R&D Brewing is a team of beer industry veterans with over 150 years of beer experience.
In 2017 we constructed a 3.5 bbl pilot brewing system to research, develop and gain feedback from our many connections within our community. The system created a space for innovation and creativity that allowed us to produce award-winning beers. We received a Gold Medal for the Bock and a Bronze for the Mexican Lager at the 2018 U.S. Open Beer Championship. Seven Saturdays IPA & Riviera Lager received Silver medals in the American IPA and International Style Pilsner Lager categories at the 2019 U.S. Open Beer Championship. Remix took home the bronze medal in the fruit IPA category. Our portfolio has expanded to include the Official Team Beers of the Carolina Hurricanes and Wake Forest University.
That commitment to creating the perfect beer is the driving force behind our recent 20 bbl brewhouse upgrade with plans to continue expanding operations in a new 30,000+ square foot production facility located in Raleigh, N.C. that will include a taproom and outdoor beer garden.
Our most recent project, the Seven Saturdays Tap Room, opened its doors in February of 2022. We look forward to you joining us there for a delicious R&D Brewing beer.
