The date for the annual Wild Brew beer- and food-tasting event is fast approaching, and those interested in going should act quickly for tickets if they want to save a few bucks.
Tickets for the July 27 event are going for $60, but that price will climb up to $65 starting tomorrow (Friday, July 19).
This will be the 15th year for Wild Brew, which along with the Oklahoma Craft Beer Festival, should be considered in the top two for best beer-tasting events in the state.
The total beer count should reach somewhere around the 125 mark, if not more. You can see the Wild Brew beer list here. In addition, more than 25 restaurants are listed as participating in the event.
I attended Wild Brew last year, and I can tell that even at $60/ticket, it’s a great event that is worth the price. Plus, the proceeds go to charity, benefiting the Sutton Avian Research Center in Bartlesville.
You can buy tickets online, and also opt to pony up more to become a patron, which grants you early, VIP access to the event and special beer and food pairings. Tickets must be purchased in advance — none will be available at the door the day of the event.
-Tonight is the third Mustang pint night featuring an IPA rescued from the wreckage of the OKCity Brewing Cooperative. Tonight’s event is at McNellie’s Tulsa.
-This is still kind of hard to believe. Ten or 12 years ago, I would have told you it was impossible.
-In Beer-We-Can’t-Get news, Stone will soon begin distribution in Kansas, and New Belgium will soon begin distribution in British Columbia. I think this proves that New Belgium will distribute to every place in the world, except Oklahoma.
