There is a new version of Prairie Artisan Ales’ Okie coming next month.
The Tulsa, Okla.-based brewery will be releasing Coffee Okie, an 11 percent ABV imperial brown ale that has been aged in oak whiskey barrels for six months and conditioned on coffee beans. The new beer uses Prairie’s Okie (12 percent ABV) as its base before adding the coffee beans, which were sourced from a “local Tulsa coffee roaster,” according to Wesley Morrison, brand ambassador for Prairie.
Okie was first released in 750ml bottles in 2013 and again earlier this year in 12-ounce bottles. In 2014, the brewery released Brouwerij Okie (7 percent ABV), but that was a different beer entirely, a sour amber ale aged in red wine barrels.
According to Morrison, Coffee Okie will be packaged in 12-ounce bottles and will released in December across Prairie’s entire distribution footprint.
The beer is being produced at Krebs Brewing Co. in Krebs, Okla.
