Went there midafternoon on a Monday, great selection for Oklahoma and a pretty darn good selection for places that actually support beer. Service was very friendly, helpful, and fast, but not very knowledgeable about beer. The bartender recommended Paulaner Salvator Doppelbock as her choice of stout. They classify their beer by color, regardless of style, so IPAs, lagers, and tripels are all grouped together.

Beer quality was good -- I had Maharaja on tap for the first time, and it was in good shape. They had just tapped it that day or the day before, though.

Food was pretty good -- not excellent, but all we tried was nachos. Prices were pretty reasonable, some of them a little high. They do price on a per beer basis.

This place is just incredible. 100+ taps and servers who know craft beer and provide great service. I happened to be here during OKC Craft Beer Week. Was able to get some glasses and try great beer (Prairie Bomb on tap).

Food was great. I had a southwest salad that was large, tasty, and priced very reasonable.

This spot represents craft beer well and a real gem.

TapWerks has been around awhile but has withstood the test of time as a place to get good beer in okc. With the craft beer rage it has only increased in popularity. The food is consistently solid. Service can be spotty but beer selection is great. Also, serving temperature is not always optimum. If you like a cigar you can venture upstairs and usually enjoy live music also.

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.
