The only reason they didn't get a 5/5 is due to OK's stupid laws about the ABV level Breweries can serve. These guys make too good of beer to be held back by religious blue laws. Thankfully they opened the Brewpub!

It never ceases to amaze that a world-class brewery like Prairie is based in Tulsa, Oklahoma, and brews partially in the tiny town of Krebs. Okie proud, y’all!

Their taproom is in the city of Tulsa, in an industrial area across the Arkansas River from Downtown. It is a blink-and-you-miss-it kind of place, barely marked. But once you’re there, what fun! Ample outdoor seating with picnic tables and benches; plus a couple of tables inside the brewing room, right next to the tanks.

They sell merchandise (glassware, t-shirts, stickers, growlers) and bottled beer from their own stuff and also Evil Twin.

4 Prairie brews on tap (Falcon Punch, Birra, Foeder Weisse, Raz Vous), growler fills and flights.

All the beers are, by Oklahoma law, low-ABV, but this should change when a law is introduced to allow breweries to sell “big” beers on-site and also bottled stuff. The folks at Prairie are super nice, and it is great to sit inside or out and be surrounded by barrels and unique beer. Love this place so much!

Could not taste the pepper but overall enjoyed with a great Cohiba cigar. Coffee, vanilla is predominant with me, like a cold expresso float. . Boozy = no. .
Really fantastic. Not the best I have ever had, but top 5 for sure. On a cool or cold night, warms the soul.

As far as breweries go, Prairie leaves a lot to be desired. The person doing pours and fills have been pretty clueless every time I've been there.

The quality is fine, but the selections are always somewhat limited. To my friend from Texas below, the reason you won't find any of Prairie's stouts is because Oklahoma brewers are limited to serving 4% beers at their breweries. THAT is a stupid OK law, which will, hopefully be changed. If you are looking for the big ABV offerings, go to Prairie's new downtown Tulsa brewpub.

Went here with high expectations based on the beers I've had. Left feeling shorted. This may be due to lack of research re: when to visit.

The pour girl was the only person at the brewery when we visited. There were 5 beers on draft, none of which I've had before. All were good beers, but none of the 'special' artisan ales (Bombs, noirs, etc.) were available. I'm also 100% certain that the Weisse and Farmhouse had swapped labels on the tap.

Lastly, I was hoping someone would be there to answer general questions about the beer and the brewery. This, however, was not the case.

I'll continue to love and enjoy Prairie's beer, but definitely won't plan to visit the brewery again.
