Just wanted to give a huge shout out to the Deep River Brewing Company out of Clayton, NC. I had a few opportunities to speak with Paul Auclair over the phone, and you will not find a nicer guy with more of a commitment to making great beer.
After the second time we talked over the phone, I wanted to recruit the guy! He has so much passion for craft beer it became obvious to me I didn't want this guy as a competitor. I thought either I recruit him, or we lose the entire city of Clayton altogether for sales. He's that great a guy. He's absolutely destined to succeed.
It's my understanding that Paul and Lynn Auclair are working on getting their own 15-bbl system up and running in Clayton, NC. The proposed date is around August of this year, and we're pulling for them.
From the entire Skull Coast family, I want to congratulate them on making this leap. It's no easy task. And, if there is anything we can do to help them in their journey, we're there for them.
Cheers Paul! Keep brewing, Brother.Follow @SKULLCOAST
