Both Coop Ale Works and Mustang Brewing Company have released limited-production seasonal beers.
Oklahoma City-based Coop is releasing a barley wine for the first time. The Territorial Reserve Barley Wine was aged in second-run Jack Daniels barrels for seven months. The alcohol came in at just over 11 percent by volume, which is high for a beer but consistent with a barley wine style.
JD Merryweather, Coop’s owner, said the brewery had made 1,524 bottles and only 35 kegs. The barley wine is already available in Oklahoma stores and is on tap at Tapwerks, 121 E. Sheridan, in Bricktown.
Coop also released Oktoberfest, a traditional Märzen, which are historically brewed in the spring and conditioned for drinking by Oktoberfest.
The brew is available only on tap at The Wedge Deep Deuce, 230 N.E. First, McNellie’s, 1100 Classen Drive, and Tapwerks.
Mustang Brewing Company released Vienna Märzen Lager and Harvest Lager this month. The Vienna is only available on tap for a limited time at McNellie’s, Fuzzy’s in Bricktown, 208 Johnny Bench Drive, and Club One15, 115 E. Sheridan.
The Harvest Lager is a black Märzen variation, available in six-pack bottles in metro liquor stores through November. If not available, most stores can order it for the following day.
