Dates set for Oklahoma Craft Beer Festival, OKC Craft Beer Week

For Oklahoma City craft beer fans, it's the second-most exciting time of the year.

The first-most exciting time of the year, of course, is Oklahoma City Craft Beer Week and the culminating celebration, the Oklahoma Craft Beer Festival.

Just slightly less exciting is the announcement of the dates for the OKCCBW and OCBF, which I'm bringing to you right now.

Mark your calendars, beer fans: Oklahoma City Craft Beer Week is set for June 11-19, 2016, and the marquee event, the Oklahoma Craft Beer Festival, will be June 17 and 18 at the Cox Convention Center in downtown Oklahoma City.
You read that correctly: the sixth annual OCBF is expanding to a two-day festival for the first time. Here are the specifics:

The event will feature a Friday night regular session, a Saturday afternoon VIP session and a Saturday night regular session. OCBF will feature more than 300 beers from more than 50 brewers, breweries-in-planning and homebrewers. Regular-session tickets will be $40, and will go on sale May 1.

You may remember that OCBF was forced into the Cox Convention Center last year due to weather. Festival organizer Greg Powell decided to keep the event inside this year, and he's secured an even bigger space than 2015. This will allow room for more brewers and for more food trucks.

You can keep up with all the OCBF news on the festival's social media channels, including on Facebook, on Twitter (@_ocbf) and on Instagram (oklahomacraftbeerfestival).

Meantime, let's not forget about the third annual Oklahoma City Craft Beer Week:

I know some brewers and venues are already lining up events, and I'll be compiling the event schedule and keeping you updated on all the news that's fit to print as far as OKCCBW goes. 

If you've got an event you would like added to the calendar, you can message me on the OKCCBW Facebook page, or drop an email to

I have a feeling this will be the best OCBF and the best OKCCBW to date. Can't wait until June!
