Our t-shirt design has been submitted and is currently being printed!!!

We just received our shipment of glassware today and they look great!  I’m actually drinking a pint out of one of our new glasses as I type this…welcome home my precious!  We also had our electrician in today to put together a supply list and go over some final details before we do the work.  […]

Taphandle Prototype and other good stuff!

It has been another productive few days at 5 Paddles!  We got our electrical permit today and we have finalized details for our electrical requirements with Brewmaster Controls and our electrician so we should be able to get moving on that stuff over the Christmas break.  We also have sorted out health code […]

In the middle of another busy week-Check out what our glassware is going to look like!!!

We were able to move our beer fridge into the brewery on the weekend.  We have completed a prototype of our tap handles (pics to come shortly) and our false bottom for our mash tun is now almost complete!  We’re on the hunt for some conical fermenters currently so if you know of any that […]

They say that deep within the brewery, there is a force of darkness.  They say that […]

We Have a Home

After searching high and low all over Durham for a location we finally have a home. We are now in the process of tearing apart what is a pretty crafty space (complete with plaid border) and turning it into the home of Five Paddles Brewing Company.
