After much anticipation, Durham's first Black-owned brewery opened on South Driver Street in late 2023. Proximity's owner, Mike Potter, has made a name for himself in Durham by organizing and hosting Blacktoberfest, an annual festival celebrating beer, barbecue, music, entertainment and culture. At the brewery, you'll find a range of beers with a focus on IPAs, plus collaborations with other local companies.

The vibe, the whole set up black on black invites a chill ambience, with the smooth tracks playing in the background...The 3 big screens make this a very serous place to lounge and chill...And the brew selection is absolutely amazing...Oh and the Courtyard! Man this spot is amazing....

Really cool space with a big bar in the front and lounge area in the back, not to mention outdoor seating when the weather permits. Great vibe with good music playing inside. The Within Proximity west coast IPA I tried was really tasty. Excited to try all of their offerings.
