COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Choc beer was named after its place of origin, the Choctaw Nation. The Choctaw people brewed a homemade beer and taught the Italian immigrants, who came to work in the coal mines, how to make the home brew. Pete Pritchard was one of those immigrants. He came to the US with his family in 1903 and began to work in the coal mines at age eleven. At twenty-one years of age, he was nearly killed in a mine accident. After the accident, Pete Pritchard began making and selling choc beer, along with sausages and cheese in his home in Krebs. A prosperious business developed and in 1925, Peter formally opened a restaurant in his home. Pete's Place Restaurant served choc beer until 1932 when Pete was arrested for the brew.

In 1964, Bill Prichard, the sone of the original owner, developed a "gentleman's agreement" with the powers that be about the illegal choc beer...until a statewide newspaper ran a front page, headline story about the agreement. That was the end of choc beer at Pete's until Joe Prichard, Bill's son who now wears the chef's hat and has the choc beer recipe, reintroduced choc beer as a legal brew in 1995.

Choc brand beer is brewed in small batches in our brewery using the finest ingredients. Starting with beer-perfect Krebs water, we blend American Malted Barley, wheat, and roasted malts with American-grown Liberty and Cascade hops to create more than just a beer... a legendary Choc beer is unfiltered, so all the flavor we create stays where it belongs. And since it's unfiltered, you may notice a cloudy haze in the beer. This is normal. Tradition dictates Choc beer be "bottle-conditions," which means it's fermented a second time in the bottle, as well as aged in the bottle, resulting in a thin layer of yeast at the bottom. You can choose to carefully decant the beer off the yeast, or simply drink it, as we do, and let the yeast travel into your glass. Either way, we hope you enjoy our beer, a handcrafted Krebs original.

UPDATED: SEP 5, 2005 Bottled, thanks beerhandy! Muddy orange with rich but brief head. Estery caramel aroma. Sweet and soft with aromatic crystal malt character surrounded by toffee. Low bitterness. Decidedly the best Oklahoman beer I’ve had...

11th October 2008. GABF. Hazy gold beer. Sharpish citrus but overall this beer feels watery. Nothing much going on here.

Oakes (11798) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 20, 2005
Thanks to mjames for the OK sample!

Opaque, dull amber-tan colour. The aroma is yeasty, with hints of pear skins, light orange and dust. Way overcarbonated, which rather obliterates what little character this bland wheat ale has. The finish has some wheaty moments before fading into Pop Rocks fizzy oblivion.

Bottle courtesy of GT2, thank you sir! Pale hazy yellow color, like infected urine, but with smaller bubbles. Aroma is not unpleasant, it’s just barely detectable. Taste is wet straw.
