July 1 is a big day for The Thirsty Beagle. If you’re a regular reader, you’ll know TTB will celebrate Canada Day on July 1, undoubtedly enjoying some Molson or Labatt products in honor of the True North Strong and Free. But people in Oklahoma will have cause to celebrate as well. July 1 marks the debut on tap of Mustang Brewing Co.’s Mustang Golden Ale. Company president Tim Schoelen tells me the beer will be available at McNellie’s and Tapwerks. The company is also hosting a pint night at McNellie’s on July 13. Mustang Brewing Co. is generating some publicity this week, and Schoelen sent out a press release yesterday mentioning that the company is drawing a lot of interest from distributors in several states. In a classy move, Schoelen gave a shout out to some of Oklahoma’s other start-up craft breweries: COOP in Oklahoma City, Marshall in Tulsa, and Battered Boar. There’s not a lot of information out there right now on Battered Boar, except that it’s an OKC/Edmond brewery with plans to release three varieties in bottles starting next month. On a side note, if you’re with Battered Boar and would like to get the word out to TTB readers, drop me a line at email@example.com. But back to Mustang Golden Ale. TTB did a three part interview with Schoelen in January and February. If you’re interested in learning a little more about him and the company, click here, here and/or here.
