Beer events galore lined up in OKC

Don't you dare say you've got nothing to do! Check out what's on tap for the OKC beer scene in the next couple weeks...

-Oak & Ore is serving up several limited-edition Clown Shoes beers starting tonight at 6 p.m. More info available here.

-The Root is hosting a Unibroue Beer and Cheese Pairing at 7 p.m. tonight. The cost is $20 and seating is limited. More info here.

-Slaughter's Hall is hosting one of them Sam Adams Octoberfest stein-hoisting contests. That's set for 7 p.m. tonight. They are also hosting an Oktoberfest celebration from 2 to 10 p.m. Saturday. More details on that here.

-The Patriarch is staging a Founder Breakfast Stout PJ Party from 6 to 10 p.m. Thursday. Prizes for best (tasteful) pajamas. More info on that event right here.

-Roughtail this week announced its next brewery-only can release. Wheat Dreams will be for sale this Friday at 4 p.m. From the Roughtail FB page, Wheat Dreams is "an American Pale Ale brewed with copious amounts of flaked white wheat and hopped intensively with Galaxy and Citra. Fermented with yeast made famous in Vermont. Plus we will be releasing fresh Everything Rhymes with Orange, growler fills only." Fresh ERWO? Yes please.

-One of my favorite events -- which I will sadly have to miss this year -- is the annual ZooBrew beer tasting at the Oklahoma City Zoo. This year's event is Friday night. You can get ticket info here.

-And there's one more annual tasting event set for Friday night: ARTonTAP at the Oklahoma City Museum of Art will be 7 to 10 p.m. More information available here.

-Also at The Root, they are holding a Six Point Bengali Pint Night at 7 p.m. Sept. 29.

-Slaughter's Hall is hosting the official OKC launch party for Vanessa House Beer Co. This is set for 6 p.m. Sept. 30.

-Interesting-sounding event set for Oct. 1. OKCtoberfest 2016 is set for 2 to 11 p.m. at the Farmer's Market District. You can get more info by clicking here.

-TapWerks is hosting Belgian Beer Week from Oct. 3-7, including a visit on Oct. 7 from a special guest from Petrus Sour Beers to provide a class on blending. Seating is limited for the class, and tickets are $25.

-Back at The Patriarch, they are holding a Vanessa House launch party at 6:30 p.m. on Oct. 6. This will be one of their Beer Cinema nights as well -- the movie this time is "Ghostbusters." Details here.

-The Brew Shop is hosting a free beginner's homebrew class at 11 a.m. on Oct. 8. You'll need to block off at least three hours of time to work through the process, but honestly, any time spent at The Brew Shop is time well spent.

-McNellie's-OKC is holding its next Beer University on Oct. 18, featuring winter beers. Email nettie@mcnellies.com to reserve a spot. Also, McNellie's is offering $5.50 Boulevard The Calling IPA this week.

-Also a bonus note: Republic is hiring for its new Chisholm Creek location. They are holding a job fair from 2 to 4 p.m. today -- you can find more info about that at their FB page. In the meantime, that means we're getting closer to having another good beer option available for northsiders like myself.
