Multiple visits, figured it was time to rate. Great space in the old newspaper building for which the barís named. Only problem is that the acoustic is pretty live so noise can be a problem. Nice tiled floor, dark wood, very pleasing to the eye. The food is quite nice too, maybe just a shade too much on the "bar food" side of things on occasion (though if you can get any of The Pitís ícue itís a must). Bottle selection is pretty extensive, tending towards the Belgian side of things, with a pretty decent range of sours, and some nice U.S. and German offerings too. Bottle prices are considerably marked up, and Iíve consequently never ordered one. The tap selection has suffered of late, though, which is why I can only give it an 11 in this category. Overall, though, one of downtown Raleighís better spots.

Visited here last Thursday evening with my wife and son, ( 3/25/10 ). at 8:30pm the place was busy, but were able to grab the last table available outside. our food was very good and the home-made chips were outstanding. excellent beer selection too. Iíd definitely stop here again when in the area.

I was surprised they were so busy on a Wednesday at 6 PM. The outside tables were packed! They have a good beer list and I was really happy to be able to try Skaís Modus Hoperandi. I intended to stay for dinner but decided the music was too loud for a relaxing dinner with friends.

Definitely a decent slection of brews. The food is pretty good too. The pork nachos are worth getting but the burger is pretty average. It can get cramped at times.

Stopped in with JCB, emagee and OldStyleCubFan. We had good service and the food was good (the Cuban I had was good, and the pork nachos rocked!) Good beer selection. Gets a bit cramped. Our server knew his beer very well.

OldGrowth  (190) the Containment Area, North Carolina | October 27, 2008| Updated October 28, 2012
Finally visited after being down here a couple years now. Two halves, one smoking one not, lots of exposed brick, rough concrete. Non smoking half is the original side, they took over a store front next door and expanded. Bar on non smoking is J shaped with a little bump out in the middle for bartenders, about 20 or so seats, looked about same size in smoking. Tables on sidewalk too. Thereís a side room off of the non smoking side that looks like it accommodate small groups. Service was good, maybe a tad slow, but it was almost full on a Saturday afternoon, 6 drafts, when I was there it was Troubadour Obscura, Pabst, Brooklyn reserve, Jolly Pumpkin Calabaza Blanca, Gaffel grolsch, Big Boss Harvest. Ok prices on drafts, bottles get pricey. Food was good, not great, My fish & chips were a tad soggy, not falling apart, but not crisp. They do have a couple vegetarian options. Little high on the food prices too. Love the feel of the place, gives you the city feel most places donít in the area. now non smoking through out, have moved into another section of the building so three sections now, plus a roof deck

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 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.

I was very impressed with this place. The bottled beer selection was quite impressive, especially the Belgians. The atmosphere is great, and the bartender was knowledgeable, friendly, and attentive. The only negative thing I can say is that the beer (mostly just the Belgians) was very expensive--however some of the high gravs were reasonably priced for a big bottle.
