With St. Patrick’s Day a little more than a month away, I figure it’s not too early to start pinning down plans. Today, we’ll take a look at TapWerks, which has scheduled a weekend of celebration for March 16-17.
For the Saturday, TapWerks has planned an outdoor festival-type set-up featuring live music all day and a DJ in the evening.
There will be more than 20 beers on tap, including the COOP trailer with a special St. Pat’s firkin. Food trucks, including Moto Chef and S&B Burger Joint, will be on hand.
The annual Oklahoma City St. Pat’s Day parade is set for that morning, and a Bon Jovi concert is scheduled at Chesapeake Energy Arena that night, so there’s plenty going on in the Bricktown area.
Then, on St. Patrick’s Day proper, TapWerks will feature live music indoors all day.
-Marshall Brewing has a couple events slated for Valentine’s Day. First, at 5 p.m., McNellie’s Tulsa will offer up a cask of Marshall’s STELLA!, a cask-conditioned, English-style brown ale single-hopped with Stella hops. Then, for those in the Little Rock area, the Flying Saucer will offer up a cask of cherry-and-chocolate-infused Big Jamoke Porter at 6:30 p.m.
-Flying Dog has launched a series of clone kits for homebrewers.
-If you’re looking to enter your homebrew in the Bluebonnet Brew-off, the registration deadline is Sunday. As of this morning, there were only about 40 registrations left — so by Sunday it may be too late.
