Too early to start planning for St. Pat's Day? (Part 3)

Nick Trougakos Published: March 7, 2013
I’ve reported on the St. Patrick’s Day plans for both TapWerks and McNellie’s OKC, so how about we head a little bit south today and tell you about what’s going at The Abner Ale House in Norman.

The Abner will have an outdoor celebration on St. Patrick’s Day, with events staged in the parking area behind Syrup and Guestroom Records.

Festivities are scheduled to kick off at 1 p.m. and guests can expect two or more bands to perform. In addition to St. Patrick’s Day hoopla, Abner is also planning a few upcoming firkin nights worth noting:

-March 30: Choc Beer Co.

-April 14: Marshall Brewing Co.

-April 20: COOP Ale Works

As the countdown clock on the Abner webpage says, there are only about 9.5 days until St. Pat’s.

Daily Pints

-Marshall Brewing will be at McNellie’s Tulsa at 5 p.m. today with an extremely limited draft release of stout aged on star anise. Intriguing.

-The Thursday pint night at TapWerks tonight features Murphy’s Stout and Red. Twenty-ounce pours for $5, and you get to keep the glass.

-Interesting story here about the push to put craft beer in bigger bottles. The question raised: Is beer trying too hard to be like wine? I can see how it can be daunting to finish a 22 oz. bottle of 10% beer by yourself in one sitting, but also, there are worse problems than having strong beer in big bottles. Like having no beer at all. Or having a field mouse die in your wall and stink up the house. You know, real-world problems.
