Clouds Brewing was built in the summer of 2014 with the idea of being a technologically advanced restaurant and bar that caters to the crowds of downtown Raleigh.  As businesses continue to evolve and change in Raleigh, we wanted to bring that feeling to the local restaurant scene by offering items that no one else does.  The self-serve beer wall, The Downpour, allows patrons to sample, select, and pour their own beer.  We also import beers from both Europe and across America, with an emphasis on celebrating North Carolina beers. The bar features forty beers on draft with ten of those located on The Downpour.  We also offer a large selection of canned and bottled beer, ciders and mead, along with wine and liquor.

A collaborative effort of restaurateur Adam Hoffman and brewer John Oldendorf, the goals of the company are simple: Great Beer, Great Food, and Great Service.

Located in the Historic CP&L Garage, the space was renovated to bring back the industrial feel that the Powerhouse Square District deserves.  With garage doors connecting the patio to the restaurant, exposed columns, and I-beams, as well as a custom concrete bar with reclaimed wood accents, we’ve blended the modern with the historic.  The industrial atmosphere has been infused with technology wherever possible. Wi-Fi tablets for tableside service, LED lighting, and of course The Downpour, all come together to create a space that feels both raw and unfinished, yet modern and functional. 

The company recently opened its brewery located on Front Street, and debuted its first beer in March, 2016. Five different Clouds Brewing beers are currently available at the downtown restaurant, with more styles scheduled to be released throughout 2016.

Clouds Brewing is continuing its expansion with a second restaurant slated to open this summer in Durham’s historic Brightleaf Square.
