I am a big fan of most offerings by Weeping Radish.

Check out Milltown in Carrboro (it's adjoined to Chapel Hill), they have a great Belgian selection, as well as some good local brews. Other places with a good selection will local favorites are Tyler's (especially the Durham one), Brixx and Carolina Brewery (they make a few tasty beers) on Franklin Street.

There are a bunch of new breweries around the Triangle (Chapel Hill, Durham, Raleigh) that I haven't tried yet. But I always like almost anything from Highland brewery in Asheville, the Gaelic and Oatmeal Porter are good and readily available at any grocery. Carolina Brewing Co. is pretty good, they have a tasty seasonal Spring Bock right now if you can find it.

Sam's Blue Light, is in Durham and supposedly has the best beer selection in the southeast. I'm not sure if it's true but they do have a damn good selection!

A new brewery opened in Charlotte about a week or so ago, "Old Mech Brewery" Olde Mecklenburg Copper. They currently only sell one in Düsseldorf-style in a refillable growler (nice souvenir).

try out natty greene's beers if you get a chance. they were at the festival in denver a few years back when i went and their dunkelweizen was awesome. the brewery is in greensboro, i don't know how close that is, but check it out if you get time.
