I went to a few Carboy meetings back in 2009...good club, I just don't have the time with classes and work to go. I think the beer scene in Raleigh is excellent. Check out Lonerider, Big Boss, etc. There are breweries in Durham, Winston-Salem, Chapel Hill, etc that are great. The brewing scene in the area has really taken off since I moved here in 2008. Natty Greens is newer and is one of my go to spots. Welcome to the Triangle!
