In case you’ve been living under one of those rocks without access to social media or the Internet, International Stout Day is tomorrow, and at least two Oklahoma pubs have some pretty good beer lineups ready to go to celebrate the occasion.
First, the lineup from TapWerks Ale House in Oklahoma City:
-Prairie Artisan Ales: Bomb! and Pirate Bomb! on draft
-COOP Ale Works: Belgian imperial stout aged on cognac-soaked French oak, and a firkin of Car Bomb Stout.
-Bricktown Brewery, a cream stout.
-Choc Beer Co.: Apple Butter Winter Stout (Wha??)
-Tallgrass Brewing Co.: Pumpkin Buffalo Sweat
-Marshall: Black Dolphin Stout
-Roughtail: Polar Night Stout
-Dead Armadillo: Coffee stout
TapWerks will also feature a stout-inspired food menu with some unique offerings. UPDATE: Here is the food menu.
Next up, over in Tulsa we have R Bar and Grill:
-Great Divide: All five Yetis on tap, plus a flight featuring Oatmeal, Oak Aged, Chocolate Oak Aged and Espresso Oak Aged Yeti.
-Dead Armadillo: Double shot coffee vanilla bean stout
-Choc: Apple Butter Winter Stout
-Tallgrass: Coffee Chocolate Buffalo Sweat
-Praire: Bomb! on draft
-A couples notes on Prairie Artisan Ales: The Beer That Saved Christmas, an old ale aged in oak barrels, is expected in stores as early as tomorrow. Also, a re-stock of Prairie Standard is expected, which will be the last run of Standard, as the beer is apparently being discontinued. (h/t BierGarten)
-The Thirsty Beagle entered a Belgian Double in the FOAM Cup homebrewing contest. Keep your fingers crossed!
-Boulevard Nutcracker Ale and Anchor Christmas are showing up in stores now.
-Sometimes I’m so funny.
-Here’s a gingerbread ale recipe the American Homebrewers Association posted today.
-Up until now, if you wanted Tallgrass’ Vanilla Bean Buffalo Sweat, you had to buy a mixer pack. Looks like it’ll hit Oklahoma store shelves on its own here in the next few days.
