OK. We've discussed food and coffee. Let's turn our attention to beer...another food group. Can any of you tell everyone about a favorite craft or locally brewed beer that you are proud of?
Marshall's is an awesome brewery in Tulsa. I've thoroughly enjoyed the seasonal Oktoberfest Lager (6.0% ABV) this year. When the keg runs dry on that, I'll go to their Atlas IPA (6.5% ABV). They have other brews but I really enjoy those 2. Since Oklahoma voted in high-point beer this year, 3 other breweries are coming online. The relaxed laws come into effect the summer of 2018.
The liquor laws in OK have been really stupid. The max ABV that can be sold in stores cold is 3.2% (Walmart, grocery, c-Stores). You can buy high point beer in liquor stores but it can't be cold. For this reason, Budweiser will not ship their 5% beers into OK. If you want a cold Bud, it's gotta be a 3.2%.
Needless to say, the independently owned liquor stores are in a quandary as to how they are gonna stay in business. Installing coolers will cause the prices of their cold beers to not be competitive with the Walmarts etc. BTW any one individual cannot own more than 1 liquor store. But surrounding states don't seem to have a problem with this. They'll just have to revise their business model.
