There’s plenty coming up on the Oklahoma beer horizon. Here’s a sampling:
-Part two of Choc’s Project Hop is tonight at McNellie’s OKC. This week’s frikin is a dry-hopped 1919 using Citra hops. Citra hops are usually used for aroma purposes and are described as having a heavy tropical aroma of lychee, mango, papaya and pineapple. Interesting.
-Marshall Brewing Co. has scheduled a series of firkin events this month. Wednesday will be a vanilla-bean infused Big Jamoke Porter at Main Street Tavern in Broken Arrow; Jan. 13 and 19 will be a Big Jamoke Porter Firkin infused with toasted ancho chili, cocoa nibs and bittersweet chocolate. Jan. 13 is at McNellie’s OKC, while the latter date is at McNellie’s Tulsa.
-COOP Ale Works has announced that its third anniversary party will be Saturday, Jan. 14. Further details to come. In other COOP news, expect to see COOP’s Territorial Reserve Oak Aged Imperial Stout on store shelves by the middle of next week.
-Mustang Brewing, which up until now has used generic gold bottle caps, announced they will have new bottles caps on beers available later in February.
