Although I'm a teetotaler (almost) I wanted to take our friend and my former colleague who was visiting to one of the local breweries for which Raleigh is becoming rather well-know. Steve, a chemist, now lives in New Jersey, and he has been microbrewing since he was in Durham almost twenty years ago.

We visited downtown Durham and downtown Raleigh so he could see the changes that have occurred since he left the area. We had lunch at Sitti's (Steve always knew where the best restaurants were), toured the new library on Centennial Campus at NC State, and had homemade ice cream at Local Fresh.

I was certain he would enjoy visiting one of the local breweries. Not knowing much about beer and nothing about the local microbrewers, I checked the internet and found what seemed to be a good bet in the Lonerider Brewing Company.
There is no food at Lonerider, but often there is a food truck out front as there was when we were there.
