TapWerks is an Irish style pub with a very large number of beers on tap. When I was there, it was rather slow, but that was most likely due to it being a Sunday afternoon. The waitress was friendly and attentive. As I mentioned before, the selection is huge, but I think this comes at a price. One of the people I was there with ordered one of their samplers which comes with several different beers. One of the beers (Spaten Helles) reeked of butter. It tasted very unusual. The other beers were good, but that aspect was rather unappealing. The food is ok, the prices ok as well, but don't expect amazing cuisine, this is a beer bar. I thought the place was nice, but I would be sure to either order bottled beers in the future, or drink a beer on tap that has a fast rotation.

Tapwerks Ale House is located in the Bricktown district of Oklahoma City near the hotel I was staying at. Once you enter, there's an Irish Pub feel. Dark wood. Lots of tables and booths. I believe there's also a second level. The had quite a few taps, maybe 100 or so.

My server was welcoming and prompt in his service. I ordered some food to take back to the hotel.

I had a local milk stout. Very cool vibe. I enjoyed my visit.

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.
