Crafting a Community for Fans of Craft Breweries

We are a friendly local pub focused on crafting a community for fans of craft breweries. We are a bar where you can enjoy a welcoming atmosphere whether it is your 1st or your 101st visit to us and whether you are a craft beer expert or someone who simply wants to spend time around good beer and good people.  Our bar has cosy indoor space and an outdoor patio which is a great place to hang out with friends and family. Being dog lovers, we are dog friendly, so feel free to bring your furry family along with you.

We hold a number of weekly events such as music, trivia, live comedy shows, tastings, bottle shares to share bottles with your peers and much more. Looking for a rental space for a private party ? We can do that too, see our event rental page.

Our Bar

We have 32 rotating taps of craft beer from the best craft breweries in North Carolina plus States surrounding.  Being from the UK and growing up around cask ales, we also look for opportunities provide you with amazing cask beers.

Not a beer drinker ? You're still allowed in! In addtion to the best in craft beer on tap we also frequently have craft cider and mead on tap and to take away.

Cocktails plus wines by the glass. With there being so many wine bars and wine stores to choose from, at the Hop Yard we focus on curating our wine collection to include wines we love that are sourced from boutique wineries and producers that cannot be found in larger stores. We also focus on sourcing our wine selection from producers who use sustainable and organic wine making practices in addtion to biodynamically produced and vegan wines. 

We have a full bar and in addtion to sipping bourbons and whiskeys we serve craft cocktails and run weekly cocktail specials. Come along and try our French 75!

Our Retail

We pride ourselves on always having a wide selection of the best fresh craft beer available both to drink in or to take away. We build relationships with surrounding breweries and wholesalers to make sure we keep our finger on the pulse of what's new and trending. In addition to selling the best of craft beer, we also sell cider, mead, kombucha and hard seltzers sourced from local NC businesses and further afield.

Our Philosophy 

We believe that a bar can be the heart of a community. The Hop Yard isn't just the best location to explore Delicious Librations in North Raleigh, it's a place to plug into the craft beverage scene that has become so strong in North Carolina. So no matter who you are stop by, just unwind and relax, chat with our friendly staff and make new friends.
