Nice plans on deck at TapWerks

If you perhaps haven’t been down to TapWerks since the extravaganza that was Oklahoma City Craft Beer Week, this may be a good time to make plans to swing by.

Festivities start tonight with the monthly third Thursday COOP Ale Works night. Tonight’s beer will be a watermelon sour that will be tapped at 6 p.m. (With this weather we’re having, it feels like someone should tap a Baltic porter tonight.) TapWerks general manager Greg Powell relays that part of the beer was actually fermented in a watermelon. Sounds exciting!

As a side note, the Red Earth Brewers homebrew club will hold its monthly meeting tonight at TapWerks. Feel free to stop by and say hi — they’re good folk, those Red Earth Brewers.

Moving on, next week, TapWerks will host a week of pint nights in celebration of Belgian Beer Week. Here’s the rundown:

-Monday: Gulden Draak

-Tuesday: Lindemans Framboise and Peche

-Wednesday: La Trappe Quad

-Thursday: All 20 Belgian Taps

-Friday: Urthel Samaranth

And here’s a pic TapWerks posted to show off the glassware:

And one more note on TapWerks: the annual international IPA Day celebration has been set for Aug. 7, and Powell says TapWerks will once again host a special night to commemorate the occasion.
