Brewmasters makes "Best Beer Bar" list

Posted By on Tue, Jun 24, 2014 at 4:19 PM

The good folks at Thrillist made a list this week, as they often do, and showed a Raleigh bar some love. The "Digital lifestyle for men" site names "The 33 Best Beer Bars in the U.S." and included Brewmasters on that honor roll. They excluded breweries and focused on bars with a wide variety of offerings, although a quality menu trumped more extensive collections of lesser beers in their decision-making.

At last night's meeting Coucil referred both sites back to the Raleigh Historic Development Commission for further review. No one from the public spoke for or against the proposal. The City Council’s referral is standard practice, according to Martha Lauer, executive director of the Raleigh Historic Development Commission. Lauer also said the hearing’s attendance was “pretty typical.” “If you’re in favor of something, what’s to comment?” Lauer said. The Mecca Restaurant, 13 E. Martin St., in Raleigh opened in 1935....
