Attendees to Prairie Artisan Ales’ first Little Festival on the Prairie event will be walking away with a very special beer.
The appropriately named Little Festival on the Prairie Ale is a whiskey barrel-aged imperial stout conditioned on toasted coconut, cacao nibs and toasted pecans before being packaged in 12-ounce bottles.
Little Festival on the Prairie is being organized by Prairie Artisan Ales and McAlester Makers, Inc., which is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to “promote economic stability and growth by cultivating and equipping local entrepreneurs, artisans, and the community they live in.”
Per the festival website, two bottles of the imperial stout will be included for each ticket purchased to the event, which is taking place on April 27 in McAlester, Okla.
Tickets to the festival costs $125 and include:
- Access to the festival
- Unlimited two-ounce pours
- A commemorative tasting glass
- Two 12-ounce bottles of Little Festival on the Prairie Ale
According to Prairie, more than 40 breweries have confirmed they are pouring during Little Festival on the Prairie, including such notables as Bottle Logic Brewing, Jester King Brewery, Perennial Artisan Ales, The Veil Brewing, Trillium Brewing Co. and Weldwerks Brewing Co.
Last month, Prairie had filed a label for a beer with the same name with the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB), that was an imperial stout aged in apple brandy, bourbon and rum barrels before being packaged in 12-ounce bottles.
