Wild Brew beer festival turns 21 this month
The event, dubbed “the greatest party ever hatched” on Aug. 24 will raise funds for the Sutton Avian Research Center.
Tulsa’s longest-running craft beer festival, Wild Brew, will celebrate its 21st birthday this month.
The event, dubbed “the greatest party ever hatched” on Aug. 24 will raise funds for the George Miksch Sutton Avian Research Center, best known for its work with bald eagles. In 2007 the bald eagle was removed from the endangered species list; now they are a regular part of our Oklahoma skyline. Sutton also swoops in to rescue other Oklahoma feathered friends and their habitats.
With 50 participating breweries and hundreds of beers, Wild Brew also has seen the number of Oklahoma-based breweries bubbling up in recent years. Recognizable local breweries, like Marshall’s, New Era Fine Fermentations, Bricktown Brewery, Dead Armadillo and others will be in attendance.
Wild Brew will be 5-8 p.m., with patrons allowed in at 4 p.m. at the Cox Convention Center, 100 Civic Center. Patron tickets are $185 at the door and $165 online and include early entrance to the event and a VIP area with games, cocktails and posh places to perch. General admission tickets, which are $75 at the door and $65 online, allow ticket holders to taste all the beers and mingle with the brewers while nibbling on delicious delights from 40 of Tulsa’s best restaurants.
