About Bright Penny Brewing


Located in the historic Rice Flour and Feed Mill building and beside the White Furniture Lofts, Bright Penny is an anchor location for downtown. As Mebane's first brewery to open, we aimed to hit the ground running with a large number of exceptional beers. Our goal was to provide a variety of craft beers, a family friendly taproom environment, and all with exceptional customer service. 


In 2016, three friends sat down over a beer and began the plans for Bright Penny Brewing. After looking at several cities in the RTP and Piedmont area of North Carolina, Mebane quickly rose to the top of the list of locations as being one of the fastest growing municipalities in North Carolina. In 2017, downtown Mebane was named a Top 5 Great Place in NC. The outpouring of support from the community has been overwhelmingly positive which confirmed our choice in coming to Mebane.
