Bricktown Brewery, Oklahoma City, OK

The Bricktown Brewery is another wonderful example of an old brick building restored so it has become a showpiece in the neighborhood.  The whole area is undergoing renovation.  Some of the streets are paved with bricks, and the sidewalks are partially paved with bricks, which can be purchased and inscribed.  Some people have done it to honor loved ones, while some businesses have bought multiple bricks and had their logo put on them.  The walls supporting the light rail system are painted with beautiful murals celebrating  Oklahoma’s centennial.

We walked around a bit before entering the brewery, enjoying the artwork around us.

Bricktown Brewery started in 1992.  The building they are in is a former candy factory, which has been very nicely redone.  On the main floor there is a bar area and a large dining room.  On the second floor there is a bar and game area with pool tables, and a large banquet room.  There are nice touches to the decorating like the chairs, which are not your standard restaurant-issue chairs (see photo).  Even though the building is an old factory with brick walls, it has an elegant feel.

We tried their beer sampler, which included the six beers they currently have on tap.  The blueberry seasonal had blueberries floating in it, which enhanced an already wonderful beer.

The only one of the beers we didn’t care for was the 46 Star Oklahoma Amber.  The food was also quite good.  No surprise there.  In addition, we had a good, personable server.

This was our lunch stop on a long driving day, and it provided a very pleasant respite from the road.  The Bricktown Brewery is a place well worth another visit.

You can find their website at  And you can find more pictures in the photo album.
