Meet Our Neighbors: Pinetop Distillery

Meet Our Neighbors: Pinetop Distillery

A little over three years ago a group of friends decided to partner together to give Raleigh its own hand-crafted spirit.  From there, Pinetop Distillery was born.  Although Pinetop is small scale, they pack a big punch.  While continuing to work their day jobs, the team has combined their efforts to create hand-crafted spirits that maintain the integrity of the land, celebrate the ingenuity of local farmers, and provide an authentic taste that is true to North Carolina. 

Meet Our Neighbors: Glas

Meet Our Neighbors: Glas

Thirty-four years ago Nate Shaeffer started blowing glass.  When he graduated from college in 1986, he opened up a Neon Shop. What started small, quickly escalated into a huge production. "We did tens of thousands of beer signs and all of the coca-cola signs for a significant part of Europe for years. By 1997 I had twenty four glass blowers." A collapse in the market due to offshore competition forced Nate to take a step back. "It was a good time for me to get out and be with my kids as a stay-at-home dad."  But Nate wasn't done yet. He couldn't stop making things.  What started back as as a small studio in his house, is now an inviting shop right in the heart of Dock 1053 called Glas.  "I may have worn this statement out in the last two years, but I still have my feet on the brakes because we're just reacting to clients coming in."

Best of 2017

Best of 2017

It's been a busy 2017 at Loading Dock Raleigh.  We've seen our community grow and flourish with the help of new members, companies, non-profits and more.  We doubled in size and launched new office space and co-warehousing & fulfillment space.  Exciting new businesses opened at Dock 1053 such as Hummingbird and Whitaker & Atlantic.  Our collaboration with Bee Downtown has expanded to five rooftop hives and produced over 90 pounds of honey.  We've volunteered all over the community, fulfilling our main mission of Doing Others Good.  And we couldn't have done it without a whole bunch of coffee to get us through the workweeks!

Sweet Collaboration with Bee Downtown

Why Coworking?

Why Coworking?

For those who don't know what the hot trend is all about, coworking is a style of work that involves a shared working environment, often a large gathering space with multiple tables, conference rooms, lots and lots of coffee, and more importantly, ideas. Unlike a typical office environment, those "coworking" are usually not employed by the same organization.
