TULSA, Okla. — International Beer Day is August 2 and Tulsa is home to a variety of popular breweries.
In 1978, there were 89 breweries in the U.S., according to Forbes. Today, that number has exploded to almost 6,400.
We're taking a look at some of the best breweries in town to celebrate the international holiday.
Welltown opened in June 2017 and now features a variety of favorites and seasonal beers just in time for International Beer Day including Siesta Cerveza, Caribbean Queen Stout, and Sandy Jorts Tropical IPA.
International Beer Day falls on First Friday Art Crawl night and Welltown will have live music from Underwater Towns starting at 7 p.m. Friday.
The brewers at Prairie make their home at Prairie Brewpub on North Main Street near East Cameron Street in downtown Tulsa.
Highlighted on their list of beers on tap is their "Bomb!" stout that carries an ABV percentage of 13.
Other highly-rated beer on tap during International Beer Day include Vape Tricks, All Y'all, and Birthday Bomb!
Marshall Brewing Company, Tulsa's first production craft brewery, is a popular spot just outside of downtown on Wheeling Avenue near East 6th Street.
Marshall began crafting its beer in Tulsa in 2008 and has since spread its brand outside of the brewery into several local restaurants and bars. Their flagship beers such as Atlas and Sundown Wheat can be found seemingly anywhere in town.
Marshall's Tap Room features 24 taps and a long list of seasonal and year-round drafts.
Friday's beer "holiday" will find the Tap Room hosting Toasty Pros Food Truck and featuring live music from Dave Les Smith.
Nothing's Left Brewing Co. is located in Tulsa's Pearl District at 6th and Rockford and started crafting in Oklahoma in 2015.
Nothing's Left specializes in experimenting with its beers and testing them out with customers outside of its brewery before moving some of them into production.
Highlighted by its Galaxy Pale Ale and Strawberry Blonde, their beer list features "Special Release" beers throughout the year and can be found at their taproom.
Similar to Marshall, Dead Armadillo Brewery's beers can be found all over town in liquor stores, bars, and restaurants.
Dead Armadillo's taproom can be found on East 4th Street near South Madison Avenue just outside of downtown Tulsa's East Village.
In addition to the year-old popular Amber, their beer list features several seasonal options including its newest summer beer, "High Tops."
On International Beer Day on Friday, Dead Armadillo is hosting live music from Indecision Band as well as food trucks and its wide-ranging array of beers.
Cabin Boys Brewery's taproom can be found in Tulsa's Kendall-Whittier neighborhood on 7th Street near Utica.
Cabin Boys began as a family-owned keepsake in the woods of Catoosa in 2010 before evolving into a full-fledged brewery in Tulsa.
Their beers take on a European-style crafting process along with a local, experimental approach to produce several types of beers for different tastes.
Along with staples such as Cast-A-Line Kolsch, Huntman IPA, and Goin' Stag, the Cabin Boys taproom features Kilkennys Irish Red and a selection of seasonal options.
International Beer Day at Cabin Boys Brewery will be celebrated with "Goin Stag PINT NIGHT" with live music and food from 1907 Barbecue.
American Solera is located just outside out downtown Tulsa on South 49th West Avenue just off West 21st Street -- but not for long.
The brewery announced last year they would be moving into the Kendall-Whittier neighborhood -- cozied up next to Cabin Boys and Marshall Brewing Company.
In addition to their taproom, their draft beers can be found locally at Lone Wolf, Society Burger, The Tavern, and Mother Road Market.
For consistency and convenience, there are a few Bricktown Brewery locations in and around Tulsa to choose from for those not looking to celebrate International Beer Day closer to downtown.
Broken Arrow Brewing Company just opened its first brewery in June 2018.
