Brewery Profile: Oak & Dagger Public House

We tried a selection of Oak & Dagger beers, including the beer that won in the 2017 U.S. Beer Championship.

Oak & Dagger Public House
18 Seaboard Avenue, Suite 150, Raleigh

Oak & Dagger Public House recently won a bronze medal at the 2017 U.S. Beer Championship awards for its "When Life Gives you Hops, Make Lemons" beer. This beer won in the "Gluten-Free" category. Other Triangle-area breweries that won awards featured Crank Arm, Fullsteam, Mystery, Lonerider, White Street and Fortnight. Raleigh's own Lynnwood Brewing Concern ranked 3rd overall, winning three medals – 2 gold and 1 bronze.

Along with our good friend, Paul Prause, we made a stop at Oak & Dagger prior to the award for our next installment of our Brewery Profile. During our stop we were fortunate to actually try the award winning before and both thought it was done well.
