Visited this place whilst on business in OKC. Located in the Bricktown area, it seems to be quite the jumping place. Was fairly crowded on a Monday night. This is a two leveled saloon like atmosphere with a huge bar ont he right as you enter. There were a good 100+ taps that I saw plus more in the bottles. While there was nothing too extraordinary, there were a lot. The beer list read more like a best of the 70's rock mix. You know all the songs, but some of them are classics.

That said I was pleased to try a Choc 1919 as I always search out the local whether it is food or beer. If memory serves me correct, I also had a Fullers Porter, Bridgetown IPA and some Rogue. There were other beers from Rogue, Boulder, Unibroue, Spaten and Boulevard. Like I said, lots of choice but nothing you haven't had before. Everything I had did taste fresh.

The service was excellent. While the bar was crowded I always was asked for a refill and was able to chat up the bartenders who really knew their stuff. They also really went out of their way to make sure I was satisfied. There was also some band playing though they were just average. A full bar is on offer as one of the young ladies next to me tried to pawn off a shot of tequila on me that some guy bought her.

All in all a fun place with good beer, especially for the area. Worth a visit if you live there or happen to be in town.

Tapwerks at Bricktown happened to be straight across the street from my hotel. Geez, what a coincidence. I've always heard mixed reviews about this place so figured I better see for myself. I did not try the food, but the menu is fairly standard bare bones pub eats - sandwiches, salads, and fried stuff. Place is not what I'd call a looker, but it's comfy enough. Bar is a bit high for my liking - or bar stools a bit short...yeah a first world problem of my own genetics. Beers? 212 taps on 2 floors and 100 bottle choices. A very good selection of Oklahoma brews here. Most everything else is pretty common, but did not see any of that "good ole boy honkytonk pool room swill" at this tap house. The bar is pretty good size and was filled with patrons. The barmaid was running her ass off, but doing a fine job. She wore a shirt that read "BEER SNOB" on the back and she knew her stuff well, not to mention perfect pours. I tipped her well! I had three Okie brews for $4 each. Good deal! I only have two REAL complaints. The copper flashed tap splash and bar top really needed a polishing as they looked neglected and...a little gross. A copper bar top? Okay then. I know beer should not be too cold, but it was almost 100F that day and I wasn't really down with the merely cool temps from the taps here. Will I go back? Certainly!

The beer selection here is arguably the best in OKC with 106 taps on each floor and lots of bottles. Only thing that I haven't loved about this place is the food, which isn't bad by an means but it's not amazing. Overall, this is a great beer bar with quality and quantity in their offered selection.

This bar is in a great location downtown, a short walk from the arena and in the heart of Bricktown.

The atmosphere is decent but not endearing at all. Very much a pub feel. Upstairs has a smoking area (haven't seen one of those in years) and overall the place is huge.

Tap selection was fantastic and the bottle list was decent too (relative to what is available in OKC). Didn't eat here, but the menu wasn't all that interesting so we went elsewhere for food.
