The Oklahoma Hall of Fame’s Second Century Board is putting the finishing touches on the 5th annual Oklahoma Born & Brewed, presented by The Chickasaw Nation, to be held on Friday, August 16 at the Oklahoma Hall of Fame and Gaylord-Pickens Museum in Midtown Oklahoma City.
Oklahoma Born & Brewed will provide guests with a unique tasting experience that is completely born and brewed right here in Oklahoma. From established craft brewers to breweries in planning, makers will bring old favorites and new small batch brews to give guests an exclusive sampling.
With the feel of a casual cocktail party, the event will encourage guests to mix, mingle, and taste samples at their leisure. Featured Oklahoma breweries and makers include: (405) Brewing Co., Angry Scotsman Brewing, Anthem Brewing, Artisan Fine Wine & Spirits, BIG Brew Co., Bricktown Brewery, Cabin Boys Brewery, Canadian River Brewing Co., COOP Ale Works, Core4 Brewing Company, Iron Monk Brewing Company, Marshall Brewing Co., OK Cider Co., Prairie Artisan Ales, Renaissance Brewing Company, Roughtail Brewing Company, Stonecloud Brewing Co., Twisted Spike Brewing Co., and Vanessa House Beer Company.
All proceeds benefit the Oklahoma Hall of Fame and the Craft Brewers Association of Oklahoma. The event will take place from 7 to 10 p.m. in the Bennett-McClendon Great Hall of the Oklahoma Hall of Fame and Gaylord-Pickens Museum in Oklahoma City.
Second Century Board Member and Oklahoma Born & Brewed Chairwoman Morgan Brammer explains, “The Second Century Board looks forward to this event every year, especially this year as it’s our 5th annual event. We are excited to show off the best of our state’s craft beer industry, introduce guests to breweries they may not have visited before, and also allow them to experience the Oklahoma Hall of Fame. Your Oklahoma Born & Brewed ticket truly makes a difference in preserving our state’s history because all proceeds are donated back to the free educational programs offered by the Oklahoma Hall of Fame. This year included, the Second Century Board will be donating back a collective $100,000 to free family programming and free field trips.”
