Black Mesa to introduce first bottled offering

by Nick Trougakos Published: September 19, 2013

I reported last week that Black Mesa had returned to the brewing game by using the facilities at O’Fallon Brewery in Missouri.

Now it looks like Black Mesa is putting that arrangement to good use by producing its first bottled offering:

Black Mesa Double ESB checks in at 9.6% ABV and pays tribute to the recovery in Oklahoma following May’s storms and tornadoes — the May 31 storm temporarily knocked Black Mesa out of business when it destroyed the OKCity Brewing Cooperative.

The label includes this description:

“A toast to Shawnee, Moore, El Reno, and Oklahoma City, a time to rally. To the tornadoes that gave us a time to rally, a beer rated EF-U.”


I’m working on getting a little more information about the beer and when it will be available in stores.
