Some 50 brewers will pour samples of more than 200 beers Saturday at the third annual Oklahoma Craft Beer Festival. Sponsored by TapWerks and the Oklahoma Craft Brewers Guild, the outdoor event will be at TapWerks, 121 E. Sheridan, and feature food and live music.
At least two Oklahoma breweries will offer new or limited-edition beers. Marshall Brewing Company will release its fifth-anniversary ale, a whiskey-barrel aged Imperial Red Ale, simply called 5. In addition, participants will get a chance to sample Oklahoma’s newest craft brewery, Dead Armadillo.
Local favorites Black Mesa Brewing Company, COOP Ale Works and Mustang Brewing Company will be represented, as well as Tulsa-based Prairie Artisan Ales and Krebs-based Choc Beer Company.
Attendees can sample craft beers from across the U.S., including Left Hand, Flying Dog and Great Divide.
For the first time, event organizers are offering designated driver tickets allowing the holder free access to the music and food, as well as a voucher for a free meal at one of the event’s food vendors: Earl’s Rib Palace and Big Truck Tacos.
