Welcome to
Ancillary* Fermentation

Ancillary* Fermentation started in 2018 as a pop-up party experience centered on the idea that beer should be more experimental, more experiential, and way more fun. The wild beer release parties built a brand that gained immediate national attention and recognition, as A*F landed in the top ten at #9 in 2019 in the USA Today Best New Brewery in America poll.  Along came the pandemic, and away went the pop-up beer release parties.  Once it was deemed safe, Ancillary* opened the lounge in Midtown Raleigh where neighbors and friends can enjoy new beer releases and some classic dive bar favorites in a friendly, non-pretentious hangout.
