We have in-laws in town and are looking to take the husband out for his birthday (along with the 2 kids). He loves craft beers, and we'd love to go some place with great food and great beer (where kids are also welcome). Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks in advance!

We were at Boylin Bridge downtown last weekend and there were a TON of families there. They have a huge patio if it's nice out with awesome views of downtown =) The beer and the food is pretty decent =)

Agreed. Perhaps not the best brew in town, but definitely the best view. If it's a nice day, this would be my pick. . . . sit on the patio.

If the weather is not nice, then Natty Greene's would be a good choice.

Those 2 places are the only ones that are brewpubs with breweries on the premises. If you just want craft beer from anywhere, there are lots more choices.

not that it will help you this weekend, but Bull City Burger and Brewery is set to open the end of March. it will have local beef burgers, in-house hot dogs, in-house condiments (they make their own mustard, ketchup, saurkraut) AND there will be a kids' play area.

Not sure where you are--but there's also Carolina Brewery on Franklin St where kids are def welcome. But my favorite place for local beer is Fullsteam Brewery in Durham--no food, but you can bring your own or order it in, or from one of the food trucks that park outside, and kids run amok there. It's just a big open room with picnic tables.

Thanks for the ideas. We are looking for this evening, so it might be a bit chilly for outside, even if we go early...

Also, it doesn't have to be brewery per se, just looking for a place with good beer and good food that's kid friendly...

Any additional suggestions would be appreciated!!

Tyler's at American Tobacco is kid friendly, has a huge number of taps, and OK food (we always go when my parents are visiting).

Raleigh Times doesn't have a ton of taps, but a good bottle list, and good food, although not a kid's menu--no chicken tenders there if that's what you're looking for, but a lot of families do go there.

We liked Natty Greene's, and it's kid-friendly--crayons and a kid's menu.

Tyler's in Apex is also an option, depending where you live.

Raleigh Times has an AMAZING selection of rare bottles. You'll go broke quickly though.

We took our kids to Natty Greene's and they enjoyed looking at the brewery through the glass.
