A spin on a classic style. Gold Brick Pilsner fuses a traditional German Pilsner with hoppy New Zealand Motu hops to build layers of floral and piny notes in the aroma. Refreshing and crisp this New age pilsner is a great quencher for the summer season.

This place is my second home. I've been coming here for so many years. It started with Tuesday night run club. Since then I've been to many events (including Casktoberfest which was SUPER fun), I ride my bike over (as do many people), Christmas shopping at Pop-Up markets, friend's birthday parties, Sunday Yoga flow with Nicole (who is AMAZING...this is the best deal in Raleigh, $10 for an hour flow and a delicious beer!), etc. They get food trucks. The beer has great variety and quality and they have frequent seasonal releases. Cannot recommend enough. Love. That is all.

2/19/19 Update - I've now returned to this place multiple times as I have some friends who are devout regulars. I must say, the beer quality here has changed quite a bit, for the better! I've noticed that they routinely have multiple IPA options, many of which are really tasty. Plus, they have some of the nicest and well-kept dart boards of all of the bottle shops & breweries around here. This place is now becoming my regular place for a reprieve. ----------------- I only wish they would close the garage doors and cool down this place. It gets crazy humid inside.
