A few years ago when we were touring a bunch of distilleries in Kentucky, Willett was one of the ones we hit up and really enjoyed. So, that was the first time I tried Johnny Drum and enjoyed it. We brought a bottle back with us, but that’s been gone for awhile now, so sad. […]Read more "Review: Johnny Drum Private Stock"
Roughtail has really been making a name for themselves in the last few years with a series of outstanding IPAs. I was a little late to the game scrounging this up and was lucky to get a couple of cans. Roughtail has distinguished itself with the Adaption Series of small run and super fresh limited […]Read more "Review: ROUGHTAIL BREWING COMPANY 3RD ANNIVERSARY ALE"
Oh boy, I love me some Pirate Bomb. I love running around town trying to scrounge up a case with two bottle limits. I love emailing trade partners with the exciting news. I love putting a few back for later in the year, and drinking the first one the night I get home. I drank […]Read more "Review: Prairie Artisan Ales Pirate Bomb! Batch 3"
I love metal and I love TRVE. It’s exciting to get some of their fine products here in Oklahoma, TRVE’s distribution footprint barely makes it out of Colorado for the most part. While certainly not Prairie’s first attempt at a collaboration, this is the initial offering in the Prairie & Friends line. I have to […]Read more "REVIEW: PRAIRIE ARTISAN ALES/TRVE BREWING PRAIRIE & FRIENDS TRVE EDITION"
When Kate found a bottle of Charbay S Whiskey for only $60, she just couldn’t pass it up, and my decision to marry her all those years ago was yet again justified. We’ve got a bottle of the Charbay R5 (distilled from Bear Republic Racer 5 IPA) which is one of my favorite bottles to […]Read more "Barrels and Mash Cocktail: The Imperial Stout"
Flights are a glorious thing (whiskey, beer, it’s all good). They’re a great way to sample multiple beverages without spending too much money and leaving too drunk (although that depends on how many flights you get, I guess). So when we heard that Pub W was starting a monthly whiskey flight we had to see what […]Read more "Barrels and Mash Field Trip: Whiskey Flights at Pub W"
A new BA stout from Prairie? Sign me up! It looks like only 50-ish cases of this were released between Oklahoma and Missouri, so it wasn’t the easiest thing in the world to find. Most were lucky to get a single bottle (myself included) which makes me sad, but hey, it’s just beer, right? Company: […]Read more "Review: Prairie Artisan Ales Branson Jamboree"
I’ve lived in Oklahoma pretty much all of my life, and I have to say, it’s not a bad place to be. We’ve got the claim to some real national treasures including Reba McEntire, Shannon Miller, Brat Pitt, Chris Gains, and of course, Hanson. Those kids that sang “MMMBop” all those years ago are now all […]Read more "Review: Dead Armadillo Inland Porter"
Peter (the owner of The Well of OKC ) and Zed (the Store Manager) visited Jim Beam recently and took part in a Knob Creek private barrel selection. To hear Zed talk about tasting this bottle after it arrived is amazing, here is what he had to say… “I closed my eyes as I drank it because it reminded […]Read more "Review: Knob Creek Single Barrel The Well Selection"
Saturday was a fun day. We started it off by hitting the morning session at COOP Ale Work’s 7th Anniversary party. We drank some tiny beers, ate some Kaiteki Ramen, and talked to some good people. Then it was Tulsa time. Travis, owner and brewer at Nothing’s Left Brewing Co., was nice enough to invite us […]Read more "Barrels and Mash Field Trip: Nothing’s Left Beer Tasting"
