Default What to do in Raleigh

I'll be in Raleigh over the weekend of the 20th as I have job interviews on Friday and Monday. Does anybody have any good recommendations for beer bars/brew pubs/restaraunts/breweries that I can do on Friday night and Saturday? Thanks!

Do you have a car? I'd go to Tyler's Taproom in Apex (Apex is a "bedroom" community of Raleigh), very nice selection of craft brews and many local brewerys. Another good spot is McGregor Ale House. Both have good food.

Downtown, I'd hit Tir na nOg Irish Pub, The Hiberian Irish Pub and Mellow Mushroom (best pizza IMHO).

Depending on where you are staying, most would be 15-20 minutes from the airport. Hope this helps and good luck with the interviews. The Raleigh area is a good place to live and work...

Carolina Hurricanes are playing Friday and Monday night! Not the best team this year but still a good time!

I actually do like Big Boss. Cool atmosphere and a lot of beers they don't bottle. Might want to take a drive and check out Red Oak. Not a huge fan of Natty Greens- not bad beer just not my local favorite.
