Not primarily a "beer bar", but always has some good taps and bottles that you may not find at the likes of uber-tapped Flying Saucer. Good for a quiet lunch when you are not into ogling the kilts too. Dinner can get loud and close, but I'm not Wikileaks either. (The 518 is louder.)
The Polish/German riff on the food is great. The barkeeps friendly. An owner/principal is usually on site keeping things running smoothly.
As gemutlich as is gets for Raleigh.

J Betski's is sort of a fusion German restaurant located across from Logan Trading Company just North of downtown Raleigh. The place is well lit and airy, but when filled to capacity you can't even hear yourself think in here. This really is not a beer bar, more of a restaurant with some great German imports served in appropriate glassware.

The food is bordering on outstanding and the service is 100% top notch. The prices certainly would put a strain on any beer budget, but there ain't nothing like a liter of Aventinus after dinner.

Stop into Betski's, but bring the wallet and if you don't go early a reservation might be in order on the weekend. If it's packed inside, bring some earplugs to keep the noise down, or be prepared to shout to carry on a conversation. Depending upon where you sit, your table may be uncomfortably close to the person next to you. Great for striking up conversation, lousy for private conversation.
