Inspired by the styles of the moment and traditions of the past, Oklahoma’s bold and innovative brewmasters have carved out a unique place in a crowded field—and they don’t seem to be slowing down any time soon. Take a tour of some of the state’s most buzzed-about breweries and see what’s on tap in the Sooner State.
If you haven’t had an Oklahoma-brewed craft beer yet, you’re in for a delicious and wide-ranging flavor journey. Oklahoma is quickly becoming a leader in the nation-wide movement of small breweries producing beers with greater complexity, strength and variety. Sample a light, refreshing Belgian-style summer ale or a strong imperial stout; an intense, aromatic pale ale or a smooth, well-balanced amber, all made right here in the Sooner State.
Inspired by the plateaus of Black Mesa, the northern prairies, local sports teams and more, these breweries wear their state pride on their sleeves. Make sure to keep an eye out for the many seasonal and limited brews that come out throughout the year. Many bars and restaurants host tasting events, and more and more breweries are offering brewery tours and a taproom for special tastings.
