COOP Ale Works Expands

by Heide Brandes

For Oklahomans who are a fan of local beer, COOP Ale Works has good news and even more of its brew rolling out in cans for the public.

COOP Ale Works recently expanded, opening a new state-of-the art, 15,000-square-foot brewery near SW 44th and Council Road. The new home for Oklahoma’s local brewers is nearly three times the size of their original 5,200-square foot location at 51st and Western.

With the larger facility comes the ability for more product as well. Besides an increase in production, COOP Ale Works plans to expand its offering of canned beers, including the wildly popular F5 IPA.

JD Merryweather, one of the co-founders of COOP, said the new facility includes a 30-barrel brewing system that can produce several hundreds of gallons of beer per batch. In fact, because of the new system, COOP will be able to can all six of its regular beer products, instead of the three now available.

Merryweather added that COOP plans to begin offering Oklahoma beer out of state, starting with shipments to Arkansas, Missouri and Kansas in the summer and Texas in the fall.
