After a refreshing Holiday Hiatus, we’re happy to be back – and we’re bringing a new friend! Twisted Spike Brewery is OKC’s latest craft beer power player, and just opened their doors a few weeks ago in Automobile Alley. If you haven’t heard of them or tried their brews yet, next Wednesday is the time to remedy that. Owner Bruce Sanchez has spent years perfecting his recipes (and winning awards), and we’ll be pouring his creations for you all night!
Remember, a portion of all Twisted Spike purchases from the evening will be donated to Gatewood Elementary school, and we’ll also have donation boxes for school supplies, so bring a mighty thirst and plenty of copy paper!

The Oklahoma Craft Beer Summit is the only industry event that serves professional brewers, home brewers, and the general public. A social event with 200+ attendees enjoying craft brews together, promotes fellowship and encourages learning in the Sooner State.
The summit was originally designed to attract the attention of Oklahoma lawmakers in hopes of advancing legal changes to the beer industry. With the recent passage of Oklahoma Senate Bill 424, brewers across the state are now able to serve all beers, both low- and high-point, directly to the public.

Cost: $0. Participation is completely free.
When: October 15, 2016, anytime between 11am - 4pm.
Where: Begins at The Paramount Upper Room, 701 West Sheridan, OKC, OK 73102.
Prizes: $1,000 cash grand prize. Everyone who completes the hunt will receive exclusive discounts and coupons from the participating stores inside the districts.
Ways to Win: Every person who completes the hunt will be entered into a drawing for the $1,000 grand prize. If you pre-registered through Eventbrite, you'll get a second entry into the drawing. If you shared the Eventbrite page before October 13th on Facebook or Twitter, you'll get a third entry into the drawing.
Details: You can play the hunt anytime from 11am to 4pm, but plan on an average play time of 2 hours (in other words, you should probably begin by 2pm). The hunt is best played with a team of 2 or more people. Every player on a team will be entered into the drawing. You must have access to a smart phone and a vehicle to participate. You don't need to pre-register to play, but all players must begin at The Paramount.
The themes of the scavenger hunt are not family-oriented, but they are family-friendly (in other words, if this was a movie, we’d rate it PG-13). Other terms and conditions apply.
