Mustang announces new brewery plans

Plenty of news out from Mustang Brewing this morning, the most interesting of which is an announcement that the company will not remain at the OKCity Brewing Cooperative building on E Sheridan Avenue.

That building was heavily damaged in the May 31 storms and the brewhouse was taken out of commission. Mustang announced this morning that they will instead build out a new brewhouse at their headquarters building at 520 N Meridian Ave.

Plans calls for a tasting room, merchandise store, event space and other amenities.

The Meridian building is a former doctor’s office that Mustang converted. It also includes an upstairs space that Mustang President Tim Schoelen is eyeing as a recording studio/jam session space for local or touring bands and musicians.

Plans call for the new brewhouse to open Nov. 1 to coincide with House Bill 1431 (the beer sampling bill) taking effect.

Schoelen said the brewhouse will remain open to Black Mesa Brewing and Anthem Brewing (although there’s an outside chance Anthem may be in it’s own building by then).

In other Mustang news:

-Mustang will offer up a cask-conditioned firkin of IPA rescued from the OKCity wreckage at this Friday’s firkin night at McNellie’s OKC.

-They’ll offer up a pin of the same beer the next night, Saturday, at McNellie’s Norman.

-Plans are also in the works for a pint night/firkin of rescued IPA at McNellie’s Tulsa on July 18.

-Mustang’s fourth anniversary party has been planned. The main event will be a concert set for July 20 at Wormy Dog Saloon featuring Uncle Lucius, Quaker City Night Hawks and Rise & Shine. There are many other events and specials on tap for the month of July, which I’ll post in upcoming blog posts.

-The company is expecting to soon launch its products in the Little Rock, Ark., area.

-Mustang had to re-brand its Route 66 Lager after receiving warning of possible trademark infringement with the name. It will now be called Mustang Sixty-Six. It may have had something to do with this, although Internet research shows there are accounts of several different Route 66 brands out there.
