Located in an old tobacco factory/warehouse, with very high ceilings and exposed brick walls. I sat at a table in the bar area which had of a sportsbar atmosphere, with pool tables, video games, and several TVs. The beer selection here is the best I found in the area. Extensive tap list and a large bottle selection as well. Table service was fast and friendly. Didnít eat here so I canít comment on the food.

I love hate this place. Good for a beer before or after a Durham Bulls game, but the food mostly stinks and they NEVER update their tap list. Last night they had "rotational Sierra Nevada" and claimed they had monthly rotations of small-batch exclusive beers from SN... I asked and was told "pale ale" or "summer." Similar for their claims about other breweries. Really annoying. Wish Durham had a good beer bar. This isnít it.

October, 2012. Went on a Sunday fall afternoon and expected a big football crowd but it wasnít bad and we got a booth right away. Open area inside, bar area in the back. Cool outside but still nice enough that people were outside on the patio area eating also. Itís in a nice little area too, near the ball park. The food was good, our server excellent. I asked about a beer and she brought me a sample. Really enjoyed the beer list, a lot of local and a lot of beers I normally donít see where I live.

Impressively large bar-restaurant-terrace place near the Durham Bulls baseball ground that hosts the annual World Beer Festival. Short supply lines and tight stock control increases the chance of obliterating dodgy beers. Nicely laid out. Intrusive music, as ever.

haha, the picture here is of the carrboro location. someone should fix that. anyway. this location is much larger than the carrboro tylers and has more taps. not to say they are that much better than carrboro qualitatively, but they do tend to do their special release events out here instead of carrboro, i guess because itís a bigger space. I wish it was much better but itís what we got.

This is an excellent spot. Not sure why people have given it a bad review because it was really busy. It is a really neat place in the tobacco mill. Tap selection is really strong and they did a nice job of matching glassware that is labeled for each beer. Food was nice - enjoyed a build-a-burger and thenawesome garlic fries. Hope to return soon.

Great selection of beer; food not as good as Village Draft House, but solid Taproom overall.

Met up with local legend JCB here on a Friday afternoon for lunch and some pints. The surrounding area is pretty cool, with the old American Tobacco buildings rehabbed with restaurants and shops (in St. Louis the building would have been abandoned for 40 years and then demolished, so I appreciate this). The inside is fine, with a big, well-lit main room and nice back bar, and a lot of wood. The service behind the bar was friendly but slow at times. I was thrilled to see so many local and regional labels: Fullsteam, Foothills, Skull Coast, The Duck-Rabbit, Terrapin, et al- thatís exactly the kind of stuff I came here for, but there is a lot more on the taps, too. My sandwich was okay, but the garlic fries that came with it were tasty. Prices are fair. Tylerís made for a nice afternoon of NC drinking, and I would call this a must-visit if youíre in Durham for a day or more.
