Prairie Artisan Ales has shipped Pirate Okie, a 12.6 percent ABV imperial brown ale aged in rum barrels. The new beer from the Tulsa, Okla.-based brewery uses Prairie’s Okie (12 percent ABV) as its base.
Okie was first released in 750ml bottles in 2013 and again two years later in early 2015 packaged in 12-ounce bottles. In addition, the brewery released Coffee Okie in December 2015, an 11 percent ABV version aged in oak whiskey barrels for six months and conditioned on coffee beans. 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 the beer label, Pirate Okie is packaged in 12-ounce bottles and is being produced at Krebs Brewing Co. in Krebs, Okla.
