330 West Davie Street, Raleigh
Kick-the-keg specials—in which the surviving remnants of a certain draft beer are offered at a discount in order to make room for another round, much like an end-of-season sale at a clothing store—usually aren't all that special. But how about a kick-the-keg with interesting beer and free air hockey? Raleigh's Boxcar has an aggressive craft beer selection, with surprising sours and seasonals tucked into a thoughtful stock of IPAs, lagers, and the like. On Monday nights, many of the most curious selections go for $3 a pint—the same night of a free weekly air hockey tournament that brings in some rather competitive players. And the more you drink, the more you help the crowd on Tuesday night, when all taps go for $3; if you get the dregs on the old kegs, they get dibs on the new stuff.
