You certainly can find a lot to do around Tulsa when you’re looking for a new career. For the past couple of months I’ve had the pleasure of bottling beers at the Prairie brewery in Tulsa.
It’s been a rewarding experience to say the least and getting to hear the dialogue between Chase and Jake about brewing tidbits or Wes and Collin joke about new beer names and labels. It’s a small, tight-knit family that comes together and builds this massive movement in the craft beer industry. As we joked in the episode sometimes you get down to 2 people running the bottling line because the phone never stops ringing and the e-mail inbox is always full.
The perks of a long hard day are worth it but you have to be on your feet all day, eventually covered in water and sticky beer and lift heavy cases. As always most see it as a labor of love for a well hand-crafted product. It’s a great feeling to know something I helped bottle will be shared around the country and more importantly is putting Oklahoma on the craft beer map.
