Southeast Oklahoma is full of outdoor adventure, family fun and especially good brews. When looking to cover the Southeast Region of the Craft beer Trail, you’ll find four member breweries on your list plus plenty of beauty in that part of the state.
The Southeast is home to 12 state park including Beavers Bend State Park in Broken Bow. A boom in tourism recently, Broken Bow – also Hochatown and Beaver’s Bend – offers plenty of fun for the entire family including Beaver’s Bend Brewery. Their patio has plenty of outdoor games to keep the kids entertained (young and old), they have a tower you can climb to see views of the town and the best place to see the sun set and inside you’ll find several beers on tap and merchandise. Beaver’s Bend Brewery also offers a food truck on site – so you’ll never have to leave.
Another special place to explore in Southeast Oklahoma is the town of Durant. Durant is home to the popular Choctaw Casino and Resort, Fort Washita Historic Site and even the World’s Largest Peanut. You will also find one of Oklahoma’s newest breweries in downtown Durant – Lost Street Brewing Company. The Dewald family transformed an old bakery into a large brewery with a rotating selection of small-batch brews with a variety of flavors and styles for anyone and everyone.
Just a short drive from Durant, the last stop on the craft beer trail in Southeast Oklahoma takes you to Caddo, Oklahoma. Caddo is home of Harbinger Beer Company. From live music to food trucks, Harbinger continually is offering something great out of the brewery -including their beer. The husband wife duo running Harbinger sought to revitalize Caddo’s downtown area buying two storefronts that now makeup the brewery.
In McAlester Oklahoma, you’ll find plenty to do and plenty to drink. Bierkraft offers European-style beers brewed locally and offers something for everyone including their Irish Stout, Farmhouse Saison or even a New England IPA. Grab a flight, take a tour of the brewery and enjoy the large selection of beer.
