Your neighborhood bar and more...

Starting with an idea and a phone conversation between friends, strengthened by the support of our families and the local community, the Hop Yard NC is a true labor of love. Finding a passion, making it your life's work and being able to share it with your family and with others is a great gift and we feel very lucky.


Our Retail

We were awarded Raleigh Magazines Best Bottle Shop in 2019 and pride ourselves on always having a wide selection of fresh craft beer available both in-store and online. We build relationships with surrounding breweries and wholesalers to make sure we keep our finger on the pulse of what's 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. We also have an extensive wine selection to meet all price points ranging from wines from the US to wines from across Europe, Australia, South America and South Africa.

Our Bar

We are a community focused venue with friendly and knowledgable staff who will always make you feel welcome whether it is your 1st visit or your 101st and if you are a craft beer expert or someone who simply wants to come and spend time around good beer and good people. 

We have a casual and comfortable atmosphere with plenty of indoor and outdoor seating for you to hang out with friends and family. We are also dog friendly, so you can bring your furry family along with you too. We have 28 frequently rotating taps of craft beer and also serve wine, cider and kombucha by the glass. We also sell a wide range of sipping bourbons, whiskeys, rums, brandys, gins and vodkas for those who are looking for something a little stronger.

The Hop Yard isn't just a location to buy the best in craft beer, wine and cider, it's also a place to get plugged into the craft beer community that has become so strong in North Carolina. Oh, don't get us wrong, we want to come in and drink with us, but more importantly, we just want you to come in. So stop by, pull up a bar stool and we can chat over a pint.

See you real soon.
