They also have an Double IPA on deck, which im looking forward too. Not to mention this line up they are planning to produce in the future, a Coconut Cream Stout, Chocolate Porter, Chuck’s Pumpkin Ale, Stratford Peach Ale, Blue Face Scottish Ale, Belgian Abbey & a Fresh Hop Ale.
Things are definitely looking good on the Oklahoma Beer horizon.
