Tough shiat.
The brewer should've read the paperwork on what beer he's allowed to brew with what permit.
The brewer screwed himself.

justajonesin: oklahoma beer is 3.2 percent as opposed to the exact same beer in texas which is at least 5.0 percent. when i was in a band from texas playing in oklahoma we'd drink beer all night and not get drunk, on the flip side it was always fun to watch the oklahoma bands come to texas and just get trashed stupid drunk on our beer...


Could be worse, you could have moved to Colorado their beer is weaker than ours!!


Q: How is Oklahoma beer like making love in a canoe?
A: effing close to water!!

I'm guessing KJRH.  It's not like anybody watches them, especially thanks to Cock Cable putting them on some other channel.  They did that with WGN, too.  I used to watch both a lot when I was in Kellyville and they were on the right channels...

It works like Canada, except we have off-sales in a limited set of circumstances for places that aren't bars and liquor stores.  If you want the good stuff, go hit a Beer Store.  If you want it cold now (or if it's Sunday and you didn't plan ahead), go down to the QuikTrip and get yourself a bag of tallboys.

we didn't realize that and a few years ago rented a cool house on a river in Arkansas. Showed up and were looking for a liquor store. Oops. Dry country. We had to drive about 30 miles to get it.


Yup. When I retired from my first career my wife and I briefly considered moving to Mena, Arkansas...until learning that much of the western part of the State is dry.

Sure, you may get stuck buying 3.2 swill in an Albertson's (F the Mormons), but all you have to do is go to a liquor store to buy real beer.

DanTheMan1024: The Stealth Hippopotamus: Sometimes I hate this town....

The liquor laws here are just retarded, I wouldn't force the ABLE commission on my worst enemy.


Actually, the laws are getting less retarded.  If I understand correctly, Oklahoma didn't allow brewing beer ("strong point", greater than 3.2%) at all until fairly recently.  Some recent law (you care enough, you'll look it up yourself) added that ability, as well as several new, related licenses.  These guys got cross-ways with ABLE because they didn't spring for the right license.

Probably was this guy.

"I can't drink any other beer, my sensitivity is too strong! Eeennngggg!"

PBR would be too strong to legally sell in Oklahoma.  And there are no hipsters in Oklahoma.  And mocking hipster beer tastes is amusing, since it is them who have kind of popularized the craft brew movement to the point where you can get decent shiat in a suburban grocery store in Texas.


Indeed, I've been pleasantly surprised by the lovely new flavors Shiner's been cranking out -- and I can usually find a passable (though not exotic) stout or porter at even the smaller HEB stores. And Spec's has a nice, big store on my way home from work.

CSB:

Many years back I traveled to Snyder Texas with some co-workers for a week long dog-and-pony show for a major oil company. As we rolled up to a mini-mart, you can imagine our horror when we found out it was  a dry county. I didn't even know such a thing existed. Crushed and burdened with the thought of a whole week in this hellhole sans alcohol, we drove back to our hotel room to contemplate our miserable existence in eerie silence. As we were removing our bags from the car one of our group pulled in a bit late to the parking lot. Before he even got out of his car we broke the horrific news to him.  He just smiled, went to the back of his rental car and popped the trunk.  Inside was about 8 cases of beer he picked up prior to entering the county.  Seems our esteemed colleague had been to Snyder before and came prepared.  He didn't pay for dinner that whole week.

Yes. From a State that has dry counties and used to have to trek to Ohio because their drinking age law, at the time, were 18 for that ridiculous 3.2 beer The bartenders didn't care) I can tell you that vestiges of Prohibition still exist and they are a gigantic pain in the @$$

Hell, Mississippi didn't repeal state-wide Prohibition until 1966, and even then left it to the county and cities, as was common throughout the bible belt.

When one encounters "strong beer" whom does one call? An even more pressing question; If one encounters "strong beer" would not one complain to the proprietor of said establishment, rather than some government agency? Apparently not in Oklahoma.
