Gizmo Brew Works

Gizmo Brew Works Deep in the Umstead Industrial Park, something stirs. Amid the clank of modern machinery, a group of workers busy themselves with one of the world's oldest crafts: brewing. At Gizmo Brew Works, this meeting of contemporary technology and ancient know-how produces a tempting slate of small-batch beers. Inside tanks that hold the equivalent of 1,000 pints each, brewers prep year-round favorites including the session-ready Raleigh Red Amber Ale and the complex Dark Construct Stout with the same care that earned them medals at the 2012 and 2013 Carolina Championship of Beer. They also save room for seasonals, carefully adding orange blossom honey to summer's Gizmo Honey Wheat and recreating the tastes of the season with fall's Forgotten Hollow Cinnamon Porter. These beers and more make frequent appearances in the brewery's taproom, gracing pint glasses for impromptu toasts or filling up growlers for at-home sips. Never ones to shy away from curious guests, brewers also open up their facility for Saturday tours, walking groups through the beer-making process during 30-minute explorations.
