It's Beer Label Friday, Vol. 3

Happy Friday, y'all! We've seen another wild week of beer label from our Oklahoma brewers. Let's take a look at what's been going on:

First, we have what I believe is the first non-kegged offering from Norman's (405) Brewing, Grapefruit Sour:


If you've not had this one, it's worth picking up -- especially for these hot, dog days of summer. Really refreshing beer. They're targeting a mid-August release for these 750 ml bottles.

Next, we've got another impressive round of labels from Elk Valley, who apparently is brewing around the clock. Fist off, we have two bottled offerings -- 2015 Experimental Imperial IPA and Le Ferme Farmhouse Ale:



Next, more cans, including a cousin to Summer Ale, Lake Ale, Mashie Scottish Style Ale and Schank Berliner Style Weisse Ale: 




And finally from Elk Valley, we have a keg collar for Par 3 IPA, presumably ahead of its debut at next Thursday's IPA Day celebration at TapWerks:


We also have an offering from Mustang, out of its renewed production partnership with Choc Beer Co.:


And finally, in the spirit of inclusiveness, there's this new offering from Huebert Brewing:


That's a nice collection, for sure. Just a word of caution on labels -- and you may have heard me say this before, but it's worth repeating -- the approval of a label by the feds does not pinpoint a release date, or even guarantee the beer will make it market. But they're neat to look at and daydream about.
