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!
