Interesting place located in downtown Durham! they have basically a fast food counter where you can order burgers and they give you a take away number or you can get full service from the bar. The bar it is. They had six things on tap. One was pretty solid, the other eh. The food was fantastic especially for the money. Parking is probably an issue during the day but there seemed plenty on street at night. Solid place, nice place to have in a neighborhood.

The idea of a brewery which specializes in burgers is wonderful. However, thanks to NC state law, all ground beef has to be burned so I donít see the point in doing a dedicated burger joint with some of the finest meat just to see it become dried out and tough. Anyway, I was already informed about the burger thing beforehand and I knew better. The duck frites are quite tasty. The beer is solid, though very "safe" and "English". I like the ambiance of the place and the service was very good.

Very awesome addition to the Triangle craft beer scene- a very casual artisanal burger place cum brewpub in a well-lit, nice part of downtown Durham. Picnic benches for seating so sit with randos. Burgers were excellent, smaller, good size though, with awesome toppings like roasted Poblano peppers. You can get tons of free sides so go wild. Their chimichuri was nuts! Pickle chips were also very good. The duck frites were so thin though it was hard to use them for dipping, and they cooled down to room temperature so fast from exposed surface area :( Tasty still. I order the burger rare, and it was more ímediumí Iíd say. And with such high quality ground beef (local, grassfed) you can definitely go straight up rare as hell so I was a bit sad about that. Beers were pretty good, nothing really that I ílikedí and a couple on tap were big misses. But it is a fun, passionate, experimenting brewery and you can get samples of everything for super cheap so hard to complain. Growler fills were similarly very cheap, they unfortunately will only fill their own growlers :/ but the glass deposit is like $5 and fills were something like $7-10. Very cheap. Will be back. Had a blast. Oh, the food came out wickedly fast!

Located about half a mile from Fullsteam but its more downtownish so parking is a little tricker, but I did see a garage after I found a spot on the street. As for ambience picture a Five Guys (or casual burger join) with disco-ball lit brew kettles, a bar and beers that are actually pretty damn good. Short on cash so I had the $3 duck frites which accomplished what I expected them too. Samples are available for a buck each (4 ounces). Food is pretty cheap, prices are good and the beers, ranging from a golden ale to an imperial stout and two barleywines, were all solid to very good. Bartenders were helpful despite it being busy. "Table service" is available at the bar but you go to a window to order, and walk up to the bar with your beers, if you sit anywhere else. Despite this, the bartenders managed to do well despite having a full work-load. Seems like a very good addition to the Triangle beer scene. Oh yeah, gonna rerate this and boost the score just cause of the pastured beef. Because that is important to me. Go Bull City.

A great brewpub and eatery in Durham. There is a somewhat small bar and a number of long tables. If you sit at the tables, you need to go up to the kitchen and wait in line to place your order (but if you sit at the bar, you are served by the bartender). A fairly extensive tap list with some interesting seasonals (bitter and stout with coffee and chili powder - just to name a few). The beers were good, not great, but certainly palatable and interesting too. The food is quite awesome- great burgers (from grass-fed cows), all-natural ingredients, you really canít go wrong! I was quite impressed by this place, I wish I could be a regular here!

Been here probably a half dozen times now, in the company of family, friends, neighbors, and teammates, and itís been almost universally loved. After a slightly rough start - the layout is such that the brewery almost couldnít handle the initial crowds - the place has settled nicely into its own. Burgers are damn good, and while you do pay a bit more for your food politics, itís less than some other places in the Triangle (like Draft) and is fuckin tasty. Beers have ranged from unspectacular to very good, but I love the sessionable focus of most of their offerings and theyíre clearly headed in the right direction.

Their beer is OK, but their burgers are wonderful...pricey but worth every penny.

Okay. Went tonight. Pretty busy inside. Sat at the bar, ordered the sampler of all beers available, plus a burger and frites. Because of the way the long picnic tables were set up and where the bar is, people kept walking behind me and kicking my chair over and over again. Waiters, patrons, young, old. Very annoying. Food was okay--grass-fed burger was overly gamey, pretty good otherwise but not juicy at all. Beer is mediocre as well. Standard, mainly English style brews. Solid beers, but lack complex character like many in the area. Great service from Doug at the bar. Hope to see some good variety from these guys and look forward to trying more in the future. Overall, im happy to have a new brewpub around, but still left wanting a little more ,and for some crazy reason, and expecting better.
