ABOUT THE SUMMIT

STATE OF THE BREWNION

The Oklahoma Craft Beer Summit is the only local conference that serves professional brewers, home brewers, and the general public alike. A social event with 400+ attendees enjoying craft brews together, the Summit promotes fellowship and encourages education and innovation for the Sooner State brewing industry.

The Summit was originally designed by local craft beer bar Oak & Ore to attract the attention of Oklahoma lawmakers, in hopes of advancing legal changes to the beer industry, while also raising funds for the Craft Brewers Association of Oklahoma, which is dedicated to furthering those changes. 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 from their own taprooms.
