Compass Rose Brewery

Founded in 2015, Compass Rose Brewery is the first brewery in Northeast Raleigh. Our beer ingredients are influenced by the international travels of the owners, at the moment we offer more than 15 different styles with our Award Winning IPA Tidal Break. The 5,500 sq ft taproom features reclaimed wood and industrial design details. The open concept makes the taproom a great place to host events such as business meetings, parties, anniversaries and wedding receptions. Weekly events include Trivia, live music and delicious food from our kitchen, along with games for kids of all ages. You can even bring the dog!

Our Taproom

Our taproom offers over 5,500 square feet of space, with a high ceiling and industrial décor reminiscent of a German beer hall. A mix of long tables and small high tops provides the opportunity to make new friends or catch up with old ones. We currently offer over 10 of our own styles at any given time (with more variety on the way), along with cider and a respectable wine list. We have events every week like Trivia, Sunday Yoga, Cornhole Tournament, Karaoke Night and Live Music on Fridays, and other games, as well as a large projector screen for “the big game” or private presentations. The open concept makes the taproom a great place to host events such as business meetings, parties, anniversaries and wedding receptions. We also have delicious international food from our Compass Rose Kitchen.

We love our local families–kids included!  It is a goal of ours to allow families to enjoy their neighborhood brewery together as a family, and to educate and promote responsible alcohol consumption. However, we ask that all children who visit the brewery be actively supervised and well-behaved while sharing the taproom with other guests. 

NOTE: In an effort to offer compromise for those with kids and those without, our taproom is limited to ages 21+ after 8pm on Fridays and Saturdays.
