Three SWOK Breweries Land On Oklahoma Craft Beer Trail
This week, the Oklahoma Craft Brewers Association announced something new and unique, it's the Oklahoma Craft Beer Trail - AKA - an epic pub crawl that will take you to every corner of the state, and three of those breweries on the list reside right here in Southwest Oklahoma.
In no particular order, the first brewery on the SWOK portion of the trail is the War Pony Brewery right here in Lawton at the Comanche Nation Casino. Billed as a chill place to have a beverage, they actually make a few different brews in house. Comanche Moon Lager, a hoppy Lord of the Plains IPA, Double Down Ale and Comanche Bourbon Stout. Since it's here in town, it might be worth taking the growler down there and sampling the goods.
Over in Duncan, set way back off Highway 81 in a partially wooded area of their North industrial sector you'll eventually run across Kochendorfer Brewing Company. I know, it's a mouthful, but when you're talking craft beer, a mouthful is a good thing. Kochendorfer brews a whopping ten different beers that they serve up in house and to-go. Whether you want to fill your own vessels or opt for their canned products to take home, the tap-room looks like a cool place to cool off on a hot day.
Last but not least is Canadian River Brewing Company up in Chickasha. They brew up small batches of twelve different beers. Everything from the normal hipster craft brewed pale ales to double IPA's, even a salted saison. While you can sample some of their select brews at Bricktown Brewery here in Lawton, it might be worth the trip up the turnpike. They also smoke bar-b-que in house, and who's not up for a trip to a new BBQ joint nearby?
