Have you ever been strolling around the renovated Myriad Gardens at dusk and thought to yourself, “Man, I’d like to soak in all this great scenery with a beer in hand!” If you have, then your wishes have been answered.
A new beer event to benefit Lyric Theatre has been scheduled for the spring, and it will be set under the stars in downtown Oklahoma City at the Myriad Gardens.
The event is being staged by the Lyric Understudies Young Patron organization, a group of 40-and-younger theater/community supporters. Proceeds will benefit Lyric Theatre and support its programming and the Thelma Gaylord Academy. You can read more about Lyric by clicking here.
Broadway & Brew will feature beer and food samples, as well as a cash bar. Participating breweries include, but are not limited to:
-COOP Ale Works
-Black Mesa Brewing
Participating restaurants/bars include:
-Park Avenue Grill
-TapWerks Ale House
The event will include live music, a prize raffle and appearances by performers in some of Lyric’s upcoming shows, including “Tarzan,” “The King and I,” and “Will Rogers Follies.”
Tickets are $55 per person in advance and can be had at the event website, www.broadwayandbrew.com.
You can’t have enough outdoor, downtown Oklahoma City craft beer events, I always say.

-Roughtail has added some beer gear to its website. Also, a note Roughtail passed along on Facebook: “We are still working with the inspectors of Midwest City to get all of our permits. So far we have electrical and the health department. The big question mark right now is plumbing & wastewater. If you live in Midwest City you might want to call your city council person and tell them how much you would really love to see Roughtail succeed.”
