Stone Brewing Oklahoma Launch Party!

Stone Brewing Oklahoma Launch Party!

We're excited to present a special Plaza Beer Walk, as we band together to celebrate the official launch of Stone Brewing in Oklahoma! As always, a portion of the featured beer sales will be donated to a local school. Gatewood Elementary is our recipient for this night.

Founded by Greg Koch and Steve Wagner in 1996, San Diego-based Stone Brewing is the 10th largest craft brewer in the United States, and has been called the “All-time Top Brewery on Planet Earth” by BeerAdvocatemagazine. The multifaceted company is the first American craft brewer to independently build, own and operate their own brewery in Europe, and also opened a third production brewery in Richmond, Virginia in 2016. Known for its bold, flavorful and largely hop-centric beers, Stone has earned a reputation for brewing outstanding, unique beers while maintaining an unwavering commitment to sustainability, business ethics, philanthropy and the art of brewing.

The Plaza Beer Walk will be the first of several statewide events celebrating the official launch, featuring an impressive lineup of special-release beers and Stone representatives at each location. 
“Thanks to the folks who have asked for us to arrive, we’re excited to finally make Stone beers available in Oklahoma,” said Stone VP of Sales Todd Karnig. “With Stone Brewing Richmond now open, we’re able to get more fresh beer to our fans. We’re happy that Oklahoma can be a part of our expansion and that we can be a part of its vibrant craft beer scene.”

The beer list and release times for next Monday's event will be:

Empire Slice House, 5:00 - Stone IPA

The Mule, 6:00 - Ruination Double IPA

Oak & Ore, 7:00 - Arrogant Bastard

Saints, 8:00 - Delicious IPA

Saints will be the stop for collecting glassware, and Stone will have one of their representatives on hand at each stop. See you there!
