We know that with warmer weather on the horizon, more of us are itching to get outdoors — safely. Well, we’re right there with you + nothing says ‘spring’ quite like day drinking at some of your favorite local spots.

Did you know that the Triangle is home to 30+ breweries? And there’s more on the way — The Glass Jug Ber Lab is opening a second taproom on Monday, Mar. 29 in downtown Durham + HeyDay Brewing recently opened its doors at 5301 Tin Roof Way. 

If you’re a sucker for craft beers and like trying new places, the official Raleigh Beer Trail is made for you. Although prizes are currently unavailable due to COVID-19, we still encourage you to take the challenge + support breweries in the Raleigh area.
