3.26/5  rDev -23.3%

Was taken here by a local friend. The first thing I noticed was a blackboard outside advertising the day's specials: all NC beers for $2.75 a pint. Not too shabby.

Once inside, my mouth dropped as I looked up to the myriad plates indicating patrons' beer consumption (200 different beers drunk gets you a plate on the wall or ceiling), down to the long line of tap handles, and further down to the waitresses' tawdry outfits. We hit it on a Sunday evening and found the bar mostly empty; the place was large enough and quiet enough with enough tables to be mistaken for a library at nearby N.C. State.

Ordered a few pints at the bar and took the comfy couches in the front window, where a waitress told us she'd serve us the rest of the evening. We never saw her again.

Great selection. About a hundred beers on tap, and several hundred more in bottles. The list of NC specials was a couple dozen long. We each went through a couple of pints, most of which tasted off. Don't know if they're not keeping the draft lines clean, or if there's another problem, but it was disappointing to get a nice pint of local brew that doesn't taste right.

Just about my favorite place in Raleigh. Occasionally the service can be slow (still very friendly but it gets very busy or the waitresses can sometimes be... herbally infused...). I stop by just about every time I go to Raleigh. The food menu has just recently been changed, I wish they would have expanded it more and left the original menu for the Hungry Farmer. Sit outside on the patio and enjoy a cigar. The most dog-friendly place I've seen in Raleigh so far.

80 beers on tap is quite a thing to behold. I was enthused to see the nightly specials were local beers, and our bartender was prompt and attentive. Shared a light platter of meats/cheeses so I don't have much input on the food, although it looked tasty on the menu. I showed up on a weekday, and could imagine it getting quite packed on the weekends. There was also a nice patio for folks to sit or stand. Found the place by chance after pulling off the interstate, would bring a friend back, seems like a successful venture!
