Default Going pro in Oklahoma - Roughtail Brewing Co.

Hey everybody,

I havent been posting for awhile....because I've spent the past year going through the process of opening up a new brewery in Oklahoma City!!

I just wanted to let everybody know that we're coming, especially all the Okies on the forum!

My business partner and I wrote our business plan last September, spent a solid 6 months fundraising, and have reached the point where we have a signed lease on a building, a 7bbl system that is bought and paid for in transit (should be here late December), have full brand development working with a great local firm, are in final review with the TTB, and expect to be in production by January!!

Check us out on the Facebook, www.facebook.com/Roughtailbeer

I hope to have more info to share soon, thanks for reading!!

Oh yeah I can't wait to try some of your professionally brewed beer. I hope it is as good as the stuff from your garage.

It'll be better!! You're going to have to make the trip down and do a brew day on the big system. I'm shipping your shirt tomorrow.

Is that a gecko? Those things are great. Never saw one outside FL or HI though. Glad it's not a condom reference or a deer hunting reference. Though weirdly it would make more sense...

Yeah, the Roughtail Gecko is found in the southwest region....we thought his badass demeanor perfectly personifies our style:

We are right above Texas . Anyway, that is awesome! I am currently near the Tulsa area as well. You said production is gonna start in January, is there anyway to get our hands on any of your beer before then? Would love to check it out. And congratulations on taking the leap and starting up your own business. I hope you both do well.
