With the recent addition of Wegmans and McNeill Pointe (Chido Taco, Shuckin Shack), the Wake Forest Road corridor has been booming with construction lately! A recent addition to the scene is the newish, Bowyard Pizza and Brewyard located just south of E. Whitaker Mill Road. The entrance to Bowyard is pretty tricky, a small entryway between Tobola Automotive and StorageMax. Thankfully they’ve added some permanent signage there. Drop down into the gravel lot and you’ll find a small building to your left along with two side patios. There’s also a larger lawn and gaming area decked out with picnic tables, umbrellas and cornhole for when the weather is better.
Serving up craft beer, cocktails and pizza, the scene at Bowstring is pretty casual and young but an interesting spot with interesting decor inside. They are currently partnering with Vic’s Pizzeria pizza bus for their pies. Like many businesses that have opened up during the COVID pandemic, they are still figuring things out. But definitely stop by for a visit if you’re in the area. I’ll add to this post after I’ve had time to come for a couple of visits.
