Mmm, beer.

Posted by: Greater Oklahoma City Chamber on Tuesday, August 18, 2015 at 12:00:00 am

The microbrewery scene is hot hot hot in OKC, which means tons tons tons of cold brews to enjoy. Here are just a few of our favorites from each of the OKC-area breweries:

405 Brewing – Straight outta Norman and perhaps the newest brewery around these days, the quality of beer belies their new-kid-on-the-block status. We particularly enjoyed the Little Heart Breaker, a fantastic smooth stout, and have heard good things about the FDR. We’re also on the lookout for the Grapefruit Sour!

Anthem – We like everything we’ve had the pleasure of putting to our lips from Anthem, but especially the Arjuna, a Belgian-style wit with lots of tasty complexity, and the rich, luxurious Uroboros stout. Also the Upper 90 (American Pale Ale) is a must if you’re at the OKC Energy match.

Battered Boar – Good gourdy! TBL staff proclaim the Pumpkin Ale worthy of drinking more often than just around Halloween. We’re also anxiously awaiting the chance to try the Coconut Cream Stout.

Black Mesa – You can’t go wrong with the Blonde, but we also really like the ESB – this is a must-try for its ability to mix smoothness and bitterness into one tasty, frosty glass. A great thirst-quencher for both hot and cold days.

COOP – Lots of great tastes to be had from COOP, but we like the Elevator Wheat and the Horny Toad, as well as the F5 IPA. Of course, the DNR is legendary and a must-drink (if you’re not driving). COOP also has a selection of “3.2” beers that are cold and ready to go at the grocery store, so you’ve got no more excuses for that Natty!

Elk Valley – One of the newer breweries to hit the scene (along with 405), Elk Valley made us want more with their Mashie (a Scottish Wee Heavy with lots of great toffee and malt flavors) and the Nemesis Imperial Stout (hey, we like stouts, OK?) .

Huebert – They make the legendary Rock-Hard Root Beer. That’s right. You can thank us later. Next on our To-Drink List: Rock Hard Orange Cream.

Mustang – The Washita Wheat (made with Oklahoma Red wheat) is our everyday go-to choice, but we also particularly enjoy the Rocket Fuel, a strong mélange of hoppy malty goodness, and the grassy, slightly citrusy Farmhouse Ale. We only wish the Session ’33 would return to the grocery store shelves (hint, hint!).

Roughtail – the 12th Round is fantastic, a hoppy yet smooth-drinking strong ale, and the Polar Night will send you to bed a happy stout lover. Speaking of stouts, the Coffee Tsar is a must-drink if you can find it for you dark beer fans.

Don’t see your favorite? Hey, give us a break you craft beer aficionado you—new ones are seemingly popping up every day, so let us know what we are missing!
