 Double Barley Brewing began when Cheryl gave Larry a simple homebrew kit for his 40th birthday gift. Six months later, Larry stumbled upon the kit in the attic and you can guess the rest of the story. Who knew it? Larry could brew great beer and Cheryl was pretty good at sampling. Life was about to change forever.

Over the next five years, dining rooms, guest rooms, and garages were transformed into the early stages of Double Barley Brewing. Picture Larry and buddies brewing in the driveway while Cheryl tried to keep the kids in check and entertain the constant stream of volunteer samplers. Needless to say, the Lane home was the hot spot to hang out in the neighborhood!

Larry and Cheryl have always wanted to own their own business and all it took was one simple birthday present (and Larry turning 40), to make their dream a reality. Although it’s been a lot of work creating a detailed business plan, fine tuning dozens of recipes, finding the perfect location in Smithfield, N.C. and designing an awesome taproom and beer garden, it’s also been a labor of love – a love for craft beer, the community and a desire to bring them together.
