restaurant × bar × taproom


An american-style restaurant & brewery with german flair,  clouds brewing is home to the downpour.

We've got 40+ rotating taps with local & craft beer, including our own german-inspired brews.


Clouds Brewing opened its doors in August of 2014 in Raleigh, NC, bringing the Downpour Wall dream to fruition.  Each month the Downpour Wall showcases a different brewery, over ten self-serve taps. RFID technology allows you to control your own tab by paying by the ounce, so you can sample at your heart's content or get a growler of your favorite to go.

In spring of 2016, we established our brewery & Clouds beers began to pour. From seasonal releases to our year round varieties, Clouds beer keeps its German-inspired roots. You can check out our Raleigh taproom for tastings + events. 

After two years, we couldn't wait to expand our love for food & drink to a city that knows it well. Our Durham location opened in Fall of 2016, with more menu items, more taps, & more space for outings big and small.
