Introducing the Tap Yard Raleigh Beer Garden, the newest hangout for Raleigh!
Join us for our Grand Opening on March 25–a daylong festival of fun, food, drinks, games and music.
The Tap Yard is a true hangout–a neighborhood bar, beer garden and music venue. With over an acre of outdoor space and two big inside bars, Tap Yard has something for everyone. Bring the whole family, including your furry friends, and see what Tap Yard is all about.
Our Day Starts with Yoga
The Grand Opening begins with a relaxing yoga session by Arrichion East Raleigh at 11 a.m. At noon, you can grab a drink from one of the bars, then visit one of over a dozen local artisans at our indoor / outdoor “street” vendor market. Watch the game on one of our many TVs or on our humongous 150” projection screen. You can pick up a delicious lunch or dinner from the TnT Fish & Chicken Food Truck or snack on a charcuterie box from Grazin’ Gals–and don’t forget to treat your four-legged friends to a pint of Mason’s Dog Beer, a concoction so good they won’t know it’s alcohol-free.
Kids Are Welcome – Family Friendly Event
Keep the kids entertained with our Spiderman Pinball machine and arcade games. Take the little ones on a trolley ride for storytime during one of three Great Raleigh Trolley hour-long Read & Ride Tours. They can even get their faces painted for free by Free Spirited Artistry.
Live Music Starting around 5PM
The festivities will be capped off by live music from some of Raleigh’s hottest bands. Relax at one of our firepits and enjoy the afternoon with a refreshing beer, your favorite cocktail or fresh-squeezed lemonade. At 5 p.m, Raleigh DIY Influencer Philip or Flop will host our ceremonial ribbon cutting on stage inside Tap Yard hall. Then at 5:15, show off your trivia skills with a thrilling Hammered Trivia Lightning Round in the beer garden’s event tent.
More Details Forth Coming
More details and a full vendor lineup will be announced closer to the Grand Opening so stay tuned and make sure to mark your calendars for March 25. Come on down to Tap Yard, bring your family and friends, and let’s make Tap Yard’s Grand Opening a day to remember! 🎶🍻 #TapYardGrandOpening #BeerGarden #RaleighCommunity
