OKLAHOMA CITY - After two years of hard work, a local brewery has come up with a new product that will allow them to reach more Oklahomans.

Where we used to have to buy local beers from liquor stores or bars, soon we will be able to purchase them in convenience stores and grocery stores.

Coop Ale Works is debuting three new 3.2 beers to the public Friday night at the H & 8th Night Market for Halloween.

From a crisp and colorful Belgian-style table beer, to a rich and malty brown ale with a touch of chocolate and caramel, thirsty Oklahomans can look forward to buying these local craft beers in well over 500 stores in the metro.

"We're hopefully going to be at the Sam's and neighborhood markets where you'll see it in volume and at really good prices," said JD Merryweather.

Under Oklahoma law, with a wholesalers license, breweries can sell their products in certain stores as long as they don't exceed 3.2% alcohol content.

Coop Ale Works has a total of nine beers now after being open and operating for six years.

"The markets shifting that way. It's shifting towards a lot of lighter alcohol beers for people. They want to be able to drink a few more," said Merryweather.

Cans have been printed and are being filled, getting ready for Oklahomans to crack a cold one.

Shoppers can expect the craft beers in stores this November.
