My husband and I enjoy nothing more than exploring a new city and checking out their local breweries. When we moved here a little over two years ago, we decided to check out the local scene and check out some of the area’s breweries. Triangle breweries have become a big name in the craft beer world in recent years, there are now more breweries than you can count on your fingers and toes. With pop-up breweries happening almost seemingly overnight, the Triangle has really had a boom in craft beer, almost tying with Asheville in number of breweries!

There is something alluring about the industrial/trendy feel of a brewery that entices all types of different people. Family and dog friendly environments with scattered board games, food trucks and live music, it’s pretty much my personal version of heaven on Earth. It’s really cool that you can spend a nice Saturday afternoon, with dogs in tow, on a patio playing connect four and drinking a pint of quality beer – all while a 4-year old’s birthday is taking place two tables over.

Since we started this tradition of visiting breweries, we’ve been to around 76 breweries throughout the United States. Not only does the Triangle get “Best Places to Live,” but we have to admit, most of our favorite breweries are right here.

Our top 5 Triangle picks are: Ponysaurus in Durham, Draftline in Fuquay-Varina, Trophy Brewing in Raleigh, Gizmo Brewing in Raleigh, and Fullsteam Brewery in Durham.
