The Thirsty Beagle


New labels released for Marshall, Prairie, Huebert

New labels are making the rounds for several Oklahoma breweries.

First, we have Marshall’s newest beer, Black Dolphin Imperial Stout. A preview of this beer was available at International Stout day events last month and several other selected fests. Marshall’s Wes Alexander earlier described the beer like this: “Black Dolphin Stout is named for the world’s most severe maximum-security prison, located in Russia. BDS is a whiskey-barrel-aged Russian imperial stout with an ominous beginning.”

Here’s the label:

Next up is a new label from Prairie Artisan Ales for Birra Farmhouse Ale. Brewmaster Chase Healey describes the beer like this: “Our sessionable farmhouse ale. This will land in stores (4-packs) and on tap in January. Birra is perfect with food! Crisp with notes of black pepper and orange. Birra will be available in all markets we currently sell beer.”

Here is the label:

And Huebert has rolled out several labels in a growing list of flavored beers:

And here’s one non-local new beer I found interesting: Anchor appears to be ready to introduce an IPA — it would be the first time they’ve released a beer labeled so overtly as an IPA.
