Standard Beer + Food Brings Culinary Excellence to NHID

Kane Realty Corporation is excited to announce that Standard Beer + Food, a locally-owned and operated restaurant in Raleigh, will be opening in the North Hills Innovation District (NHID). Standard will occupy one of the two standalone food and beverage buildings with large dedicated outdoor dining space. The new restaurant will feature an interior of 5,600 SF and more than 15,000 SF of outdoor gathering space – the most of any other North Hills space to date.

“We are absolutely thrilled to have Standard join the North Hills Innovation District,” said Stacey Buescher, Managing Director of Operations for Kane Realty Corporation. “Local businesses are the backbone of thriving communities, and Standard’s presence will undoubtedly infuse NHID with a vibrant energy. We believe in fostering a community that values innovation, local flavor, and collaboration, and Standard exemplifies these ideals. Their commitment to sourcing locally and creating a unique beer and food experience aligns seamlessly with the vision we have for NHID as a dynamic hub where technology, life sciences, and entrepreneurship converge. We look forward to the positive impact Standard will make in enhancing the overall experience for everyone who visits NHID.”

Standard Beer + Food, a charming neighborhood restaurant, is the brainchild of local entrepreneurs Cov DeRamus, John Holmes, and Blake Thompson. Committed to delivering an unparalleled beer and food experience, Standard takes pride in its locally sourced menu meticulously curated to harmonize with their signature brews. The essence of collaboration with the local community is integral to their mission, evident in their partnerships with Raleigh City Farms, Joyce Farms, and Fox Farm & Forage for ingredient sourcing. Their commitment extends to collaborations with esteemed local entities such as High Wire Distilling, Cellarest, and Neuse River Brewing, contributing to the creation of a truly unique and immersive culinary journey.

“We are excited to bring the essence of Standard to a new community as we open our second location in the vibrant North Hills,” said Cov DeRamus, Owner of Standard Beer + Food. “NHID embodies the spirit of innovation and community, aligning perfectly with our commitment to providing a unique beer and food experience. We look forward to becoming an integral part of the North Hills landscape, fostering connections, and creating memorable moments for our guests. This expansion marks a new chapter for Standard, and we are eager to contribute to the rich tapestry of culinary excellence in this dynamic neighborhood.”
