I stopped in at Cabin Boys Brewery in Tulsa Oklahoma. The bartender recommended The Hallows Tripel and I also just had to try the Bearded Theologian Quad. Delicious and Delicious. I don’t drink a lot of Belgian ales but these were outstanding and make me want more. Both complex, sweet, malty and solid. These would go great with food and would keep you warm on a cold winter night.
I stopped in at Renaissance Brewing Company in Tulsa, Oklahoma to try their beers. I tried their Bold Gold a Belgian Golden Strong ale which is exactly what it says it is. Belgian, so you get the sweetness associated with that. A very solid beer. And I also tried the Dragons Breath with jalapeno peppers. Hot. This is a great beer. You need to be prepared for the heat. I was. And I loved it. I wish I had more time to enjoy this more slowly with chips or some food. Would have been awesome.
I stopped in at Bricktown Brewery in Tulsa, Oklahoma for dinner and a beer. I enjoyed their S x SW Cobb Salad with barbeque on it and their Three Guardsmen IPA was a good pairing. The IPA was hazy, full of flavor, and a good match for the flavorful food. Great food and drink!
I stopped in at Prairie Brewpub in Tulsa, Oklahoma to try their beers. The beer I was most interested in is BOMB. This must be the most complex beer I’ve tried and I’ve tried a lot of beers in the last ten years (at over 500 breweries). BOMB is an Imperial Stout aged on espresso beans, chocolate, vanilla beans and ancho chile peppers. Sipping this fantastic beer is a taste treat. Each of those flavors is present and can be distinguished. Although it sounds like a lot going on, and it is, it tastes fabulous and those flavors complement each other and make for a delicious beer. This was a great way to end the evening.
I stopped in at Elgin Park in Tulsa Oklahoma for lunch and a beer. I enjoyed their Greek Salad and Hey Bitter, Bitter ESB. Nice salad and nice beer.
