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!

I've been to Brewery Bhavana twice now and have been blown away each time. The food and service was absolutely spectacular, I would recommend this restaurant to anybody visiting the Raleigh area.

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.

The atmosphere and food are all well above par. It’s a bit of a pricey lunch but worth it on occasion.

Fantastic food, great service, great beer; no complaints whatsoever. It was a little noisy but that is to be expected from such a busy establishment. Great place, will recommend to all my friends.

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.

This is probably my 10th time there, and I brought my extended family with me this time for my mom's birthday - BB never disappoints and they all agree!

What a great combination of upscale Chinese food and dim sum with an outstanding book selection. If they had CDs I'd probably move in!

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.

One of my favorite restaurants in Raleigh. I would eat here a few times a week if I could. Love the scallion pancakes and the seafood dumplings. I have dined here 4 times now and everything is always delicious!

Ambiance was nice on a Sunday afternoon . Our server was pleasant but not super knowledgeable about all the dishes served. I thought the Rice Conghee was waaaay salty as was a lot of the dishes we had. I hated to do it but I cut the soup w adding some of my water. They were out of sangria so no cucumber sangria. Got the Lucky Star and had too much lime juice🙁
Vegetable puffs were really delicious!

Our server, Hannah, was excellent. Feel free to ask to sit in her section. Seafood dumplings and the Borean Lager were the stars of our meal. Don't miss a chance to try this place.

We stumbled across Brewery Bhavana Spring of 2018, while looking at colleges with our son. The food was amazing; during a late lunch on a Friday afternoon.
We've been trying to make it work to get back here since, now that our son goes to Elon University. Finally made it happen, and we had some friends with us as well.
The food, service, everything was nothing short of AMAZING!

Wanted to try something new and unique, so my fiance and I ordered the scallion pancakes that uses bone marrow, absolutely amazing. Might be my favorite dish in Raleigh. Also ordered the beef w/ longhorn peppers, very spicy but that's exactly what I wanted. Food was cooked perfectly and flavorful. Service and ambiance were top notch. We will be coming back.
