Marshall aims for more Arrowhead availability

by Nick Trougakos Published: May 29, 2013
Passing along a press release sent out today by Marshall Brewing. They’re ramping up for another run of their summer seasonal Arrowhead Pale Ale, and have secured more of the beer’s signature Citra hops so they can produce more and keep up with demand.

Also of note, Marshall is working to develop a more predictable supply line on Citra so they can produce Arrowhead year-round. That would be great!

TULSA — Marshall Brewing Co., known for its seasonal favorites, gears up for the release of Arrowhead Pale Ale May 30. Tulsa’s only brewer has been hard at work increasing brewing capacity since the wildly successful release of Arrowhead Pale Ale in 2011 left beer lovers in short supply.

The 2013 release of Arrowhead Pale Ale marks the third year that Marshall has released its summer seasonal.

“We are often asked to add Arrowhead Pale Ale to our year-round beer lineup, but we have been unable to keep up with demand the past two years,” said Wes Alexander, Marshall’s director of sales and marketing. “Arrowhead’s signature hop is Citra. It lends an aroma and character of citrus and tropical fruit. As a relatively new hop, it is not widely available. We have secured a larger supply than in previous years leaving us hopeful to meet demand for the summer season. We are working with hop suppliers to possibly secure a more stable year-round supply which would permit us to make Arrowhead Pale Ale a year round offering.”

Arrowhead is an American pale ale crafted to provide refreshment as a lighter, highly quaffable ale complimented by unique aromatic citrus notes from its hops that both tickle the nose and enliven the palate. Complexity, balance, and softness make Arrowhead Pale Ale an easy drinking summer seasonal.

Arrowhead Pale Ale will be available in six packs at liquor stores, restaurants, and bars across the state of Oklahoma May 30 and available in Arkansas, Kansas, and Missouri the following week. The summer seasonal will replace Revival Red Ale, Marshall’s spring seasonal, on draft at a limited number of locations throughout the state. The next in the series, Oktoberfest Lager, will be released the first week of September.
