The Brew Shop primed for grand-opening celebration

During the summer I was part of a team of helpers assisting The Brew Shop owner Gail White move her shop from her old location on north Penn to her new location on north Penn (just a couple miles down the road).

Now White is ready to celebrate the move; she's hosting a combo grand-opening/20th anniversary party for the new location on Sunday at the store, 2916 N Pennsylvania Ave.

Festivities will kick off at 1 p.m. and run through 4 p.m., with food, music and homebrewed beer, wine, cider and mead to sample.

If you haven't checked out the new Brew Shop, you owe it to yourself to get by there. It's a huge upgrade in space, and that allows White to really display her products in a way not possible in the old shop.

If you can't make it by The Brew Shop on Sunday, but you're still looking to get your beer fix, fear not. There are plenty of other events coming up on the local beer calendar.

For starters, if you're in Stillwater today or tomorrow, Iron Monk announced their new tap room is now open for business.

Doors officially opened on Thursday, and they'll welcome guests at 1 p.m. today (Friday) and bright and early at 10 a.m. Saturday ahead of OSU's homecoming game against Kansas, which is set for a 2:30 p..m. kick-off.

Also happening today, Marshall Brewing will be open from noon to 7 p.m. for growler fills, pints and flights. Creole Food Truck will be there for lunch and dinner.

If you're looking for something located a little more in Oklahoma City, consider swinging by COOP Ale Works on Saturday. They're planning a Halloween Party at 1 p.m., featuring a special fundraiser by the group Made Possible By Us. You can learn more here.

Looking ahead a little bit, mark Thursday, Oct. 29 on your calendar. That's the day Pub W-Memorial Road will host an Omnipollo Fatamorgana Release Party, set to begin at 6 p.m. And on that same night, The Patriarch will host a Founders Pint Night at Tap Takeover, also at 6 p.m. 

You can also head over to The Patriarch the night before, Wednesday, Oct. 28, for a Black Mesa Kolsch Pint Night. Interesting story about Black Mesa Kolsch -- the beer is the same recipe as Black Mesa's Blonde Ale. When Black Mesa first unveiled the beer, they feared calling it by its true name, Kolsch, may have deterred some less-craft-aware fans from drinking the beer. Fast forward a few years, and they feel confident Oklahoma's beer palate has expanded enough to accept the beer for what it really is. Thus the rebranding to Black Mesa Kolsch.

Pints and Pins

-The most excellent Beer Yoga, Brooke Larson, will teach a yoga class at The Patriarch tomorrow morning at 11 a.m. They're calling it "Detox so you can Retox."

-The Mustang Brewing taproom is open from 4 to 7 p.m. tonight for pints, growler fills and shuffleboard.

-Anthem has bottled its newest beer, Domestique, and it should be on shelves in the coming weeks. In the meantime, you can score some of the Belgian quad on draft at TapWerks.
