Been here a couple times. Went on Friday night and was disappointed. 10 or 12 taps, practically all of them were ale, pale ale, IPA, DIPA. One cider, one saison I think. Zero stouts or porters. Pet peeve when I got to a bar and...More

Have been here before and decided to give it a second chance. We love the location, people and the vibe, unfortunately the beers are just poor in taste. The four of us tried all their offerings and none were anything we would try again....

Lovely friendly bar with an eclectic choice of in bar brews. Frugal decor doesn't detract. In milder weather very popular front patio. Friendly patrons of all ages. Trivia competitions regularly. Easy parking.

Steel String has fantastic customer service. Very friendly and very knowledgeable about the brewing process as well as how tastes compare to other beers of a similar kind. The IPAs are a speciality but the coffee stout has stands out from other craft beers of...More

Started by three UNC grads who once played in a bluegrass band, Steel String offers some of the best craft beers in the Triangle. Most of them have names taken from bluegrass like Big Mon and Tom Dooley. Crowds of college students and rather basic...More

Steel String brews beer on site and offers four or five of their own brews along with a few rotating guest taps. They're always trying something new, interesting, and well made. The only food they offer is cashews and peanuts, but that means you can...More
