I was in OKC for a night and was looking to find a decent place to enjoy a beer and some of OKC's culture. Well, I was looking forward to going here to the Tapwerks. I looked on their website and saw a enormous amount of great beers on draught there, but...

It is closed. There is no establishment here. I talked with a bartender from another establishment I went to and found it was closed because of some tax reason.

Do not plan to go to this place.

I did go to the Belle Island Brew Pub - look for that review.

As fastfwd has already stated, no freakin' beer menu, on top of that, not all the tap handles are straight, so figuring out what they have available can be a chore. Not how I want to spend my first few minutes there. I had to ask the bartender several times to tell me what this tap was and that tap. Just too hard to read. They were kind enough to turn them when asked, and to tell me what they were when I asked. All three beers I had last night were fairly fresh so I assume that stock is rotated accordingly. With this being Oklahoma, I would be surprised if they didn't have a lot of beer go bad. Great selection as far as Oklahoma goes, but not as good as the bricktown selection if memory serves me, however, and decent place to go hang out. One thing that caught me off guard was the number of women drinking Chimay. My one downside, I came home smelling like I had chainsmoked all night. Very smokey. Would like to see them get better airflow through there. I don't have a problem with smokers, but I really appreciate a place that goes through the trouble of getting proper ventilation so the rest of us don't smell so bad. And please, print a freakin' menu. I work in a print shop, send me a menu, I'll print it on the cheap, just please, get a menu.

This is a pretty nice place. It's located near the higher income residential area of Oklahoma City. They have a dart board and such. A little place outside to sit and drink. I've seen a band playing there before. I don't frequent the place much, but since nobody has written anything about it at all I thought I would give some small idea on it. This location had one beer menu when I went in a few months ago and they didn't even have one when I stopped by there yesterday. How difficult can it be to print some copies of a beer menu with prices? That's just really poor if you ask me - I give them a 2 for service because of that.

My personal gripes aside - this is one of the two Tapwerks in OKC. The only bars that go the extra mile to bring the good beer to OKC. I'm sure they get stuck with a bunch of ruined beer trying to do it. I rate them a 5 for selection relative to other Oklahoma beer bars. This location has fewer selections than the Bricktown location.
