Plaza District set for first Oskar Blues pub crawl

Oskar Blues is set to make its debut in Oklahoma this week, and the entire Plaza District is rolling out the welcome mat.

The district will host a four-bar pub crawl on Tuesday, following this route:

-5 p.m. at Empire Slice, serving Mama's Little Yella Pils
-6 p.m. at The Mule, serving Pinner Throwback IPA
-7 p.m. at Saints, serving Old Chub Scotch Ale

At 8 p.m., festivities will shift to Oak & Ore for a beer and music bash featuring five Oskar Blues beers, including the three earlier-mentioned offerings, plus Dale's Pale Ale and IPA.

"It’s really cool to see such a great brewery like Oskar Blues launch in our state,” Oak & Ore owner Micah Andrews said. “They make incredibly good beer, and having them here is just another indicator of how strong the independent craft beer scene is."

Each stop on the crawl will be handing out dual-branded Oskar Blues/Plaza District koozies and Oak & Ore will give away limited-edition Oskar Blues/Oak & Ore glassware with the purchase of any Oskar Blues beer.

Following Tuesday's celebration, the party will move north to The Patriarch on Wednesday, where they will host an Oskar Blues welcome party beginning at 6 p.m.
