Who Is Lonerider Brewing?
Our philosophy is: Affect Change, don’t be an audience. Walk your own path, and instead of thinking outside the box, imagine what if there was no box. We invite you to Ride for the Brand and are looking forward to having you as part of our Outlaw Team. Lonerider has established itself as one of the leading NC craft brands over the last ten years and continues to grow. We believe that our people are as important as the beer that we create. We look for Outlaws, out of the box thinkers, that not only can execute on the tasks in front of them but also help the brewery look forward to what’s next and new ways to bring our brand to market. Whether you buy our product in stores or visit one of our Hideout locations, the spirit of the Outlaw is embodied in everything we do. We have always been proud of our commitment to the community, whether it’s volunteering time, creating charitable events or simply spending time with those that enjoy our beer and want to engage more with our brand. We believe in having fun, empowering our employees to affect how we run our business.
We’re proud of being from Raleigh, NC and continue to carry that enthusiasm everywhere we go. It’s the Outlaw way.
