Treasure hunting North of the border

Looking fresh...

not quite so fresh...

kinda pathetic...

Flatrock is in a town just North of the Kansas border, which meant I had a chance at finding brews unavailable in Oklahoma. But would these little small town package stores carry anything besides Bud and Keystone Light? Not to worry, Blue Sky Liquor in Caney had five varieties of New Belgium. Further down the street, Jo's liquor (the size of a closet) had Free State, Odell and New Belgium. Cases of them! Something tells me I'm not the only Okie to come through here.

Odell is one of those consistently solid breweries. I have yet to try anything that wasn't memorable from these guys. St Lupulin is a summer seasonal, a hoppy "extra" pale ale. It goes down nice and easy; grapefruit juice followed with a bite with and just a wee bit of malt underneath. This is basically a lighter version of their IPA.
