Plaza District announces monthly Plaza Beer Walk

Exciting news from restaurant owners in the Plaza District this week: five venues in the revitalized stretch along NW 16 will participate in a monthly Plaza Beer Walk, beginning July 27.

Here's a news release from the Plaza District with more details:

OKLAHOMA CITY – Following the success of the Oskar Blues Plaza District Pub Crawl in April, the Plaza District restaurant owners are announcing plans for a monthly Plaza Beer Walk, taking place on the last Wednesday of every month starting July 27th. Participating restaurants include Empire Slice House, Saints, The Mule, GorĊ Ramen + Izakaya, and Oak & Ore. The events will benefit a different local school each quarter.

“One of the things the Plaza District restaurants have in common is the generous and high quality selection of craft beer at each establishment,” says Josh Jefferson of Saints. “We all thought that it would be fun to share our patrons’ love for craft beer with an ongoing beer walk featuring a different brewery each month. Each restaurant will have a different time slot to pour a featured beer from that brewery, and customers can move from one restaurant to the next to try the different offerings. We also wanted to find a way to support some local schools that are dealing with sharp budget cuts.”

The events will kick off at 5 p.m. and move to the next restaurant each hour. Brewery representatives will be on hand to talk about their beers and give out swag. Plaza District retailers will also stay open late to participate in the festivities.

“The Plaza District as a whole is pretty excited for the monthly Plaza Beer Walk,” said Cayla Lewis, Plaza District Director. “The camaraderie and collaboration our businesses have with one another is unmatched, in my opinion, and an event like this allows restaurants and retailers to combine forces to throw a great party in our home district!”

Love to see the event benefit local schools, and I really appreciate the collaboration of the district venues. This should become a must-do event each month.
