Great Beer
Sanskrit for cultivating, the seed of Brewery Bhavana was born from within our community of makers and dreamers with a shared vision: to create community through our humble offerings.

Rooted in the historic Moore Square Park in downtown Raleigh, Brewery Bhavana is a gathering place celebrating communal beer experiences that exhibit the hand of the maker. Brewery, dim sum restaurant, flower shop, and bookstore, Bhavana is our love letter to a community that has given us so much.

We look forward to seeing you!

A friend recommended this place and ever since, I've been looking forward to dining here: I was not disappointed! Firstly, the staff was overly accommodating to us as we added a couple of stragglers to our group at the last minute. The food was delicious, may I suggest to dine with a group to sample more of the menu? I recommend the spicy margarita if you're going to enjoy a beverage. We had a large enough group such that we got the duck, along with other small plates. Everything was delicious and I am now looking forward to dining at their sibling restaurant Bida Manda!

The BEST meal I've had in the state of NC! Super attentive and knowledgeable wait staff who helped us order based on our preferences.

I wish all wait staff in the world could be trained by Brewery Bhavana. Liv was the best.

Beautiful brewery & restaurant. Even if you don't like craft beer, there are cocktails but the food was the highlight. Great restaurant for groups so you can share several of the dishes. Favorites included - seafood dumplings, peking duck, cucumbers and the char sui bao.

Service could have been better. I believe our waitress forgot about us for a while. Did not check on us for an extended period of time. Food and drinks were great.

Brewery Bhavana never disappoints. We got there early because the ballet ended sooner than we thought and they were able to seat us immediately. Our waiter was fabulous and gave us very good recommendations. This is one of my favorite restaurants!

Really great meal for anniversary. They even brought champagne to the table,very nice touch. I rated 4 starts for ambiance for the loud noise level and due to the very tiny table. We had a hard time hearing our server. We couldn't fit everything on the table and kept having to rearrange (for context, we had appetizers, drinks, and an entree). The food was excellent!! As was th beer. Highly recommend.

We were disappointed with Bhavana Brewery. The food was fine, but nothing special, and a bit more expensive than other restaurants with similar options. can't see what all the fuss is about.

Our waiter was stretched way too thin. “Forgot” about us twice and never apologized. We frequent BB and have never had a complaint until this night. It was our anniversary so a little let down. The food was amazing, as always. There were no shortage of wait staff so not sure what happened.

Fun atmosphere but was not blown away by the food or beer. Not bad just not sure where all the hype is coming from. We shared 4 small bites plus a larger entree and enjoyed them all but nothing was remarkable. As for the beer, we are IPA drinkers and tried 4 IPAs that night. They all tasted more like a pilsner and similar in their fruity profile. Not the hoppy beer we were hoping for but it did go well with the food. This might be a fun place with a large group but I won't be making reservations weeks in advance again for just a date night.

I really enjoyed this restaurant. The food was delicious and I loved the layout of the place. The idea of mixing a bookstore and a brewery is very interesting. Some of the tables are separated with light curtains which makes your dinner experience feel private in such a busy place. My only negative comments about the place is that they should provide quality chopsticks, not the ones from takeout places and the bill should be given in a nice fashion that fits the style of the place, like in a book or something rather than just put on the table. Otherwise greater experience would recommend for a fancy night out.
