Down in Cary for a business trip, and our host just took us here on hapenstance cause it's close to his house. Holy Crap - This place rules.

Atmosphere was classy w/out being snobby... high ceilings, dark wood, black leather benches, etc. No smoking that I noticed, but we were here during the dinner hours only.

Service was great - both our waitress, and others chipping in to make sure no one went thirsty or hungry. Only questionable part was my first order - the beer formerly known as Obamagang - waitress showed up with a tasting glass, claiming that "most customers haven't really liked it", so she "wanted to make sure I was ok with it"... I sort of appreciated the candor, but if I worked for Ommegang, I'd be pissed.

I was FLOORED by the number of high quality beers available on tap - several from Ommegang, Allagash, Green Flash, Victory, DF Head, Unibroue, the whole SN lineup... you get the picture.

One very noticeable thing I haven't seen before - every one of the 50-80+ drafts has it's own glass from the brewery - very cool. Even had a North Coast Red Seal, and Green Flash Hop Head Red Ale.

Food was solid - we just went nuts on their appetizer menu, so didn't really try entrees other than fish tacos, but all was above average for bar fare.

Found the pricing to be particularly good - maybe it's just b/c I'm in NC, but to get top notch pints for all around $4-7, and good apps in the $7-10 range was solid.

Hit this place up if you're anywhere near Raleigh/ Cary.

First and only Tyler's Taproom I've been to.

A - Decent atmosphere, feels a little more like a chain that I would like but thats me looking for a criticism. I definitely enjoy my rare visits here. Favorite place to go when visiting the future in-laws. I do love how the dining area has a bar and the billiards area has its own bar. Tons of TVs for sporting events too.

Q - quality always confuses me, I feel like the other categories are quality of atmosphere, quality of service, quality of selection, etc. Is this overall? Overall I definitely endorse Tyler's Taproom!

S - Service is great, I've never had my mind blown but I've always been very satisfied, most servers seem to know a decent bit about most beers, definitely not all beer geeks though - seems like Tyler's may encourage patrons to taste/try multiple beers. Limited knowledge about many beers in general. Prompt friendly service overall.

S - Selection is fantastic - most taps I've ever witnessed at a bar and they have tons of goodies from local duck-rabbits and olde hickorys to ballast points and staples such as multiple founders, victory, dogfish, etc (and not just the year rounds).

F - Fantastic mac n cheese, really enjoy the nachos and the buffalo chicken wrap (which I'm a HUGE sucker for) did not disappoint. I havent had anything less than a 7 out of 10 in my opinion. The menu is huge too!

V - No great deals that I recall but in no way a ripoff. Most of the menu is under $12 and fantastic beers are mostly between $6-8 (maybe less). It's appropriately priced in my opinion!

A hop heads review....

Let me great straight to the point. Tyler's rocks! This place has an amazing tap list. Sculpin was actually on a regular tap (the opposite of rotating, whatver the correct term is for that) for a while. Not last night though so the well must have run dry. Other regulars include Racer 5, Hopsecutioner, Two Hearted, plus some NC beers though I reckon these are a bit ordinary.

There is always something special, too. Last night it was Palate Wrecker and Avery IPA. They are tapping Hopslam tonight.

See what I mean? The only thing better would be if they had topless women and free weed!

Food? Do you really care? Places like Tyler's just aren't that common. Check it out!

I went to Tyler's Taproom mostly for the beer, but was impressed by the quality of food I received. However, the point of this review was to highlight the outstanding beer selection offered. As reviewed previously, there's not quite the selection of NC brews, at least not as many as you would expect being that the place is located in North Carolina. However, their overall selection is pretty solid.

I also appreciated the knowledge that our server had on beers. I explained what I was looking for, and he was able to make a few suggestions and help me narrow down my choice to one. Ultimately, we ended up deciding on Founder's Breakfast Stout, which obviously was a fantastic choice.

Food wise, their Brewer's Chili was phenomenal. While the prices are about average for this area, I still find them a bit on the pricey side -- but not unreasonably so, and I will definitely return in the near future.

Just off 64 in the Beaver Creek Commons area. Located in the back 40 section, though, near the movie theater.

Two bars, dining room bar that tends to be more crowded and a bit more formal vs the back room bar that is a bit more laid back. The tap selection is almost the same between the two bars, but check both as there can be a few differences between the two.

Nice tv coverage in the back if you are looking for a game. A couple of pool tables, too. Modest outdoor section, well covered but next to the parking lot.

Good, attentive service every time I've been in - even when crowded. Great selection of taps, with a few hard to find offerings. Not a great selection of NC taps, though, if that's what you are looking for.

Menu is varied and usually appeals to all that I bring in. Even the kids.

One of the Tyler's locations should be a must stop if passing through the Triangle.
