Came here between World Beer Festival sessions as well as after the festival.
If you like the industrial vibe, this place is for you.
We ran into lots of servers, who ranged from friendly and attentive to downright incompetent.
Lots of seating indoors and out.
Food was tasty and simple.
Impressive selection of beer, truly living up to the taphouse moniker. Highly recommended.

Ate there between Swssions of the WBF. Sure it was crowded, but the service was sub par, and the food was below average. Salad came with meal. Burger was overdone and somewhat dry. Never got the water we requested.
Great draft beer selection! Canít complain there.
Probably wouldnít go back. Was not impressed.

a very large place in a great location. I missed the Stone release party by two days, but was still able to get a snifter of the 2006 Double Bastard. ( which was fantastic!!! ) sat outside and was only here long enough to sip a couple of beers on a gorgeous afternoon. nice place.

Finally tried this place out. Iíll say this much, the location is fantastic. I love what Durham did with this area. Girlfriend and I sat outside next to the river and had a few brews. Theyíve got a good selection of brews on tap and in bottle. Lots of Rogue stuff, but thats a story all to itself. The food was good, nothing mind blowing but in my opinion thats not what you should be there for.

Big wide open restaurant/bar with exposed ducting that gives it a kind of industrial farmhouse feel. A pretty decent draft list, including things like several vintages of bigfoot, a couple of duck-rabbit beers, etc. Food was average bar food, the fries were pretty good though. A nice place.

I cannot vouch for the food, but the beer selection is really good for the Durham area. This Taproom is in the recently renovated Durham Tobacco District, which is right beside the home of the Durham Bulls baseball team (of Bull Durham fame). Cool location, helpful service, solid draught selection, can be a little bit noisy, good selection of Carolina sourced beer.

The first thing I noticed about this place is how huge it is in area. We were seated quickly and I asked for a beer list... I was brought a giant tome labeled "Beer Bible." Itís kind of padded to make it seem more absurd than it is, but they truly do have an extensive draught selection. Worth a visit.
