    I drink quite a bit of COOP Native Amber. Choc has a lot of good stuff. Haven't tried Prairie yet. Marshall Old Pavillion is very nice, too. Still a lot of Okie beers to try. Really proud of this state and the way we've stepped up our game.

    I'm quite fond of Native Amber as well. I usually have McNellie's Pub and/or something from Krebs on hand at all times. Wild Brew 2012 was so enjoyable I bought every bottle in town - still have a couple left. I picked up a couple Prairie Noir at Brown's in Stillwater - can't wait to try that. Nobama was a decent beer too - not a pretty beer, but a tasty one anyway. I'm a big fan of El Cucuy too - love black IPAs.

    For me, it's a tie between Prairie Ale and Prairie Hop. Two very fantastic beers. I'm down to one bottle each and being in Houston, I really wish I had easy access to more.

  9. COOP F-5 and DNR are still my favorites. I have been impressed by the Prairie lineup and Mustang's Imperial Court Stout is excellent! Also Black Mesa ESB and Anthem Golden One are very good.
     
  10. F-5 is my goto on tap, and it's hard to beat the Old Pavilion. Prairie is making waves and El Cucuy is world class, but the Choc Dubbel is hands down my favorite all time Oklahoma beer, and with a price that can't be beat.

    Prairie Noir, Prairie Hop, And then Choc Winter Stout in that order.
     
  12. Cant wait for arrow head pale ale.

    And Prairie Ale is my favorite local brew at the moment.

    What did you like so much about this beer? I picked up a six pack this weekend. Not bad, but nothing special. I liked the Spring IPA a lot more.

    Where is the closest place to Denton TX to get some Prairie Artisan Ales in my gullet? I did a little digging, and its looking like OKC or Lawton.. but I thought I'd ask before I make the trip out.

    Does anyone know anybody involved in anthem? I tried their sour maybe... 2 years ago? Been waiting for that to ever come out. Golden one is a decent beer but their sour was actually something to write home about.
     
  22. Anyone have a clue when Oklahoma can expect to get Green Flash Palate Wrecker?

    Nine-One-Eightor is a one-off, so one keg might find its way to mcnellies Tulsa. Chupacabra has been been put off some more due to two new beers getting a higher priority. A dunkel and a 5yr anniversary beer.

    Went to Grandad's in OKC last Saturday w/ my brother. Had a coupla fresh draws of Coop F-5. Absolutely incredible beer. Is the canning thang still in the works? I'd put it up against any of the admittedly superb Cali IPAs I've experienced.

  37. As a beer nerd who was born and raised in Tulsa, but living in Los Angeles for the last 12 years, I was thrilled to see bottles of Prairie sitting on the shelves of my local bottle shop in LA!

    Makes a transplanted Okie proud.

    Keep up the good work!

    Heard on the news that OK breweries can serve free samples now. Up to 12oz. Is that the standard among the other states?
     
  39. Not yet. It has to pass the Senate...
     
  40. There really isn't a standard across all states from what I can tell. In Texas, I think, they can't give out free samples. But if the brewery charges for the tour, samples can be given out. When I took a tour at Yazoo Brewery in Nashville, TN, they gave out nearly two full pints of samples from three different beers. But again, it was not a free tour.
