News abounds on Oklahoma beer scene

This is shaping up to be a pretty newsy week for Oklahoma beer.

For starters, Marshall Brewing has a tour/tasting scheduled for Saturday, featuring the popular summer seasonal Arrowhead Pale Ale.

Is it just me, or is this year’s Arrowhead tasting a little more malty than in years past? Maybe my hop threshold is too high now? Anyway, tours are noon to 4 p.m. at the brewery. In addition, Marshall has cooked up a couple special versions of Arrowhead, including:

-Arrowhead Pale Ale with fresh peaches and dried apricots

-Arrowhead Pale Ale with Galangal, Kaffir lime leaf, and lemongrass

Both sound like winners.

-In other news, Mustang Brewing announced this week that they have hired Bricktown Brewery brewmaster Mark Carter away to join the Mustang team. From their FB page:

“Please join us in welcoming Mark Carter to the Mustang Brewing Co. team! Mark will lead day-to-day operations of the new brewhouse. He spent the past 13 years brewing for Bricktown Brewery. We are excited to have him on board!”

-Prairie Artisan Ales announced they will begin distribution in Brazil. Plans appear to include distribution of Bomb!, Birra, Funky Gold Mosaic and Prairie Ale.

-Dead Armadillo recently celebrated its 1-year anniversary, and in lieu of a big celebration or anniversary beer, they said to keep your eyes peeled for big news within the week. Do we see a new brewhouse on the horizon?

-Prairie is working up a new beer called Prairie Table — a 4% “Hop Burst Pale Ale.”

-TapWerks announced a few additions to its tap lineup: Anchor IPA and Summer Beer, Full Sail Brewing Session and Anderson Valley Summer Solstice.

-Mustang has scheduled a brewery tour/tasting for Friday, June 13.

-And lastly, I got a chance for an early sample of Boulevard’s latest version of Love Child — Love Child No. 4.

The American wild ale is brewed with Brett and Lacto and aged in whiskey and wine barrels. It hits with a tart punch. I didn’t have the chance to jot down tasting notes or form any kind of scientific analysis of the beer, but I can say this: I’m not a generally a sour fan, but I found this beer quite enjoyable. It’s expected to ship out this week, so look for it in stores soon.
