Black Mesa set to return to Oklahoma beer scene

Nick Trougakos Published: September 13, 2013

Word came out last night that Black Mesa Brewing is getting back on the beer-making bandwagon.

Black Mesa has been unable to produce beer since May 31, when storms heavily damaged the OKCity Brewing Cooperative near downtown.

The cooperative was home to Black Mesa, Mustang Brewing and Anthem Brewing. Mustang is now setting up a new brewhouse at its corporate headquarters on N Meridian Avenue, but that set-up isn’t expected to be ready until November.

In the meantime, Black Mesa announced last night that until the new Mustang brewhouse is operational, they will borrow space at O’Fallon Brewery in O’Fallon, Mo., and expect to have beer back in the Oklahoma market next month.

From Black Mesa’s FB page:

“Black Mesa is back! Our good friends at the O’Fallon Brewery outside St. Louis, MO have agreed to let us take over their brewery on occasion while the brewing cooperative is being rebuilt in OKC. The first brew session is in the books, and Black Mesa will start pouring from taps again in mid-October. In the meantime, you should do yourself a favor and order up one of O’Fallon’s tasty brews next time you find yourself in MO or one of the other 13 states where you can find their beer.”

Black Mesa’s Brad Stumph said the beermakers are relieved to be back in action.

“It was an excruciatingly long summer on the sidelines,” Stumph said. “We are glad to be back to doing what we do.”
