Students, townsfolk, alumni and tourists gather at Top of the Hill in Chapel Hill for outstanding beer and delicious food. (Try the wild mushroom grit cakes in a creamy rosemary sauce.) Giant beer vats are visible behind glass walls in the dining room, and an outside patio area overlooks Franklin Street. Top of the Hill has been consistently good since opening about 20 years ago, before anyone used the term "brewpub."
