With craft breweries popping up all over town, Tulsa is in the midst of a beer renaissance. Instead of wondering where to go, take away the guesswork with a brewery tour by bus or on foot. These three local options are sure to hit the spot.
Pearl Brewery Tours
Inspiration struck while Tyler Palmer sat with his dad at the Tulsa brewery Dead Armadillo. They had enjoyed brewery tours in other towns and wanted to bring the same experience to Tulsa. This led Palmer to start Pearl Brewery Tours in March.
“For me, the best part is introducing Tulsans to a community they might know very little about,” Palmer says. “The tour is a great way to find a place you like, meet new people and have a good time.”
Most tours occur on the weekends, but weekday tours can be arranged. Tickets range from $46-$56. See a tour schedule at pearlbrewerytours.com.
Booze Club Tulsa
Stacy Williams wants her brewery tours to garner the same amount of respect as a wine tasting. With chances to learn more about the brewing process and the various flavor components, her tour helps people learn how to order from a craft beer menu.
“I hope people learn to appreciate our local brewers even more,” Williams says. “The owners and staff work hard to produce delicious beer, and each brewer has a personal spin on its products.”
Tours are held Friday and Saturday and start at $60. View the schedule and book a tour at
Brewery Nights with Fleet Feet Blue Dome
For those who love running and craft beer, this event is the perfect combination. Brewery Night starts at 6 p.m. certain Tuesdays at the Fleet Feet stores in the Blue Dome District and in Broken Arrow, where informal pace groups form. Participants run or walk to a participating brewery, enjoy the craft beer, then return.
“You have the chance to see a part of downtown that you don’t normally see in a car,” says Ethan Voelkers, Fleet Feet marketing manager.
The event is free; participants must purchase their own beverages. See fleetfeettulsa.com/brewerynight for upcoming dates.
