Enjoyably designed, multi-roomed bar that is gradually expanding through the old offices of the newspaper for which it is named. An extraordinarily classy place in a downmarket kind of way. Some highly unusual beers though can be at a price. A quiality act.

This place, when not too busy, is just freakiní awesome. Only a few beers on tap but one is La Chouffe (!) and yes, they serve it in a sniffer. Officially my first Belgian style beer on tap. Anyway, their bottled beer list is just ridiculous, including 32 (!) Belgian style beers. Awesome. If you like Belgians and you are in Raleigh, you owe it to yourself to visit this place. The space itself is the restored interior of the old Raleigh Times newspaper building, high ceilings and low light; real tasteful and cool. Food is a bit overpriced but tasty and interesting for bar food. Longways cut pickle chips are the highlight here.

Our first stop on a recent visit to Raleigh. Cool, historic building in the hub of the downtown area that has been creatively restored by the current owners. Got here midweek, between the lunch hour and happy hour crowds, so seating and service were not an issue. In fact, the service was top notch and informative. The 18 taps ranged from local to global along with an extensive bottle list. Food menu had more than just pub grub and what we ordered was very satisfying. Both the beers and food are fairly priced. Definitely recommend.

Walked here from our hotel on the Friday before the WBF. We liked the place immediately - the old building is cool and has lots of character. The Bartender was fairly knowledgeable, and when he discovered I was a beer geek, he found a few not on the menu items. Plus, Expedition on draft...

I really like the "shabby-chic" interior and the vibe of the Raleigh Times. The food was great, but overpriced, which is the main issue that I have with the place. It is inexcusably the most expensive American beer bar that Iíve ever been in. That it packs them in is a tribute to the "see and be seen" factor.

Visited here on a lazy Sunday afternoon right after hitting busy bee. This was much busier, slightly surprisingly, but I donít know the Raleigh scene so well. Also had a slightly more eclectic tap selection (though it really could have just been the luck of the draw on this particular day). Bartender was friendly and helpful which I appreciated. Would probably be a regular if I lived in Raleigh.

We stopped in on a late Saturday afternoon before the townís Guy Fawkes Festival. Itís a pretty big place- three downstairs rooms that each had their own full bar and an upstairs room with a bar and a nice outdoor deck on the roof. We only had some appetizers but they were tasty and three of them fed the four of us well. Solid tap lineup offered both local and far reaching beers. I stayed local with some Mother Earth and Foothills offerings. Prices seemed very reasonable. The bottle list was pretty expansive and organized by style on their menu. Our server wasnít the most attentive guy and the place wasnít all that busy, but then he took off a couple of our beers for the long wait- so I have to assume we just experienced a fluke. The interior is a mix of polished refinement and half restored/demoíd finishes. The exposed brick was nice, the broken drywall was weird, but it all kind of worked so it didnít bother me. Was really happy with our time here and will seek it out again my next time in Raleigh.

Another fine raleigh beer bar. Iíve only eaten her once but I go here for their beers. Iíve been 5 times and have always found something I desire. It is a happening place but Iíve managed to always find a place at the bar. This is our after party place for WBF as well. They get the good stuff here.

Knowledgeable serving staff, I believe they require the Cicerone. Found a few things on draught that werenít around at the time and the food was really nice. Cool atmosphere.

I do miss this place if you love Belgian beer and good sandwiches (or pub food!) then this is the place to go. Groovy atmosphere (an old newspaper) and fun servers. The Belgian bottle menu is truly something to behold. I remember a feeling of shock (in a good way) the first time I beheld it. Always fun draughts as well, if somewhat limited in scope. A bit pricey, but thatís in keeping with Raleigh in general way too overpriced on all counts. Too many young lawyer-types with too much money to spend does not a reasonable city make.
