A good friend opened a local microbrewery here in OKC. The ribbon cutting was this past Tuesday. So, what can a girl do but get childcare and go drink a beer at two in the afternoon. This is a project that was worth celebrating. JD Merryweather has been working on this for three years now. They have developed everything from the business plan, the recipes, the art, and even an environmental sustainability plan.
I have become very happy in the niche I have found in Oklahoma City. It is full of creative, politically aware people who are dedicated to making this part of the world a place of innovation that is uniquely Oklahoman. JD does this with passion and COOP Ale Works is a product of this dedication.
Check out some pictures of the Ribbon Cutting and a Tour from my night at the Brewery (tour pics taken with my iphone, forgive the quality).
