A very successful Oklahoma Craft Beer Festival was held on Saturday, and I think I can safely speak for everyone when I say a good time was had by all. Major shout-out to Greg Powell from TapWerks for orchestrating the event and, by golly, just for caring so much about beer.
It was great to see Anthem Brewing make its public debut with is Belgian blonde Golden One, and also to meet the folks representing the next craft brewer to expect on the local scene, Black Mesa (more to come on the blog). And naturally, any place I can get a taste of Cuvee Four and then take five or six steps and sample COOP’s special orange blossom IPA must be a pretty good place. Alas, we look ahead to next year.
In the meantime, the next major beer-tasting event to look forward to is Wild Brew, which is scheduled for July 28 in T-Town. I can tell you that I may or may not have had a minor sneak taste Saturday of the Wild Brew 2012 Rye Saison brewed by Choc and the FOAM homebrewers, and I can also tell you that it probably is pretty awesome. And so why not share these photos, which show Freddy from the BierGarten and the FOAM crew in action on Wild Brew brew day at Krebs.
