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 don’t really stop in except to tick.
Visited after dinner on a Friday. Located in the Bricktown area of downtown OKC, in a classic building. Main room is big, with a lot of dark wood. The bar area is up a couple of steps to the left, and features seats at the bar or adjacent bar tables. Beer selection is 7 house beers, all 4.0 abv per some weirdo Oklahoma law (which I believe is changing soon). Shaker pours, or growlers to go. Additionally, there are a bunch of guests in bottles and cans, which are not subject to the ABV cap. Slow service, despite not being particularly busy. This reminded me of what brewpubs were like in the mid-90s.
64 = ★★ (Just ok)
I only use the total score, not the component parts.
Nice building, on the corner in the middle of the tourist area. Medium sized bar. Flights include all eight of their beers, although they were out of the brown ale when I visited. Some beers had significant faults. Others were OK. Service was very polite and friendly. Cheap. Didn’t try the food. Oh well.
Visited on 2-17-2013. Their beers are 3.2ABV per Oklahoma law. They had five of their own beer plus brewers pick. They have 39 bottled beers on their Guest list. The establishment is clean, nice atmosphere and a friendly staff. The food was average.
A regional chain brewpub that offers beers of questionable quality at decent prices. Sort of like the Oklahoma version of Bosco’s. The place is large, with plenty of space dedicated to food service. A sizable brew kit (who knows if they actually brew here) is visible behind the bar. I tried a flight of house beers and was generally unimpressed. My bartender was pretty nice, but not all that knowledgeable about the beers on offer. This place really is only of appeal unless you want some cheap ticks that score in the middle-2 range. Overall, maybe worth a stop. It’s really close to TapWerks, so it’s not much extra effort to visit.
This place in OKC gets it for the food - at least, the Brewer’s 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 haven’t been back since.
