Sold only at the Maker’s Mark gift shop, this cask strength expression of Maker’s 46 was released in Fall of 2015 and is sold in 375ml bottles with zero shits given in regards to the label, which is white with plain black text. You would think a company that dips all their bottles in colored wax […]Read more "Review: Maker’s 46 Cask Strength"
Maker’s Mark made only one product for around 50 years before adding a second expression to their offerings. Maker’s 46 was released in 2010, and it’s the same whiskey as normal Maker’s with the only difference: an extra aging process. The whiskey is dumped at the same time as the normal expression (at around 5 or […]Read more "Review: Maker’s 46"
I’ve been on a huge beer kick lately (Beer is booming in Oklahoma if you haven’t noticed), so this is a great Bourbon to get me back in the Bourbon review game. I’ve actually never owned or opened a bottle of Maker’s until this point. And, we actually went to the distillery a few years […]Read more "Review: Maker’s Mark"
The new batch of Brandy Barrel Uroboros just hit the shelves this week, so we anxiously busted a bottle of last year’s release out of the cellar and got to drinking! Last year this release out shined the Bourbon barrel variation (which is crazy for me to say, but it’s true) so we were pumped […]Read more "Anthem Brandy Barrel Uroburos Batch 1 and Batch 2 Vertical"
Trae was kind enough to drop off a pre-release bottle of the new batch of FDR for personal consumption, but I decided to just review it in time for the release this week. An interesting brew, they added coffee directly into the boil. I’ve had the opportunity to sample FDR on a few occasions over […]Read more "Review: 405 FDR (2016)"
A recent TTB label approval is sending waves through the community of Bourbon lovers and their future bank accounts as this label shows Diageo is most likely planing to release a 24 year-old single barrel Bourbon under the Blade and Bow label. The Bourbon looks to be distilled at the mythological Stitzel-Weller Distillery in 1991, the […]Read more "Some Stitzel-Weller juice is on its way, start selling everything you own!"
Prairie’s second brewery-only release, Trogdor sold out incredibily quickly and since we were in Kansas City for the release, we totally missed out. Luckily there are amazing people on this planet like Freddy of Craft & Barrel and Chris of The Fur Shop (Trogdor is actually his cat) who hooked us up with a bottle for this review. Thanks, guys!

Willows Family returns with another bizarre label and another bizarre and undefinable beer. An intriguing mixture of coffee and farmhouse, this promises to be something new. I can only hope that I don’t see nothing wrong with a little Bump N’ Grind… Company: Willows Family Ales Location: Tulsa, OK ABV: 8% Style/Description: Farmhouse Ale with […]Read more "Review: Willows Family Ales Bump N’ Grind"
Kate and I were out of town for Valentine’s Day last weekend, so we are celebrating it a week late and I decided it would be fun to start off the festivities with a line up of Dry Hopped Sour Ales. Prairie’s Funky Gold Simcoe (FGS) just came out a couple of days ago, then […]Read more "Dry Hopped Sour Showdown"
I woke up this morning thinking I wanted to write a bit ‘ol thing about all the Oklahoma alcohol law reform and the recent Budweiser ad campaigns, but then I looked over at The Thirsty Beagle and he is doing a perfectly fine job at it. Its getting decent shares on Facebook, and honestly I’ve been kind […]Read more "The Anheuser-Busch Shit Show"
