Lazy Magnolia now available in Oklahoma

Yet another out-of-state brewery has made its way into the Oklahoma beer market.

Mississippi's Lazy Magnolia is now available -- or should be available soon -- at Oklahoma liquor stores.

Lazy Magnolia is best known for its Southern Pecan Nut Brown Ale, but also offers a lineup featuring Jefferson Stout Sweet Potato Cream Stout, Lazy Saison Belgian Pale Wheat Ale, Southern Hops'pitality IPA and Timber Beast Rye IPA.

They also feature some seasonal releases, like Backwoods Belgian Golden Ale. Lazy Magnolia officially launched in Oklahoma on Aug. 3, but it appears the beers are making a somewhat slow roll-out across the state. As usual, call ahead to your local liquor store if you're interested.

In other local beer news, couple interesting tid-bits to pass your way from the beer rumor mill. First, word on the street is that Republic Gastropub will build a new location in Chisholm Creek -- that's the massive development going in on the south side of Memorial between Penn and Western, where the Top Golf is.

Second, I heard that The Patriarch may be looking into filing some new paperwork to amend the way they deal with their food trucks. What does that mean to you? It means they could take a page out of the Bleu Garten's business playbook, which would lead to The Patriarch becoming a kid-friendly location. Stay tuned for more info on that.

Moving on, before heading off to today's bullet points, I wanted to give a tip o' the ol' cap to TapWerks for hosting an excellent IPA Day celebration last Thursday. The approach of having the beers served in waves, and with the option to buy flights, was great. And it was great to see how many Oklahoma beers were available. I believe 18 out of the 20 special IPAs offered were Oklahoman. Wasn't too long ago that we barely had 18 Oklahoma-made beers, let alone 18 IPAs.

Pints and Pins

-The Anthem/Prairie beer dinner set for Aug. 17 at Oak & Ore is sold out. Just a heads up: This is a private event and the restaurant will be closed to the public from 7 to 10 p.m. that night.

-Your lineup of pint nights today for the McNellie's pubs: Belhaven Scottish in Oklahoma City; Roughtail Pale Ale in Tulsa; Marshall Tough Love IPA at Tulsa-South; and in the "Are we even trying anymore?" category, Carlsberg in Norman.
