Craft Beer and Breweries in North Raleigh


Beer in the Triangle

Our in house beer geek, Steve Kruger, is the founder of TriBeer, a local beer lovers’ group in the Triangle. According to Steve, North Raleigh was once a barren wasteland for quality craft beer, but that is no longer the case. As the craft beer revolution heats up, it has spread out to all areas of the Triangle and there are plenty of great options for the craft beer enthusiast. Here are some of his suggestions:

Bottle Shops

Bottle shops also serve draught beer. These are great places to purchase beer to take home, but also enjoy a pint while you’re there. Most of these places will also fill growlers (typically a glass jug) with the beers they have on draught for you to take home.

The Hop Yard
D’s Bottle Shop
Crafty Beer Shop
Lincoln Brewing and Bottle Co.
Bottle Revolution
Bottle Mixx

Raleigh Breweries

There haven’t been any breweries in North Raleigh until now. Compass Rose Brewery located off Gresham Lake Road recently opened its doors and has a beautiful tasting area. They also have frequent visits from food trucks and a family friendly vibe going on. Check out their Facebook page for updates.

Another craft beer establishment worth mentioning is Sawmill Taproom on Leadmine Road. For many years this was the only place in North Raleigh for quality craft beer and they still have a nice lineup of craft beers on tap and good food for your enjoyment as well.  They deserve a lot of love for being at the forefront of this glorious revolution. Cheers!
