A Message From COOP Ale Works

"The flavor of the water has direct impact on the flavor of the beer. If the water doesn’t taste good, neither will our products. We are lucky in Oklahoma City to have some of the best tasting water in the country. However, there is some variability in mineral content, so we analyze our incoming supply weekly and adjust brewing water so that our beers can stay as consistent as possible.

When we think about most of the water supply being from man-made municipal sources, the thought of forests is rarely in the equation. Understanding the origin of where our ingredients come from are equally important as understanding their purpose in our products.

For example, we send a group of staff (everyone from sales and marketing to production to accounting) to Yakima Valley, Washington to learn and observe the hop harvest. While educational, it also elicits a sense of respect for the people curating the ingredients to make our products. Thus, why we’re excited to be a part of the OktoberForest Campaign.     

COOP’s charitable efforts are focused on our four core areas of giving: animal welfare, arts & education, health & outdoor living and organizations directly impacting the communities we serve.

It (our outdoor activity) starts with biking, sometimes to work (an easy 10 miles), and sometimes 100 miles around neighboring Tulsa for their annual Tulsa Tough Race. Add in a few half marathons and a rock climber or two, and you have our entire COOP staff described. For living in the “flat state” we’ve found ways to climb, bike, hike and everything in between. "
