Mustang is headed to Edmond
I visited last Friday, and currently , it is the " nicest " tap room among our breweries, pic below. Had a couple of John Elkins brews. They are pouring a Whiskey Nemesis, imp stout aged in whiskey barrels with a hint of coconut.
my liquor store is still selling 16oz cans of F5. The date wasn't too old but they stopped making the 16oz cans a few weeks ago if I remember correctly.
Played a show the other night while Coop Ale was doing a taster there. Their DNR was pretty damn nice. It'll knock you on your ass if you don't watch out though, it's a 10pt. Got a sticker and Pilsner glass from them. This guy is going on my guitar case.

Just left click on the pic, and Google search the image. You won't find any similar results.
And even if you could, it doesn't mean Mallen did not enjoy that beer and he just found a pic on the nets.
I figured we had some bleed over from one or two of the FB groups to this thread.
And I did enjoy that beer. Wish I could buy a bottle for each of you. I was lucky to come across it at all.
Anyone know anything about Propolis Brewing?
They are doing an event at Roosevelt's (a new craft brew gastropub on Cherry street in Tulsa) and I don't really know anything about them. They are based in Washington, but that's all I know.
I believe they are doing one in OKC as well. Craft & Barrel is sponsoring it.
More from Thirsty Beagle , and I've been wondering about this myself. What happens when the novelty wears off ?
And speaking of Roughtail, they Tweeted parking advise this week .......... glad parking is a problem for them. Wonder how long till they look for a new location ? When COOP moved to their new location out west, they were saying they would be there five years or so, then try to find something downtown on the River.Roughtail is releasing the much-anticipated Wheat Dreams at the brewery today at 4. The brewery-only beer will be available in cans, growlers and pints. They're also putting out a draft-only run of Everything Rhymes with Orange. Roughtail is expecting a big crowd; they've even provided a snarky parking tutorial on their FB page. I think this is a really interesting release because we're starting to see how things are changing for brewers now that the newness of being able to sell from the brewery is wearing off. I've spoken to several brewers who said they were thrilled with the reaction and crowds on Aug. 26, but the real test would come several weeks down the road. Would foot traffic sustain on a regular basis? I think the key will be in the content, like with any business. Brewers will have to maintain a focus on giving consumers a reason to get out to the brewery. That's likely going to mean a pretty interesting proliferation of one-offs and special beers. Certainly it will be interesting to see if those offerings continue to pull people in.
The big thing will be the breweries who selected crappy parts of town (because, why not? You didn't need foot traffic.), who now would love foot traffic. It will be interesting to see what RT does. I think they ought to move to a better part of town. Their operation is not super big. Imagine if they could fit somewhere around the Plaza District, or even down along Film Row. Would be killer.
COOP's tap room beers can be found on their facebook page
If you like F5, there are two other local IPAs you should try: COOPs Alpha Hive and Roughtails Hoptomitrist. I can't find Alpha Hive anywhere. But it was my favorite release in 2016. As for the Hoptomitrist, I had two people from California in the past week tell me it's one of if not the best IPA they have tasted.
Oak & Ore is fantastic.
DNR - this stuff is amazing and will get you arrested. My buddy and I had 4-6 each at Blackbird before the 2013 Texas Tech game (that was delayed by weather). I remember Bell's touchdown pass. And then the next thing I recall was being at Louie's in midtown OKC. Chalk that one up to "never, ever again."

Anybody else tried oculto? I love this stuff. Infused with agave tequila. Its my go to beer now when im not drinking guiness. Yessir
Did anyone go to krebs today? I missed it
The local breweries in Beaver's Bend were junk. I had a Nitro Coffee Stout and it tasted like stale coffee.
We ate at Grateful Head last night and I had a pitcher of Marshall Dunkel Lager. It was mighty tasty!
Gotta decide to eat ................... or drink .....
Was visiting San Diego last week and got to check out the Ballast Point Brewery. It was fantastic. If you're an IPA fan go to the local liquor store and get a 6 pack of the Ballast Point Sulpin IPA.
Link is from 2011... but it had the Sculpin ranked as the #1 IPA in the country.
I brought this home from Broken Bow. Saving it for game day.
Anyone else doing the plaza pub crawl tonight? Got to get the pitcher!!!
I got the pitcher, shaker pint , and the mug. Time for the tulip glass at saints!! Prairie beer is great
I'm must be the only one here who thinks the Oklahoma breweries are shit. Sorry, but there's no refinement. It's like a 3 year finger painting with water colors while their older siblings are onto paint brushes and oil paints. The only ones I see who like these beers are Okies and I think it's a sentimental thing. They love to load every beer with way to much hops. But to each their own.
My favorite new bar is jack macs swill and grill in Plano. I'm building a few banks down there so I've been there quite a bit checking on my projects. Once a week they rotate their kegs to something new from one of the local Texas breweries. They also have a dedicated tx whiskey wall, but that's another topic. Anyways for their anniversary they had two beers that were terrific. They were both quads which tend to be my favorite. One was Noble ****, which is a Belgian style quad and a collaboration between noble brewery and four corners brewery (the ****) It was awesome!!!! Unfortunately it was only a limited run. Very very similar westvletaren 12. In flavor. Which unfortunately, both are quite rare. I believe this was 10.X if memory serves me correctly.
The second was from Lakewood, called lions share IV. It starts life as a traditional Belgian style quad but it's then aged in a brandy casket which imparts a tantalizing finish. The sweet brandy really shines through on the back end. You pick up cherries, figs, raisins, and toffee like so many Belgian style beers, but then the sweetness of the brandy hits and it's an explosion. It's like sweet on sweet on sweet. I use sweet loosely as your average beer drinker or iPa drinker wouldn't call a Belgian style quad sweet... But I have a sensitive palate and the figs, and grapes in them impart a sweetness that's unique. It is a 12.4 similar to st. Banardus ABT 12 so be careful.
My stash of local beers
I can understand people not liking a lot of the Choc or Mustang or (some) Coop. But Prarie and Roughtail make great beers - as I said earlier, I had two guys from Cali (and one from Dallas who took me to Lakewood last OU/Texas) rave about Alpha Hive and Hoptomistrist.
Note - Choc has a 13.6% whiskey barrel ale that is MF'g the shit ... and $10 a 12oz bottle.
Just got my first pack of 12th round. Sounds like a good beer to drink while we are on defense tomorrow.
