Prairie Opens Brewery and Taproom

Oklahoma brewery will be flagship business for 8th Street Market



 



Time to belly up to the bar – Prairie Artisan Ales will be opening the doors to its new brewery and taproom on Wednesday, Nov. 15.
 

Housed in OKC’s first urban market, Automobile Alley’s 8th Street Market, Prairie will be offering eight beers and will eventually expand to ten, including popular stouts Bomb! and Paradise along with dark ale Holiday Party and its “aggressively hop-forward West Coast-style IPA” A/S/L.

“Our new location will be brewing the same style of beer that Prairie is known for, namely farmhouse ales, stouts and sour ales,” explains general manager Greg Powell.

Powell wants to encourage all visitors to bring their own food or have food delivered, adding, “Having food delivered to bars and breweries without kitchens is something that’s pretty strong in other cities, but doesn’t happen much here. We want to encourage this at Prairie – and, as time goes on, reach out to our neighboring restaurants to see if they will work with us and deliver.”

Food trucks will also be on hand at the site to satisfy hungry drinkers organized by 8th Street Market developer Brandon Lodge, who is currently taking bookings from food trucks Mondays through Saturdays with an expectation of up to 500 people per night.
 


Prairie, housed in the former 1940s warehouse building at 3 NE Eighth, will also offer a creative space for artists. Art is already an integral part of the space, thanks to a mural designed by artist Colin Healey, who started Prairie Artisan Ales with his brother Chase seven years ago.

Working with architects Allford Hall Monaghan Morris, the long-term plan for 8th Street Market include the possibility of a cocktail bar, coffee shop and retail stores, according to Lodge – who is in negotiations with a number of tenants.

“Getting the tenant mix right in the building is crucial, and we’ve been intentionally slow and steady with talking to people,” he adds.

With just under 20 staff on board, Prairie will be open seven days a week from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. More information can be found on their Facebook page here.
