I had a chance to catch up with Wes Alexander, the director of sales and marketing for Marshall Brewing Co., and he passed along some interesting happenings for the Tulsa brewery.
-Marshall’s new imperial stout, Black Dolphin, was expected to be bottled early this week and should hit stores by the end of the week. Black Dolphin is a whiskey-barrel-aged Russian imperial stout.
-The barrels once filled by Black Dolphin have now been filled with a new beer — a hoppy Belgian pale ale.
-Marshall will bring back its occasional Munich Dunkel in the spring and roll it out as a year-round beer.
-They’re also planning a quarterly Single-Hop Pils Series.
-And in very exciting news, Alexander said Marshall will look invade the Red River and expand distribution into north Texas in 2014.
Now if I can just convince Marshall to go year-round with its Klaus Hefeweizen, we’d really be cooking with gas.
Pints and Pins
