Coop Ale Works
4745 Council Heights Road |405-842-2667

COOP’s Peach Pageant flavor is so subtle you almost don’t realize you’re drinking beer until you’ve entered the second half of it. At 4.1 percent ABV, this selection is a most sessionable choice, a Berliner weisse (if you couldn’t tell from the name, this one is brewed with peaches). To be honest, the peach is only slightly noticeable, but that doesn’t keep this one from being excessively drinkable.
