In 2007, Eric returned to Tulsa to begin laying the groundwork for his own brewery. Marshall Brewing Company, Tulsa’s first production craft microbrewery, which began operations in spring 2008. “Before we opened Marshall Brewing in 2008, I knew that we would offer some traditional German-style beers. Truthfully, I brewed the Old Pavilion Pilsner and Oktoberfest Lagers so I could enjoy fresh lager,” explains brewmaster Eric Marshall.
German-style Draft Offerings:
Old Pavilion Pilsner
Each of these beers is brewed with 100% German malt, hops and yeast.
Klaus is a German-style Hefeweizen named for the patriarch of Brewmaster Eric Marshall’s host family while studying and apprenticing in Germany. A creamy head offers aromas of banana and bubblegum created by the traditional German ale yeast used during fermentation. This yeast is left in the beer to both provide flavor and the cloudiness typical of a German-style wheat beer. Following the aroma, Klaus features a medium body and a light sweetness on the palate to create a refreshing and effervescent session beer.
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.
