First on the list of any microbrewery-tour of Raleigh is a visit to the Trophy Brewing Company. Featuring their own line of beers that the locals clamor for, it is recommended to order a pint of “Brett Pitt,” an IPA with excellent flavor. Moving can be hungry work, so you will really appreciate the unique pizza offerings, which includes a pesto-chicken-based affair, called the Most Loyal that will simply amaze your taste buds.

The Lynnwood Brewing Concern is a going concern because they offer an amazing selection of handcrafted beers for those finding themselves thirsty on Raleigh’s north side of town. An array of community tables provide a great place to gather with friends, and large plate glass windows allow you to watch the beer being made with such precision that it’s like looking at the inner workings of a finely balanced Swiss watch.
