About the brewery

Carolina Brewing Company was the great idea of two brothers, John and Greg Shuck, and a friend, Joe Zonin.

In 2011, after 16 years as head brewer, John Shuck decided to leave CBC. Greg and Joe wanted to ensure that whoever bought his share of the business loved good beer and could work and care for the brewery the way John had. We didn’t have to look far. Mark Heath and Van Smith were long-time fans of CBC and worked as part of the volunteer bottling crew and brewed on occasion. In August 2011, they joined Joe and Greg as partners in CBC. They have added new energy, new ideas and a determination to grow the CBC brand beyond the Triangle. All it took, 3, (now 4) livers and a Dream.
