Crafty Beer Shop carries the best of national and international craft beer, while keeping a focus on the North Carolina beer offerings. We have two locations – one in Five Points in Raleigh (which also has De-Vine Wine bar) and one in Lafayette Village in North Raleigh.


We have 8-16 different beers on tap at all times, rotating stock and access to the best beers in NC and the world. We sell all of our beer by the bottle so you can feel free to choose what YOU want to take home. With a relaxing coffee shop vibe and DOG-FRIENDLY, offering free wifi and an inviting and comfortable beer bar to go along with a neighborhood feel, Crafty is a great spot to go after work or to finish your work, meet friends, watch a game, have a meeting, hang out on the weekend or for a night out.


We also strive to support the local community – we offer local snack items, display local artists work, and often feature local musicians. If you know any artists/musicians that would like to be part of the Crafty family, let us know! Crafty caters to the newbie to the craft beer scene as well as craft beer veterans. If we don’t have it, let us know and we’ll try to get it! We look forward to serving and getting to know you. Come and Experience the Craft!
