    Buy up any Prairie Artisan Ales you can find.

    Green flash and brew dog have recently arrived in Oklahoma. As mentioned above, Prairie is putting out some awesome beers right now. My favorite is the standard. I'm sure there's plenty more that I can't think of right now! Hopefully others will chime in!

    Ditto on the Prairie reccomendations. The Noir is my favorite, but all are very nice. Not sure if you've had any TallGrass, but their stuff is worthy too.

    rocdoc, get yerself a COOP F-5 ipa on tap somewhere (like Grandads on 23rd). Right up the road is Byron's, where you can find some Native Amber cans or DNR bottles to take back to New Mexico. Ya can't go wrong with some Marshall or Choc Signature either. Be sure and sample our great Tex-Mex or BBQ too. Likker sto closes at 9 pm, mind you.
  8. If you're gonna go tallgrass, snag their 8-bit Pale Ale. Comes in 4-packs i believe. One of my favorite pale ales to date. And ditto on the choc... I would check out the OPA if you can find it.

    I found all four Prairie Artisan beers at Broadway Wine Merchants (824 N Broadway Ave). And just FYI, you're not going to find any good beer in Oklahoma anywhere but at a liquor store. Another shop I recommend would be Freeman Liquor Mart (4401 N Western Ave). I didn't see any Prairie Ales there but did find lots of other good bottles.

    I usually hit Freeman and Byrons when I'm in town, but I'll try the Broadway Wine Merchants this time also. I'm staying downtown by the convention center, isn't there a good taphouse down there somewhere?
  12. You are probably thinking of Tapwerks in Bricktown. They are doing a nice job of catering to beer enthusiasts (which wasn't always the case).
    The temptingly titled Bricktown Brewery has good food, but house brews are all legally limited to 4% ABV and vary from bland to bad.
