Square-Eclair-header

I know, I know you are probably tired of us sharing about our Cali trip but we simply had such a wonderful time that we want to share every detail! So… with that comes one of our favorite random stops that seriously kept us coming back for more!

Introducing the loveliest little local bakery; Eclair Bakery in Arroyo Grande, California!

We we’re greeted by the nicest tattooed baker I’ve ever met (except for my friend Tom who lives in Portland)! I think it might have had something to do with the fact that he has family in Okemah, OK (represent OK!) but regardless we visited this bakery everyday that we were in Arroyo Grande! Each day we were served by the happiest, most sincere people… the kind that you just wish could be your friends!

The perfect left-brain/right-brain combo Jeremy & Kathleen are  young dreamers who love family and all it’s annoying quirks, appreciate the ideas of simple living and love design in every form and fashion.

I know this might sound juvenile but they are honestly the type of people that just by knowing them you somehow feel cooler! I (Meg) was never in the “cool” group in high school so it’s exciting to get to introduce you to some of our “cool” friends… ;)

They had a little wedding consultation area at the old shop, where my girlfriends and I would look through all the bridal books and dream up our weddings!  The greenhouses were a pretty magical place too. Looking out on a sea of red poinsettias at Christmas is super pretty.” -Katie

Fresh & Local: COOP

Coop-Thumbnail-Final

“COOP Ale Works began with a humble home brewer and a simple dream. The idea spread as friends tasted the unique beers, and the popularity of those early batches encouraged a dedicated team of three partners to begin working to make the dream of a local brewery a reality.  Mark Seibold, JD Merryweather and Daniel Mercer spent the next two years traveling throughout the United States, Europe and Central America visiting breweries and sampling local flavors.  The insight gained from entrepreneurs, brewers, biologists, operations personnel and consumers provided an invaluable basis for a serious endeavor into quality commercial brewing.  By integrating this knowledge with the local, regional and national brewing trends, as well as local feedback, the trio planned the birth and growth of the yet unnamed COOP. After nearly 3 years of research, comprising thousands of man hours and dozens of test batches, COOP fashioned its identity as a steadfast professional team that holds closely a passion for bringing quality, local beer to taps and homes in Oklahoma City and beyond.”
