Our first beers were brewed in the bathtub of Italian immigrants for the coal-mining clientele of a southeast Oklahoma restaurant (yum, right?). Back then, it was illegal to sell or even possess beer in our state, but we did it anyway because we were super badass. Choc Beer, short for Choctaw Beer, was the colloquial name for those homebrewed beers that we were originally serving illegally from Pete’s Place – the Italian restaurant that is still crankin’ out fresh pasta and lamb fries in Krebs, Oklahoma today.
