Changes to the Taproom

Oktoberfest Liter Stein_smallSB 424 Changes to the COOP Ale Works Taproom:

Beginning Friday, August 26th, we will be open 4-8pm on Thursdays and Fridays. We will also be open 1-5pm on Saturdays. As always, we will regularly host food trucks and live music. Tours are free and run around 2pm and 3pm every Saturday.

The new ruling allowing us to serve full-strength beer for consumption makes us a 21+ only facility. You must be 21 years of age to be at the brewery during Taproom hours.

We will not fill growlers but we will fill crowlers. We chose crowlers because of their superior package stability and cleanliness. (We have relieved many inquiries about Cherry DNR. We will have it available in pints at the Taproom but unfortunately we cannot repackage it.)

We imported hand-labeled limited edition glassware for the Oktoberfest Release Party on Friday August 26th. $15 1 liter steins and $20 liter boots (filled with Oktoberfest, of course) will be available. Pints, pitchers, cases, 6-packs, and crowlers may also be purchased.

In celebration of SB 424, we are giving away a trip for 2 to Denver, Colorado to the Great American Beer Fest on October 8th. Every attendee gains one entry to the drawing and we will announce the winner at 7:30pm. Cant stay until 7:30? At least join us for a 4:24pm toast to everyone who made SB 424 happen!

COOP Ale Works to Celebrate SB 424 in Style

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.

 

The GABF prize package includes the following:

 

  • Two Members Only tickets for The Great American Beer Festival, Noon Session, October 8, 2016 in Denver
    • Session access begins at 12:00 pm, October 8
    • One ounce tastings from 800 breweries and nearly 3,000 beers to choose from
    • Commemorative tasting cup
    • Commemorative festival program
  • Round-trip airfare from nearest, local airport to Denver
  • Two nights at the Holiday Inn Denver- Cherry Creek
    • Check in October 7
    • Check out October 9
  • $100 Visa Gift Card for meals

Total prize value is about $1,200 per package. Oktoberfest winners will be notified during the event.
