Salute local craft brewers at the Oklahoma Craft Beer Summit at Tower Theatre in OKC.
Attendees can expect everything from educational seminars to special glassware sales and, of course, beer tastings from more than 20 state brewers. You can also walk away with a swag bag filled with goodies from sponsors and brewers.
“The summit was originally designed by local craft beer bar Oak and Ore to attract the attention of Oklahoma lawmakers, in hopes of advancing legal changes to the beer industry, while also raising funds for the Craft Brewers Association of Oklahoma, which is dedicated to furthering those changes,” the event’s website says. “With the … passage of Oklahoma Senate Bill 424, brewers across the state are … able to serve all beers, both low- and high-point, directly to the public from their own taprooms.”
A pre-conference party takes place at the Prairie Artisan Ales taproom from 6 to 9 p.m. Aug. 10. The summit runs 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Aug. 11, and Oak and Ore offers 20 percent off brunch the next morning with proof of summit attendance.
