Formed in 1938, the Beer Distributors of Oklahoma (BDO) is the state organization for licensed independent beer distributors in Oklahoma, the majority of which are second or third generation family-owned small businesses.
The BDO mission is to represent and advocate for beer distributors, to serve as their unified voice on legislation and regulation, to encourage the responsible consumption of beer and to assist distributors in their business and community roles.
Each day, BDO members bring their products to the Oklahoma consumer -- products of the highest quality with tremendous selection, outstanding service and at very low prices.
The economic impact of Oklahoma’s beer industry and the Beer Distributors of Oklahoma is very real. Job creation and payroll, along with property, income and excise taxes is very significant as is BDO reinvestment in and support of local communities. Most of all, the Beer Distributors of Oklahoma are a group of small businessmen and businesswomen working hard to make a living in Oklahoma – no different than any other small business. We are proud of our heritage, our state, our communities and the products we sell.
