New Nibbles

Jackson Fall is tired of Taco Bell.

When it comes to late-night dining in Oklahoma City, options are limited. So Fall created a soon-to-launch late-night food delivery service.

Enter Nibbles.

“We’re targeting the late-night audience who don’t want to or can’t go out but want something better than fast food,” he said.

Nibblesokc.com will feature a rotating menu of entrees, appetizers and desserts including stuffed mushrooms, a Juicy Lucy burger, breakfast burritos, baked macaroni and cheese and more.

But unlike OrderUp or Postmates, Nibbles will have its own kitchen with hours much friendlier to night owls: 9 p.m. to 3 a.m.

Nibbles will be open Friday through Sunday in a limited delivery area near Oklahoma City University, but Fall said he hopes it will soon expand to a 24/7 kitchen delivering all over the metro.

Beer laws

Following the recent 2016 Oklahoma Craft Beer Summit at Oak & Ore, eight Oklahoma breweries are coming together to create a beer to support the Craft Beer Association of Oklahoma (CBAO) and lobbying efforts to reform beer laws in the state.

Collaboration for Legislation is a pale ale created by brew masters from Anthem Brewing Company, Choc Beer Company, COOP Ale Works, Iron Monk Brewing Company, Marshall Brewing Company, Prairie Artisan Ales, Renaissance Brewing Company and 405 Brewing Co.

There will be 50 barrels brewed and sold by the pint at the breweries, with proceeds going to CBAO.

Representatives from Oklahoma breweries and Sen. Stephanie Bice spoke at the summit to a crowd of about 150 on Jan. 13 about challenges facing the industry and the potential for changes to laws that prevent breweries from selling their beers to consumers.

The summit is expected to be an annual event that will bring together members of the state’s burgeoning craft beer industry and beer enthusiasts from across Oklahoma.
