Bowstring Pizza
and Brewyard

About us

We have discovered a unique space unlike any other in Raleigh. Named after the “bowstring-trusse” ceilings famous in the 1920s, we converted an old Gulf Oil crude barrel storage garage into a space with tables, games, and a large service bar.

A collaboration between Ben Yannessa, Brad Bowles, Matt Golden, Bowstring Pizza, and Brewyard is now open and ready to welcome all to our local neighborhood hangout. We have outfitted our property with hand sanitizer stations, socially-distant table setups, and masks available for customers. Situated over an acre of property, we have plenty of space, plenty of cold drinks, and plenty of pizza for everyone to enjoy.
Located near historic Five Points and what is quickly becoming "brewery row", Bowstring is located on Wake Forest Rd. near the intersection of Whitaker Mill Rd. Easy access to our parking lot from a turning lane on Wake Forest Rd., we have plentiful parking but also encourage Uber/Lyft.
