Anniversary party highlights legendary lineup and limited-release beers, Oklahoma Hard Seltzer and food trucks with all proceeds going to the OK Humane Society
COOP Ale Works will commemorate its 11th anniversary with a party benefiting the Oklahoma Humane Society from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Saturday, March 7 at the COOP brewery and taproom at 4745 Council Heights Road in Oklahoma City.
Within the past year, the company has announced a new hard seltzer line, Will & Wiley, the first hard seltzer to be distributed by an Oklahoma craft brewery. COOP has also produced 250,000 cans of COOP beer and Will & Wiley Oklahoma Hard Seltzer this year.
“Our growing community and their support continue to be central to our success,” said Sean Mossman, director of sales and marketing for COOP Ale Works. “We want to celebrate these triumphs with our outstanding proponents and fans alike. This event serves as a great reminder of our past wins as we prepare for future accomplishments.”
With this one-of-a-kind beer tasting event, COOP Ale Works recognizes its past lineup of beers while celebrating new releases such as Will & Wiley Oklahoma Hard Seltzer. Exclusive and limited-edition anniversary beers, Will & Wiley hard seltzer samples and year-round core beers will be available for patrons to enjoy all day. Specialty beers will include vintages from their barrel-aged Territorial Reserve, DNR Cask-It and Id series, and one-off custom pilot batches from each member of COOP’s production staff. A live DJ and food trucks including Phill Me Up Cheesesteak, Taco Nation and La Gumbo Ya Ya will also be at the party.
Two sessions are available for those interested in attending the celebration from either 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. or 4 to 8 p.m. General admission tickets are available for $30 and will include an 11th anniversary tasting glass and access to six beer stations. Designated driver tickets are available for $10 and will not include access to the VIP area. Tickets are available now and can be purchased at coop-11.eventbrite.com or by visiting the Tower Theatre box office.
All proceeds from the anniversary party will benefit the Oklahoma Humane Society, Oklahoma’s largest animal-related charity committed to eliminating dog and cat euthanasia in the community. COOP has partnered with OK Humane each year as part of the company’s efforts to better the community who has supported them from the beginning.
“Our team knows first-hand how animals make a difference and positively impact our lives and wellbeing,” said Mossman. “Donating the proceeds of this event to the Oklahoma Humane Society is one small way to say thank you to the pets who have played and will eventually play an enormous role in enhancing the lives of the people in our community.”
Guests must be 21 or older to attend and present a valid photo ID for entry. Pets and other animals will not be allowed access into the anniversary party.
In preparation for the anniversary party, COOP’s taproom will be closed on Friday, March 6. It will reopen for normal operating hours on Wednesday, March 11. For more information about this event, COOP’s beer lineup and other upcoming events, visit coopaleworks.com.
