Pictured above you have the newly released logo for the first Oklahoma Craft Beer Festival, scheduled May 21 in Bricktown. Tapwerks general manager Greg Powell today sent out the most detailed description of the event we’ve had to date. The highlights:

-The festival will be in the two parking lots between Tapwerks and America’s Pub.

-Two sessions are scheduled: 1 to 4 p.m. and 5 to 8 p.m.

-The cost is $30 per person and includes admission and a commemorative sample cup.

-There will be live music and food from Big Truck Tacos, Hot Dog OKC and a food vendor to be determined.

-All of Oklahoma’s craft brewers are expected.

-A portion of proceeds from the event will benefit charity.

-Ticket sales are expected to be capped at 600 per session. (I’ll post more once additional ticketing information is available)

May 21 can’t get here soon enough!
