Brewery tours and tastings with delicious brews are awesome, but the combination of great beer and great food is a dream come true.  Boylan Bridge Brewpub in downtown Raleigh crafts original recipes on their premises and serves them up with extraordinary pub food like crab dip, lobster mac & cheese, chicken pot pie, and vegetable penne pesto.

The brewery’s year-round beers include the bright and hoppy Gantlet Golden, the strong Bruno Bitter (Bit-Her), the richly dark Pullman Porter and the classic, dry-roasted Southbound Stout.  Seasonals include Polar Bear Winter Ale, Sidetrack Summer Ale and Trainspotter Scottish Ale.

Tours and tasting hours aren’t necessary at Boylan Bridge, because as long as the brewpub is open, you’re guaranteed an artfully crafted brew. This brewpub is perfect for beautiful Spring and Summer days, with a large porch where you can sip your beer with a beautiful view of downtown Raleigh.
