CKBC seeks to create what America seems to have lost: a local neighborhood bar in which we strive to know your name and your story. Sit down, relax, and enjoy a beer with new and old friends.

Jeremy has been a homebrewer with his wife Kristen for years in their home in Raleigh, NC. Jeremy decided to put his engineering and brewing experience to the test by opening Copper Kettle Brewing Company in 2011. He has his Ph.D from NC State in material science engineering and has found many similarities between his degree and brewing.

Kristen is responsible for managing the daily operations of the business, along with wearing multiple hats around the brewery as needed. Kristen is a registered nurse for the Children's Hospital Colorado where she works part time as well as a lactation consultant. She'll never turn down a beer if it includes chilling out in her backyard with Jeremy, their dog Charlie and watching her kids play. (Our regulars call her "K1").

He plans on finishing his Cicerone certifications and moving on to The Siebel Institute’s online courses in the never ending quest for more knowledge.

When she's not serving beer and laughing at her own jokes in the taproom, you might find Joy cycling metro area bike routes, browsing the stacks at a local library, or out and about in the neighborhood with her daughter and dog.
