Oklahoma breweries

deserve to be celebrated
The Oklahoma Craft Beer Awards (OCBAs) has been created to showcase and promote the efforts of the best breweries in Oklahoma. Our goal is to bring our local brewing industry together to identify and champion beers of quality and distinction from across the state and to create additional avenues for brand-building for all award-winning breweries. We invite all Oklahoma breweries to enter the best examples of their craft.  Each submitted entry will help raise scholarship money for students of the School of Hospitality and Tourism Management through sponsorship from our generous donors.
