Priority Draft is North Carolina’s first local, CSA-inspired beer delivery service. Built off of the proven structure of a craft beverage retail store and following in the wake of the craft industry boom, consumers are aware and looking for fresh, innovative means to receive their beverages of choice. Our business, Priority Draft, serves to fill that need by offering a safe & convenient alternative to consuming alcoholic beverages and driving home. Instead of patrons making their way to the nearest bottle shop or grocery store that’ll potentially have the desired product in stock, Priority Draft gives consumers the power to browse a larger, more diverse selection from the comfort of their own homes online, and have it delivered to their doorstep. Our a la carte or subscription delivery services are geared to fit our customer’s busy schedule and will become the top choice for those seeking convenience without having to give up selection. Priority Draft is the ground-breaking option that North Carolina’s beer-forward clientele have been looking for.

Our Story

Priority Draft is the brainchild of local entrepreneur Reece Verburg and if you’ve spent any time in the downtown Fuquay-Varina area, you’ve probably seen him around working at one or another of the local institutions. In high-school, Verburg got his start in small business as one of the first employees for local favorite, Stickboy Bread Co. Under the tutelage of Katie and Josh Dies he learned the struggle and pride of owning a small business and how to create a blossoming communal space that fed back into the community. However, after seven years working for the small company, Verburg was forced to retire his bread baking apron because of a flour-related health issue. But that didn’t halt his commitment to the community.

Captivated by the community behind the local burgeoning craft beer scene here in NC, Verburg decided to expand his horizons and went to work for Fair Game Beverage Company, a local artisan distillery and winery. Once again, the commitment to hard work and a vision that bettered the local community reinforced Verburg’s views on how to impact his surroundings. Though he loved Pittsboro’s quirky local company, it was time to move on and create something that he was proud of.

Thus Priority Draft was born after years of research and industry experience with a commitment to bettering our community and an advocacy towards public safety. From all of us here at Priority Draft, we hope that you’ll join us in raising a glass to our future and your #futurebeer!
