Oak & Ore plans four-pack of coffee beer brunches

Oak & Ore started serving brunch one year ago, and now the Plaza District spot is marking that occasion by hosting a series of special Sunday coffee beer brunches.

O&O will feature a different Oklahoma City brewery or beer company each Sunday in November, beginning tomorrow with Elk Valley.

"We're really grateful for the support we've received from the Plaza District, Oklahoma craft brewers, and especially from our customers whose feedback has helped us evolve our brunch menu," said Micah Andrews, Oak & Ore owner.

Tomorrow's Elk Valley brunch is set for 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. and will feature limited-release coffee beers, branded coffee mugs (while supplies last) and free bacon for guests who dress up in the day's theme. The theme Sunday is "Open Season" (camo or outdoor apparel).

As an aside, there's definitely something to be said for coffee beers. When you can cover 50 percent of my drink groups (beer, coffee, water, wine) in one drink, you're really being efficient. And technically, beer is made out of water, so I'm gonna count that as 75 percent.

The featured beers tomorrow are Magic Barrel Sour, Bourbon Oaked Sweet Revenge Imperial Milk Stout, Whiskey Barrel Coconut Nemesis and Coffee Nemesis. There will also be Elk Valley beer-mosas.

Future brunches are Vanessa House on Nov. 13, Anthem on Nov. 20 and COOP on Nov. 27. All brunches are 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., except for the COOP brunch, which is set to start at 10 a.m.

Here are some details for each event:

Nov. 13: Vanessa House will lead a Superhero Brunch to raise money for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. There will be special brews on tap in collaboration with Coffee Slingers Roasters, free bacon for folks who dress as superheroes, superhero mixed-tape beats specially curated by the Vanessa House crew, hero and villain appearances from Jedi OKC, limited edition mugs, raffle prizes, and more.

Nov. 20: Anthem will be brewing up their first ever coffee version of Uroboros Imperial Stout to be served alongside other limited beers. Special edition Anthem mugs will be given out with the purchase of an Anthem beer.

Nov. 27: COOP Ale Work’s Wakin’ and Bacon Toaster Brunch will feature a broadcast of indie radio station’s The Spy FM’s “Toaster Brunch” reggae-centric Sunday morning show, live from Oak & Ore. Oak & Ore will be open at 10 a.m. to kick off the “Toaster Brunch” broadcast. COOP will feature its Coffee Gransport Porter and Elevator wheat beer-mosas with free bacon for customers dressed in 70s-themed attire. Free “This is probably beer” coffee mugs while supplies last with the purchase of any COOP beer.

As a side note, I still think it's cool that you can hold an event or series of events featuring only Oklahoma City beermakers. Not to sound all "I used to walk to school uphill both ways in four feet of snow," but, not too long ago there weren't four OKC brewers to feature. And never mind the fact you actually don't even have to stop at four now. Anyway, rambling over. Enjoy the weekend!
