Firkin time.

We will be tapping another of those firkins on Saturday, Apr. 22, 2017 at noon. This time, it’s Smoked Red with sage. Better stop in and see what the heck head brewer Conor has been experimenting with. We are very intrigued…



Larry Myer. Live music.

Larry Myer live music at West O Beer

We love our Iowa singer/songwriters, and here’s another to add to the list. Larry Myer is an energetic singer, songwriter and acoustic performer. He has played more than 200 towns in his homestate of Iowa and more than half the states of America, working his way up from a busking street performer to concert venues around the country. He has released two recordings, the landmark "Flatlands" CD and the followup, "The Ring and Other Ballads".  Larry is also a winner of the Branson Songwriting Contest.

"Myer's voice is the trademark of Iowa's best acoustic rock. His lyrics are gentle yet biting. His voice simultaneously pleads and demands."
The Des Moines Register

Welcome Larry Myer to the tasting room on April 8, 2017, 7–10pm.

Rock’n Bac’n Brew’n 2017

Time once again for Rock’n Bac’n Brew’n, and West O is again one of the main sponsors along with Doll Distributing. If you are anywhere near Spencer IA you know all about this (3rd) annual event. Here’s some details:

  • We will have 2 beers on tap for sale (CocO Stout and 6 Foot 6 IPA)
  • West O will have a booth with samples from 3-8 (Only CocO Stout and 6 Foot 6)
  • Our famous Giant Jenga and Bean Bag Toss will be there

Is West O Beer open year round? Of course!

It’s true that some of The Lakes closes up shop during winter…but not us. Our West Okoboji tasting room is open year round, every day* but Mondays, weekends are hopping, and Wednesdays are our famous West O Wednesday.

West O Beer - West Okoboji - Open Year Round

So come visit us! The tasting room is warm, the atmosphere is warmer, and there are plenty of craft brews on tap, including our gold medal-winning CocO Stout. Order in some food. And oh yeah: kids are welcome – games to play – even root beer on tap.

See you soon. Cheers!

Tues–Fri: 2 to 10, Sat: noon to 10, Sun: noon to 8, Closed Mondays. WEST O WEDNESDAY: 2 to 10, Growler/Pint Discounts All Day

(Not to mention that brewing beer is that 24/7 behind-the-scenes thing that laughs at us if we try to put it on a schedule, but that’s another story.)
