About
The Hop Yard isn't just a bar and retail store where you can find the best in craft beer and wine, it's also a place to get plugged into the craft beer community that has become so strong in NC. So stop by, bring the family and the family dog, pull up a bar stool and we can chat over a pint or a glass of wine from our 28 taps.

I love hanging at The Hop Yard. Many changes over the past few years and good ones at that! The selection of brews are superb. And the conversation is always good. Due to government mandated restrictions and in the spirit of overall safety, our visit was brief, but very rewarding.

Great neighborhood spot for fantastic craft beers. Knowledgeable and fun staff always make the visit enjoyable. Great place to find unique beers that aren’t at the bigger stores.

Great tap list, and excellent selection of beer to go (especially for someone like me from NYS). Unpretentious, dog friendly. I stop by every time I'm in town.

We stumbled upon this establishment while looking for music bingo and stayed for a few drinks.

Tucked away in a small strip mall, they serve a good selection of beer on draft, not much in terms of liquor and even less for wine. Of course I would have expected this, being they specialize in beer, I was able to find one very nice porter on draft.

Unfortunately one thing do not offer is a decent level of customer service. A short lived blank stare is considered a greeting, however; if you don't get your words out quickly, plan on waiting a while longer to order a drink or even ask a question. Based on my experience each question I asked was met with a sarcastic answer, which led me to the conclusion that they don't care for questions. I felt like I was in a Seinfeld episode, keep to yourself or "NO SOUP FOR YOU"!

There are plenty of other small craft beer shops throughout Raleigh that offer much more in terms of personality and customer service!
Cheers!
