    Start with the Southern Lager, the brew that made Fullsteam. Then go down the rabbit hole with the rest of their delightful beers! Great open atmosphere for catching up with friends, old and new!

    All you beer loving yogis: don't miss out on Sunday yoga. It's donation based, and finishes up right at noon so you can grab a beer afterwards. Be sure to get there early though, it fills up quick.

    Comfortable seating, wide variety of beers to try with new ones coming on"steam" frequently. Buy their outstanding design tshirts to show your friends your excellent taste in locally brewed beer.

    Try any of their Plow to Pint beers, which are made with North Carolina agricultural products. Try Hogwash, a hickory-smoked porter; Carver Sweet Potato and First Frost, a wild persimmon ale. Read more

    My favorite brewery in the Triangle. Haven't had a bad beer there yet, and the atmosphere is just awesome. Working Man's Lunch is my all-time fave. Great seasonals, too.

    Come with a clean palate/flush your tastebuds with water, so you can taste the wonderful complexity of these beers! Then fill up on whatever awesome food truck is parked outside.

    Love getting the half pints ($2 each!) and sampling different brews. The bourbon beer is fantastic - and so is the people watching. If you're hungry, hit up the food trucks.

    Make sure to go to Trivia on Thursdays, but be sure to go early it fills up fast. Awesome selection of beers, for something a little funky try to the Kentucky Common

    Beautiful place to hang out with tasty microbrews & a food truck out front. This is a dog & family friendly place, there are often several young kids around.

    Great selection of unconventional beer varieties - actually got to do a sampling of sours as opposed to having only one option.

    Nice microbrew right next door to the Pit restaurant. Only could try one beer but it was good and left me wanting more.

    Check out the Conde Nast Traveler's Fullsteam Brewery review. They're a fan of the plow-to-pint approach and the "forager" series, as we all are. Read more

    Beasley's honey white, First Frost (persimmon winter seasonal), or Cackalacky (ginger pale ale) = guaranteed success.

    El Toro - "American Cream Ale" - this beer is awesome but tastes slightly like boiled peanuts.

    Not a hop head? Carver sweet potato is awesome, as is the El Toro cream ale (though it's weak). And try the pear cider if they have it on tap.

    Beers were okay. Nothing struck me as particularly amazing. It felt like it wanted to be hipster, but also wanted rich people money.
