I had the opportunity to visit some dear friends in Tulsa this weekend, Zach and Melissa French, who will be opening the Heirloom Rustic Ales brewery and taproom in November. The brewery and taproom are located at 2113 E. Admiral Boulevard on the old Route 66, in what was originally a gas station and later […]Read more "Heirloom Rustic Ales Brewery and Taproom Coming Along Nicely!"
Prairie has recently released a spate of new beers in cans, including Prison Rodeo, an IPA brewed with Idaho 7, Mosaic, Summit and Simcoe hops and Spaceship Earth coffee.

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"
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"
I finally got a chance to check out the completed Stonecloud tap room last week. It’s open early in the afternoon and seven days a week! It also happens to be on my way home from work, so I imagine I’ll be stopping by frequently for a quick pint and a crowler or two to […]Read more "STONECLOUD BREWING CO. Neon Sunshine"

405 recently hosted a four course beer dinner at The Abner in Norman, and while I wasn’t able to attend, I caught the tail end of it while hosting Bring Your Own Vinyl Night. The dinner sounded amazing with ceviche paired with 405’s Lime Tart and barbacoa stuffed peppers were paired with the newest release […]Read more "405 BREWING COMPANY Yeah! Session IPA"
I was a little surprised to see COOP trying out a pilsner, I believe this is their first wide lager? Usually I don’t get too excited about a pilsner, but a dry-hopped pilsner is another matter altogether. Let’s see what COOP can do with these Idaho 7 and Comet hops. Company: COOP Ale Works Location: […]Read more "COOP ALE WORKS Saturday Siren Dry-Hopped Pils"
I dropped by the brewery last week to drop off some empty kegs that Will at COOP was kind enough to donate for an event I had for work. It only made sense while I was on the southwest side that I pick up a few brewery only releases to try. I was happy to […]Read more "COOP ALE WORKS The Dagobah Citra East Coast Double IPA"
I ran down to Roughtail last week to pick up a couple of four packs of the newest Adaptation, batch eight in the series of unique IPA offerings. Flaked oats and wheat should contribute to mouthfeel, with Idaho 7, Calypso and Simcoe hops utilized for that fruity juiciness we’ve come to crave from Adaptation. I […]Read more "Roughtail Adaptation IPA: Batch 008, May 26, 2017"
