    Prairie Artisan Ale is happy to announce our partnership with The Shelton Brothers for 2013. This partnership will allow Prairie to have its products available across the Midwest, and eventually the entire US, and Europe. The initial products available will Be Prairie Ale, our Brett conditioned saison, Prairie Hop, our dry hopped saison, Prairie Standard, our session strength saison available on draft and in 6-packs, and a limited amount of Prairie Noir, our Imperial Oatmeal Stout aged in bourbon barrels. The Chicago and St Louis markets can expect to see our products first, with distribution spreading from there.

    We are shipping everything in 2 weeks. It will be in January for sure. I'm going to come up there for a week to meet everyone once we have a firm release date.

    They are in the middle of opening a distribution center in MO. Should be happening soon. The idea will be that I can ship beer there vs Boston keeping costs low and my bottles from being $15.

    I'm really looking forward to trying these beers! Unfortunately, as others have stated, the "Bros" don't have much street cred in StL these days...

    Rockford... just a little west of Chicago. Real saison country. Send your beer here!

    Any chance Chicago will see Prairie Pirate?

    Are there any stores in the southern part of Oklahoma that carry your beers? Or are they widely available around Oklahoma City? Thanks!

    Your brett'd saison sounds PHENOMENAL. Any chance of this making it to mid-Missouri (the Columbia area?).

    Pirate is going to be around 220 cases. I'd do more but the barrels are Very $$$. I'm going to sell about 100 cases in OK, the rest will ship. I'd Hess a handfull of cases will make it to Chicago. Any store in Southern OK can order cases. It's just me doing sales right now, Lawton is as far south as we go. Missouri is on hold till distribution for SB can get sorted out. The rum barrels are so sick, I wish I had more.

    Is it safe to assume none of this will get to Atlanta anytime soon? If it won't, I will definitely need to put out an ISO.

    Chase, liked Noir and Prairie a lot. I bought them on a trip to Tulsa at Biergarten.
    I wish we could get this in Texas.
