Marshall makes tweak to sampling/tour schedule

by Nick Trougakos Published: January 7, 2014

Marshall Brewing has been going gung-ho in the sampling/tour department since House Bill 1341 passed, enabling brewers to offer on-site samples.

Now the Tulsa brewery has announced it will refine its tour schedule. Here’s an update from the Marshall website:

2013 brought many changes at Marshall Brewing, but none as fun and slightly overwhelming as the success of HB 1341 and the privilege of offering brewery tours and samples. HB 1341 took effect November 1st, 2013. Our plan for November and December (was) to be open as much as possible to offer the opportunity for those interested … in touring. In the two months we saw over 2,000 … craft beer fans.

For 2014 we have decided to refine our dates. We will be offering tours the first and third Saturday of each month. In addition to the new tour schedule we will augment with some additional dates scheduled around special releases. Thank you all for your interest in Marshall Brewing and craft beer. Cheers!

So, that means the next tour at Marshall will be noon to 4 p.m. Jan. 18.

Marshall will continue its practice of contributing proceeds from the sale of commemorative snifters to charity. The charity for January is the Tulsa SPCA.

Pints and Pins

-Federal filings show Mustang has registered a label for a new beer:

Hoplahoma is somewhat of a mystery beer at this point. Mustang President Tim Schoelen confirmed the beer is still in development and they are not yet willing to divulge details — but you have to like the name and imagery. I’ll keep you posted as I learn more about this one.

-Last Thursday night’s pint night at TapWerks slipped by me in the holiday rush, but it was interesting because it was Goose Island Matilda. Sofie is in-state in kegs as well, so keep your eyes open at your fave establishment if you like Goose Island’s non-Oklahoma-liquor-store offerings.

-McNellie’s OKC has scheduled a Left Hand beer dinner for Jan. 21. The cost is $40 per person. For reservations, email

-Prairie Artisan Ale’s newest beer, Birra Farmhouse Ale, has been approved for kegs in Oklahoma, so look for that on tap in the next month or so.

-Several local liquor stores are reporting new beers in stock today and tomorrow: Sierra Nevada Ovila Abbey Ale; Ommegang Adoration; Rogue Voodoo Doughnut Chocolate, Peanut Butter & Banana Ale; COOP F5 IPA (fresh); Left Hand Sawtooth Nitro; and Widdershins Oak Aged Barleywine Ale.

-A group recently put out a list of the top 20 most influential beer websites. I understand The Thirsty Beagle just missed the cut.
