This is my favorite place in the entire Triangle area for beer. The waitstaff is friendly and very knowledgeable about beer. Management goes above and beyond, and they have a lot of cool special beer related events. I have been going here for nearly 9 years and there have been other places that have opened up all over the city, still this is the place that all other beer bars should be measured by.

Great place...the staff is amazing and very knowledgeable. Beer menu changes with new arrivals several times a year. Each night have something on special. Check out the website for more details. Highly recommended. Ask about becoming a beer knurd....lol.

Until Flying Saucer, I never really had a favorite bar. This place is now my "Cheers". Great beer selection, great beergoddesses, and good food. The only downside to the food is no burgers on the menu. On Sun. NC beers on tap for $3 and free brunch for beerknurds. Iíve got my 2nd plate on the wall and Iím working on number 3.

I loved this place. A few of my friends took me down there for my 21st birthday, and my official introduction to real beer, and this place did not disappoint. The beer selection was almost obscene in its length, which would have been overwhelming if I hadnít a) been warned, and b) had some friends there to guide me through it. The staff was friendly and helpful (the miniskirts could be a bit distracting, but I canít say that I minded all too much), and they took good care of everyone at the table, even those who werenít drinking. The only drawback was that it got packed, though that is to be expected in any bar worth itís salt on a Saturday night. The prices were about average, the real reason to go is the very large selection.

Visited on a recent business trip to Raleigh. Decent downtown location although parking can be a bit of a pain. Service was great (whatís not to like about hot females in very short plaid skirts serving you beer). To be fair to the guys working here I did sit at the bar and the male bartender that served me was knowledgeable and attentive. With 81 taps there is a large selection but I will complain that too many of the selections are ordinary. I did find a few harder to find on tap selections here so itís hard to complain but so much. Food was decent and fairly priced. The prices on beer were great; since I was there on a Monday night pints were $2.75 (thatís outstanding for a Duck-Rabbit Schwarzbier and Foothills Seeing Double). This is probably THE place to go in Raleigh for beer. Itís just a notch or two below Tylerís in Durham in my opinion but still a great place.

On the way to Charleston, stayed over in Raleigh and had to stop here. Damn cool place with a ton of local beers. About 50 taps or so and plenty of sampler options. The bartenders and manager were awesome, had a great time and will definitely have to stop back through. Food is pretty damn good as well.

April 2007, the night before the World Beer Festival -- one word review: awesome! Superb beer list wtih a huge number of quality brews available on tap. The menu is limited, but we ate was good. The service was attentive, if she didnít know much about beer. This is a MUST stop in Raleigh, just be prepared for a loud place.
