Oh, come on, get your head out of the way Oklahoma once was during the 1990's and earlier.

Hope this helps.

BTW, for some reason, even though Fat Tire apparently isn't sold in Oklahoma, the Fat Tire beer bottle labels have the OK+ tax stamp. So, the question is, ARE they now selling Fat Tire in Oklahoma? I can't answer that, as I am in exile in Texas.

The OK+ on bottles has to do something with recycling? right? From what I've read here, you'll get more money recycling OK+ bottles than ones without OK+. Is that a fair assumption? any recyclers out there? do you have to separate your OK+ bottles from your other bottles?

I don't know where you get that from. We recently moved here from NJ (Philly metro area), and my clock is running just fine, thank you very much.

You can get some beers in OK, but not all. SOme specialty brewpubs have fat tire and other things. But I often go to KS or TX to get some stronger or microbrews not available for home consumption.

They do have backazz liquor rules here.

No where near as bad as Utah, or some of the states in the northeast. Have you ever tried to buy ANY alcohol in Kansas on Sunday? No. Not even 3.2 beer.

Just to stir things up a teensy bit, is Grolsch sold in OK? I really like it, and I haven't had any since I left AK.
