    I will be in the Raleigh area at the end of July for a couple of weeks. I was wondering what Breweries/Brewpubs I should check out. I plan on going to Duck-Rabbit and Foothills. What are some of the better bottle shops in the area? Thanks for your help!!

    I recommend Ridgewood Wine & Beer, Trophy Brewing, Raleigh Brewing Company, The Busy Bee, Tyler's, and The Raleigh Times.

    In addition to the list above there is also Bottle Revolution (Beer shop) and Big Boss Brewing in Raleigh.
    Take a side trip to Durham, it is only 15-20 minutes and visit Fullsteam (Brewery) and Sam's Quick Shop (Beer store).

    Thank you for the suggestions. When I was down there a couple of years ago I did my beer shopping at Total Wine & More. Not a bad selection. I'll try to stop at as many places as I can. Any where to buy Cigar City in the area? I know it's a long shot.

    don't think Cigar City distributes to NC

    Unfortunately it is not distro'd here. I had to get my first taste a couple of weeks ago during a trip to Disney.

    As others have mentioned, plenty of great options. My personal favorites are Ridgewood, Sam's and Fullsteam
