A critically endangered Attwater's prairie-chicken hatched at the Sutton Center in 2022
Oklahoma’s longest-running craft beer festival is celebrating the ability to flock together again on Saturday, August 27th from 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at the Cox Business Center!
Wild Brew is a one-of-a-kind indoor event that combines first-rate beers by artisan brewers from the U.S. and around the world with cuisine from Tulsa’s best restaurants. The annual fundraiser supports The Sutton Center - an internationally-recognized, nonprofit wildlife conservation organization.
The annual craft beer festival helps to raise funds for the George Miksch Sutton Avian Research Center, best known for their work with bald eagles. Only a decade ago, they were on the endangered list; now, they are a regular part of our Oklahoma skyline. The funding from this year’s celebration will aid the crew at Sutton, currently engaged in recovery efforts for two of the rarest birds in North America—the Attwater’s Prairie-Chicken and the Masked Bobwhite, both of which are endangered species.
Wild Brew 2022 will feature hundreds of beers to choose from, and the unique opportunity for guests to chat with brewers one-on-one. Music from Midlife Crisis Band will keep the party hopping, along with silent auction experience packages, custom brewery tours, trips and much more. Guests will also get to be up close and personal with some special feathered friends.
“For Wild Brew’s 24th, year a variety of birds will be coming to meet guests,” says Audra Fogle, Assistant Director for The Sutton Center. “The Sutton Center is grateful for the tremendous support of the brewers, restaurants and everyone who will be coming out for Wild Brew. The 'greatest party ever hatched' is made even better because it’s all for a great cause.”
Patron ticket holders can start sipping early at 4 p.m. and have their own plush area to perch during the event. Every ticket includes all-inclusive access to more than 200 beers from Tulsa’s best breweries and samples from 50 of Tulsa’s best restaurants. Tickets are on sale now. Space is limited to 2000.
Keep our local wildlife conservation organization, the Sutton Center, flying high.
The event will be held at COX Business Center in Exhibit Halls A & B.
