-A Firkin Friday is planned this week at McNellie’s OKC. The beer is called Rich Dick’s Ale (I’m not making that up). Here’s how Mustang describes the beer:
“This is a historic recipe from a beer commonly brewed in the mid-1700s, using ingredients that were common for beer-making at that time, brewed again (in) 2006 to celebrate the 300th anniversary of Ben Franklin’s birth in 1706. The beer is closest in style to a Strong Ale/Olde Ale. The aroma displays a toasty malt and mild corn sweetness with mild fruity esters up front, with a very mild hop bitterness supporting the malt. A caramel, toffee and slightly nutty taste with a smoky, grainy finish comes from an addition of molasses late in the boiling process. The beer is unfiltered, as were the beers of that time, is dark amber to light brown in color with a very slight haze, and weighs in at 7.5% ABV with 32 IBUs.”
-Another firkin, also featuring Rich Dick’s Ale, is planned for May 3 at McNellie’s Tulsa.
-A Summer Lager pint night is planned for May 7 at McNellie’s OKC.
-Mustang’s first beer dinner is planned for May 20 at Hensley’s Top Shelf Grill in Yukon. Tickets are $50 and can be had by calling Hensley’s. Contact info is at www.htsdining.com.
-Mustang’s third anniversary party will take the form of a three-day, three-city beer and music tour. Festivities will kick of July 19 in Forth Smith, Ark., continue the next day in Tulsa and wind up on July 21 in Oklahoma City. More details can be found by clicking right here.
