Marshall Brewing CEO and Brewmaster Eric Marshall will be on hand in Mobile for the commissioning ceremony. “I am humbled that friend to Marshall Brewing and ship’s Sponsor and Commissioning Committee co-chair, former Tulsa Mayor Kathy Taylor asked us to brew a beer celebrating the USS Tulsa. We are proud to help spread the word of the USS Tulsa throughout our community,” explained Marshall.
USS Tulsa Oatmeal IPA
This newfangled IPA was brewed to commemorate the christening of the USS Tulsa. Modern hops Citra, Galaxy, Nelson Sauvin and Topaz combine to offer notes of dark fruit, citrus, passionfruit and peach. While the hops provide a strong pleasing aroma, they offer far less bitterness than West Coast IPA styles. Oatmeal is added during the brewing process to add depth and mouthfeel to the USS Tulsa making her agile yet formidable. Alcohol by volume (ABV) checks in at 6.2% while the International Bittering Units (IBU) are measured at a reasonable 70.
Marshall Brewing Company began offering beer commercially in May of 2008 ushering in a new era of Tulsa brewing. Employing a production model, Marshall Brewing Company focuses on handcrafting full strength ales and lagers.
