This bar is located between the Cheesecake Factory and Belks in Crabtree Valley Mall. They have another small bar with mall seating directly downstairs. Huge red biplane hanging in the mall outside the bar front makes it hard to miss.

12 or so taps upstairs with all NC beers, mostly locals, on tap. Another 6 or so taps downstairs. Got sucked into the mall with the family on a Saturday afternoon, so this place was a very nice surprise. Big Boss, Lonerider, Aviator, and CBC all represented locally. Mother Earth, Foothills, Highland, Red Oak, and Duck Rabbit represented regionally. Beer prices were a little high, but this is the mall.

Sandwiches dominate the reasonably priced section of the menu, but salads abound as do some slightly high-priced and relatively adventurous entree selections. Decent place for a quick meal.

TV's upstairs give you a chance to catch up on a game or two, but did not notice any in the much smaller downstairs bar area.

If the wife is forcing you to go the mall, make her pick Crabtree and this place will help you to not regret the trip.

It has the feel of a chain bar, even though it is a stand-alone, but it feels cozy and unpretentious like a neighborhood bar. They have around 10 beers on tap, but all are excellent local brews; I have no idea how many they have in bottles since I never saw a bottle list. Serving people are very efficient, helpful and friendly, and service is quick even when they are busy. They have several TVS tuned to sports, but no sound and no ambient music, so the only noise is conversation. Food is very tasty and reasonably priced. If they have rotating taps of just North Carolina's finest, this is definitely worthy of multiple visits if you live in Raleigh, or visit frequently.
