Sometimes, you’re sitting around your house in the northwest Oklahoma County-Edmond area, it’s like 8:30 in the evening, and you think, “Boy, I wish I could hop off to the bar to try that latest and greatest craft beer that just went on tap.”
Then you realize that that would probably involve traveling as far south as at least NW 23 — if not all the way downtown — and that you have to work tomorrow and it’s not even worth it because it’s too much driving to make it work out.
That’s exactly what I was thinking last night, so I posed a question on Facebook/Twitter: What’s the best bar/pub/restaurant for craft beer in Edmond?
I could think of a couple suspects off the top of my head — Upper Crust, Old Chicago and Louie’s. Probably Old Chicago would be the best of that bunch, but even then, none of the three has what you would call a kick-ass craft selection.
So surely the loyal Thirsty Beagle Facebook and Twitter followers would come through, their responses cluing me in to several locations I hadn’t considered.
