Bull Durham Brewing sold, will stay at DBAP
The first brewery in America to operate in a Minor League baseball stadium, Bull Durham Beer Co., owned by WRAL and Durham Bulls parent company Capitol Broadcasting, has been sold.
R&D Brewing Company based in Raleigh purchased Bull Durham Beer Co. for an undisclosed amount.
Operations will be unchanged at Durham Bulls Athletic Park, and will be overseen by head brewer Tate Little.
“There are few breweries in this country with as unique of a setting and history attached to them as Bull Durham Beer,” says John Glover, R&D Brewing. “We see a tremendous opportunity to take this iconic brand and combine it with our brewing industry expertise to make Bull Durham Beer a household name for craft brew.”
“Our family has had a long relationship with John and his team and we’re confident that the vision he has for Bull Durham Beer will take this brand to new heights,” says Michael Goodmon, senior vice president, CBC. “I can’t wait to see Bull Durham Beer in the hands of thirsty baseball fans coast to coast.”
