so-long path to becoming a brewer and you might guess the rest of the story. The combined crew calls themselves “dirtbags”, “not that we are bad people, but that real innovators and pioneers don’t follow a rule book, and doing what’s right often requires not conforming to conventional wisdom.” Dirtbag Ales : For the refined taste of the common man!
