    That Dead Armadillo, I liked, but not as much as their Amber.

    What time of year does COOP's Territorial Reserve Stout come out? Any 2012 still floating around in Norman? Might be making a trip up there soon.

    Oklahoma brewery tours are now legal. 12oz of beer per visit. In case anybody on here didn't know.

    Couple of random thoughts that might spur some discussion. F5 in the cans is astounding and will always be inhabiting my fridge. I put that beer up against almost any IPA out there. Also stoked Avery is back on the shelves. One of the first craft breweries I got into so pretty loyal. Glad they came back, now to get Bear Republic back on the shelves. Finishing off a beer soaked night with a Firestone Walker 14th Anniversary is not a wise decision. Oh, and my liver function tests came back normal. They were only elevated due to meds:relaxed: Cheers my Okie friends!

    Also glad Avery is back. Super stoked that I can get "Joe's Pils" in a can now!

    That Joe's drinks so great on a hot day. (Okie brewers take note, stand & deliver!) I'm sure it will pricepoint better than almost everyone but Coop, Santa Fe &maybe Sierra Nevada. Those Caldera cans are beyond stupid priced for what they deliver....

    Where do you usually travel to? If its Tulsa I'd highly recommend following some bottle shops on FB.

    I usually go to the Biergartern, but a medical appointment put in orbit of Ranch Acres, so I hit them. They scratched my itch for Celebration. They had one of those giant bottles of Prairie Elia5eth, if I spending that kind of money, it's kegs ( or 5 gallon mini-kegs) or cases

    Contact Freddy, owner of Biergarten, on facebook. Ask him if there's anything he needs from here, good things could happen.

    Tulsa guy here. Thanks for the beer store recommendations. My usual go-to's are brother's at 71st and aspen and Collin's midtown.

    I am doing a 12 pack beer trade for Christmas with my two best friends who live in Arkansas and Alabama.
    Sadly, and obviously they get a way better selection in those states. I used seekabrew.com to find the stuff they don't have but it's mostly oklahoma breweries that i'm providing in my 12pack.

    so far I have:
    prairie Artisan - hoppy farmhouse ale
    Choc - bourbon barrel pale ale
    coop - f5
    marshall's - atlas IPA
    full sail - IPA
    Full sail - recipe #6
    MMMhops - haven't tried it but put it in as a gag
    Alpha Dog - Imperial IPA (got it super cheap, $1.69/22oz bomber)



    any other rec's? I'm not trying to spend a ton so the $7-$12 bombers are out of the question.

    Arkansas gets Prairie in Little Rock, Hot Springs and Fort Smith. I'm not sure about the rest of the state.

    I saw several Choc and Prairie brews when I visited Little Rock last month, but I'm sure they release a ton of stuff locally. You should be fine.
