Raleigh has a wealth of breweries and brew pubs and plenty of beer-focused-bars dot the city. Of all those, the Busy Bee's passion and leadership has been an inspiration to the larger beer enthusiast community since it first opened 3 years ago. From collaborations with their favorite breweries, to organizing Raleigh's unique beer week events, Busy Bee has been the hub for a flourishing community of folks who love beer and its many variations. The owners, David Meeker, David Lockwood and Chris Powers are now taking that success to a new venture in the former Burger Hut location on Morgan street.

The new project is called Trophy Brewing Company, and its a small craft brew pub that will be the backdrop of some of the most sophisticated brewing in the area. For the owners this is a chance to work with brewer Les Stewart to create beers of their wildest dreams. For the team the small brewery setup is an opportunity and an advantage. The inherant low risk of small batches means lots of experimentation from a thoroughly educated team. Trophy expects to be aging beers from the beginning and they are collaborating with Quest Brewing of Greenville Sounth Carolina on something special. In addition to their own beers Trophy will offer a full liquor bar and a selection of wine.
You can taste Trophy's offerings at a preview tasting at the Hive on January 9th and Tyler Tap Room's Rare and Vintage Beer Fest on January 26th. The team expects to be able to open Trophy by the end of the month.
Trophy will be located at 827 W. Morgan street, in the former Burger Hut Location.
