Stop #439 on my world brewery tour.

Cool outlaw theme. Covered in, outdoor tap room.

Had two flights -hefe, raz wheat, pale, red ale, black IPA, rye stout, brown, amber.

The only beer that really stood out was the pale because it was buttery which is really not a good stand out. All other beers were ok and I couldn't find one to go full pint on (hefe if I had to).

Friendly and knowledgeable staff, with a good variety of beer. 10 -14 beers on tap. Great atmosphere with a large tent outside for events. Family and dog friendly.

I really liked this place. Lots of seating. The facility is huge with plenty of seats at the bar. The quality and selection of beer was fantastic. The staff was also kind and always looking to educate you on the beer selection. Very welcoming place.

I've been 4 times over the past year...

"The Hideout" is almost always loud and crowded... so casual conversation is difficult and service is generally slower than you'll find elsewhere.

Honestly, the Lonerider taproom and their tour really suffer in comparison to other Raleigh/Durham brewery tours/taprooms which is a shame because they do make some good beer.

The elephant in the room is the uhhh... monochromatic crowd. Perhaps the times I've been have been extreme outliers, but each time there has been absolutely no ethnic diversity among the customer base.

Their stuff is readily available on tap and in cans at most other local places, so short of a special keg release or other event going on there, I'd just as soon have something they make at a regular bar or restaurant.

Outstanding beer presented/sold with awesome graphics/theme. You may not always think of Lonerider first but it never disappoints.

Tucked away in an industrial park, on the backside of the brewery building, this place is a cool hangout. Huge tent of the back of the building for a ton of outdoor seating. The bar/tasting room has a bunch of tables in front of a decent sized C-shaped bar. 8-10 beers on tap at any given time, with some of the seasonal/one-off bottle offerings for sale to go, as well as growler fills and 6-packs. Staff was super friendly, and this place was hopping on a weeknight, so I can imagine it gets packed on the weekends. Good beer, good atmosphere, and good people.

Close to the house. Jackie is a fantastic, attentive, and overall nice bartender. This place tends to get crowded quickly after work (all of the 9-5ers from the Trianle).

No food served on site, but they tend to have great food trucks that tend to be on premise a lot of the time.

Haven't taken an official tour, but have been through three brewery on other errands.

Really enjoy that you can have a 24+ ounce mug laser personalized for when you come into the Hideout.

Movie night events are fun.l; projector onto a truck? Great!
