Week in beer: Upland debuts, Plaza Beer Walk returns

Happy Monday, beer fans. Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving break and consumed some fine beverages.

Here's your weekly rundown on what's happening on our local beer scene.

But first, we had some big news drop recently in the ever-growing list of out-of-state breweries that distribute in Oklahoma.

The announcement came from broker/distributor Atlas Brand Craft & Barrel that Denver brewer Crooked Stave will be dropping in Oklahoma on Jan. 1.

Crooked Stave is certainly a great get for the state, and another feather in the cap for ABC&B. You can expect announcements soon on launch events and distribution plans.

Meanwhile, on to the rundown of beer events this week.

-Oklahoma is welcoming yet another new out-of-state brewery this week as Indiana's Upland Brewing Co. makes its local debut. Upland will be featured tonight at 6 p.m. at Oak & Ore with a lineup of eight beers, and then will be launched in Tulsa at 4 p.m. Tuesday at Roosevelt's.

-Stonecloud will begin hosting weekly trivia with Geeks Who Drink, starting tonight at 7 p.m.

-The McNellie's pubs are all hosting their regular Monday pint nights today. The lineup is: Shiner Cheer at OKC; Tallgrass Vanilla Bean Buffalo Sweat at Norman and at Tulsa; and Great Divide Yeti at Tulsa-South.

-Plaza Beer Walk returns this Wednesday, featuring Boulevard. The festivities kick off at 5 p.m. with stops at Empire Slice (Snow & Tell); Saints (Lemon Ginger Radler); Oak & Ore (Hibiscus Gose, Jam Band and Whiskey Barrel Imperial Stout); and The Press (80 Acre and glassware). Note that The Press is a new addition to the Plaza District and a first-time participant in the Beer Walk.

-The Root is hosting a six-week Jenga league/tournament, with a top prize of a Santa Fe Brewing snowboard and a $75 gas card. Week two is Wednesday with sign-up at 6 p.m. and games beginning at 7 p.m. If you missed week one, you can still participate and catch up on points if you start this week. More info here.
