What a wonderful day for Oklahoma beer culture. The Barrels and Mash crew made a small circuit of OKC breweries to celebrate the first day of SB 424 taking effect.

A rare India Pale Ale from the good folks at Prairie Artisan Ales! I love the label on this, very spooky. Before now, Phantasmagoria was only available in a very limited amount on draft only. Mostly in Tulsa too, lucky stiffs. Anyway, I’m looking forward to digging in to Prairie’s first double IPA. Company: Prairie […]Read more "Review: Prairie Artisan Ales Phantasmagoria"
