Primal Brewery in the beautiful venue for this NCBeerBuzz episode when we visit the new brewery which opened its doors to customers in a beautifully renovated location at 16432 Old Statesville Road in Huntersville last December. Primal was the first craft brewery to be located in Huntersville and joins other new breweries in expanding the marketplace north of Charlotte. Co-founders Ray Steimel and David Hoy grew this brewery out of a friendship over soccer fields and homebrew parties. These guys says they had so much fun with friends and family over homebrew that they began to wonder if there might be a way to expand the circle. They chose a highly visible location that is sure to attract some of the 30,000 cars that pass by their front door daily. The tap room is beautiful, with a homey feel of soft lighting and a massive stone fireplace that will certainly become a local gathering spot!
