You might be surprised to hear what Chase Healey and his team were brewing up on a recent Wednesday morning when John Holl called down to the brewery. Healey founded American Solera as a wood project that would let time and microbes do their thing followed by some expert blending. 

But the beer industry has changed in the years since Healy opened up his location in Tulsa, Oklahoma and so the brewery has changed and adapted. This means a lot of pilsners, IPAs, and even some of the stouts that he was previously known for.

His city has changed as well. Alcohol laws were loosened a few years ago and now the state is trying to catch up – beer wise – with the rest of the country and managing quite well. Healey talks about moving to a new location with brewers as neighbors and customers eager to find out what’s next.
