Oak & Ore to launch updated menu with Founders beer dinner

Oak & Ore this week announced plans to celebrate the upcoming American Craft Beer Week, and they'll kick things off by unveiling an updated menu during a Founders Beer Dinner featuring the much-sought-after Canadian Breakfast Stout.

Here are the details from an Oak & Ore news release:

To kick off a six-event celebration of American Craft Beer Week, Oak & Ore will host a private, five-course beer dinner pairing select items from its updated menu with beers from Founders Brewing Co., including the acclaimed Canadian Breakfast Stout (CBS). 

The dinner will take place on Sunday, May 15 from 6 to 8 p.m.

Each attendee will receive a limited-edition Founders CBS/Oak & Ore glass. A portion of proceeds from the evening will go to benefit the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma Backpack Program. The program provides chronically hungry children with backpacks full of non-perishable, nutritious, kid-friendly, shelf-stable food for weekends and school holidays.

“Chef Eric Adams has been working on some great new menu items that we are excited to feature during this special Founders Beer Dinner,” Oak & Ore owner Micah Andrews said. “We’ve been holding onto the world-famous Canadian Breakfast Stout for a special occasion, and it’s perfect for kicking off both American Craft Beer Week and our new menu. We also couldn’t be more excited to give to the Food Bank’s Backpack program, which is such a simple and beneficial way to help keep schoolkids from going hungry.”

Customers can sign up for the beer dinner by emailing oakandore@gmail.com. The cost of the beer dinner is $50 (tax and gratuity excluded).

Oak & Ore will hold a total of six beer events during American Craft Beer Week, May 15-22, highlighting breweries from all over the United States.

“We get so many great beers from outside of Oklahoma, many of which have inspired our local brewers,” Andrews said. “We wanted to focus on some brands from across the nation during 
American Craft Beer Week, and then we’ll do a similar focus in June with all Oklahoma breweries during Oklahoma City Craft Beer Week. We will have a bunch of really rare and interesting beers during each event, some of which we’ve been cellaring for over a year.”
