Industrial area, gravel parking lot. Had a food truck on a Saturday. Nice bar, very busy and only one bartender (she was very good - most people could not handle slinging beer like she could). Would like to visit again when it wasnít so busy.

Well. My score makes it look bad, but the beer is solid. Its all of thier offerings. Otherwise its a cement patio with a tin roof. There can be food, but its food trucks and not always here. I like lonerider for the area. Solid beers. Prices are normal for the area.

Out of the way in a commercial warehouse. A packed crowd in July with no AC makes me drink fast and head for a place with AC. Folks red faced and vomiting by their car as we drove up should have been a clue. Staff was great!

Utilitarian bar and drinking area tacked onto the brewery. A few wooden benches and tables to make a drinking space of it. The brewery looks great and the tours are fun and interesting thanks to the staff. Selection is the Lonerider brews available plus maybe an experimental tap or the winner of their annual homebrew competition. Prices are good, but a little out of the way to refill a growler or have a few brews. A great space for a great brewery; definitely a place to see if you enjoy LoneRider or want a relaxed place to chill and have a couple of brews (or both).

Stopped in to start a Raleigh brewery tour with a group of friends. Itís in a warehouse area with the tasting room located between the room with the brewing equipment and a big warehouse door. The tasting room is basically just an open room with a picnic table and a small bar with about 10 stools. We all sat down at the bar, then without hesitation, the server started us on a full tasting of all of their 5 or 6 available offerings. They were good sized pours with a nice explanation of each beer we were sampling, exactly like a well-run winery tour. Iíve never seen this at a brewery and loved it. All of their beers were very good, some excellent. The cost of the tasting was also very good...free. Pints were $3. For super fresh, outstanding craft beer, thatís tough to beat. Thereís not much to this place (yet), but it was a highlight of our tour.

Located a fair bit outside of Raleigh in an industrial area. Typical small brewery setup in an industrial park, though they may soon have a tasting room. Parking on site but it may get tricky on weekends. Two beers on tap when I visited, both of which were solid. Four tap lines in the tasting area (inside the brewing area). One had just kicked and they have a fourth beer coming soon. I spoke at length with the assisstant brewmaster who was very nice. $15 growlers, I think refills were $10. Maybe not worth a trip to the brewery as they have restaurant accounts in Raleigh, but cool people nonetheless.
