Nano Brewery and Pizzeria off the Beaten Path in Raleigh
Nestled in downtown Raleigh in an area that could have easily gone forgotten sits Trophy Brewery. This nano brewery, bar and pizza joint puts this location that used to house a bail bondsman and greasy spoon back on the map with some of the best small batch beer in town. Plus the pizza is pretty tasty too.
The interior is cozy with a bar that seats over a dozen people and a slew of first-come, first-serve seats. They also offer an enclosed patio and an outdoor patio space with even more seating. Shelves full of trophies, the brewery's namesake, line the walls and lend the establishment a kitschy feel without being cheesy. Numerous chalkboards throughout the place highlight beers with names like "Best in Show", "Biggest Flirt" and "Teacher's Pet". Meanwhile the menu is filled with specialty pizzas named "Most Outgoing", "Best Dressed" and "Most Loyal".
Whether you're looking for a pint of top class beer, delicious pizza or salads, you'll find them all here. Sit down at the comfortable bar and you'll feel right at home with the loyal, local, yet inclusive crowd. Fill up a 32oz. growler to go and share it with friends. This locale may have been sleepy and unknown for awhile, but the word is spreading quick that Trophy Brewing is one of the best hidden secrets in Raleigh.
