SMITHFIELD — Double Barley Brewing has partnered with the Triangle East Center Food Hall to open the North Carolina Craft House at the Old North State Food Hall.

The North Carolina Craft House will be a 3,100 square-foot, full service-bar featuring North Carolina craft beer, cider, wine and spirits. The N.C. Craft House and Old North State Food Hall will be new additions to the redevelopment of the JR’s building off Interstate 95’s Exit 97. Selma-based AdVenture Development is developing the Triangle East Center complex.

“This has long been a dream of ours. We are thrilled to be able to feature and promote the amazing craft beer, cider, wine and spirits produced throughout our great state” said Cheryl Lane, co-owner of Double Barley Brewing. “Featuring North Carolina’s best breweries, cideries, wineries and distilleries, the N.C. Craft House will offer both on- and off-premise sales along with branded merchandise seven days a week.”

“As North Carolina natives and brewery owners, we are excited that we will now have a venue to promote N.C. brands in a location with national exposure,” said Larry Lane, co-owner of Double Barley Brewing.

The business is scheduled to open in 2020 and exterior renovations of the building are already underway, managed by Stephenson General Contractors. Design of the food hall is being completed by Philadelphia-based Ed Eimer Design Studios and local architect Ron Webb Architecture of Greenville.

Double Barley Brewing, located at 3174 U.S. 70 W. in Smithfield, opened in 2013.
