Brew Newz ~ D9 Brewing Co. Expands Again
The D9 Brewing Company located at 11138 Treynorth Dr in Cornelius, North Carolina is no stranger to change. Founders Aaron Burton, John Ashcroft, and Andrew Durstewitz started home brewing in a garage. Needless to say, the trio quickly became neighborhood favorites for all sorts of parties and events. Fortunately for us word of their brews spread beyond the cul-de-sac leading to their launching the D9 Brewing Company in 2013.
Since opening their doors to the public, the success of D9 has been nothing short of amazing and has resulted in one relocation and another expansion. Their first upgrade occurred in 2014 when they moved to their current site just off of Old Statesville Road in Cornelius. In 2016 D9 once again started the expansion process and now occupies the entire 10,000 sq ft. office park building they settled in in 2014.
What started as three friends brewing up some Fanatical Ales in their garage has become a shining example of the growth and popularity of the local craft beer business in North Carolina.
D9 officially opened its new 2,100 sq. ft. taproom in mid-October 2016 with some final touches still underway. We stopped in to check it out.
