Uncommonly revealing

Grenache, a ubiquitous grape most often used in blends, nudges its way onto state shelves and menus.


Food and Drink Features

Greg Horton
Depending on whom you believe, Grenache (Garnacha in Spain) is either the first, second or fourth most common grape in the world. The grape is relatively easy to grow and is one of the most frequently blended grapes in the world.

Music

Spring-activated

To keep their brands fresh, Oklahoma brewers pour a bevy of new beers into the market to appeal to shifting palates.


Food and Drink Features

Charles Martin
There’s nothing like Oklahoma spring storms to wash away the dust left over from the waning days of winter. For beer drinkers, this means switching up their selection by cycling out the seasonal porters and stouts.
