Wake Forest, N.C. — Norse Brewing Company's brewmaster Brad Wynn used the time the brewery was closed due the coronavirus to create a batch of 10 original beers for the Wake Forest brewery.
"I did a tart with hibiscus. I've got a beautiful stout. I've got pale ale. We have a West Coast IPA," Wynn said. "We've got a bunch of different choices."
The brewery opened at 203 Brooks St. in December and was off to a great start until coronavirus closed its doors. The brewery reopened on Friday with restrictions of only 50 percent capacity inside. To add more seating, the brewery added a large tent outside.
"We do have pretty significant outdoor seating as part of the building itself, which we are utilizing as well, a nice big deck, a 600 square-foot deck in the back," owner Chris Jorgensen said.
Norse is also serving up its Southern influenced Scandinavian menu.
