Welcome to the first edition of the Barrels and Mash survey series! We thought it would be fun to to ask some cool people some random questions and take a break from the hard-hitting and award-winning professional journalism that you have come to know and love from us here at Barrels and Mash.
Now that Oklahoma breweries can sell full strength beer directly to the public, chances are that you’ll be seeing more of your favorite local brewers as you visit their respective breweries for pints, growler fills, and brewery-only releases. So, it seemed like a good time to ask some of them a couple of questions so we can get to know them better and maybe arm ourselves with a nice icebreaker or two for when we find ourselves on opposite sides of the bar or wondering around their taprooms.
For this series, we sent 5 Oklahoma brewers the same set of random questions and will be posting them as they come back. Let’s do it!
