In town: the association of craft brewers offers a calendar

Lillie-Beth Brinkman

Members of the Craft Brewers Association of Oklahoma have developed a unique local holiday gift that will give you a sample of local beers across the state. But you’ll need to act fast — the Oklahoma Craft Beer Advent Calendar will only be sold out Nov. 10-18, and numbers are limited to 300.

No two Advent calendars will be the same, but they will all feature multiple styles of beer from all over Oklahoma. Shoppers will be able to choose in Tulsa or Oklahoma City during checkout and will pick up in Tulsa from 3-7 p.m. Dec. 7 at Cabin Boys Brewery, 1717 E. Seventh St., or Oklahoma City from 3-7 p.m. h. December 8 at Vanessa House Brewery, 118 NW Eighth St.

The general public can go online at at midnight November 10. If you are a member of the Enthusiast Association, you will have access to registration five days earlier. Advent calendars will remain on sale until sold out.

To put together the calendars, the association works with the Dale Rogers Training Center, a nonprofit organization that supports people with disabilities through work opportunities, training and more.

Participating breweries have developed holiday-inspired beers for the calendar. They include American Solera, Prairie Artisan Ales, Vanessa House, Lively Beerworks, 405 Brewing, Roughtail Brewing, Cabin Boys Brewery, The Big Friendly, Elk Valley Brewing Co., Lazy Circles Brewing, Broke Brewing Co., NEFF Brewing, Canadian River Brewing , Coop Ale Works, Iron Monk, Dead Armadillo, Angry Scotsman Brewing, Stonecloud Brewing, Skydance Brewing Co., Nothing’s Left and Anthem Brewing.

Speaking of beer, the Jones Assembly celebrates its fourth annual “Jonestoberfest” sponsored by the Republic National Distribution Event on its patio from 3 p.m. to 2 a.m. Saturday. The event is free and includes a day of food, spirits and music, also known as German food, beer and folk music. Culinary specialties include Schwab’s Turkey Leg, Colossal Pretzels with Sauces, Jalapeno Cheddar Corn Dog, and Cheesy Jones Toddlers. Folk tunes music starts from 3 to 5 p.m. with the Polkatimers.
