We are working hard to bring you the 7th annual Casktoberfest! A celebration of old world traditions with a Big Boss twist. We transform the brewery into a giant beer hall with North Carolina’s largest selection of cask ale. Variations on our core beer line up plus traditional cask conditioned ales will be offered. Several guest beers will be announced as they are confirmed.


Big Boss Brewing receives proclamation for Casktoberfest 2017!

What you need to know –

We open the brewery doors at 5pm!
30+ one of a kind cask ales confirmed!

There are no tickets required to get in! This is a pay as you go event. Cash will make lines go quicker!

Yes! You may bring your Casktoberfest mug from year’s past!

Parking is tight here in the warehouse area of Raleigh. Making it worse that usual is a construction project at the corner of Laurelbrook and Hodges. That means you will not be able to enter this area from Capital Boulevard!

Please be mindful of our local businesses and not block their entrances.

Car-pooling is a great idea!

Dirndls & lederhosen is a festive way to celebrate!
