A large brewery with a restaurant downstairs and a larger bar and dance area up stairs. The place seems like is caught in between what it wants to be... Service has been a bit slow on my few visits. Six taps available with one that is rotating, the beer is subpar overall. Food is good, pretty standard for a brewpub. Prices are fine for the area, but I donít really stop in except to tick.

Well, not much good to say about this place. Beers were not that good and neither was service. Skip this place and head to the Tapwerks Bricktown.

This place in OKC gets it for the food - at least, the Brewerís Club sandwich which was a knockout. Also consumed, an equally delicious Grilled Salmon Club. On a Tuesday evening, the kitchen should not have been so slow..plus a lot of training going on.

Service was a problem as it was standing room only for about 2 hours before we were granted a small table. Service was as lousy as the wait and I had about two beers before I was determined to move to less crowded accomodations. Upstairs area was limited seating and had a similar sardine-feeling as experienced downstairs. Waiter having a bad day probably did not improve the situation. What do you know, I havenít been back since.

I believe most of the beer here was 3.2pct or lower. Even if it wasnít, this beer was the worst, nothing close to fully attenuated product, astringency party masked by sugary leftover malts, and a bar tender that was annoying as all get out (and drunk). Did not have the food, but based on the beer, I didnít want any. Too bad we commited to the growler before drinking a glass, because what was leftover and taken home never got consumed.

I had not stepped inside The Bricktown Brewery in years because of the awful beer. I seek out brewpubs everywhere I travel; to avoid one in my own state is unusual. In fact, my recommendation to out of state beer seekers is, "Any of the brewpubs except Bricktown."
This week, however, my company hosted an end of quarter event at The Bricktown Brewery. Out of principle I ordered the Light Amber hoping to be proved wrong. I coulnít finish the pint. There are so many flaws with the beer I do not know where to begin. Flat, lifeless, sour, overload of diacetyl, tastes of Lemon Pledge. To add insult to injury, my coworker ordered the dark ale (brown ale or stout, Iím not sure). It was served to him in a frosted glass!
Advertisements for The Bricktown Brewery included nightly drink specials, military discounts, ladies night, live music, theme nights hosted by local radio stations, etc. The only mention of craft beer is found in the restaurantís name.
I do not recommend any of craft beers at The Bricktown Brewery. I am embarrassed to think that visitors to Oklahoma City are more likely to visit The Bricktown Brewery rather than any other brewpub in the city. The restaurantís location seems to be the only thing it has going for it.

Visited on a Monday afternoon before a Hornets game. Nice place. Beers were okay, but nothing was spectacular. Beer prices were fantastic: $1.50 for a draw and $1.50 for a sampler. The only thing that was disturbing was the fact that there were birds flying around inside the area with the brew kettles and fermentation tanks. I imagine this is a pretty fun place to hang out on a weeknight.

So there was a scene in "A Bugís Life" where the one fly is warned to look away from the bug light and he says as he flies to his death "I caaaannnít help it". Thatís kind of how I was when stopping in Bricktown and this place was within walking distance of my hotel. I didnít end up much better than the fly. They had 5 beers on tap, I tried the sampler. The copperhead was a light amber, it was infected and horrible. The wheat was a bit light in body and flavor but reasonably clean. The pilsner was a seasonal that was actually pretty decent, a touch high on the alcohol but a decent lager. The brown ale was another seasonal that was bitter due to astringency, lacked the darker malt characters and had no sweetness to balance the bitterness. The Black Gold was described as "a porter or stout, but thereís not much difference between the two." It was very light, infected, and just plain bad. Service was good and attentive. The chicken quesedilla was decent and my kid really liked the chocolate cake.

Well, I didnít expect much from this place when I went in to try it out, but I think even less of it now. Only four of their beers were on tap, and as I looked around I saw almost everyone in the place drinking BMCs. I should have figured it out right there. But no, as a true beer connoisseur, I decided to give the sampler a go. The beers were just plain bad, with too much water and too little ingredients. The burger I had there was decent, but there are not too many ways you could screw up a burger. Prices were not too steep, and I think the beer sampler only cost about $1.50, which was more than reasonable. Definitely an older crowd, in which I did not fit in at all.
