A great, local, relaxed and authentic brewery. It's more a part of the community than a business. John brings a great knowledge of the brewing and home brewing cultures to make it all possible. Along with his partners, they run a great place. I especially like the constantly changing offerings brewed by the employees and guests. I really enjoyed the jalapeño pilsner. And when you factor in the homebrew shop and food trucks, you can get everything you need under on roof. I look forward to their continued evolution.

This was our first stop in our whirlwind tour of the Raleigh beer scene. This jawn is on the edge of town, by the colleges. Big open space, lots of dogs. I mean LOTS!

11 taps, with a bit of everything:

Belgian Golden, Rye IPA, Pils, Session IPA, Scottish Export Ale, Coffee Porter, Imperial Oatmeal Stout, Test Batch #1 Imperial IPA, Wee Heavy… served in 8-12oz.

Food truck outside (as in every other brewery in Raleigh). Nothing barrel-aged or unique on tap (they did have a $17 BA imperial oatmeal bottle), but good stuff overall. Fun place.

Dropped by the other day, was in town to see Run the Jewels, and really liked the space they're in. There's a good bit of room, indoor and out. Connected to a homebrew shop too, which - as a brewer - I found interesting. They just happened to have two years of their stellar BA Miller's Toll as well as rum & vanilla variants. Great stuff. Neat spot. Can't wait to get back. Cheers!

I really enjoy this place in town, and in my opinion one of the better breweries in Raleigh/Wake County area. They do a great job and it's simple. Having a brew shop next door isn't a bad thing either. Bring your dog, hang out, play darts, grab something from the food truck and either hang out inside or out. They do a great job - and focus on brewing great beer! Nothing else,

Great homebrew shop and excellent brewery. Location is easy to find and shop is well stocked for the homebrewer. Of the beers I've tried, all were very good quality and worth a try.

Can't get a flight, but cool environment, dog friendly, has lots of board games, darts, and other activities. Service was pretty quick even though it was busy. Beer we tried was good but not great (and served in plastic cups :( ), if I remember correctly they had 10-12 on tap. They don't have a kitchen but typically have a food truck outside.

The place was really quiet on a Sunday afternoon (a real hot one) when I visited and the space was very large with multiple indoor and outdoor seating areas - though I have to say that it was dark and almost felt like an empty nightclub in the daytime. The folks that were there spanned all walks of life and were very friendly.

The beers were very enjoyable and well poured - proper glassware offered in multiple sizes at a proper temperature with proper amounts of head. Beers tasted very fresh.

The bartender was friendly and helpful though a little slow to serve (I was the only person waiting to order at the bar but I had to wait almost 10 minutes while she finished up a conversation with a friend/customer).

Nice range of styles for beers that made it easy to find something to enjoy.

Stop #434 on my world brewery tour.

Stopped in around noon on a rainy Tuesday in October. Did some shopping at the attached homebrew supply shop (lots of hardware for frankenbrewers).

Ten house beers on tap. I had two flights for nine of the beers: Belgian Golden, Rye IPA, Czech Pilsner, English Pub Ale, Scottish Export, Porter/Coffee Porter, Oktoberfest (they were out), Pale Ale, Chocolate Milk Stout. Also had Kombucha on draft - fermented green tea with ginger. It was spectacular and I'm on a mission now to make it.

All beers were great. I especially enjoyed the hop profile of the pale and the dried out Belgian. Got to chat a bit with the brewer as he ate lunch which added to the enjoyment.

On my three day beer tour of Raleigh, these guys and Crank Arm were the best in terms of variety and quality. Crank has a better atmosphere.
