On Sunday, January 6, just a few steps from your new dream home at Knightdale Station, there will be a “birthday” celebration, commemorating the third year of operation for our neighbors at the Oak City Knightdale Brewery.
On their official website at oakcitybrewingcompany.com, it is recalled that the Oak City Knightdale Brewery originally opened its doors for business on January 2, 2016. Giving a brief background and history, the site tells that, “Long time friends, Blake Cone and Matt Keeler, have had many a beer together as they day dreamed about one day opening a small brewery of their own. Then about three years ago they started taking a deeper dive and working on their business plan, reserved the Oak City Brewing Company name, URL and have never turned back.”
The “trip down memory lane” for the Oak City Knightdale Brewery continues, explaining, “After walking miles looking at dozens of possible locations, reworking budgets for the umpteenth time and brewing beer in their garages they finally found a suitable location in beautiful downtown Knightdale.” The memoir concludes, noting, “In spring of 2015, they took the entrepreneurial plunge, quitting their jobs (both with newborns on the way) and started realizing their dream. ”
The celebration of three years and counting of great times at the Oak City Knightdale Brewery will begin on January 6 at noon and run through 8:00 pm. Scheduled on hand are several food trucks, live music, and of course a lot of fun and some great beverages. In addition, the first 200 customers on hand on Sunday, January 6 will receive a free anniversary glass like the one pictured above.
