About Us

Harlem Beer Distributing


At Harlem Beer Distributing, one taste does not fit all. We seek to bring extraordinary beers with empowering stories directly to those who want it.  We’re dedicated to offering great beverages that reflect the flavor and uniqueness of the craft and communities that inspire them.  

Our story began more than 20 years ago, when word spread about a beer from Harlem. Starting with small batch home brews, our flagship Harlem Sugar Hill Golden Ale and Harlem Renaissance Wit were instant hits! From its launch at the Studio Museum in Harlem and early partnerships with Sylvia’s Restaurant and the Apollo Theater, Harlem Brewing has always brewed it forward, supporting countless charities and community organizations. Over the years, calls and IGs from beer lovers across the country and around the world poured in asking where they could find the beers. Yet few distributors understood the craft beer revolution or how to cultivate the diverse consumer market.

These days, commercials aren’t driving brand awareness, grassroots marketing and social media are. We're proud of the many long standing partnerships that helped sustain our growth both online or on-premise. Over the years, many independent craft beverage suppliers called for advice on how to brew, register, distribute and market their brands. Harlem Beer Distributing and our team of experts in manufacturing, distribution, sales and marketing was the answer. We offer competitive prices, great values, and consistent inventory. We strive to compete favorably and professionally and pride ourselves on continuous growth and excellent service!


Harlem Brew South


Craft Beers

Harlem Sugar Hill Ale


Named for the neighborhood immortalized by musicians during the Harlem Renaissance. Sugar Hill Golden Ale offers an unusually rich, smooth character, well-balanced taste    and uncompromised artisanal quality.   This medium body, golden pale ale is known for its drinkability and has a subtle citrus accent with a light  finish of hops and malt flavor. ABV 5.4%  IBU 35   SRM

Harlem Renaissance Wit


The Renaissance Wit is a refreshing and tasty Belgian style wheat ale brewed with spices.

Lightly hopped with rich coriander, cumin, grains of paradise and orange peel for a mellow finish. 

ABV 5.8   

IBU 20


GRAINS 2-Row, Victory, Wheat


Harlem 125 IPA

 STYLE American IPA

ABV 7%

IBU 66


GRAINS Pale, Crystal 60

HOPS Citra and Cascade

Strawberry Hard Cider



Semi-sweet with rich layers of flavor and natural fruit astringency, a complement to the fines cuisines. Strawberry  infused cider with a classic blend of New York apples. Enjoy Strawberry Hill forever! Abv 5.7%

Harlem Renaissance Wit glass

 Nucleated Pint Glass with HB láser etching inside bottom of glass.
The HB laser etched “nucleated” glass provides a great sensory experience. When beer is poured onto the etched bottom, this creates more bubbles that  last longer and therefore produces a more stable head.

Dirt Bag Brewery



Dirtbag Ales is proud to present an innovative approach to a time honored brew. “The Kölsch” pairs the finest ingredients with traditional brewing techniques and our own Dirtbag spin to bring to life and body to a refreshing, citrus infused masterpiece. The Blood Orange Kölsch starts with a pronounced citrus note provided by blood oranges that finishes with a hint of raspberry. A perfect balance of hops and malt that is assertive, but not overpowering, great for enjoying by itself or with a meal.



We use locally roasted coffee beans, from Cumberland Coffee Roasters, to cold brew coffee over 24 hours. Coffee that tastes the way it smells; roasted velvet sweetness without a harsh bite, combines with our Porter to bring a decadent rich flavor that’s smoothly rounded with a healthy dosage of lactose. This brew started as a special cask offering of our Porter and quickly gained its own notoriety, for good reason.



 A Black IPA made with Ahtanum & Mosaic hops featuring locally roasted coffee 58 IBU and 7.4% ABV



A smash is a unique brewing style in which a single hop and a single malt are utilized. The Weiner Smash is light straw to pale golden in color with a crisp, light body with a slight punch coming in at 6%. With a hint of spices from the Belgian yeast and brewed with Vienna malts this easy drinking ale is a favorite of light beer enthusiasts and people just venturing into the craft beer scene.



We have taken two renowned American hops and paired them to create a fresh take on the American India Pale Ale:  Cascade and Centennial.  Both hops are continuously added throughout the boil bring a balanced hop profile that is combined with a smooth malt background.  This beer is hoppy enough for the hophead, yet refined enough for the casual drinker.

Oui Oui Saison


"Oui Oui Saison" This French style saison is a crowd favorite. Brewed with granny smith apples and fresh local rosemary, subtle and balanced farmhouse spice. 8.4 %ABC



Bon Chans or “Good Luck” Saison; Its name alludes to the Haitian god of agriculture from which the Azacca Hops used to brew this Saison get their name. Our grain is a fifty-fifty split of crisp pilsner malt and red wheat malt to give it a clean finish with a full mouthfeel. During the boil we add Styrian Golding and Sorachi Ace hops to enhance the spicy, pepper- like character of the yeast used during fermentation.  



Homecoming pilsner, is our take on a pilsner made using only North Carolina Sourced ingredients. Hops grown in Pittsboro, Malt sourced from Epiphany craft malting in Durham, and yeast from White labs in Asheville. Brewed in collaboration with Fayetteville visitors center and in honor of Veterans.
