Prairie Artisan Ales has released two beers: one new and one old.
The two beers from the Tulsa, Okla.-based brewery are Prairie Flare, a 7 percent ABV gose-style ale brewed with orange and coriander, and Vanilla Noir, a 12.5 percent ABV imperial stout aged in whiskey barrels for “about half a year” before being “dosed with vanilla beans.”
While Prairie Flare is a new beer, Vanilla Noir was released for the first time in late 2013. Since then, there have been four additional variants on the Noir base beer: Coffee Noir (11.5 percent ABV), Pirate Noir (12 percent ABV), Wine Barrel Noir (11 percent ABV) and Apple Brandy Noir (12 percent ABV).
According to a post on Prairie’s blog, both Prairie Flare (16.9-ounce bottles) and Vanilla Noir (12-ounce bottles) were released Friday and have already started showing up on retailer’s shelves.
Emails sent to the brewery for additional information was not returned.
