As you know, COOP Ale Works’ Native Amber claimed the title in the fourth annual TapWerks Beer Championship Series last week. This year’s BCS was great. We had thousands of votes cast to help determine Oklahoma’s favorite beer for 2011 and award the coveted Golden Taphandle Trophy. In the end, Native Amber posted a comfortable win in the finals over Redbud Pale Ale.
And here’s a statement from COOP Ale Works about their win:
This year’s BCS was a lot of fun for COOP Ale Works. It was our third time running and we are just wrapping up our third year of production this coming January.
The popularity of craft beer in Oklahoma is growing at a furious pace. Those of us that produce our beer in state are enjoying great growth, an appreciative community and lots of good times.
We are thankful Native Amber received the recognition that we at COOP feel it deserves. After all, we make it for you!
