Just East of Downtown Tulsa, you can find Marshall’s Brewery, Dead Armadillo, Cabin Boys, Heirloom Rustic Ales, American Solera, and many others. Most of the breweries are equipped with their own taprooms where you can enjoy a pint or two with friends. Some have embraced the Biergarten culture — allowing you to enjoy your beer Oktoberfest-style under the open sky.
