The Boylan Bridge Brewpub is a brewpub near the Boylan bridge. (duh!) Anyway, besides the simple name, the ‘bridgepub’ deserves a visit by any beer fan in downtown Raleigh. The beer is brewed on site and they serve a variety of styles from their lighter colored Gaston Golden to the darker Bruno Bitter. You can also order wine if a tasty brew does not quite hit the spot on a warm evening. (ladies?) The food has received mixed reviews but if you want to play it safe, go for the onion rings.
The big draw of the bridgepub is the large outdoor patio with a great view of the Raleigh skyline. Every nice day or night I’ve visited, the patio has been packed with others enjoying the weather and the view. Walk down Hargett St. from downtown and give it a try.
