760 Craft Works is a family-owned brewery that’s in the final stages of opening and expects to be brewing February of 2023. Our 8,000 square foot taproom & brewing facility is located in downtown Huntersville, NC, a 15-minute drive north of uptown Charlotte, NC and a 10-minute drive from the shores of Lake Norman. Our 1.7-acre property sits right on the Downtown Huntersville Greenway, part of the Carolina Thread Trail.

We are detail-oriented, mechanically inclined owner-operators with a decades-long passion for brewing and a decades-long connection to the local Lake Norman area. We are team players – no one is above any job. Our complementary experience includes leading lean clean-energy tech startup teams and managing 400-employee aluminum can manufacturing facilities producing 5 billion cans per year. We believe businesses, like communities, are defined as much by their people – their attitudes, behaviors, and shared values – as by the products they produce. We are thankful this 5+ years-in-the-making project is on the precipice of opening. We look forward to building a tight knit 760 Craft Works family, fostering an incredibly welcoming workplace culture, and delivering our customers, really our community, an exceptional product & experience.

At 760 we believe that the taproom will be a key part of our success as it will likely be the first experience consumers have with our brand. The Taproom Manager will be responsible for making the taproom experience nothing short of exceptional.
