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.

Great place! Nice vibe and good people. Nachos were typical pub food but enough to feed two of us with leftovers. Nice selection of the growing number of MIO brews (made in OK) as well as some really nice contenders from near and far. Wallace took great care of us! I will definitely return next time I am in town!

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.
