A commemorative glass celebrating Oak Street Draft House’s third anniversary.


A huge turnout for one of Denton’s popular bars. Couches were packed with cozy drinkers inside but the mud didn’t stop Oak Street fans from packing the benches out back on Wednesday afternoon.


Co-owner John Williams, left, and co-owner Jeff Brightwell smile wide at the success of the celebration. Brightwell said a teacher once told him,“find someone who’s got it going and latch on, that’s John.”


A T-shirt memorializing the iconic old housefront of OSDH for the bar’s third anniversary. Pan Ector prepared the shirts for the occasion, the same screen printers who cranked out tees for Eastside’s one-year anniversary as well as Dia de Los Muertos and Oaktopia.
