Cary, NC – Sean Pratt of Cary, graduated from Cary High School in 2002 and then went to NCSU, graduating in 2007. While studying in Sweden he fell in love with craft and specialty beers. He partnered up with Johnny Belflower (Rocky Mount Senior High School and Full Sail University in Winter Park, Florida).
After years of planning they have opened a new shop called Tasty Beverage Company at 327 W. Davie St. Suite 106, in Raleigh in the historic Warehouse District of Downtown Raleigh.
“We opened the kind of place we always wanted to buy beer in,” Sean Pratt told CaryCitizen.
On Monday, August 22, they kicked off their new venture with a beer tasting. Several breweries were on hand providing samples of suds including Great Divide, Left Hand, Duck Rabbit, Stone, Schmaltz, Allagash, Anderson Valley, Uinta and Terrapin. Over 400 people were in attendance.
Tasty Beverage boasts nearly 500 different brews.
Good luck guys!
