My first firkin!
« on: January 15, 2013, 12:18:06 PM »
This Friday marks my first firkin at my favorite local beer bar, TapWerks in Bricktown OKC.  It was collaborative brew with my friends at COOP Aleworks, also of OKC. COOP don't distribute outside of OK, so if you've not made it to one of our liquor stores, then you're missing out on F5 IPA and the Territorial Reserve series.  But back to the firkin; it's my Egyptian recipe that's medaled at Dixie Cup, Foam Cup and the IN State Fair this year. I even made the local news blog.

Can you tell I'm excited?  :D

Probably not. I added it for the flavor, but then again didn't Joseph tell Pharaoh to stockpile corn for 7 years of drought? :D

Nice work, wish I'd got a swig when we were down in Tulsa for FOAM.  If I'm not mistaken yours was the sour on tap, that was a well-done beer.

The wife loves Midas Touch, I bet she'd like your Egyptian beer.
