Neat Draught House

A friend brought me here while I was visiting Raleigh. They had a large and great beer selection on tap and in bottles. Food was great, it has a good selection. Service was excellent. Worth a visit if you enjoy good brews.

If you like craft beer, this place is for you. A couple hundred beers on tap. Very noisy . They do have a nice patio you can sit on.

This has got to be one of the craziest beer places ever! There's no way to try them all! The items on the menu are ridiculously tasty....I highly recommend the wursts as well as the meat and cheese plate. Also, join the UFO club and get your plate on the ceiling!

Great place to grab a beer and meet with friends after work in downtown Raleigh. Huge beer selection on tap. Not a huge menu but most of the bar favorites are there!

Cool outdoor area, decent beer selection (go inside and look if you can't find anything on their menu). Food is actually pretty good for the type of place this is. The soft pretzel is crazy good for some late night eats. They have trivia & pint nights during the week as well if that's your thing.

This is the Hooters of beer bars, FYI. But awesome taplist, awesome bartenders. Tourists should go on NC tap night on Sundays.

Roaming around downtown when I came across this wonderful place. Countless beers and a solid "beer" food menu. It was a great place and hoping to bring some pals soon

If it hadn't been raining, I'm sure I would have adored sitting on the patio. We were indoors, and the combination of music and chatter was headache material! Food and drinks were very good. Waitresses wear very short skirts and much of the atmosphere is "lightly raunchy". Enough types of beer to ensure you could try something different every day... More

I hear this is the best beer place in the area. I had a North Carolina themed flight of beer and each one was great.
