This is the first, I repeat, FIRST Four Roses Single Barrel release in Oklahoma…maybe. It’s the first we’ve seen or lucky enough to get our hands on anyway. It was chosen by Central Liquor Company, who is distributor in Oklahoma. Most single barrels are chosen by a store, but Oklahoma is a bit different, so […]Read more "Four Roses Single Barrel OESV: Central Liquor Company"
If you would have told me when we started Barrels and Mash two-and-a-half years ago that I would one day be scrolling through a porn star’s Twitter feed while doing research for a whiskey blog post, I would have thought you were joking. Yet here I am sitting in Kate and I’s whiskey den on the morning […]Read more "Doom’s American Whiskey"

My lovely cohort Kris saved me a trip to Midwest City and grabbed a few four packs at the release of Adaptation batch 9, though he robbed me of a chance to drink in the taproom! For batch nine, Golden Promise malts are paired with oats and wheat for that creamy mouthfeel, and hopped with […]Read more "ROUGHTAIL ADAPTATION IPA: Batch 009, August 18, 2017"
It’s 9:30 am on a Saturday. I have a plastic cup full of FDR Coffee Stout from 405 Brewing Co. in one hand and a bag full of carbs in the form of pretzels, Cheez-Its, and Animal Crackers in the other. Rarely could one justify starting a day this way, but I’m in good company, […]Read more "The 2017 Oklahoma Craft Beer Summit"
I was excited to see a personal favorite of mine up on the Digital Pour board, an imperial stout aged on toasted coconut. This is a variant of Stonecloud’s Turtlehead stout base, but aged on the coconut instead of coffee. Available in short supply at the tap room only, no crowlers, get it while it’s […]Read more "STONECLOUD BREWING CO. Touching Cloth Imperial Stout"
