You're probably thinking, "That sounds great, but I've never bought a car or a computer without first reading the Wikipedia definitions for car and computer—I'm not about to buy a Groupon either without a briefing." Well neither would we, and since this is everyone's first Groupon, allow us to briefly explain how it works.
How Groupon Works
Groupon is a combination of the words group and coupon. Each day, we offer an unbeatable deal on the best of Oklahoma City: restaurants, spas, sporting events, theater, and more. By promising businesses a minimum number of customers, we get discounts you won't find anywhere else. We call it "collective buying power."
If you want to get the deal, just click BUY before the offer ends at midnight. If the minimum number of people (20 for today's deal) sign up by the end of the day, you'll get a printable gift certificate in your inbox the next morning that you can use whenever you want (well, at least until the deal expires—today's expires in one year). If not enough people join, no one gets the deal (and you won't be charged), so invite your friends to make sure you get the discount!
It's nice to wake up to something new every day. Some people get their daily fix from desk calendars with a cute puppy and a funny caption every morning. Groupon is like a desk calendar, except the puppy is an unbeatable discount and the funny caption is a profound reflection on the flowers and needles growing from life's cactus. We selflessly share our deep insights, hoping that you will join our mob of consumers, thus strengthening our collective buying power and commanding even better deals.
Every winter, enormous beer barrels roam the open ocean from the tip of Tierra del Fuego to the top of Pike's Peak, where they return each year to spawn. Tap into this season's sudsy bounty with today's Groupon. For $8, you get $20 worth of handcrafted beers and hearty, beer-battered fare from Bricktown Brewery, Oklahoma's first brewpub. The refurbished, turn-of-the-century candy factory is located at the center of the revitalized Warehouse District, a short walk—or an unusually long stride—from the Renaissance Convention Center and Bricktown Ballpark. Bricktown is open every day starting at 11 a.m. (noon on Sundays), and the kitchen closes at 10 p.m. (midnight on Fridays and Saturdays); the bar stays open later.
Bricktown keeps three of its signature brews on tap year-round ($5 a pint). Its flagship Copperhead Amber Ale strikes fast with a caramel malt and a clean finish. The unfiltered Bison American Wheat roams free, leaving only a yeast undertone in its wake, while Darkhose Brown thunders across the palate with a complex blend of two hops varieties and a roasted, creamy body. Bricktown brewmasters also conjure forth seasonal stouts, lagers, India pale ales, and varietals made from hard-to-find ingredients such as tumbleweed juice and ghost sweat.
Because nothing goes with beer like cooked meat—other than sports, friends, video games, outdoor parties, summer nights, breathing, yoga, and more beer—Bricktown offers a full menu of grilled goodies. Sides such as fried okra, garlic mashed potatoes, and cole slaw snuggle up to entrees such as the brewery pot roast slow-cooked and served over a slab of garlic toast buried in rich rosemary-mushroom gravy ($10). Beer-battered french fries and onion rings tag-team your tongue alongside burgers such as the ranch-style barbecue—a hefty half-pound patty summited by honey-cured bacon, ranch dressing, cheddar cheese, fried onions, and barbecue sauce ($8.49). If you've confused Bricktown with its lighter and less big-bad-wolf-resistant competitors, Strawtown and Sticktown, you can still enjoy less weighty fare such as the ale-infused French onion soup with crisp croutons and melted Swiss cheese ($5), as well as a handful of salads like the grilled chicken Caesar ($8).
Amid this hallowed hall of hops' exposed wood beams and copper-piping trim, you'll also find six high-definition televisions tuned to the big game or local mixed martial knitting cage match, as well as six billiard tables and a lineup of dart boards. Bring along four friends or more to Bricktown and you can combine two Groupons for $40 worth of satiation and libation.
- The portions are GIGANTIC!!! The smoky quality of the meats was awesome and the cole slaw might be the best I have ever tasted. – rtoumbs, Citysearch
- An order of fries are a must! They are fried with some of the skins left on and you get a huge plate, enough to make a meal of them by themselves. – Kimberly G., Insider Pages
- Good atmosphere. Fast, friendly service. Food is delicious. Reasonably priced. Great selection of beers. – joefro, Kudzu
