What's On Tap

About Us

Downtown Durham is full of great places to eat and entertain yourself and The Bullpen is right in the center of it all. In late 2016, Bull Durham Beer Co. created a taproom in the shadow of the Durham Bulls Athletic Park. If you need somewhere to gather everyone together and have a pre-game drink, or if you want to celebrate a Bulls win, we’re the place.

The Bullpen is also right next to the Durham Performing Arts Center and the American Tobacco Campus, so it’s convenient to the best nightlife in town. With a great location, Bull Durham Beer Co.’s locally-crafted brews, live music, and a Classic Pinball Arcade, make sure you visit The Bullpen next time you’re in town.

Coming Soon to The Bullpen!!!
