Jose Martinez – The Founder of Compass Rose Brewery – is a world traveler and massive beer fan! After drinking beer in countries all over the world Jose wanted to bring the same level of quality and consistency he experienced abroad to the American beer market.
Compass Rose was started in 2015 as the only brewery serving Northeast Raleigh and has quickly emerged as powerhouse producer in the local beer scene, with an impressively huge taproom space and 10bbl brewing system.
With a wide array of beer styles available on draft (and in cans!) Compass Rose has taken home multiple high-level brewing accolades including 1st place in the US Open Beer Championship 2021 for their West Coast IPA ‘Tidal Break’ as well as a 2nd place award for ‘Scott’s View’ Scottish Ale in 2019
