Brewfest 2018

2018 BrewFest

To say the craft beer scene in Oklahoma City has taken off the last couple of years would be an understatement. Recent changes to the state’s liquor laws have done nothing but turbo charge the creation of great breweries, wineries and distilleries in the metro. Brewfest, an annual showcase of Oklahoma breweries, is a great chance to sample the newest stuff from your favorite brewers.

Brewfest is put on by the OKBio Association to help raise awareness of the state’s diverse bioscience industry. This year’s event is Thursday, Nov. 8 from 5 to 7 p.m., at the Chickasaw Bricktown Ballpark. Admission is $35 and includes a mug, t-shirt, unlimited samples and free parking. You can get your tickets here. Of course you must be 21 to enter.

One of the best aspects of Brewfest is that attendance is limited to 500. That means you have plenty of face-to-face opportunities with the people who are making the great beers and spirits in Oklahoma. You can pick their brains on their process, what is on the horizon or even what foods they think their beers pair best with.

While it is called Brewfest don’t be scared away if you are not a fan of beer. A handful of local wineries and distillers will also be in attendance. At last count, more than 30 local breweries, distillers and wineries will be on hand.

So on November 8, sample some amazing local beers, wines and spirits while supporting the state’s burgeoning bioscience community. You can learn more about the event here and more about the biosciences here.

Bottoms up

Friends enjoying beer

Oklahoma has undergone a recent renaissance of craft breweries finding their niche in OKC. This can be traced to a new wave of favorable legislation allowing breweries to sell their beer directly to customers at the breweries’ location, and an upcoming extension (October) of sale hours until 2 a.m. rather than closing at 9 p.m. Some of the nationally known local breweries include Coop Ale Works, Anthem Brewing Company, Black Mesa Brewing Company and Prairie Artisan Ales. Coop, Anthem, Prairie and Twisted Spike Brewery each have local taprooms located throughout OKC.

Oklahoma brewers have been working in unison to keep the momentum going in establishing The Brewers Union taproom in west OKC, where you can sample a wide variety of the beers brewed at the facility. Among the up-and-coming brewers associated in the Union’s taproom are Elk Valley Brewing, Vanessa House Beer Co. and Angry Scotsman Brewing, all three of which have their own future local taprooms “on tap” and in development.

Further options of both widely popular local and national brews in OKC can be experienced at Bricktown Brewery, Belle Isle Restaurant & Brewery, McNellie’s Pub House, Fassler Hall, TapWerks and others.

Brewfest

2017 Brew Fest

One of our favorite trends in Oklahoma City is how many craft breweries are popping up around town. It is getting to the point that keeping up with the latest great suds is getting difficult. The good news is we know of an event where you can try out products from all the local breweries as well as local wineries and distilleries.

The Oklahoma Bioscience Association’s annual BrewFest will take place Nov. 9 at the Chickasaw Bricktown Ballpark. Tickets are $35 and get you a mug, t-shirt (if you are one of the first 300 registered), free parking and, best of all, unlimited samples of local beer, wine and spirits. This year’s event will have nearly 30 local purveyors of tasty beer and spirits.

Turkey turkey turkey, can’t you see, sometimes your tryptophan just hypnotizes me. However, if you’re among the sort whose holiday family dinners typically incite imbibing a beer or two rather than a nap (no judging, we feel ya), consider checking out some of OKC’s fantastic locally-produced beer at a brewery or restaurant near you.
