Strong Beer, Special Glassware, Oktoberfest and a trip to GABF are on-tap
August 12, 2016
Oklahoma City, OK – Oklahoma City-based COOP Ale Works will host a celebration for the implementation of Senate Bill 424 at the COOP Taproom, Friday, August 26 from 4-8 pm. The event will also serve as the official launch of the Fall 2016 seasonal brew Oktoberfest.
Guests will have the opportunity to purchase full-strength beer directly from the brewery for the first time as a result of the legislation passed in the Oklahoma Legislature’s most recent session. Guests must be at least 21-years-old to attend any function at the COOP Taproom beginning August 26 as a result of the new law.
“Many breweries in other states have long had the right to serve their full beer selection to visitors,” said COOP Co-Founder Daniel Mercer. “The Oklahoma Legislature, The ABLE Commission and Governor Mary Fallin have helped our small businesses regain our competitive footing with out-of-state breweries by removing the previous restrictions.”
COOP has designed special glassware for the event. 50 guests will have the option to purchase a one-liter German Beer Boot emblazoned with the Oktoberfest logo and filled with Oktoberfest draft for $20. Another 100 guests will be able to purchase a one-liter Oktoberfest Tankard filled with Oktoberfest draft for $15. Guests will be able to keep the glassware.
“COOP Oktoberfest combines Munich malt, Bavarian hops and a traditional German yeast,” said Head Brewer Blake Jarolim. “This lager is really a symbol of the coming of Fall and is a style that our fans have loved for a long time.”
In addition, COOP will give away one expense-paid trip for two to travel to the 2016 Great American Beer Festival in Denver on October 8.
Each attendee (you must be 21+ to enter the brewery) will receive one entry into a drawing for the expense-paid trip for two guests to attend the 2016 Great American Beer Festival in Denver on October 8. The winner must be present for the 7:30 pm drawing to receive the prize package.
The Tornado Galley food truck will be on-site serving traditional German food such as bratwurst and pretzels.
