The folks at Mustang Brewing Co. look like they may be up to their necks in grain and hops this year based on the latest filings with the federal board that approves beer labels.
The Oklahoma City brewery was approved for no less than 19 new labels recently with the U.S. Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau.
The labels, all for kegs, show a wide array of styles could be coming down the pipe for Mustang. Let’s have a look at what was approved. Not all of the specific styles were evident from the labels, but I’ve got a question out to Mustang HQ for a some clarification:
-Old Deckboard (9.5% ABV)
-May Day (6.5% ABV)
-Inside Out Stout (6% ABV)
-Inside Out Stout (4% ABV)
-5th Anniversary Ale (9% ABV)
-Session Saison (4% ABV)
-Black Rye Farmhouse (7% ABV)
-Black Rye Farmhouse (4% ABV)
-Belgian Sytle Dark (10.5% ABV)
-Black Steam (7% ABV)
-Weizenbock (8.2% ABV)
-Belgian Style Trippel (8% ABV)
-Old Country Ale (6.5% ABV)
-Scotch Ale (8.5% ABV)
-Smoked Amber (6% ABV)
-Red Rye Saison (7.8% ABV)
-Imperial Baltic Porter (9% ABV)
-RF (9% ABV)
-India Style Red Ale (7.5% ABV)
Clearly that will call for a lot of brewing! What is most interesting to me is Mustang’s strategy with these labels, especially for the Inside Out Stout, Black Rye Farmhouse and Session Saison. What are the plans for making the same beer in different strengths? One industry insider I spoke to suggested Mustang may be eying a plan to offer take-home growlers at their tap room. Another question I had was will we see any of these offerings in bottles? Like I said earlier, I’ve got a question out to Mustang for some elaboration, and I’ll keep you updated as I learn more.
