Roughtail Brewing Co. – Everything Rhymes with Orange

It’s not everyday you can find ERWO in the liquor store.  It pours hazy, smells citrusy, and finishes with a mildly bitter taste.  Well, mild for Roughtail.  They love hops. It’s definitely still tastes like an IPA. And to top it off, I assumed there Mosaic (my favorite hop strain) was used…and, according to their website, I was totally right. It was a small victory for my confidence in beer tasting.

The Roughtail guys are great dudes and are based out of Midwest City, OK.  I think they distribute in Kansas but I’m not sure if they’ve expanded elsewhere yet.

COOP Ale Works – Gran Sport Porter

It was 32 degrees last night in Oklahoma!  Finally some fall weather.  It’s the perfect time to post about Gran Sport Porter, a smooth dark beer with notes of dark chocolate and coffee. It’s one of the easiest drinking beers of COOP’s lineup (and was one of the first beers they ever produced!).  No strong aftertaste, no bitterness, just an incredibly soothing beer. It’s now available in several states…

Check out this bulky sweater I plan on wearing to Thanksgiving….It’s more grunge looking than this photo shows. It looks awesome with leather leggings and platform boots.
