No trip to Chapel Hill is complete unless you visit the Carolina Brewery. Good beer, great food and good service in a fun atmosphere.

Ended up at Carolina Brewery as we were looking for a place of fun, food & drinks. Fortunately, that was the $2/beer night. Very good Staff and food was great! This is the kind of place you need when you go out with Friends.
