9.22.17 - Oktoberfest Time!!
Join us Friday September 29 for an Oktoberfest celebration!
9.8.17 - Perfect Strangers Bottle Release
Bottles of our CBAO collaboration beer will be released tomorrow September 9 starting at Noon. Perfect Strangers began as Belgian pale-style wort from Prairie Artisan Ales in Krebs, Oklahoma. The unfermented wort was then transported to our facility in Norman and introduced to freshly emptied BBW barrels, our barrel-aged barleywine. We inoculated the barrels with our Brett and pseudo Brett yeast strains, and five month later added raspberries and blackberries for secondary fermentation. A bourbon barrel of BBW was added to the final blend. Named from the 1980's television show "Perfect Strangers", this beer is like hugging your cousin. You've never tried anything like it before, but it feels so right.

8.3.17 - National IPA Day is here. New Beer at the Taproom!
(405) Brewing Co. went two years without making an IPA. "There are too many good IPA's in Oklahoma" we said. Well, we had enough requests for an IPA that we came up with a plan. Our first release was Last Friday Night. Named from the Katy Perry song Trae was listening to at the time. It was such a success that Trae decided to brew another song inspired IPA, Yeah!. Here we are on IPA Day and the taproom will be the first place you can get our new IPA, named of course after a song - Cruel Summer (Bananarama). Brewed with pineapples and fermented with a French yeast strain, this IPA has a citrus-forward taste with subtle notes of tropical fruit, complex farmhouse-esq flavor and mild tartness. (405) Brewing taproom is open from 4-8PM.
