The Patriarch - Craft Beer House & Lawn
If enjoying a fine American craft beer in a homey atmosphere with great outdoor seating sounds like a great time to you then the Patriarch Craft Beer House & Lawn is just the place you're looking for. Located in Edmond, The Patriarch is, in fact, located in a house that's well over 100 years old. The "Hunt House" was built in 1903 and has been completely restored to accommodate this innovative beer bar with some of the best outdoor seating in the area.
The main feature at the Patriarch is of course the beer, with 48 taps (and over two dozen more in bottles) flowing with the best American craft breweries have to offer. Among these are a wide selection of craft beers brewed right here in Oklahoma. A modest selection of whiskeys and wines are available to those who aren't in the beer drinking mood.
Enjoy the charms of the three-story house while you sip your beer or enjoy a beautiful evening on the beautiful back lawn. Furnished with long beer hall style tables, the lawn is a great place to indulge in any number of lawn games like Baggo and ping pong. While the Patriarch does not serve food, they do provide a spot for local food trucks to set up shop behind the lawn. So, if you need a bite to eat, you don't even have to close your tab to enjoy a tasty meal.
