I had no idea this place even existed prior to being chauffeured to its door - buried a block off of Hillsborough street out near the Waffle Haus.

A total dive in every sense - the interior makes you hopeful that the brewing process is a little more sanitary than the patron section. It's attached to a homebrew shop, which is pretty relevant if you're into that.

They had a good amount of beer on tap - maybe 12-15 and offer a variety of pour sizes. Samplers of the house of clay rye IPA and coffee porter were both surprisingly enjoyable.

My hunch is that we lucked out and ordered the 2 best beers - it would have been hard to stay for another.

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.
