From breweries to bottle shops, there's so many great options to grab a drink, whether it's a first date or your fiftieth. Here are five of our favorite spots to visit for your next beer-centric date night.
Vibe: While the taproom and patio at Catawba are pretty large, they make it easy to find a place of your own. Grab a table to yourselves away from the crowd or grab a seat at the bar and catch up with your date over a cold one.
Drink to try: Limited-release Evening Joe Coffee Blonde, because it's like going to a coffee shop, but with beer.
Vibe: Hyde Brewing's tap room is bright, airy, and filled with tons of beautiful greenery. Their space is shared with The Suffolk Punch, which makes it a great spot to grab wine, cocktails, or coffee if you're looking to venture out from beer. There's even food if you want to grab a bite!
Drink to try: Blue Daisy, because who said dates need to involve real flowers?
Vibe: NoDa's location is the perfect combination of indoors and outdoors space. Stop by for a daytime date to play a little corn hole or disc golf before making your way inside to the taproom.
Drink to try: Coco Loco Porter, because what's a date without a little chocolate?
Vibe: This is quite possibly the cutest coffee-shop-slash-bottle-shop that ever existed. The space is intimate and romantic, which makes for the perfect spot to cuddle up next to your beau.
Drink to try: El Comado: Chinola, because it's a uniquely fruity beer with tons of character. For any non-beer drinkers, stop by on Wednesday's from 6:30 to 8:30 PM for Wine Down Wednesdays. Enjoy a sample of five wines for $7 or half-priced bottles of wine.
Vibe: Legion Brewing is the perfect hometown brewery to take someone on a date. Large enough to be able to grab tabl, but just small enough to have a private conversation. It's the perfect relaxed atmosphere for a casual date.
Drink to try: Stay a Little Lager (Hoppy Lager), because that's what you're going to want to do when you're date is going so well.
