Angry Scotsman Brewing opening new taproom
Angry Scotsman Brewing Co.’s new taproom will open at noon Saturday at 704 W. Reno Ave. in Oklahoma City.
Ross and Stephanie are co-founders of Angry Scotsman Brewing.
The taproom is in a 1930s-era building that formerly served as an auto repair shop, although the structure has been vacant for several years. Harper took over the building, which has original walls and trusses, in 2017. After months of exterior and interior work on the building, he began production there in October, following a yearlong stint at the Brewers Union.
“I could go on for hours about the excitement and potential we see for this part of Oklahoma City,” Ross Harper said. “There is great character in the old warehouses in the area, and we hope to be a catalyst for additional development and expansion.”
He opened to the public in November, but has been serving beer out of a temporary, pop-up taproom surrounded by his brewing equipment and storage space.
On Saturday, he’ll open the new, dedicated 1,800-square-foot taproom space, along with more than 5,000 square feet of patio space. The bar features 24 taps to pour Angry Scotsman’s signatures styles, like Rusty Kiltpin Scottish-Style Export Ale and Night Terror Black India Pale Ale, but they will also offer wine and soda to satisfy non-beer drinkers.
“We’ve given a lot of consideration to every aspect of the taproom,” Stephanie Harper said. “We want to provide a space that’s comfortable and functional at the same time; a place where you can stop by before taking in a show at the theater, or just to grab a pint and catch up with friends.”
Ross Harper moved from Glasgow to Florida in 2001 for school, and then relocated to Oklahoma in 2005.
The space will be open seven days a week: from 3 to 10 p.m. Mondays through Thursdays; from noon to 11 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays; and from noon to 7 p.m. on Sundays.
Saturday’s grand opening party will feature food trucks and live music, with several special-edition beers.
On Sunday, Angry Scotsman will open early – at 10 a.m. – to serve as a post-race destination for those taking part in the Oklahoma City Memorial Marathon.
