The Branch at Ancillary* Fermentation offers a unique gathering space for all lovers of beer and our friends & neighbors in the Midtown Raleigh community! We offer a variety of beers made using A*F's unique yeast blends in addition to offering guest taps, non-beer, and non-alcoholic offerings. The Branch pays homage to Ancillary*'s original goal of serving unique beer in unexpected places by preserving the feel of the prior banking tenants. Enjoy a relaxed, family-, and dog-friendly atmosphere inside our roomy taproom or outside on our spacious patio & grounds! See below for FAQs and additional information.
