— The former 7Up bottling plant at 726 Rigsbee Avenue in Durham will soon be turning out beverages of a different sort.

Fullsteam Brewery expects to open a brewing, kegging and canning operation coupled with a tavern at that location by the end of the year. The tavern will serve the company’s core beers, seasonal releases and guest taps from other North Carolina breweries.

“Basically, we’ve discovered the perfect site for our brewery,” Fullsteam Founder Sean Lilly Wilson said.
