Date set for 2013 Beer Sprocket festival

by Nick Trougakos Published: February 28, 2013
The days are getting longer, the weather is (hopefully) getting warmer, and the spring season is right around the corner. I think we all know what that means: Beer festival season is also right around the corner.

And that means it’s time to mark your calendar for the annual Beer Sprocket festival put on by Old Germany.

This year’s Beer Sprocket is set for 4 to 9 p.m. April 13 at Choctaw Creek Park.

Festival organizer and Old Germany proprietor Mike Turek says this year’s Beer Sprocket will feature about 100 different beers for sample, and food from Old Germany, Turek’s Tavern and several other metro-area restaurants.

Tickets are $50 and must be purchased online prior to the event at As in years past, there will be no day-of ticket sales.

Proceeds from ticket sales will benefit the Rotary Club of East Oklahoma County and aid in efforts toward the world-wide eradication of Polio and several other charitable causes.

And let’s all remember to keep our fingers crossed for some nice weather this year. If you remember, last year’s festival was postponed and delayed by a month because of tornado forecasts.

-If you’re in Tulsa today, and you like beer, best make your way over the McNellie’s at 5 p.m. for a sample of an experimental keg from Marshall Brewing — a coffee stout made with fresh-roasted coffee beans.

-Speaking of Marshall, Friday marks the return of its spring seasonal, Revival Red Ale. A release party is scheduled for 5 p.m. Friday at Bar 46, 107 N Boulder. The release will include a special cask-conditioned version of Revival Red Ale infused with blood oranges. Intriguing!

-Choc Beer Co. is hiring a part-time packaging assistant. For every five bottles you pack, you get to drink one on the spot.* If you are interested, email

*OK, I just made that up. But that would be a good perk.
